Core Strength & the Lower Body
Core Strength & the Upper Body
Understanding & Developing a Resilient Core for vitality and postural strength What is the "core"? What structures, muscles, bones... are involved? How can we build a supple yet resilient "core" to counter the effects of our sedentary culture on our overall posture and vitality.
The first workshop, Core Strength & the Lower Body, addresses issues related to the lower body and how a targeted yoga practice can readjust, realign and strengthen your abdomen, lower back and legs.
The second workshop, Core Strength & the Upper Body, deals with the upper body and its issues such as collapsed chest, rounded shoulders and how they relate to the core, hip flexors and abdominals. We show adjustments, carefully selected stretches and yoga postures to realign the upper body and help develop a stable and resilient core.
