FROM THE MAT: Brian Scott Gross

“What a year! Good or bad, 2020 showed me what I’m made of… and plank pose is a physical manifestation of my constant negotiation with movement and stillness. Even when it looks like I’m holding still in plank, I’m still breathing and making the smallest shifts in muscle and joint engagement. I learn something new every time I do this pose. It’s the best way for me to gauge what’s happening in my body and my breath from moment to moment. Sometimes it’s easier to hold than others, but I embrace the experience every time because it teaches me that no matter what, I can figure it out.”
