Core Fantastic

Intermediate II

Make your core fantastic with this awesome yoga/pilates fusion class! It's a quickie, but be ready for a challenging core workout. Kim, in her wonderfully light-hearted style (and her wonderful polka dot pants!) has a way of making you feel like you can do what your body is telling you that you can't. This short video is included in the Class Pack, Level 3 Yoga/Pilates Fusion.

Probably should comment since I've been coming back to this work out for a few years now! I'm a med student, so I always appreciate an efficient workout that fully utilizes every minute, and this is exactly that! Plus her cheery attitude always makes me smile . Thank you for this!

Perfect for a quick session. You have an excellent way of guiding, Kim and are good at explaining things in a way that makes the adjustments easy to understand.

I was looking for a short class which focused specifically on building up core strength and this class definitely did that. I agree that the delivery was cheerful and encouraging and it didn't feel like hard work! However, like others, I had to stop the video a few times to work out exactly what I was supposed to be doing. If the explanations were a little bit clearer, this would be a 5* class for me. Thanks!

I recommend redoing this unit. It's a nice little sequence, but the lack of cuing is frustrating. Also, I would add a few minutes to allow the practitioner to feel her body more in each pose and in each transition. Thnak you for your consideration.

I want to hate core workouts but Kim's lovely spirit makes this enjoyable. I appreciate the reminders to not stress the lower back. Great quick class! Thanks Kim

Fantastic core workout, but narration could be improved. I had to keep looking at my laptop to see what the next move was.

Hi Kim
Thanks for your class. It was really good and I feel stretched and open , early in the morning. I loved the transitions in the class. They were gradual and fluid. Looking forward to trying other classes from you.

Class jumps right into some core burning moves. I'm not in very good shape, but Kim's counting really helped me get through all the reps of each exercise. Was challenging for my arm-strength with no direction on how to do a vinyasa while protecting the shoulders, so this might not be suitable for a beginner.

Beautiful energy from the teacher, however I feel the abs could be a bit more challenging for an intermediate level. This felt more like a beginner class.

Thank you Kim. As a very busy mum this is ideal while the little lad sleeps upstairs and he other child at school. Me time to a T and fits in well with other Yoga styles i practice. Great core session! :)

The flow of the entire session is just so wonderful. Couple of the poses which Kim included in the session are just as powerful as simple and easy. I can't recall the last time I did the Happy Baby Pose... God! Loved its lightness and serenity.

Thank you Kim.

This was no joke. I was sweating and my abs were shaking. Also got a decent back and hip/quad stretch. Will be doing this again!

Quick, intense, and effective. A lovely addition to other 20-30 min sessions I do when I want to work on more targeted areas. Thank you, Kim! :)

What a great little short sharp shock that was. Finished a long swim and was looking for for a bit more. This was ideal, and what a pleasure listening to Kim's instruction. Yet another class I will visit regularlyB-)

This workout is both relaxing and a great strengthening session for the core. I love doing it pre- or post-run, and I usually feel some soreness in my obliques the next day!

I really like Kim as an instructor, which is very important for a satisfying experience. She explains the poses well as she goes. Thanks, Kim.

I love this practice. It's actually a 24 minute video though, not 18. It's a small issue, but it would be nice to get that fixed so that it shows up with the other 20-30 minute videos. Thank you to David for creating this site. I'm a college student without access to regular group yoga classes and it is wonderful to be able to come here daily without worrying about financial obligations and know that I can put something back into the site when I have a proper job.

this video is underrated! kim has a really nice presence, and if you do the poses correctly and adjust them to accomodate your desired intensity it's a great core workout. i am dealing with some back, hamstring and hip issues lately, and i felt great after doing this + david's deep hamstring/hips release videos.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

You are absolutely right - I mixed up her Core Fantastic and Armilicious classes. They are now in their correct places!

All the best,

This was great! I find I have a weak core (need to work it more) this is short but gets right to where it counts!

Ok, I've been doing this Core Fantastic workout for a while now and always thought it seemed more like an arm workout rather than core. Is it possible that Core Fantastic and Armilicious are titled wrong and they should actually be swapped? It just seems like Core Fantastic focuses on my arms while Armilicious focuses on my core...

I have the same impression for this workout. Of course, the plank poses work your core, but I think that with the Chadarangas and twists it is more an arm workout. Nevertheless, I liked it and will do it more often in order to work my arms.

Good afternoon! I subscribe to the page because I like to do yoga daily. My husband made a subscription-donation of $ 3 per month. Whenever I tried to make a class, this is interrupted. Can you help me? Thank you!

Hi there.

Thanks for the email.

It's difficult to know exactly what is happening, but there are a couple of things that you can try, that often solve the problem.

1) Our videos often freeze around the 20-minute mark when played on an iPad or iPod, so you'll want to watch them on a laptop or desktop.
2) Use Google Chrome as your browser. Chrome seems to work best with our site.
3) Press play, then pause and wait for a few minutes to allow it to load. Once you press play again, as long as your internet connection if fairly good, it should play through without a problem.

Let me know if that helps!
