CSL shows you how yo easily strengthen your core with one yoga inspired move: boat pose.  Plus how to stay fit chic during winter!

Begin in a seated position. Inhale as you bend the knees keeping the feet flat on the floor. bring your hands to the side of your thighs with your fingers pointed forward.  Exhale as you lean back lifting your heels five centimetres off the floor. Ensure your spine is straight, your chest is open and shoulder blades pressed together.

Slowly straighten and lift your legs straight up in front of you. Move your arms parallel to the floor, palms facing down. Hold for 2-5 breaths. To release, exhale and bend the knees, and return to sitting position.

CSL’s go to look for winter fitness fun

The hardest part of jogging in winter is knowing what to wear. It’s a case of Goldilocks – too many layers and you end up being too hot, not enough layers and you’re too cold. To get it just right opt for fitting pieces made of moisture-wicking fabrics.
