How do you roll over your toes going from Chaturanga to Updog?

This one took me quite a while, so I will answer my own question here and I look forward to hearing others pitch in as well. The only way I was able to make this work is when I started to make sure I was...

What stretches would you recommend for improving thoracic extension?

I’ve never had a great backbend. I used to think it was lack of flexibility in my shoulder, but after doing some research, I think it may be related more to my lack of mobility in my thoracic spine....

Should you have slight arch in your back or no arch at all in chair pose?

When in chair pose, I’ve heard that you don’t want to have that arch in your back like you would when doing squats, but I feel like it is almost impossible to have the amount of pelvic tilt to completely...

In side plank, should your feet be stacked on top of each other or one in front of the other?

When both feet are down, I am not sure if I should stack them or not. I realize that stacking them does not provide as solid of a base, but I didn't know if there was an accepted place for feet.

Do I relax my neck in camel pose?

I never know if I should relax my neck and allow my head to fall back all the way, which doesn't elongate the spine (but opens the neck) or if I should contract my muscles to hold my head in a more neutral...

When in bound side angle, which arm grabs the other arm?

I think I've heard "the arm that wraps is the grabber" but don't both arms wrap to some extent?

How can I get my heels further down in down dog?

I've been practicing for over 10 years mostly consistently, and my heels still do not touch down in down dog unless I walk my feet in closer. Does this mean my calves are too tight? Or hamstrings? Or is...

How do I get a better grip when pulling my foot in for Pigeon?

My foot always slides out of my grip. Is there anything I can do to decrease the potential to snap like a rubber band out of this pose? My flexibility has gotten better over the years, but I still cannot...

Is it possible that some people will never be able to achieve full middle splits?

I've tried inconsistently to get closer to the middle splits for about 25 years. I've never been able to go lower than about 6 inches from the ground. Maybe this pose isn't possible for everyone? I never...
