Hi, I'm Michelle with Pilates Studio City. I'm here to do a workout plan for Pilates and yoga. I've already finished the Pilates section. Now, we're on to yoga. The workout plan I'm going to do now is going to be a Side Plank coming into a push-up, giving me a full push-up, coming back into Side Plank on the other side. So, let's get started. I'm going to start with your modified version first. So, my left hand is going to go on the ground. Make sure you position your shoulder right over your wrist. Extend your right leg out, flex that right foot. Right foot is parallel to the edge of the mat. I want you to slowly come up, push your hips forward. So, make sure your hip is in line with your shoulder. Extend this right arm up into the air. This is your modified Side Plank. Work your obliques, lift up in your mid section on your left side. To come into a Full Plank, extend that left leg out, stack your right foot on top of your left foot and lift up. We're in a Full Side Plank. We're working your obliques. Very important to have your left shoulder over your left wrist. Push your hips forward, belly button pulled in, hold on. We're in Side Plank. Slowly bring your right hand down, come into a Plank, belly button pulled in, lower down. Hold it, push back up, nice and then we would come into Side Plank on our right side.
