    I have to write here again! I thougt that I had no muscles in my arms, so I didn’t do the sun salutation and plank pose… Since I saw your video, I make 3 sun salutation daily, without any pain and quiet easily! I’m so happy! :D Thank you so much Esther :o)

    Thank you so much for the alignment tips, when I practice against a mirror, I can see my body is not in one straight line when doing the plank pose, my shoulder was slumping forward. This video explains how to do it the right way!

    I’ve been doing Yoga and on off for year, but recently wanted to start up really practicing again. I bought your DVD’s, and they are awesome! I did the beginner, and really broke a sweat. I fell asleep on my mat during the relaxation too! Ha! I highly recommend them!

    Thanks for this video, Esther! I’ve been working on Chaturanga, but didn’t feel like I was doing it right. This is just what I needed! :-)

    Working on this right now. Really really helps to do standard army-style pushups to build strength for this – even modified versions from your knees or on an incline. I could never even DREAM of holding this pose 3 months ago, but now that I’ve been doing pushups every chance I get, I can actually hold chaturanga for a few breaths!!! Definitely important to watch those shoulders. Thank you!

    Esther, thank you for this tutorial. I injured my shoulder last year and it took 3 months to heal. Chaturanga has always been a challenge for me, but even more so with the injury. I appreciate your sharing this technique!

    so your posture should be like that of a push up?

    Exactly what I need! :o) Thank you!!!!

    Thanks so much, Esther, for this great video!!! Too often, my shoulders ache after a vigorous routine and now I know why. Besides, it is good to know that sometimes even a teacher of your experience feels like using the knees for support in staff pose.
