Yoga Flow: Moving With Side Plank
Here's a little snippet you can try the next time you step on your yoga mat. Use this flow to help you build the strength, stability and balance needed for side planks.
Here's how you can use this snippet. Use it for inspiration if you're developing a home practice. (Sometimes having a little guidance is all you need to start moving.) Repeat each move 10-15 times. Have a vinyasa sequence (or not!) in between, then switch to the other side. Repeat the whole thing a few rounds! For extra challenge, let your drishti (gaze) follow your lifted hand.
If you don't have a yoga block, a stack of books, or any study square object will do.
Stay mindful when flowing like this, and listen to your body. Adapt it as needed, and have fun. The more fun you have while practicing yoga, the more you'll come back to your mat.
