Yoga for Core Strength Part 2

Yoga for Core Strength Part 2

Yoga is truly a practice that changes your entire body and when you are consist, it does not take long to see or feel the difference.  Practicing a power flow allowed me to get my body back to a pre-baby body and I was not working any particular muscles just flowing.  Yoga has much to do with Core strength.  Many poses strengthen your core all around, front and back.  And it doesn’t always feel so intense, I’m not a fan of only doing crunches or sit ups.  I like to work out every muscle because all of our muscles work together in each moment so why strengthen one at a time…
