Core exercises I.

The aim of this exercises is to move with your breath – always exhale on exertion, gently drawing in your lower abdomen as well as engaging your pelvic floor (similar to Kegel exercise).

HEEL DROP

Lying on your back, legs bent at 90 degrees angle. As you exhale, engage your core and pelvic muscles (as described above), slowly lower one of your heels down on the ground. Relax on your inhale and bring your leg back at 90 degrees angle. Alternate legs, do at least 10 reps on each side.

HEEL SLIDE

Lying on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the ground. As you exhale, engage your core and pelvic muscles and slowly slide one feet out. Inhale + relax, then engage your core again and on your exhale draw your leg back to the starting position. Repeat the movement on your other leg. Do at least 10 repetitions on each side.
