High quality courses and classes with experienced and authentic instructors.

Challenge Overview

Join us for the Strong Core Challenge—a series of classes that will help you to not only build your core strength, but also your confidence, enthusiasm, and capacity to handle life's challenges. Each week, for four weeks, you will receive a brand-new practice that will introduce fresh, fun, and delightfully intense ways to activate your core.  Take this challenge and you will:

  • Get one class each week for four weeks (you can do each week's class three to five times that week!).

  • Learn core-strengthening techniques that go beyond basic crunches and can be practiced individually or within a sequence.

  • Discover how to move with integrity and strength (rather than using momentum alone) in flow classes.

  • Explore how to use props to stabilize and empower your core work.

  • Experience creative core-powered transitions and pose modifications that will heat up and add variety to your practice.

Sign up today and take the Strong Core Challenge!

Section 1
  • Learn how to move with control and stability. This short and creative (crunch-free!) practice will help you connect to, and fire up, the core of your body—not only the abdominal area but your hips, shoulders, and back as well.
Section 2
  • This 30-minute class focuses on dynamic movement that will help you strengthen and empower your core. You'll learn new ways to use a block (that go beyond squeezing it between your thighs in crunches), blanket slide variations, and more. Let's begin!
Section 3
  • In this core-powered class, you'll learn how to flow on the mat with more strength and integrity. As you move slowly through heat-building asanas that will challenge you to your core, remember to take breaks in child's pose as needed (and breathe yogi, breathe!).
Section 4
  • Ignite the fire at your navel center with this spine-strengthening, core-focused twist sequence. You'll work hard, but there will also be plenty of opportunities to rest and reset so that you can integrate each challenge.
