About Core Strength Vinyasa
Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic style of yoga founded by renowned teacher and wellness expert Sadie Nardini. It is a perspective on all yoga which emphasizes understanding and focus on the core of our yoga poses on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic.
It uses Core Principles, ways to clarify what the core is, exactly how to instruct it and activate the core within the yoga practice. Besides the abdominal muscles, there is a whole world of muscles, actions, energy and philosophy contained within the core of the body and spirit complex, and Core Strength Vinyasa teaches how you can make it work for you.
There are also Core Poses, specific movements, postures and sequences that bring the student into more core-generated alignment, improving safety and stability while causing a more efficient total body/mind transformation.
Together, the Principles and Poses simplify how to access, comprehend and use the “core” most efficiently to gain the maximum yoga benefits including calorie burn, strength, flexibility, focus, self-awareness and confidence in the least amount of time.
Because of its multi-level actions, and focus on constant core connection, Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga is one of the most effective yoga practices for sparking major changes both inside and out.
Core Strength Vinyasa in Bicester & Oxford are fun, challenging, flowing classes colourfully infused with a blend of different yoga styles. The teacher Kristine takes you to your edge while at the same time allows you to work with your own abilities. Provides a relaxed, light-hearted approach and a non-competitive environment to yogis of all levels. Although we aim to get better everytime, we don't like to take ourselves too seriously in class, so giggles are highly encouraged! :)
