After a week of daily core work, this sphinx pose is a well deserved counter stretch for the abdominals. Day 8 of #mermaidyogis is a gentle heart opener that can be held for about a minute, breathing deeply the entire time.
From high plank, lower all the way down to the floor.
Bring elbows under shoulders and spread fingers wide, forearms resting on the earth.
Inhale, draw heart forward and shoulders back, keeping neck long and neutral.
