LOW PLANK POSE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Start in plank pose with your hands under the elbows and the elbows under the shoulders.
2. As you exhale, roll forward on your toes and bend your elbows until your arms form a 90 degree angle.
3. Stay in Chaturanga Dandasana for 15 to 30 seconds.
Keep your core engaged, your abs pulled in and maintain your elbows close to your torso. Pull your shoulders away from your ears, look forward and maintain your torso and legs in line and parallel to the floor. If you don’t have enough core strength, or if you feel tired, keep your core engaged, lower your knees to the floor and work on maintaining proper alignment.
