VIDEO: YOGA FOR CORE STRENGTH
Yoga for Core Strength. Get ready to get strong! Try out this video for my top three favourite poses to strengthen the core.
Working on your core helps improve nearly everything – your balance, your posture and your stability, just to name a few!
Yoga is amazing in so many ways, including the way it makes you feel STRONG. Holding plank pose – you feel your muscles working (ok, sometimes burning!) and often you feel like just getting out of the pose.
But if you stay, that’s where the real magic of yoga starts to come into play.
When you feel like just giving up, tell yourself you’ll hold on for one more breath (but if you’re in pain, you should always stop). And then perhaps, you can hold it for another breath. And another.
In this way, yoga teaches us to draw on our inner reserves. To stay when things may start to feel uncomfortable and face that challenge head on. And by doing that, you get stronger… not just physically stronger, but mentally too.
When we learn to do this on the yoga mat, we start to do this off the mat too. You’ll find yourself facing sticky or uncomfortable situations head on. Turning to your breath and dealing with whatever is in front of you.
And being strong is where it’s at.
Strong on the inside and out. Standing firmly on your own two feet, claiming your power and tackling whatever presents itself to you with ease and with confidence.
Now I’d love to hear from you – what are your favourite poses to feel strong and unstoppable?
