Four Limbed Staff Pose (Chaturanga Dandasana)

Strengthens the arms and wrists
Tones the abdomen

*Should not be practiced in case of carpel tunnel syndrome or pregnancy

From Plank pose, exhale and lower your body down until it's a few inches from the floor.  Keep the elbows tucked in and the shoulders broad.  The core should be engaged and thighs remain active.  As in plank pose, do not let the back sway and sink.

If this pose is too strong for you, keep the knees on the floor.

To release from this pose, gently lay your body on the mat.
