Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic practice which focuses on accessing and activating the core during yoga poses.
It goes beyond the core in a purely physical sense by also working on the energetic core of the pose.
Origin and Practice
Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga was developed by teacher Sadie Nardini. Rather than being a style in itself it is more of a different focus or perspective. Core Strength Vinyasa yoga concentrates not just on abdominal work but on the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic “core” of yoga poses.
Core Vinyasa Yoga is made up of Core Principles and Core Practices. Specific poses and sequences are designed to help students access and understand their core which improves alignment and stability as well as connecting the mind and body. Classes include pranayama techniques along with asana practice.
Classes are dynamic and bring benefits of stronger and more flexible bodies as well as helping with weight loss. They also bring benefits of increased focus, confidence and self-awareness.
