Beyond the Sixpack: Finding and Using your Deep Core

Beyond the Sixpack_slider

We all need upper body strength for everyday activities like picking up the kids, carrying the groceries, moving furniture, or reaching for that item on the top shelf. If you want to build upper body strength, strong deep-abdominal muscles are the ticket.This workshop will offer tips and tricks to move beyond our ‘sixpack abs’ in order to access the incredibly strong layers of our deep core muscles while building upper body strength along the way.

This upbeat, hands-on class will use physical therapy and breath work to unlock the healing potential of the core in classical yoga postures. We will move, breathe and sweat as we fire up the abdomen and flow into strength building asanas. We will also use this core work to stabilize the spine and SI joints in backbends and twists.

This course is suitable for all levels. Modifications and variations will be given along the way
