5 Great Yoga Poses For A Strong Core
I see this title all over the place and people are always asking about Yoga for various body parts and the core is one of the most popular by far!
It’s not hard to figure out why, right? It’s because everyone desires a nice flat stomach or a 6 pack! Well, I’ve got something great to tell you… almost all exercises and certainly almost all Yoga poses can strengthen your core! WOO HOO!!
But, as promised in the title I've picked my top 5.
Will You Get A 6 Pack?
This is where things get interesting. Have you ever looked at the abs of your typical yogi? I’m going to show you some pics of some top yogini’s and myself (before my wedding cause I’ve gone a little food mad since the honeymoon oops. Just trying to be honest) 😉
Me – I certainly don’t love this picture lol, (why are my eyes closed??) I am happy with my stomach though. Notice, no 6 pack but it’s flat.
Cameron Shayne and his stunning wife Melayne Shayne – Again, notice that neither have that crazy 6 pack everyone goes on about, but they clearly have strong stomachs and I know for certain they’re both massively strong!
Kino MacGregor – Another amazingly strong Yogini with an incredibly regular practice, but again, no 6 pack just a beautifully toned tummy.
Shiva Rea – Who’s videos I have a lot of so I know her practice is strong and again no insane 6 pack just a really well defined stomach.
This isn’t even that crazy, I’ve seen bigger. I know a lot of people, mostly men who aspire to have this and women who want this…
and that’s lovely for them, I’m certainly not knocking their physiques, they look amazing, but what I do want to make clear is that very often, having muscle bulk like this does not equal strength and does not equal healthy or mobile.
