Yoga wheel: kumbhakasana (plank pose)

Exercise of the week!Position yourself on the floor on hands and knees with wrists directly under shoulders, fingers facing forward. Place the yoga wheel on the floor behind your feet. Draw your lower belly in, then lift one leg at a time behind you, resting the top of your shins on the wheel. Once balanced, make sure your body is in a straight line with core tight. Be careful not to round your back or let your hips sink toward the floor.

Hold for 5 breaths.
