Core stability is a key ingredient to a healthy asana practice. But what is the Core and how do we strengthen it? Join internationally acclaimed Natasha Rizopoulos for this workshop that will help you illuminate and activate this muscle group which is so important in our Yoga practice.
We’ll begin with a review of the key muscles that create steadiness at the center. Then we’ll put theory into practice in a sequence that will bring intelligence and tone to the muscles that support your torso and pelvis. We’ll examine poses and transitions that you can incorporate into your regular practice and explore how transformative this work can be, in terms of asana, posture and sense of Self.
As a former ballet dancer, Natasha knew she had come home when she discovered Yoga in her 20s. That moment of recognition and delight continues to inspire her teaching to this day. Now a Senior Teacher with YogaWorks and Down Under Yoga, and a writer, teacher, and DVD instructor for Yoga Journal, Natasha is known world-wide for her ability to communicate the essence of sophisticated postures and ideas in ways that have a transformative effect upon one’s understanding of Yoga.
