Core Power Hour by Sadie Nardini

Feel Sexy Today
Can’t remember the last time you walked down the street with some sassiness in your step or looked in the mirror and thought, “Damn, I’m hot!”? Well, today’s the day to bring sexy back.
True sexiness isn’t about slipping into slinky lingerie. It stems from inner confidence and vitality. But let’s face it, a toned outer body doesn’t hurt either. This yoga practice will strengthen you to the core, sculpting the salacious parts like hips, thighs, belly and rear, and give you energy for miles, raising self-esteem from the inside out. Plus, it amps up the root area, from the pelvic floor to the navel, which is believed to be the source of creativity, inspiration, and sensuality.
Do the practice three times a week, or whenever you want to get reacquainted with your flirty, fabulous, self and you’ll infuse your days - and nights - with the inner sexiness that only you can bring.

Hold each pose for 5-10 breaths unless directed otherwise. Add this sequence into your regular practice, or do it solo for a quick and effective 10-minute inner sexy workout.
