15 Minute Core Workout
From Jenn Collotta
An in-depth look into practice
Welcome to our 15 minute core intensive class! In this practice, we will work through multiple core exercises sequenced specifically to hit every part of your midsection.
We start with crunches to warm up your rectus abdominus, the top, most superficial layer of your core. Moving onto yogi bicycles, we invite intentional twisting in to target the side body, or oblique muscles. Once these two areas are activated, our attention moves leg lifts and lowers, which targets the transverse abdominus, the deepest, and hardest to reach part of your core. Putting all of this work into action, we move on to a plank series filled with high planks, forearm planks, and knee taps for muscle isolation and full body control. Finishing off with Boat Pose, Navasana, we offer small, isolated movements back in with crunches, toe taps, twists, and high to low boat.
This sequence is sure to have have your belly burning by the end!
