Side Plank Pose (Vasisthasana)

Side Plank Pose, also known as Vasisthasana, is a powerful wrist and arm strengthening pose. In this pose, you will hold your body on your side in a straight position, supported only by one arm and one side of your foot. The pose can be included in core exercise routines, Pilates, and yoga practice. This pose helps you with good posture and builds a strong core and better balance.
