I for "Inclined Plank pose" (Purvottanasana)

This blog post is written as part of A to Z Challenge. This involves the challenge of a blog post on a topic starting with an alphabet on each day through the entire month of April excluding Sundays starting from A to Z. My simple posts will be themed after Yoga postures with my own creations as images.

Purvottanasana (Inclined Upward Plank pose) strengthens the triceps, wrists, back, and legs while stretching the shoulders, chest, and front ankles. It helps to free the mind to awaken thinking on new possibilities.

Read my earlier post on H for Halasana.

Disclaimer: Yoga creates simple to complex impacts on the physical body. Make sure you consult your doctor and start the practice with a trained teacher.

  7. Planks and penguins! What a great combination. I was just with my personal trainer today and came away determining that I am going to do much more planking. I look forward to learning about all the different types of planks. I'm really enjoying your AtoZ posts.
