First, thanks for the y'alls. Represent. I love the fire from the arches, the lift of the hips, the arms going along for the ride. So many great cues for a pose that can make you sorry the next day or longer if done incorrectly. Love it.
Plank has defeated me in the past, but now that I better understand it, I think I will be able to do it well. Thanks!
Thank you - love the permission to keep my hips high. Definitely guilty of sagging in the past!
Thank you8, Kate. My best friend is "down dog". I find relief in moving from DG to plank, but feel the discomforts you had pointed out. Your presentation makes me realize that proper form is very important. I also like your reference to anatomy, which helps me connect to my body . thank you.
So glad it helped, Laurie. I struggle with this pose (in a good way) on a weekly basis. It always challenges me - which I actually love. It's wonderful to think of the deep anatomy that this pose strengthens. I always remind myself when I am in this pose that I am wearing a "muscular suit" and I can utilize the whole suit for the pose - not just the upper body. Glad to hear you are on this learning journey with me. My love abounds....
Love this, Kate! Echoing all of the above comments. Thank you so much! I really enjoy your teaching. Keep being YOU!
