Product DescriptionA unique vocabulary exists that ascribes a variety of emotions to the belly: “my guts are in a knot,” “I knew it in my gut,” “gut-wrenching,” and “no guts, no glory. ” Yet too often, more emphasis is placed on the way the abdomen looks than how it feels and functions – a sterling six-pack can mask true abdominal trouble.

Yoga Abs: Moving from Your Core

  1. I’m a big fan of yoga for all-over body fitness – mind, body, and spirit. This book presents great yoga poses for strengthening the body’s core. A companion book to this one is Mary El-Baz’s “Transform Your Core 6-Week Workbook. ”

  3. I usually enjoy Lasater’s books. My teacher training required us to have one of them, and I found it useful, this book to me was a waste of a perfectly good amazon gift certificate.
    There was no new information, it reitterated all of the information I already knew, and I found it did not actually hold that many asanas, ie: stand tall and raise your leg out in front of you to strengthen the psoas – kind of like padangusthasana, but honestly – I already knew this – and several other modifications of poses. I guess I just had high hopes of more complex series. This is a book best for the layperson with little knowledge of anatomy and yoga who needs help to figure some things out.

    As a Pro Trainer and Self Transformed ‘Fat Kid’, I don’t totally agree that ‘flat abs, etc. is not natural’.

    Having lived through my personal transformation, I know first hand how natural it can be.

    That being said, this book gives a great perspective on a subject that many people struggle with. Any exerciser will be able to get something out of this book, as this subject area still needs more experts to educate the general public.

    Add it to your fitness library.
