Spring Training #19

Spring is here! Let’s dust off winter with some heart-pumping spring training.  During the month of April, Prana Fitness is going to post daily one workout move or yoga pose that you can do at home, at a park, or anywhere.

April 19th: Tabletop Obliques

#19

While on hands and knees, stack shoulders above wrists and knees under hips.  Broaden out finger span with pointer finger forward.  Rotate triceps towards knees so soft parts of elbows are facing the thumbs.  Push up through the back of the heart between the shoulder blades.  Squeeze tummy up into spine.  Extend neck to gaze just in front of finger tips.  Press down into ground especially on the thumb, forefinger, and top corners of palm (see image below on How to Avoid Wrist Pain in Yoga).  Extend opposite (left) arm and opposite (right) leg.  Keeping thigh, shin, upper arm, and forearm parallel to the ground, bend your right knee and left arm towards the middle of your body.  Then extend out long and straight again. Try to keep torso as parallel to the ground as possible.  Repeat several times. Then change to do the other side.
