Day 1 of November’s #SizeDoesntMatter yoga challenge w/ me & @yoga_davina is Forearm Plank Pose (Dolphin Plank Pose). This pose is extremely challenging for me but it’s also a huge part of my #inversion progress- a solid core is really the only way to invert without a wall.

I usually hold this pose 30-90 seconds, depending upon my mood. It burns like all hell, but the burn is SO worth it.


I remember hearing @kathryn_budig ask, during a particularly strenuous hold in this pose: “Do you ever hear someone say ‘shift into plank pose’ and it actually makes you really happy?” Recently, I’ve found myself getting happy when I hear it. Not because it’s fun- anyone whose held a long #plankpose can tell you that it’s usually not all that fun- but because it has taught me so much about total body engagement. In order to stay afloat in this pose, it is necessary to be aware and engaged in every part of your body. Frequently, we are extremely disconnected and disengaged with our bodies. That’s essentially not an option when it comes to forearm plank. Basically, I’m grateful for the challenge, and thankful for the constant reminder to stay engaged. At all times. On and off the mat.

I am frequently asked how to get in and out of Natarajasana (King Dancer Pose) with a mermaid bind- it’s actually very simple. Video is sped up 2x- song is Kendrick Lamar “Sing About Me, I’m Dying Of Thirst”.
