Focus on the Abdomen: Intention into Action (All Levels)

Our abdominal area is a deep and reliable source of will, intelligence, and our ability to take action. In this short practice, Shari Friedrichsen guides you through movements that target the muscles and organs of the belly, using systematic contraction and release to access the power and wisdom located in this part of the body. Learn the more subtle aspects of your core as you release tension and fear, and move through life with more confidence and intention.
