Following on from our yoga and core strength article, we’ve gathered a selection of the best yoga poses to strengthen your core.
Remember, yoga is less concerned with the appearance of ripped abs, than with building a stable, coordinated centre of movement. As you perform the poses, try to maintain an awareness of both your inner and physical core, breathing deeply and calmly with respect for your body.
The benefits? Proper alignment, greater energy and yes – also a toned torso!
DOLPHIN PLANK POSE
Get yourself into plank position with your whole forearms and palms on the ground. You want your body to be one straight line between your head and your heels.
Engage your abs by drawing your belly button toward your spine. Pull your shoulders up away from your ears and look down between your hands.
