The challenge in yoga and other mind-body disciplines is to lighten and lift your core body without tightening or causing constriction. By strengthening the musculature and ligaments along your spine, build a strong and pliable interior core. Do this through balancing poses for your arms and legs, as well as navasana (boat pose) and twists to counter. Immerse yourself and create vitality in your body while cultivating feelings of levity and grace. Props Needed: A blanket, a bolster and a strap.
