Yoga for the Core is an important contribution for not only yoga teachers and students, but anyone working in the movement therapies. Too frequently “train the core” has been misdirected to become “rigidity is good.” This insightful work states plainly and concisely how yoga reveals the sources of instability, from subtle awarenesses to physical weakness and loss of perception. The clearly stated concepts are backed by prudent and comprehensive instructions for developing a yoga program for stability, including awareness journaling. This book is a must-have for trainers, physical therapists, physical education instructors, and serious students of movement."

"You may have opened this book to relieve issues related to back pain, or to improve your yoga practice as a yoga teacher or student, or you may simply want to become stronger, to become more mobile, and to move around with greater ease. Whatever your situation, you’ve got a great book in your hands. Suzette is one of the best."
