Fab Abs

 - 
Duration: 
20 mins

Introducing TOGA: an exhilarating fusion of yoga and strength training - perfect to help build both flexibility and power.

In this short class Radha focuses on the abdominal muscles to help us strengthen and tone using interval training and yoga poses. Be warned - it’s a strong session! So, please do take care if you have back problems or if you’re not used to working the abs hard. Remember, you may need to build up slowly by doing less repetitions or modifying the exercises.

Hiya Kay, Thanks so much for your reflection. Toga is a fusion of yoga and strength training, combining elements of Dru Yoga and gym type exercises to respond to the requests from some of our students for a stronger work out. Mona's session called Dru Core Strength, is an alternative class you may enjoy to tone the abs :-) please find link below. https://druyoga.com/yoga-online/video/dru-core-strength

This was not so much a yoga class as a keep fit class for 20 somethings delivered at break neck speed. Didn't like the use of a stop clock - against basic yoga principles. No lead in to the harder exercises just advanced level from the off. will not be doing it again. There are plenty of yoga asana which work the abs. I will go to the local gym if I want this sort of thing.

Nice class. Need to watch a few more times, so as to work out which bits I could modify for my oldies in my classes
