*This act is not part of Yoga posture but very effective to strengthen your core muscle and some priceless family bonding.*

Your core make up of three muscle regions on your body. That is abdominal, pelvic, and lower back. Basically, your core muscle located between your pelvis and the base of your ribcage. These muscles work together to support your spine. When you strengthen your core, you gain greater balance, stability and better posture.

Core muscles are the the vital foundation for all movement of your body. The muscles of your torso stabilize your spine and provide a solid foundation for developing strong shoulders, arms and legs. If the core muscles are weak, your body won’t work effectively, and other muscles have to pick up the slack. Weak core is why we ‘hunch’ our shoulders or get an aching back.

In Yoga, if you don’t build up your core muscles, you won’t be able to hold on some poses for a long period and hence, the reason why we are slipping away on the mat. Beginners usually blame it on the mat, but the fact is, they don’t have a strong core and not using the strength from their core muscle.

*Note: Refering to 2nd pic. Make sure you tuck in your tummy and tighten your inner tight. That is part of the secret to get rid of your love handle.

Namaste, everyone!
