PILATES YOGA FITNESS CLASSES

Classes are specifically designed to balance, stretch and strengthen the body and mind, practicing safe and functional Pilates, Yoga and Fitness exercises incorporated in a flowing, energizing and calming sequence.

PILATES has a focus on engaging the mind and the body at the same time. This creates exercise that uses the entire body, which is all performed with attention to breathing, proper form/posture, and efficiency in movement. Core stability & functional fitness are a big focus & other benefits include improved strength, flexibility & balance. Pilates trains us to move efficiently & develop core strength, rather than holding our position with superficial musculature. Using the deep core muscles- abdominals, back and pelvic floor- to support our posture allows the shoulders to relax, the neck and head to move freely, and relieves stress on the back, hips, legs and feet. Daily tasks become easier and falls and injuries are less likely to occur.

YOGA poses and sequences are specifically chosen to be safe and effective (approved by the Fitness Industry Standards for safety), based on the traditional science of Hatha Yoga and the meditative flow of  Vinyasa Yoga with modifications to enhance accessability and benefits for all.  Some benefits include improved mobility, strength, flexiblity and restoration of movement fluidity to soft tissues bringing balance to the musculoskeletal system reducing pain and injuries. 
Moving and breathing consciously enhances well being and helps develop the skill of mindfulness releasing tension and restlessness in the body and mind, resulting in physical relaxation and stress reduction..."Being in the flow"...  Classes always end with meditation or relaxation which guarantees you'll leave feeling calm, centered and energized.
"The flow state...Unite body, mind and breath by cultivating a moving meditation to energise, renew, focus and inspire a state of joyful being" Heather Agnew from Vinyasa Flow, Trinity Yoga.

FITBALL  is a great tool that can assist or challenge when performing various exercises, and is also fun to use. Fitball exercises improve core strength, all round body strength, flexibility and balance.

FITNESS EXERCISES (low impact only) eg. Lunges, squats & planks etc. are performed to warm up & improve body conditioning, stamina and strength. Fitness bands, pilates rings and weighted balls are used to improve flexibility, joint strength and challenge the core.

TAI CHI evidence- based, safe & effective sequence of movements is practiced on some occasions depending on the weekly program. Yang style Tai Chi is used to improve physical, mental & cognitive health & achieve physical & mental relaxation. It is known as “meditation in motion”.
