Firestarter: Smoke the Core

Mark Morford

Smoke the Core

Newsflash: Core work has nothing to do with developing rock-hard abs. It’s not about grimacing through a pile of crunches you sort of hate but “endure” because you know you “should” (or if it is, perhaps it’s time to rethink your practice).

Core work is about deep ignition. It’s an intentional tool to more deliberately, skillfully digest/burn off what we consume, and better access our true center to maintain physical AND energetic poise, even as the world hurls its madness all over you.

We start with kapalabhati to ignite the breath, polish the skull and bring some heat to your attention. Followed by a rapid buffet of crunches, bicycles, scissors, oblique pulses, a few other core bits you can totally handle once you stop thinking so much and embrace the fire. You know you want to.
