Common Mistakes In Side Plank

October 2, 2016

Today we're talking side plank. This is such a great pose for building core strength and can be a really fun pose to transition out of. One of my favorite transitions is to throw this in the middle of a vinyasa and then gently lift the top leg, bring the bottom foot fully to the ground, pull the top knee in to the chest as I begin to rotate and quietly step the foot to the front of the mat. Major core work! 

 

The most common mistake I see with side plank when I'm teaching is "resting" the weight in the wrist while letting the hips wilt toward the mat. Instead, visualize a suction happening in the middle of the bottom hand palm. This visualization will help to create a lifting sensation, creating a long line of energy through both hands and will help to keep the hips lifted.
