4. Plank with Knee to Chin
Come forward to Plank and, keeping your shoulders stacked over your wrists, bring your right knee toward your chin. Press the left heel back, lifting the top of the left thigh as you release your tailbone toward your heels. Notice the dual action: Your lower belly engages, and your back rounds as you extend your breastbone forward. Do each side for 5 breaths. Return to Downward Dog.
