Plank Pose Variations

Last month we reviewed working in a basic plank pose with Yoga and Pilates Instructor, Brooke Oberg.

We’ve got that video posted here if you’d like a refresher!  If you only have a few minutes in your day to get some strength building in, try plank! If it’s too difficult to start on your toes and hands, try dropping to your knees for your first few times and gradually build up to working in the full-pose.

Some of the common discomforts found in working in plank pose are too much pressure on the wrists/hands or in the shoulder and neck. Here are a few variations to help ease that discomfort.

Come see Brooke in person at our Flow studio:
Mondays 10:45am Centered Core Yoga
Wednesdays 8:30am Pilates
Tuesday 11:00am Pilates
Thursday 5:30pm Barre
