The focus of a Yoga practice should be a strong, stable core. Ancient Yoga teaches that we are only as strong as our spine is flexible. However, flexibility comes from training trunk muscles to move the joints of the spine, hips, and shoulders to their greatest extent while honoring their structure and function.
This video features many common Yoga positions and motions that are designed to target these muscles by positioning the body in such a way to oppose gravity for resistance. Adding free weights and elastic bands to the isometric resistance felt in Yoga poses creates even more challenge and also helps you to gain a better understanding of the poses themselves. Increased bone density, muscle strength, joint stability and range of motion is the result. Notice stronger abdominals and hip flexors so that you have better overall posture, better ability to sit up, and better ability to bend over!
