What is Yoga?

Yoga is a form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of a yoga class are asanas (postures) and movements designed to increase strength and flexibility. Breathing is actively encouraged throughout the class and a relaxation exercise (savasana) is practised at the beginning and/or end of class. You will leave class feeling energised and relaxed.

Yoga is a fantastic form of exercise but also complements many sports and fitness activities because increased flexibility helps develop technique and aid training recovery.

Suitable for: All abilities

What is Pilates?

Pilates consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Regular Pilates practice can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility. Pilates complements other sports as it helps develop strength and flexibility while avoiding the risk of injury. It is also suitable for first time exercisers because it is slow and controlled. Pilates helps to reshape your body, enabling it to become longer, leaner, stronger and more toned.

Pilates plays a key role in many injury rehabilitation programme as it rebalances your body and brings it into correct alignment. It is particularly recommended for those who suffer from chronic back pain, sports injuries, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, RSI and stress related illnesses.

Suitable for: All abilities
