Side Plank is a basic arm balancing pose used in many vinyasa sequences.  Side Plank will build strength in your arms and shoulders while also challenging your balance.

Modifications:  If you are still working on your balance or strength, try placing your top leg in front of you like a kickstand or behind you.

For an extra challenge you can gaze up towards your extended arm or try lifting your top leg toward the sky (keeping in line with your bottom leg)
