Yoga Core Strengthening Routine: March 2017

Yoga Core Strengthening Routine: March 2017Hi Everyone! This month I'm excited to have Ali our Get Lean Yoga Instructor sharing a fantastic core strengthening routine. You may remember Ali from our Power Yinyasa Yoga last year. In yoga nearly all the poses utilize the core muscles.

I hope you love this routine as much as I [more]
