Getting upside down in yoga and moving through space requires a tremendous amount of core control – exactly what this plan is designed to build. Core Control is the perfect compliment to your yoga Inversions practice.

About Core Control Yoga

For those of you who are working on inversions such as headstands, arm balances, and headstands this plan is the perfect compliment to your practice. While these workouts are short, they are TOUGH, so expect to get sweaty, get strong, and build the strongest, best looking core you’ve ever had.

Preview the plan here.

Core Control is one part of the Inversions Bundle, a five-part online yoga series. Check out the full bundle here.

The internet is abuzz in awe of Kacy Catanzaro, the first woman to ever qualify for American Ninja Warrior’s finals on Mt. Midoriyama.

While everybody is excited and amazed by Kacy, I’m going to go out on a limb and assert that her win felt like a win for every girl & woman watching.

That’s because after a record year of the media telling women we aren’t capable of doing things, from NYT publishing an article about how women can’t do pull ups, to the Winter Olympics insisting on shorter runs & smaller jumps for women’s courses, to Congress generally treating women like children who aren’t capable of making their own healthcare choices… us ladies really needed a win.

Then came Kacy:

BEAST.

Kacy used to be an elite gymnast, and it shows. Gymnasts rock.

But here’s a thought, American Ninja Warrior (if you’re listening, which I doubt, but oh well), why don’t you make your courses less focused on upper body strength – which men obviously have an advantage in – and provide obstacles that require a larger variety of skills. Flexibility, balance, agility, lower body strength – these are all things that women have an advantage in - yet rarely appear on the show.

Biased much?
