The author of Master Your Core is a brilliant woman who has done much research for professionals in her area of expertise. As I am not one of those, I found some parts difficult to read despite being a retired professor.
That said, I still learned a lot about what the core is and why it’s so important to master. Like most people, I assumed it was about flat abs. It is so much more than that.
I was especially interested in the parts about knees, posture, washing dishes, sleep posture, and sitting at the computer. I am an author who knows I need to stand up and walk around after sitting every 45 minutes but I have to admit that hasn’t been the case for a while.
Chapters Five-Seven and Twelve were easy because I taught those things as a Holistic Health practitioner. I applaud her for putting them in her book. A holistic approach is required for success.
The only suggestion I can make is to re-do Chapter Ten so exercise instructions are on the same page as a much larger drawing of the exercise in question so people can see them better. As a yogini, I have done many of those but I doubt everyone who reads this book has. If the reader cannot see the illustration if they must flip back and forth between text and diagram on different pages, how will they do the exercise correctly?
I recommended this book to a friend who said, “Tighten your core while you walk” when I was working on correcting my “forward head syndrome”.
