We all have our asana problem areas, I suspect.
Mine tend to manifest when I let myself rush — in other words, when I’m thinking about everything I have to do after practice and not about practice (which may just be not thinking, in the end).
In particular, I know I zip through chaturangas and let my breath speed along too shallowly.
This video of Lino Miele, while supposedly about Navasana, continues to catch my attention because of his chaturanga. He holds it for that necessary moment, eyes forward:
Yes, that’s how it is supposed to be done.
There is plenty of advice on chaturanga online, by the way. But perhaps it is the fact that this Miele video is about a different pose that lets his chaturanga shine so brightly.
Not that I’d mind being able to move into Navasana that smoothly.
