We have unique ways of ascribing a variety of emotions to the belly: “My guts are in a knot,” “I knew it in my gut,” “gut-wrenching,” and “No guts, no glory.” Yet, too often, we place more emphasis on the way the abdomen looks rather than on how it feels and functions. Yoga Abs outlines a series of exercises, yoga poses (asana), and breathing practices (pranayama), designed to achieve optimal health for this crucial area, which houses the organs of both digestion and procreation. Drawing on her experience as a yoga instructor and physical therapist, Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., discusses the anatomical and philosophical aspects of the abdomen, and offers a set of movements that create awareness of these important muscles, and deveop and maintain abdominal strength. Each exercise and asana lists:

  • the props, or supports, needed
  • safety guidelines
  • practice instructions

In addition, she includes practical guidelines for moving mindfully through everyday tasks.
