Summer is just around the corner, and the weather is not the only thing that is heating up! Yes, we all want to look our best at the beach, but this is also the prime time to practice heat-building core-centric yoga poses in order to harness spring's powerful transformative powers.
When we practice core work, we are stimulating the Vagus Nerve. The Vagus Nerve (housed partially in the solar plexus) regulates the body's parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for healthfully operating all of your body's systems. We are also cultivating Agni (heat) in your third chakra (Manipura Chakra), also housed in your solar plexus, which promotes healthy digestive function, and stimulates transition in your life.
So, grab your mat, set an intention, and practice this Agni mini-sequence to tone up your core and get out of that rut.
