Yoga

Yoga is ideal for continuous flowing exercises which can be linked together to form increasing levels of difficulty to strengthen and balance all parts of the body. Breathing and cardio-vascular health is stressed also with the importance of relaxation and mental wellbeing. It is an all-round practice that works on strength, flexibility and balancing body and mind. It helps us to become fitter and leaner or to help a nagging back problem. Benefits include: increased strength, healthier lungs and heart, lower blood pressure, improved digestion, sounder sleep, and a stronger immune system.Yoga emphasises on bringing body and mind together through the breath. One of the key aspects of yoga is focusing on the present moment without distraction and allowing the monkey chitter chatter in the mind to feel at ease. The classes begin with understanding the basic asanas/poses then become a combination of flowing movements working on different areas of the body. Classes may focus on detoxifying twist, relieving back tension some breath work, release shoulder tension…we cover many different areas in class and each week changes. I will always encourage you to try something new but it’s your class so experience as much or as little as you wish. We finish class with relaxation and occasional visualisations.

Pilates

Increasing strength without increasing bulk, Pilates exercises are typically done very slowly and therefore strength increases but also control. The slow speed is wickedly deceptive and exercises the muscles completely with no impact on the connective tissues. When we talk about using core muscles we are referring to your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles.If you want to reshape, re balance and realign then Pilates is for you. This form of exercise is non-impact, with the majority of the positions carried out on a mat. You will be taught the Pilates Technique and will then learn to master the breathing and muscle work skills. The result will be a toned and reshaped figure. Each position is explained in detail and you will be encouraged to work at your own personal level. Pilates focuses on building your body’s core strength and improving your posture through a series of low repetition, low impact stretching and conditioning exercises. When we talk about using core muscles we are referring to your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles. Through Pilates, you will be able to develop these muscles in supporting your body and at the same time toning your stomach and thigh muscles. The classes begin with the basic understanding of contracting the correct muscles and each exercise can develop further as you gain more understanding and core strength. We finish class with a short relaxation.
