side plank // vasisthasana
Side Plank pose, or Vasisthasana, is a pose of balance and extension. Starting in a high plank, step slightly to your left, then shift your weight into your right hand and foot. Roll to the razor's edge of the right foot as you open your chest and lift your left arm. Create length from your grounded right hand to the tips of your left fingers, and find extension from your flexed feet through the crown of your head. Repeat on the other side to balance out benefits of the pose.
