We all want a tight and toned tummy- but did you know that having a strong core also prevents back injuries and improves our posture and digestion?
If you’re a regular at PPHY, you will be familiar with those tough Pilates Roll-Ups towards the end of our Hot26 class! However, there are lots of other ways to strengthen your core! We are very conscious of keeping our tummies strong and flat so that we can perform at our best during yoga! Want a new way to work your core? Try one of our favourites- THE TIGER CURL!
1. Start in downward-facing dog position
2. Inhale and bring the right knee forward (as shown) and aim to touch the nose with the knee. Curve the upper back and spine. Hold for 3-5 seconds.
3. Exhale, push the right foot back to meet the left in downward-facing dog position.
4. Repeat 10 times on each side.
This is an awesome move that you can do ANYTIME, ANYWHERE to target your lower abs and obliques! Have fun!
