What it works: back, abs, sides of the torso, and arms
- Begin in Downward Facing Dog. Step both feet together so your big toes are touching. Move your right hand over to the left so it's at the top center of your mat.
- Roll over to your right side and plant your right heel down, balancing on the outside edge of your right flexed foot. Reach your left arm straight above you or extend it over your ear.
- Stay here in Side Plank for five deep breaths, trying to keep your core strong and the pose steady. Repeat this pose on the left side.
