The Endothermic vs. Exothermic Core

Come ignite yourself from the inside out! This core flowshop will give you a deeper understanding of your "core team" and how to get them off the bench and in the game during your yoga practice. Expect to play with the fire of your navel centre through various fundamental pranayama and asana techniques, including the sometimes elusive belly bandhas. And of course, that means right side up AND upside down! 

The physical core system consists of our abdominals, lower back, and pelvis. This core system encapsulates our solar plexus where metabolism, digestion, growth, and healing are all ignited. By increasing strength and flexibility of the core on the physical level, we give our body & skeleton good support, our circulation becomes better, and our nervous system more relaxed. 

 If you want to learn more about your deep core, how to use it, and how to channel its full potential - this flowshop is for you! Break free of the "flat stomach" obsession and discover your true strength deep within. Come explore both the endothermic and exothermic aspects of the core of your being, to radiate in every aspect of your life and yoga practice from a place of inner power and balance.
