    Hi, I am doing the beginners sequence to revise and make sure that my alignment is right, but I have been doing yoga for a while now and have started to look at the intermediate classes. I really need to strengthen my arms, for example when trying to get into Chaturanga I find I can only bend my arms by about 2 inches before I collapse. Should I do the general strength intermediate class and just modify until I improve the arms, or are there some specific poses that would help?
