Yoga: Core Strengtheners I

Intermediate The power to crush non-Sufferlandrians comes not just from your legs, but from your core. When your core is strong and stable, you can generate more power, more efficiently. You’ll also suffer less back pain. With those goals in mind, this sequence strengthens the abs, obliques and lower back.

We finish with a short body scan meditation to calm your mind and release tension throughout the body. Modification: If you’re unable to sit back on your heels in Child’s pose, you can put a couple of cushions or a pillow between your calves and the backs of your thighs.
