Refine and Align: Side Plank

Intermediate III

In this targeted vinyasa flow sequence, Andrea guides you to power up your shoulder girdle, wrists, hands and core to build a more functional and sustainable side plank (vasithasana).

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 7 of the Daily Dose 30-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge.

My first Andrea class and definitely not my last! She really clicked as a teacher, I love her style. Look forward to her other classes.

This was my first class with Andrea - enjoyed it. My balance isn't the best, so I lose it a bit in tree and flying pigeon, but practice makes us stronger, and with strength comes balance. Thank you.

Great energy and looove breaking poses down! Was a bit disappointed that we didn't do a straightforward side plank, though. It was a great workout, but I felt like I was missing yoga philosophy behind the physical work. I think frequent countdowns do that for me because they remind me of western workout styles ... but that may just be a personal thing.

Thank you Andrea! I made a mental note to do more of your classes after really enjoying them in the Inner Teacher challenge. This one is great, too. Nice pacing and I enjoy the change from my usual fast-paced vinyasa classes. I really hurt my shoulder in side plank around 18 months ago (attempted one while still recovering from a broken collarbone on the same side was a really, really bad move!) so I still feel vaguely anxious in the pose and its variations but this felt comfortable, I'll be coming back to it!

I love Andrea's classes. I didn't have as much time as I'd like to have this morning, but Andrea always makes it challenging (with lots of options). Thank you for this wonderful class and all the positivity that you radiate, Andrea. One request for future classes is to provide more options for those of us who struggle with flexibilty. My hands can't go under my feet without bending my knees a lot.

This class was quite challenging yet felt gentle and patient. Due to an old injury, my left wrist has a hard time sustaining me in side plank. The exercises and directions on how to place my arm and hand helped with this tremendously. I also liked being given options throughout. Thank you Andrea. I look forward to more of your classes.

Fantastic, really warmed me up on a cold January day! Will be looking out for more Andrea classes :-)

I enjoyed Andrea's poses and instructions, especially the flashing hands and wrists under pelvis to release wrist tensions. I will be doing for more Andrea classes if they are available. Thank you.

LOVED this class! Was a little bit of a work out but left me relaxed and peaceful at the end.

OH! This was surprising and challenging and so well done. I will look for Andrea in the future and return to this class again and again.
Thank you so much.

This was my first class with Andrea and I really enjoyed it. Her calming voice , infused with laughs at just the right moments, was delightful. I appreciated her description of our arms as tent poles. It really helped me to put the pose into perspective. I look forward to more classes with Andrea.

This was my first class with Andrea - and I loved it! Clear, calm voice with great tips. Really liked the three directed breaths at shivasana at the end. Hope to see many more classes by you, Andrea!

I appreciated the clear, specific instructions for finger clawing and arm rotating to power up the shoulder. Shoulder strength and stability have always been a struggle in side plank pose. The wrist relief was so helpful, too, as well as the acknowledgement of the difficulty of the poses. Andrea is very real and down-to-earth; she is a new instructor for me. The countdowns were a bit distracting, though I understand the intention to let us know how much longer we are in a particular pose. I will do this class again and keep trying the variations of side plank!
