Day 24 - Side Plank
DAY 24 💫
Side Plank - Vasisthasana
Alignment: Starting in a table top position you can explore two variations here! From table top, lengthen both legs away and find a full plank pose. To build strength through the core and upper body gently sway from side to side, core engaged, thighs firm, tailbone tucked and upper back broadening. You should be able to move the body as one ‘block’ as it were, shift the weight into your left hand. This can be the first variation, just taking deep breaths and holding the body weight into the left hand side, shoulders are inline! To move deeper pivot onto both ankles, they rotate to the left, the pelvis slowly rotates and shines to the right hand side of the mat, thus creating space for the right hand and arm to lift! Another variation is on the forearms so following through the same steps of shifting weight, take your time and love the fire and energy you build! 10 long breaths, or a 1 minute hold if you’re up for a challenge.
Benefits: Strengthens the core, lower back, obliques, shoulder girdle, thighs, wrists and hands. Great at building stability for spine and creating power and dedication.
