20 Min: Vinyasa Core Strength
This is a fairly fast-flowing Vinyasa yoga practice to cultivate core abdominal and whole-body strength; building healthy strong bones and muscles.
We begin standing in Tadasana (Mountain Pose) with the palms together and move through a few Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) variations with Leg Lunges and continue with Plank Pose and Forearm Plank Pose, Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) variation, Salabhasana (Locust Pose) followed by Tabletop to Ardha Navasana (Half Boat Pose) sequence and Purvottanasana (Intense / East Pose) to Pascimottanasana (Intense / West Pose) sequence.
From here we move into some Pelvic Rolls lying on the floor before a series of core strengthening / abdominal toning exercises and single leg raises.
The class winds down with some gentle back releasing, stretching out and softening all the toning work.
At the end of the practice, we lie in Savasana a few minutes to rest and quieten.
*Due to the fast pace, there is not a lot of detailed instruction so you may want to watch the class first before practicing.
Only do what feels right for you, modify and rest as needed.
