Inversion Challenge, Day 1: Planks and Chaturangas

Yoga teacher and former NFL football player Derrick “DJ” Townsel demonstrates proper alignment in Chaturanga and Plank to set up for stronger inversions.

The first step in building strong inversions is working on alignment and engagement in Tabletop before lowering into strength-building Chaturangas and Plank Pose. Bonus if you can add some pushups!

This video is part of a seven-day inversion challenge hosted by yoga teacher and former NFL football player Derrick “DJ” Townsel. Find all the videos in this series here.
