Core Training

Core = kernel
Core = torso

Pilates named these muscle groups, which work synergistically (together), the Powerhouse muscles. The deep back extensors are connected to the transverse abdominal muscles, the pelvic floor and the oblique abdominal muscles. All of these muscles support each other, and together they provide stability for the body. Stronger core muscles will help to ensure that

  • internal organs occupy their proper place,
  • arm and leg movements work more efficiently and dynamically,
  • the entire spine is protected and supported.

The Yoga and Pilates as a single DVD, as well as the newly launched Set Yoga with a ball, Band + FLEXI-BAR Pilates DVD are all geared specifically towards conditioning and toning the core muscles.
