Understanding your Core in Yoga with Patricia Videgain 
with Patricia Videgain
Thursdays at 3:30 pm
Zoom &  In-person

Sucking your stomach in and tightening your abdominal muscles is not the way to develop a strong core.

When you tense up your core muscles, you actually diminish your strength and hinder function by constricting your ribs, diaphragm, and the internal organs that lie under your abdominal muscles.

To properly strengthen your core boils down to one goal: ensuring your skeletal system is stable enough to maintain its integrity as you do complex, involved movements…while your breathing stays consistent.

Your body has to be synchronized and fluid. It’s not about sucking your belly in, which actually makes it harder to move and breathe.

Your core involves your pelvic floor, your deep abdominal muscles, transverse abdominis, deep lower back muscles, and diaphragm.

All together with the spine, these components create a container for your abdominals and organs, and that container likes to move and breathe, not be sucked in.

The whole goal with strengthening your core is to create a dynamically stable spine that allows you to move safely and efficiently!
