Chataranga – Four limbed pose

Press forward, gaze forward, lower down leading with the chest. 

Downdog – Chataranga – Upward Dog – Chataranga 

From plank pose exhale and lower the body pinning the elbows to the side body

Inhale, bring shoulders & tops of thighs up & away from the floor, tailbone goes to the floor

As you are moving forward bend the elbows but maintain elbows over wrists (note here it may be better for some to have the elbows slightly behind the wrists, encourage students to play around feel what’s right for them without comprising the shoulders or causing collapse)

Synchronise the forward movement with bending the elbows

Exhale, bend the elbows but keep the wrists drawn in & slowly lower 

Inhale, push forward slightly & roll the shoulders back, come to the top of the feet into Upward Dog

Lengthen the neck, create space, open the heart & gaze forward 

It’s really important you maintain stability in the shoulders, do not let them drop. 

3 muscles being worked here, 2 rotator cuffs & back portion of the deltoids 

To try Chataranga lying down – 

Lie on your back, engage arms & legs as above, push through the toes, engage the core, arms at 90 degrees, shoulders down, feel elongation through the back body while pushing through palms 

Modifications – 

Feeling tired, lower the knees

Wrist issues- come onto forearms. 


I was so sad and sorry when my last yoga teacher decided to move home to Italy. I thought I would never find a better teacher & then… I found Chris. She delivers a wonderfully unique class which is a marriage of movement and breath. Her class delivers a complete workout for whatever level you’re at, whilst being easy on the body and calming the mind. I look forward to every class and have never felt stronger or better.

Christine conveys an immense passion for yoga. Her energy is palpable. She also has a discerning understanding of how the body works when practicing yoga. I really enjoy her classes which leave me feeling full of positivity!

Christine is a great yoga teacher and I recommend you give her a go.  She is very spiritual but her love of family and her surroundings come through clearly in her teaching - I have wished so many times to be with her in Dublin on the beach, in the studio, in the park! I have loved her classes via Zoom and her early morning Rise and Shine class has been a fantastic start to my day.  She is very knowledgeable and clearly puts a lot into planning each month and each week. Her classes are well prepared and she takes time to explain positions with variations too so that it is suitable for many levels. Having practised with her for 6 months, she keeps her practice interesting with different themes so that no 2 classes are completely the same.  I am loving my yoga journey with her and look forward to it continuing for many years.

Absolutely love Chris’s yoga classes. It has become a staple part of my week to keep my mind clear and my body right. Chris is a fantastic teacher and I especially enjoy her meditation and reflections during class. Chris herself is such a fantastic person both inside and out and her light is infectious!
