What is Core Strength?


This spring and summer we are going to focus on core strengthening at the the studio. Joie is teaching a ‘Core Challenge’ Yoga.core.posesclass @ 11-noon, 5 Saturdays in a row, starting on April 18. Sunday mornings, starting in May, we will be offering a new class focusing on core; details to come. In preparation for the challenge, we will blog on what core strength is all about. The following is an excellent article written by the Canyon Ranch Reviewer:

“Many of us equate core strength with a flat belly or six-pack abs. And while those may be motivating goals to you, there are so many more benefits that come from improving core strength than how your midsection looks, including improved posture, better balance, reduced back pain and easier breathing.

Where is your core, exactly? If you pointed to somewhere around your navel, you’re partially right. Many people think the core consists only of the abdominals, but the core also includes your pelvic muscles, mid and lower back muscles, and even your hip muscles. All of these muscles work together to support your spine and skull.” ~Richard Butler, M.S., U.S.P.T.A.
