Core Strength: Building Stability & Integration (All Levels)

Sandra Anderson

Core strength is a function of physical stability, energetic integration, and conscious awareness. The physical and physiological balance that results from core strength maximizes efficient functioning, and supports emotional resiliency. With mental and physical equilibrium, we gain the capacity to correct deeply ingrained but counterproductive tension patterns in the body and in the mind. This sequence is a tune-up you can practice on a regular basis. You may also be inspired to include components of it in other asana sequences.
