Strong to the Core: A Yoga Workshop

Strong to the Core: A Yoga Workshop with Melissa “Mati” Elstein, RYT, Esq.

Monday, April 29 • 6:30–8:30 p.m.

Learn safe and effective ways to strengthen the core, especially the hard-to-reach lower abdominals. Strong abs make balancing poses easier and are the key to a graceful posture. In this workshop you will learn abdominal exercises that are alternatives to traditional crunches, thereby preventing any neck or upper-back tension. The workshop also includes back-strengthening poses, as well as a focus on standing balances. Enhance your Yoga practice with a strong center!
Includes Yoga: All Levels
