Dolphin Plank is a great core, shoulder and upper back strengthener, but it also opens the shoulders and upper back, so it's a great pose for people who carry tension in those areas. You might want a strap and a block!
Ready to work it?
Here are some classes featuring Dolphin Plank Pose.
This intense ab sequence includes 1 minute of each core-target with no breaks! Buckle up because it's a fiery but fun ride :) Perfect for when you're short on time but want something you're going to remember the next day. You're welcome!
If you're looking for a get-up-and-go advanced, energizing practice where you can hunker down and focus, look no further! This is a shoulder-opening, core-strengthening flow that targets forearm stand and headstand and transitions between headstand and forearm stand. You will breathe, move, sweat, strengthen and probably learn something new all in 21 minutes! And you'll have fun! Low ponytails for those of you with long hair are recommended :)
This is a high-energy core-blasting flow that incorporates core work on our backs, but also from dolphin plank and side plank. There's also time in dolphin pose with forearm stand prep (you can move into forearm stand if you wish, yogis!) but our focus is the core for sure! Have two blocks handy so I can torture you a little extra! You're welcome! (I promise we are going to laugh and have fun, don't worry! Laughing is the best core work!)
Looking to explore forearm stand? Look no further! Grab two blocks and join Angela for a very smart sequence that will get you prepped for forearm plank, dolphin pose, forearm stand and maybe even forearm stand with stag legs! Core strength on point and all kinds of fun along the way.
This practice is about your "back body" which simply means we'll be targeting your shoulders, upper back, glutes and hamstrings, but we'll also be balancing things out by opening across the chest, and strengthening the core and quadriceps. We'll be working toward dolphin pose and dolphin plank pose. Two blocks and a strap will be helpful as we build strength and breathe together!
Feeling like your shoulders could use a little love? This practice starts with a slow, mindful exploration of your shoulder mobility, and moves into a handful of more challenging movements to help you build strength... enjoy!
Want to understand how to approach your backbends safely? So much of it has to do with understanding the anatomy involved and building your foundation! Take a little trip opening the front side of your body deeply, but also strengthening your core and giving your back body lots of love so you are centered! And perhaps we'll end up in a forearm stand or scorpion forearm stand together! A block and a strap will be helpful but not essential!
Move with a sense of intention in this strong flow. Fun transitions with a focus on planks and chaturanga varaiations. Hip-opening standing poses along with some challenging balances are explored! Optional inversions throughout the practice. Enjoy!
