Yoga CORE 90 Day Challenge- 6 Classes and Work At Home Program
In the West we generally judge the health of an individual on their overall size and shape. Unfortunately this is not a true evaluation of a healthy body. Large and small people have pain in their lower back, SI, knees, shoulders and hips. We struggle with tension in our upper backs, stress and anxiety. Arches and feet are falling. Childbirth can leave the muscles of the pelvic area stretched and weak. Strong superficial muscles can hide all of this on the outside but do nothing to bring the body ease. Regardless of your overall health or fitness, this 90-day Yoga CORE challenge is about using the strength of inner core (skeletal) muscles of the abdomen and legs to build true strength, balance and harmony in the lower body. Any instability in these muscles create instability, discomfort and even pain in the lower and upper body, pain in joints and muscles and even sexual and elimination dysfunction.
Specifically the Yoga 12 Week CORE challenge will include:
- Take a pre-class survey and a post class assessment to gage real results in your body
- Foundational yoga concepts of breathe, body and mind all working in conjunction to build a healthier body with balance, strength, flexibility and relaxation.
- Identify, learn how to connect to and strengthen the inner core muscles of the abdomen (diaphragm, pelvic floor, inner obliques and multifidus) and legs
- Weekly progressive class asana (postures) to bring initial concepts into everyday movement
- A daily commitment to 15-20 minutes at home to work the program and to let the results develop
“After a frustrating attempt at doing yoga by watching videos, I took a “core yoga” class from Christa and learned the proper techniques for breathing and body alignment. After just a few sessions, I was surprised to find myself running much faster with less effort, and experiencing absolutely no pain. I would highly recommend…”– Harold
Class schedule: Mondays 6:30-8:00 pm CST- Backus Room 303 April 13th; April 27th; May 11th; May 25th; June 8th and June 22nd
