Your core strength is so important on a physical, emotional, and mental level. Use Pilates exercise, breath, and core engagement to gain a new perspective on your yoga practice. Start on your back with core exercises and repetition to encourage deep abdominal engagement from every angle of the abdominal muscles. Continue to strengthen your upper body, back, and lower body with a plank series, sun salutations, and a strong standing sequence.
