Dru Core Strength

 - 
Duration: 
35 mins

Strengthen your core from top to toe with strong, focused moves to protect your back and ensure you are performing at peak.

Mona Fairholme, yoga sports coach, takes you through a complete programme and her top tips for effective core development. Enjoy a fantastic series of movements specifically designed to seriously strengthen your core! Enjoy our fabulous online studio tutor – Mona Fairholme; an Irish firecracker with an amazing ability to get you into your intensive core yoga practice.

The activations will loosen up the body then discover where your core stability muscles ARE and how to engage them from the 'all fours' position. Strengthen your core with developments of the traditional stomach crunch – popular with footballers worldwide! The boat posture is perfect for core with unexpected additions! Discover a new way to work into Setubhandasana with the golden bridge.

Last but not least… if you are still with us... the plank into the side plank is such a great work-out for your core – this is not for the faint of heart – or even the faint of core stability! Good luck with this workout!

That was fabulous! I had been looking for more variety in the ways we teach core strengthening. This shows some stronger moves than I am used to too which is also desirable. Wonderful inspiration, thank you!

Hi Mona It's a year since I saw you teach in person in Leeds. A year later I understand how very important those core muscles are having used them a lot. Loved the boat table and the side plank quite amazed I can now do thanks to all that seemingly simple core work. Lovely class and lots to take into my own explanation when teaching. Thank you xx

Wow what a great class!!I'm finally understanding the whole "engage core" while still breathing thing I've struggled with for so long and attempted the plank (not much but off the ground slightly) which I didn't think I'd manage....thanks so much will be repeating this class often!

I loved this class. Great activations and a lovely stepped approach to core strength. But it looks as if you are trying to keep Mona's identity a secret with all those pixilations!
