Side plank / Vasisthasana by Yogahaven

This pose if great for strengthening the obliques and shoulders. From a high plank, keep the shoulders over the wrists, and pivot onto the right hand and the outer edge of the right foot, stacking the feet. Flex the feet, and reach the left arm up to the sky, looking up towards the hand. Lift the hips and waist high away from the ground, keeping the left hip stacked on top of the right. To soften the pose, drop the right knee and shin to the mat and keep lifting the hips high. Hold for five breaths, and repeat on the left side.
