Activate Your Creative Core: Pull in for Power

Episode 2

4.761365

An entirely supine practice (laying on your back), this fusion class with Ashleigh Sergeant is a powerful exploration of the heat and then steadiness that comes from turning, pulling, squeezing and curling deep within. Often we experience pain and tightness in our extremities that actually have their root imbalance in a much deeper place and are ultimately caused by a loss of connection with the core. Similarly, our feelings of separation and lack of inspiration come from a disconnect with our essential life force. This practice gets straight to the point and will leave you deeply connected to your strength with renewed inspiration and confidence.

Slow but intense. LOVE me a good old Ashley Sargent practice. Thanks gal!

This is the first Ashleigh Sergeant video I've tried but it won't be the last. She does a wonderful job of explaining all of elements of effective core work. Not a hard workout but it is intense if you stay focused on keeping your core engaged as she instructs. By the way, I found this searching for "hip openers". It is NOT a hip opener but it IS a great core workout.

lovely pace, beautifully guided. Ashleigh has a great teaching style.

Thank you for this beautiful practice. I like the pace and the descriptions of the configuration and purpose of each move. This was very meaningful to me, as well, because Ashleigh's observation that we can obtain what we want if we are CLEAR about what it is. This is something I struggle with. Of all the things I'd like to accomplish or experience--what should I focus on? You can't do everything! I will use this practice again and continue with the series.

Hi Debra.e.mcghee,

Thank you for sharing your practice! I'm so glad to hear that it was meaningful to you. You can add this video to your playlist to practice again anytime!

or is it meant to be done all in one day, 3-4 times a week? what's best? i REALLY need a core makeover--physically and spiritually. Thanks! Love the class so far. Brilliant. And so grateful for the new way of thinking about the core. Excited about the possibilities. :)

Hey BlissDetective,

Thank you for commenting and sharing your practice with us! To get the most out of the program I would just focus on keeping a schedule that works for you (daily, 3 times weekly, etc.) as long as it's consistent. Listen to your body and have patience with your progress, we're glad to hear from you along the way!

Thanks :)

I've struggled with hip flexer strength and being able to straighten my legs into navasana. FINALLY, I understand why and how to work towards straight legs. I've been struggling with low self-confidence after a ton of transition and I already feel better after doing such deep core work. Thank you! PS I actually liked the change up in music, seemed authentic to you.

Wow, what a satisfying class! Thank you, love your attention to detail.

Excellent practice, thank you Ashley. I found it super challenging and feel stronger for it. You describe things so very well, it is extremely helpful. Thank you.

Thank you so much for this class--this is just what I was looking for and needed. I resonated with drawing the energy in, as I have a tendency to over-extend as well. I felt this a lot deeper into my abs. Also, I suffer from TMJ and neck pain--so it was good to know that this is a normal thing, and that I can continue to increase my strength. I liked the visual of taking all the jaw tension and releasing it down to my core. Thank you! Any other suggestions for how to decrease TMJ?

KristenL@Gaia, posted on February 16, 2016

Hey Evolve04,

Thank you for commenting and sharing your practice! I would consult your doctor for advice on TMJ, but yoga focused on the upper body could help relieve some of that tension. I love this yin class for relaxing my neck and shoulders:

Hi Ashleigh,

I've done both of these and really love the balance between the physical instructions (very detailed) and the spiritual components of the class. I've been doing core work for a long time and still found a lot to learn here. Thank you.

rejuvenationlounge, posted on January 18, 2016

Thank you sooo much for this practice. Something deep inside me resonated with your message about personal power, and drawing in energy from all around you to fuel your own inner fire. That just clicked something for me...a light has been lit inside and it was just the answer I was looking for. Thank you again Ashleigh...Namaste light and love.
