Your core is not only your abdomen, but also your obliques, back, buttocks, and thighs, including the inner and outer thighs. As you build your core strength, notice the stability of your hips and the resulting stability of the spine.

This Andiappan practice will build your physical strength as well as work towards strengthening your mind. This Yang practice may be challenging at times. Concentrate on your body, progress in your practice step-by-step and stay aware of your body's energy and limitations.

The class begins with a warm-up sequence to prepare your body for the core practice and the final headstand inversion pose. You will start with warming up obliques, thighs, and back muscles through variations of Konasana and Utkatasana (Chair pose). Strengthening poses such as: Lolasana (Pendant pose), Navasana (Boat pose), Ardha Purvottanasana (Reverse Table Top) and Salabhasana (Locust Pose) are practiced with counterposes to neutralise and protect your body. 

Towards the end of the practice we will strengthen the core muscles in variation of Sirsasana (Headstand). Please have a wall with you if you need the support, and be mindful of your limitations as you practice online.
