4 Easy Core Strengthening Yoga Exercises

Summer might be coming to an end, but working towards your fitness goals doesn’t have to!

We’ve put together some core-busting moves that even beginners can do, and best of all, you can do them right in the comfort of your own home!

Here are 4 quick positions that can strengthen your core.

4 Easy Core Strengthening Yoga Exercises

1. Warrior One

Though there are about 5 different warrior poses, this one also focuses on your breathing while strengthening the core and tightening the legs.

2. The Modified Boat Pose

This pose is much harder than it looks, which is why we’ve chosen to show you the modified version. Balance has a lot to do with a strong and healthy core. The Boat Pose will help to improve your balance and strengthen your core.

3. Downward Facing Dog to Plank

Planks are essential to a fit core. Planks are great because they also work your lower back, which contributes to the structure and leanness of the core.

4. Plank with Alternative Knee Drop and Lift

You will definitely feel the burn with this plank, but see great results in your core, while achieving a full body workout.

Incorporating these exercises into your daily routine even for a 10 minutes four or five times a week will eliminate body fat and strengthen your core.

Remember to always have some water on stand by, and never over-do a workout if any unusual pains or aches persist. Always consult with your physician if you have any interfering medical conditions.
