Make sure that every practice, and everything you do in life comes from a position of strength, power and a strong sense of you. You’ll be much less prone to injury.
With a powerful, strong centre you will be able to access stability and strength in every area of your life.
With these daily yoga practices - plus tips and information about the importance of a powerful center for creating stability in every area of your life - you'll notice your body, your practice, and your sense of moving throughout your life from a position of strength and courage.
Have fun, enjoy that beautiful burn, feel the strength and power. Oh, and did we mention that your abs may start to look pretty hot too.

Mandala Salutations:Twists & Core
This is a feisty, swift-moving mandala-inspired sun salutation based vinyasa yoga class. If you only have a spare half hour, it’s a sure and fast way to get you flowing and sweating creatively. This flow focuses on twists and core stability; it is the espresso of morning practices with plenty of core work and some feisty moves. Expect lots of lovely twists, twisted lunges and twisted half moons and inversions. This is a Mandala journey, so you will be moving 360 degrees around your mat, so perhaps watch the class first to find out where Katarina takes you, or listen intently, as you won't always be able to see the screen. This change of perspective is a perfect way to change the way you look at life, getting insight from new ways of seeing things. The class focuses on twisting and rinsing out the body; igniting Agni (internal fire), strengthening our core and activating Manipura chakra, our source of willpower and transformation, this class is tough, fast and fun. We recommend you do a warming up practice and a relaxation practice afterwards, but this one is the pure-flow for those who just need to move! You will need two bricks.
