Yoga for Strength: Dolphin / Forearm Plank


Begin the exercise from dolphin pose. Inhale
and reach the right leg high behind you, exhale step it back, left foot meets it, forearm
plank. Walk the feet back in toward you. Inhale, left leg high, exhale lower it down, right
foot meets it, forearm plank.Walk the feet back in.Take 3-5 repetitions on each side,
moving with your breath and controlling the movement throughout. Resist the urge to swing
or drop the leg down to the ground. Keep hugging the low belly in, drawing the
navel back toward the spine to engage the abdominal muscles and keep tension out of
the low back. As always, move with your breath. Exhale and bring the knees down to the mat,
and the arms alongside the body to rest in child’s pose.
