Is this follow up pose supposed to be Salabhasana or Gomukasana?


Great pose to prepare for Chaturanga Dandasana!


I strongly believe that I would not let my student with any neck/shoulder injury to do this.They are other incredible core strenghteners they could engage in without putting pressure on their already injured areas.


good pose. really strengthened my core. thumbs up!


What type of yoga is this pose?


not a good asana for those with cervical nerve issues!

Peter Andrews

I have found that this pose has significantly reduced my sciatica pain. I believe it is due to its strengthening of my core. It is amazing -- the small of my back gets actually hot after a minute.


i find this pose very relaxing. it gives you a chance to get in touch with your inner self...i love this one.


This hurts but I'm training for trak so its all good!


if it hurts to do the pose, modify by releasing one knee to the floor. don't create pain, create arm strength in Plank if that is easier for you. work up to the Dolphin Plank when ready
