A Plank-less Sun Salutation (save your wrists)

There are many of you that cannot and will not be able to include plank in your practice. It hurts. It hurts your wrists, your elbows, your shoulders. You shake, you’re uncomfortable and it just doesn’t make for an enjoyable experience. So why push for something if it is causing ACTUAL pain?

That being said, if you want to get better at holding plank, you have to persevere beyond the shakes and discomfort. 

Actual pain is something that you cannot get through.

We use the mind to go beyond the limitations of the body.
