Our Essential Core

There are many misconceptions about our core, what it is and what is required for physical health, stability and strength. Babies perform moves that suggest core strength without having yet developed any strength! In order to have the stability that prevents injury and enables us to build strength, we need a responsive core that enables us to adapt to the ever-changing environment of the various movements we continuously perform.

– This work builds a solid foundation for beginners, is therapeutic for those with injuries and is essential for those wanting to advance their practice to more challenging and complex asana.

– Rediscover what is needed to have the stable, responsive core you had as an infant!

– Understand the important differences between your intrinsic and external core.

– Discover the engine that drives your intrinsic core and the secret to stability and strength.

– Lean specific exercises that both diagnose and revitalise both your inner and outer core.

– Explore the extrinsic core and how we can most effectively build strength where it matters most.

– Practice moving from your core and integrating your limbs from this centre in your yoga practice.
