How to do Chaturanga Dandasana

The word ‘Chaturanga Dandasana’ is comes from Sanskrit, in which the meaning of Chatur is “four”, Anga means “limbs”, danda means “staff” and meaning of Asana is seat, pose or posture. In this pose our both hands and both legs are used so that’s why this is called four- limbed staff pose and also known as low plank pose.
Chaturanga strengthens and tones the wrists, arms, abdominal muscles, and lower back. It prepares the body for more challenging arm balances. Similar to a traditional push-up, it also strengthens the muscles surrounding the spine, which helps to improve posture.
