As a gymnast, you are whipped into shape. Complaints or tears were not tolerated. Don’t get me wrong, if I could do it all over again I would. Being a gymnast truly shaped me into who I am today. Fun yet serious, relaxed yet dedicated, committed and very self-disciplined. The tremendous flexibility, which I miss so much, was not only a very important component of being a successful gymnast, but strength was huge too. We spent hours on conditioning and at the time I completely took my strength for granted. Having to even think about beating my own personal record, 72 push-ups in a minute, makes me just laugh. Yeah right. That’s 72 chaturangas in a row in a minute!
What better way to kick off summer then by sweating it out with me! I will be offering a “Fire Up Your Core” intensive July 10, 2014 at the York studio and I could not be more excited! You will incorporate full core attention and awareness into your physical practice. Core is critical in yoga poses and in general for stability and a healthy spine. With a strong core, you will be able to stand up taller and keep your body strong and safe. Combine that with a regular yoga practice, you’ll be able to enjoy all the summer activities we have here on the seacoast.
In this class, you will be introduced to new yoga flows and core work done with intention and purpose. You will explore the three layers of abdominals; transverse, rectus and obliques. We will play with some arm balances and expect to twist it out to wring it out. There will be time for breath work and rest and counter-posing.
You will leave with a new awareness of the core, which will strengthen and deepen your personal practice and life for the future. This is definitely not a class to be missed. So whether you are looking to detox a little, explore arm balances, or just learn something new, come join me in July!
