Why Love Your Core?

I’ve been asked these questions a lot recently, so I thought a little blog post might help summarize.

Why have you called these yoga workshops ‘love your core’? 

Well, it just happened that the first one fell on the 14th of February, but also, there is a strong element of loving and accepting ourselves.  It is possible that we are very disconnected from our true cores and we need to meet this area of our body with love.  These workshops are a welcome space for every BODY type, male or female, big or small, post natal or not.

Will I be able to do it?

Yes, absolutely, everyone has a core, but most of us are not accessing our deep core muscles properly.  Including me!  This can affect the function of our movement, sore backs, diastasis recti, hip pain, pelvic floor issues this inlcudes prolapse, even our shoulders, (yes our shoulders) can be affected by our connection to our core.

The workshop includes a more in-depth look at what the ‘core’ means (sorry it doesn’t mean 6pack abs) but the muscles that provide us with stability and mobility.  We carry out a few performance checks to see how our core is functioning.  And then move into a dynamic practice to engage the muscles of the core.

Book on the next one now.

Yoga to me is a practice that allows you to feel as though you have had a workout and a massage at the same time. It both strengthens and soothes the body. On a deeper level it is a practice that allows you to get to know yourself and your body intimately. It is a time you give yourself to nourish your body and mind. I have been practicing and studying yoga for seven years. It brings me great satisfaction to share my practice and knowledge with others, so they too can benefit from Yoga as I have. Through Yoga you can become stronger, more flexible, and balanced in body and mind. As a student with YogaCampus I am deepening my knowledge and understanding of Yoga and all it encompasses. Yoga has much to offer and is most beneficial when it is tailored to your specific needs. As a runner I use Yoga to bring balance back to my body and stretch into tight areas. As a mother I used Yoga throughout my pregnancy to be more comfortable and allow me to have a natural birth without pain relief. I used Yoga post-natal to bring strength back to my body as well as heal aches and pains from carrying a baby. As a partner and friend I use yoga to be more patient, compassionate and understanding to those around me. I look forward to working with you to discover how Yoga can benefit your life.
