Side Plank, Thank You Very Much

Vasisthasana – Side Plank

Let’s face it. Any arm balance, both hands or one-handed, can be stressful on the wrists. Before I learned how to mindfully (over time) build strength in my tender musician’s wrists, I omitted many poses for the sake of my hands.

I loved Vasisthasana, and did not want to miss out. So I began to take the forearm side plank variation. Then I began to hoist myself back into a plank, and essentially gained strength and lightness in both the side plank and plank. The transition became lifted and effortless.

The short video clip shows the transitions from Downward Facing Dog – Plank – Side Plank with Forearm Variation – Plank – Downward Facing Dog
