2.  Learn to Activate the Psoas - "The Core of Your Core".

The psoas group connects your upper body to your lower body, & your inner emotional body to your physical body.

The psoas is involved with moving, breathing, organ support, emotions, & spine alignment. Activating your psoas in synergy with the rest of your core abdominal muscles is the key to a pain-free body & a strong, stable core.

Many common abdominal exercises strengthen through flexion, or shortening, of the trunk muscles. This eventually leads to pain, misalignment, & injuries.

The focus in YogAlign is to train your core muscles predominately as stabilizers of the truck & extenders of the spine.

1.  Create the Foundation with SIP Breathing.

It is not what you do that is most important, but how you breathe while you are doing it. Optimal fitness requires learning to breathe deeply & efficiently.

Breathing brings oxygen into our body, & is the most important exercise in which our body engages. Our breathe creates basic structural body alignment, directs our nervous system responses, & defines our emotional well-being.

Learning to breathe deeply with your inner core muscles is the most important life skill you can learn.
