Begin this Dolphin Pose variation on your hands and knees, inhale to Plank Pose (Day 6) then exhale into Dolphin Plank Pose (Day 7). Gently firm your abdominal muscles and lift your hips toward the sky. Your shoulders and torso will naturally do the same, creating the shape of an "A". If your upper back begins to round bend your knees until your spine is straight. Resist the urge to walk your feet towards your hands, you want to keep extension throughout your whole body.
After you get situated in the pose, connect back with your breath and hold for 5 to 30 seconds or as long as feels comfortable to you.
Yoga is a personal practice so make it your own.
The most fundamental part of any yoga pose/sequence is your breath.
Try inhaling for 3 seconds and exhaling for 5,
always making the exhales longer than your inhales.
Breathing is the most IMPORTANT part of yoga, the poses(asanas)/sequences are just a bonus.
:: Your breath is what keeps you alive. ::
