I’m obsessed with core strength. My practice focuses on mainly on postures that develop core strength, and they keep constant pain at bay. The core, what the call the layers of muscles and connective tissue of the torso (abdominals, sides, back and even down into the hips), is a complex and intricate system, so I welcome any opportunity to learn more about it.
This is why I’m excited about The Core of the Matter: Essentials of Core Strengthening for Yoga Practitioners, Judith Hanson Lasater’s upcoming course with IAYB sponsor Yoga U Online. As the course description says:
In this 2-part online course, yoga teacher, physical therapist, and author Judith Hanson Lasater shows how to integrate a core routine as part of a yoga practice to make core work fun and rewarding. Judith will present an innovative and easy-to-follow program of asanas variations and breathing practices to integrate in your yoga practice, and also show simple activities you can incorporate throughout your daily activities to strengthen the core.
All the action goes down on Tuesday, October 21 and Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 5:30pm Pacific / 8:30pm Eastern.
IAYB is delighted to offer two spots in the course to two lucky readers! All you have to is leave a comment below telling us (briefly) about your relationship with your physical core. Enter before 8pm EST, Monday, October 20, 2014. Two names will be drawn at random and notified by email.
