Shaken to the Core- A Exploration in Hot Yoga

Corepower Hot Yoga is like a typical workout on steroids. It might sound intimidating, especially to beginners, but the classes with heated temperatures are offered at all levels. The Corepower classes also focus on strengthening the abdominal muscles commonly referred to as the core (hence its name). If you can’t stand the discomfort of doing crunches, the Corepower workout will strengthen your abdominal muscles without straining your neck. The steamy surroundings of a 105-degree room make a demanding workout even more challenging.
