Tuesday Tip: Low Plank
Low plank (or Chaturanga Dandasana) is in almost all of our classes and is a classic transition from high plank to upward facing dog. Here are some tips to get you to (and through) low plank:
1. From high plank, shift forward slightly so that you are on your toes (visualize your heels inline with your toes)
2. Keeping your core engaged and with control, slowly lower to a hover over you mat
3. Your arms should be at a 90 degree angle with your triceps/biceps parallel to the floor
4. As with high plank, you should be able to draw a straight line from your heels to the crown of your head, being mindful not to let your hips hike up or sag down.
You can modify this pose by lowering your knees down to the ground from high plank and then following the steps above!
