Yoga In 60 Seconds ~ Core Balancing Cat
A Core Activator From All Fours
Get that core activating! When you think about your core, movements like sit-ups might spring to mind. However, they have limited value on their own.
Balancing practices like standing work and this core balancing cat naturally activate your core muscles. Everyone has core muscles and you don’t have to have a flat tummy to have a strong core. This is a myth so you can let go of that goal right now!
Improving Your Balance
What is important is putting the body into positions where the core naturally engages and is forced to work to stop you from overbalancing, just like this sequence. You don’t have to activate the core consciously, it will do its magic in the background if you give it the opportunity. The more you practice, the easier it will be. Your balance will improve over time as you go. You may like to do a warm-up of the spine first with our cat stretch video since you are down here on all fours anyway.
