Mommy and Me Yoga

Plank to Down Dog
Works Your: Core (Abs), Butt, Back

Start on all fours with hands directly under shoulders and your knees under hips
(to make it a little easier you can get down on your elbows. See final photo.)

Plank: keep your core and legs rigid. No sagging or ghetto booty. Keep shoulders from the ears.

Press shoulders away from ears, keep feet hip width apart, with knees slightly bent

Pull belly button into your stomach (to engage your core)

Hold for 3 breaths

Slowly lower your body back to plank (keeping it stiff)

If this is too difficult. Take the downward dog out of your routine and just go from lying on your stomach with your elbows flat on the ground and then up to the plank (on elbows).
