Identifying our Core

Rectus-Abdominis-216x160

When you look at the picture of the abdomen above, it brings to mind photos of a person with a well defined “six pack”(rectus abdominus). Turns out that since the six pack muscles are very superficial compared to other abdominal muscles, they aren’t as important as other muscle groups in stabilizing our spine. In fact, we need all muscle groups, internal and external obliques, transverse abdominus to provide strength and flexibility. These groups lie deeper in our body making them difficult to admire as we can a “six pack”.

One of our mantras is “find balance”. Our practice this week will assist is in strengthening our muscles is a balanced way. We meet June 23, Monday nite, from 6:30-8:00 pm at the UU Church of Fresno. See you then!
