Core strength is essential to holding you steady in your yoga practice, keeping you upright in your standing poses, and lends the strength needed to maintain balance. Just as a solid core creates strength in the physical body, the principles of building core strength on the mat can also be applied to life. It is about being strong and capable in the world, so that you are empowered to do what you are here to do.
This workshop is designed to have you look at your yoga practice in a new way-starting from the core. Our focus will be on strengthening the back, thighs and abs.
This workshop will include:
• an experiential review of the anatomy of the “core” (including abdominal and back muscles)
• practice, theory and discussion of certain core stabilization/strengthening techniques as they relate to specific postures
• a flow of yoga postures led to incorporate the principles presented in the workshop
Participants should have some familiarity with yoga postures. Workshop is suitable for both beginning and experienced yoga enthusiasts.
