This summer I started training some of my clients in a swimming pool. My clients have enjoyed it and tell me it is more like play than exercise. One of my clients asked 3 of her friends if they wanted to be part of a small group training, so I train them together in one of my client's pool one morning a week.
Chaturanga Dandasana, or Plank pose, can be both physically and psychically challenging for the yoga practitioner as the entire weight of the body is balanced across the hands and the toes. It is important to practice this pose in alignment to avoid overstraining the wrists and elbows. Keeping the elbows over the hands at a ninety degree angle and the arms pulled in tightly to the body is correct. Our tendency is to muscle through this pose by only using the front side of the torso, which causes us to incorrectly splay the elbows out and away from the body.
