Side Plank Pose (Vasisthasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Side Plank Pose

Side Plank Pose is a beginner arm balance that makes the arms and wrist stronger. While still a beginner pose, many first time Yogi’s will find the full version of Side Plank Pose to be a challenge at first. Side Plank Pose also brings strength to the belly, stretches the legs and helps to improve overall balance.Yogi’s with serious elbow, wrist or shoulder pain should not do this pose.

To do Side Plank Pose, begin in the Downward Facing Dog pose and shift onto the outside edge of the right foot stacking the left foot on top of the right while moving the left hand to the left hip and push through the right hand to balance, using the right hand and foot for support. For a more advanced pose lift the left hand and leg to the sky. Hold for a few breaths and return to Downward Facing Dog. Repeat on the other side for balance.
