Strong Core

40 min - Practice


Nathan guides us in a challenging core-focused practice to build strength, heat, and energy. We begin with Kapalabhati (Skull-shining breath) before moving through Surya Namaskars (Sun Salutations) to build heat in the body. We then explore twists, and standing balancing and arm balancing postures. You will feel challenged and energized.

So this was a challenge for me...abdominals always are. But I just listened to your soothing voice and kind of zoned out, and made my way carefully through the hard work and towards the restorative poses. Feeling stronger in body and spirit 💥
Jenny, I have to admit that the abdominal work is tough for me too. Don't let my soothing voice fool you in the video :D, I am definitely winded. Thank you for sharing your experience. Always good to hear from you.

Your voice is not only soothing, as Jenny points out, but also very encouraging! And no sense of "judgement". Very sweet core practice. Thank you!

Wonderful! I keep thinking of myself as a "beginner", but Nathan is teaching me that I'm evolving. So happy that I can keep up with the pace and am "feeling" each pose the way it's intended. Wonderful instruction, Nathan, I am so grateful for your teaching method. 
Awesome! Thanks Lorrie
