Central intelligence

Your core is not just your abs. It is your entire body. By Charlotte Watts

There’s lots of talk of core strength and core stability and even equating particular yoga postures and practices to ‘core work’. It’s interesting then to notice that this is a very modern phenomenon within yoga. Why movement that we make, any postural practice we do, is never simply separated out into one part of the body but it is a culmination of exactly how our body is – one big completely interconnected system.

Understanding our true core also moves it away from a part of our body we simply focus on when exercising. Feeling it as the central channel, from where all of our movement originates opens out the physical exploration we do on the mat to noticing how we move ourselves through the world. This connection can then play out in a sense of grace and ease as go about our day.
