6 PLANK POSE VARIATION
Begin in Downward-Facing Dog, finding length in your spine. Hold for 5 breaths, then roll forward to Plank Pose. Make sure your shoulders are stacked over your wrists, heels over toes. Straighten your arms and energetically draw your wrists toward your toes, engaging your core. Hold this pose for 5–10 breaths. Then lower one arm down, and then the other, into Forearm Plank (pictured). Isometrically move your forearms closer together. Stay here for 5 breaths. Then, press into one hand, then the other, coming back to Plank Pose. Lift back to Down Dog. Repeat 6 times, alternating which hand initiates the lift.
