Abdominal Strength – Weekly Advanced Class 37

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class concentrates on yoga poses that help to improve abdominal strength. No standing poses or inversions are included in this 30 minute sequence. The reclining leg stretches supta padangusthasana are used at the start of the class to prepare your body for the abdominal poses that will follow. From there you are straight into abdominal strengthening poses.

Urdhva prasarita padasna is taught initially from a static position with you lying on your back and holding your legs upright. From there the pose develops more dynamically as you raise and lower your legs at 30° and 60° intervals.

Paripurna navasana is then practiced in stages of gradually increasing difficulty. The support of a wall is used if necessary. Finally a version of pavana muktasana is used to help strengthen your obliques.
