9 Moves 20-Minute For Upper Body Yoga For Beginners
2. High Plank
- From Downward Facing Dog, shift your weight forward until your shoulders are stacked directly above your wrists. Keep your arms straight.
- Press your hands firmly into the mat and set your gaze on the floor between your hands.
- Try to resist sinking your tailbone into the floor by drawing the shoulders down your back and pushing them away from your ears.
- Come up onto the balls of your feet.
You are in proper alignment when you shift back and forth between plank and Downward Facing Dog, so you don’t have to move your arms or legs. Come down to your knees as a modification.
