Core Strength Yoga Workshop

Core Yoga - Leyton Yoga: Feb 28th, 2-4.30pm (£22)

SophiaPymCoreYogaWorkshop


This Pilates influenced core workshop will be dynamic and a tough asana practice. Activating your core will help make your yoga practice more fluid and keep your back healthy and happy. Sometimes, the missing link in smooth transitions, balancing poses and inversions is a strong core. Training your core muscles is much more than just getting a “flat tummy”, it’s about creating endurance and stability throughout the whole body, enabling freedom of movement and supporting your back, freeing you from back pain.
