According to Boston.com, "SUP Yoga adds a new, exciting twist to an age-old practice." In this physical and mental style of yoga, "you are constantly engaging your core, along with smaller subsets of muscles throughout your body" in order to stabilize yourself. So you can still practice your Ridiculous Body Awareness™ even off your Plank Yoga Mat.
We admit it, things can start to get a little too HOT in August, hence why we're offering up this COOLING posture, Legs Up the Wall, (Viparita Karani) as our #Yoga pose of the month!
#PLANKTIP: To get into this pose with ease, scoot one of your hipbones as close to the wall as possible, then lie down onto your back and simultaneously extend your legs up the wall. Connect your outer shoulders, connecting side ribs, middle back ribs, side waist and low back fully to your mat for optimal spinal alignment. Then, allow yourself to melt into your Plank Yoga Mat. Ahhh relaxation.
