It was an excellent exercise for toning your core, but also for self confidence and owning who you are. It's all about self power and self worth. So if you are feeling more confident and "worthy" today, practice some more at home.
If you missed class and want to give it a try, put a folded up towel off the end of your mat (or 2 paper plates/furniture sliders if you are on carpet). Stand on the towel/paper plates and do a Forward Fold placing your hands down on your mat. Using your core, slide your feet out to Downward Dog. Slide them back in to a Forward Fold. If that was easy, next time slide your feet out to Plank. ;). Don't understand? Come ask me in class. I can walk you through it.
