Core Concepts: Belly In For Life

Throughout the course of any yoga class, try to devote part of your mind to pulling the belly button towards the back of the spine. Most teachers will remind students to pull the belly in during different poses, but remind yourself to do it when you start to tire in a certain posture. Not only will it distract you from your hard-working arms and legs, but also pulling your belly in can help you get deeper into a pose. Plus, you are working your core muscles, and strong core muscles contribute to better posture and overall fitness not only for yoga poses but also for the activities of daily life.
