Core Strength

Yoga uses your own body as the weight you lift and hold. Sounds like gymnatics and bodyweight exercises.  Many yoga postures require major and minor muscle groups to be used simultaneously. Some people feel like every muscle in their body is being used! This is different than traditional weight lifting. The strengthening in yoga requires your entire body to be working as one unit. The strengthening of one muscle group is connected to that of another muscle group. This improves your overall core strength from a centered and connected place. You will find it much easier to move quickly and effortlessly in sports when your whole body feels strong as a unit.
