Maintaining a strong core has lots of benefits including improving your posture, supporting your lower back, helping your balance, and creating more space for your internal organs to do their special jobs.
This 10 minute yoga sequence stabilises and strengthens the core. Crescent pose with variations, side plank, yogi sit-ups and even some ropy poly will get your core fired up.
I like to think of the core as not only the abdominal muscles but also the whole centre line of the body - from inner ankles to inner knees & thighs, pelvic floor & lower belly, chest & crown of the head.
If you find yourself hunching over your computer, steering wheel or latte, here's a super quick way to better posture. It's really easy too! Sit up straight, breathe easy, and face the world with confidence.
