Introducing a whole month of 'Core Strength' this April 2019 every Tuesday and Thursday (8am) with Neha Duseja, a senior Yogi (https://www.instagram.com/nehadusejayoga/) who visits us again from Dubai. Neha is absolutely terrific and we strongly recommend her workshops.
BENEFITS OF THE 4 WEEK PROGRAM
- More core strength and stability - More core engagement - Better balance and posture - Lightness in asana practice - More success in arm balances and inversions
Core stability and strength are essential for a healthy body. Better posture, better balance and preventing injury and back pain, all begin with a strong core. Fun, strong, sweaty practices and understanding complete core engagement to create powerful yoga postures are just some of the things you should expect twice a week! Let's get strong, let's get stable, let's grow full of confidence from the inside out!
Each week, we will do two practices under one theme. While the topic may be the same the sequences will differ based on the physical goal
📆 Week 1 - CORE STRENGTH AND STANDING BALANCES - Theory of equal and opposites
- Principle of adduction (Unlocking inner thigh strength)
- Weight distribution in the feet and channeling strength - Balancing on two and then one leg
📆 Week 2 - ALL ABOUT THE OBLIQUES - Understanding the difference between the internal and external obliques
- Core strength versus core stability - Planks and Twists - Lower back and shoulder health
📆 Week 3 - CORE STRENGTH AND ARM BALANCES - The relationship of the breath and core to create lightness - The relationship of the core and lower body to create flight - The power of pushing the floor away - Different arm balance shapes need different recruitment and different core strengths
📆 Week 4 - CORE STRENGTH AND INVERSIONS - The relationship between the core and lower body - Core stability - isolation work specifically for inversions - Working with the core upside down - Handstands, headstands, forearm stands
