You don’t have to bang out crunches to firm up your tummy. Yoga can give you even better results—and one studio is stepping up as the master of the yoga-for-better-abs game. CorePower Yoga first opened in Denver, Colorado in 2002 and has since expanded to more than 150 studios in 18 states. And whatever class you’re in, you can expect your abs to burn.
“If you look at all the poses put together in many of the [yoga] traditions, they work the entire core and all of the major muscles of the body in balance,” says Heather Peterson, chief yoga officer at CorePower.

But when Peterson says “core,” she doesn’t just mean chiseled abs. You can think of your core like your central powerhouse, extending from your diaphragm down to your pelvic floor, and from the deep and superficial abdominal muscles around to your sides to the muscles surrounding your spine, she says. Yoga works the whole package, giving you the core strength to do everyday activities safely and with more power, with the added bonus of ripped abs (if that’s what you happen to be after).
Peterson created this core workout based on the programming taught at CorePower studios. It’s designed to give you 360-degree core strength to help you in your yoga practice and off the mat in your daily life for years to come, she says.
How to: Take a three-foot-wide stance with your toes out and your heels in. Bend your knees, and keep your knees over your ankles, pointing the same direction as your toes. Bring your hands behind your head with your elbows wide. Inhale, twist right, exhale, twist left. Repeat for 20 breaths.
Benefits: Not only does horse work to strengthen the pelvic floor, which is the bottom of your core, but it also strengthens your obliques, glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings, says Peterson. “Since these are shorter breaths, this is also integrating your diaphragm, which is the top of your core.”
