About the Series

Build graceful strength and practice with ease by understanding how to move from your core. This series fills in the gaps of the popularized six-pack ab routine to ignite your core from all angles.

During this 14-day challenge, we isolate, engage, and strengthen five of the major abdominal wall muscles: transverse abdominis, psoas, rectus abdominus, and internal and external obliques. Using targeted drills and efficient exercises, we activate your core as a whole from every angle. Whether your goal is to hold a handstand, find fluidity in your practice, or have better posture, this plan will bring a sense of strength and lightness to your movements both on and off the mat.

Included are 12 quick yet fiery classes and two 30-minute flows. In the short drill classes, we activate, isolate, and strengthen each of these areas in multiple directions. You will learn to incorporate breath and how to fine-tune movements to build even strength across your entire midline. The two “Burn Classes” put the drills into practice. You will not only implement the techniques from previous classes, but apply the strength you have developed.

This series is ideal for someone looking for a fun way to strengthen their core, especially those looking to bring grace, control, and deepened skill to their movements. Modifications and various options are provided to make this series as approachable as possible.

instructor Instructor profile

Erin Kelly is a traveling yoga teacher based in Venice Beach, California. Known for her grace and fluidity of movement, she can often be found playing upside down or cultivating creativity through unique transitions. While her teaching style is refreshing and light, she incorporates precise cues and pose breakdowns to help students understand the movements of their bodies and the path to personal growth.

A true artist by nature, Erin received a BFA in Oil Painting from The Maryland Institute College of Art. Whether it’s with a paintbrush in hand, or through body movement, she is prudently creating her own form of art and expression. She continues to develop a strong personal practice, and consciously chooses not to be defined by a particular style or lineage of yoga. She has studied under Meghan Currie, Tearson Bickmore, and has received extended hours of Dharma and Rocket Yoga experience under a Yancy Schwartz mentorship.

She has been featured in and contributed to publications including Mantra Magazine, Yoga Guide Magazine, and Yoga Journal. These days, you can find her focusing her time on creating unique, informative, and stimulating classes, workshops, and trainings.
