Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0939616599, Spiral-bound)The core itself is the root of our being, the center of our balance, and in a healthy body is also the root of our movements. Many of us know how to train the outer core but are disconnected from our inner core. By learning how to reconnect to your inner core, you can prevent/recover from injuries, improve your posture, enhance athletic performance and create more efficient movement patterns. In this book you will learn: how to cultivate your core; the difference between the inner and outer core; how to develop strength and ease in both; how to improve pelvic stability; the importance of diaphragmatic movement to stability of the core; the difference between pilates and yoga breathing; the connection between poor core stability and injury; how to recover from injury by improving core stability; practices that will progressively stabilize and strengthen your core. Suzette is a yoga therapist, pilates instructor, and kinesiologist. She has an extensive background in personal training, and is a trainer of trainers. Her experience has shown that people often work too hard at core stability, and instead create rigidity. Rather than cultivating suppleness they create hardness. These two things, rigidity and hardness, prevent you from tapping into the true wisdom of your body.
