SPINAL TONIC, CORE STRENGTH AND OUTDOOR YOGALATES SESSIONS AT FRASER SUITES DUBAI

Just like servicing a car, your body and mind require weekly maintenance to stay mobile. Stretching and strengthening your shoulders after spending hours behind your laptop not only feels GREAT, but it lowers the risk of sudden spasms, strains, muscle knots and fatigue. Sounds familiar? Here is what one of our dedicated members, a runner and long time Dubai resident had to say…

I’m originally from London and I’ve been managing arabianEye – a photo agency based in Media City – for the last 4 years. I’ve been attending Yogalates for several years now and have been meaning to write this testimonial for quite some time! Having experienced long term issues with my lower back, I was recommended to try Yogalates as a means to strengthen my core. Over a year later, my back is far better than ever and my posture has significantly improved. As well as the physical benefits, I have found that Yogalates really helps me to unwind after a stressful day at work.

I can sometimes turn up in an awful mood (!) but will leave feeling great! I love being outdoors at the moment, so the setting for me is ideal compared to all the other yoga and pilates classes in Dubai” – Greg Aslangul

The Importance of Core Strength in a Yoga Practice!

Standard

Yogalates Core Strength

If you practice Yogalates at Fraser Suites, you might have heard our instructors stress on “engaging the core” in poses when flowing from chair pose to plank. And have you noticed how as soon as you engage your abdominals, it helps you balance and transition into poses more effectively? That’s your core muscles speaking!

Why is core strength important in yoga?
A strong core stabilizes your whole body, both on your yoga mat and daily life and errands. When you neglect to work your core, you increase risk of injury, mainly in the lower back. For example, in Chair Pose, it’s easy to sit into this pose and direct all your weight onto your glutes. Great work for your lower body however, when you pull your belly in towards your spine, this takes a little bit of weight out of your legs, prevents any chances of a lower back strain while stabilizing your deep core muscles. So now the work is balanced evenly across your abs, back and lower body for a total workout.  A strong core also enhances grace and stability during simple transitions from Warrior 2, to extended side angle, and back to reverse warrior. In addition, core strength is required for arm balances and inversions like crow pose, headstand or forearm stand.

The importance of core strength OUTSIDE of yoga into your daily life…

Our sweet corporate lifestyle might not be too sweet to our back as chances are, you spend a large time sitting in front of a computer screen or being on foot all day. Sitting and standing for long hours puts a lot of strain on your lower back, since your lower back supports the large majority of your weight. When you have a strong core, it helps protect your body from the wear and tear of sitting and standing all day. It allows you to also move with more grace and fluidity when you’re walking up the stairs or twisting to grab a box.

Next time you’re at Yogalates or any Yoga session, try to activate about your core muscles during each pose, and within each transition. Feel how it transforms your experience. Then, continue to think about your core strength when you leave the class to walk to your car and throughout your daily life because chances are, you will stand taller, move more fluidly and keep your precious spine supple and strong!
