Pilates / Yogalates

Pilates is similar to yoga but emphasizes your body’s core — the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, butt, and so on. For this reason, Pilates develops much of what exercisers need — strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture — with a much lower chance of injury than with other forms of exercise. The discipline emphasizes correct form instead of going for the burn. With so many exercise variations and progressions, you may have a hard time getting bored with Pilates. Pilates is named after its inventor, Joseph Pilates, a former carpenter and gymnast who invented the exercise for injured dancers.

Yogalates - the idea behind this exercise system was to combine the focus on flexibility and spirituality from yoga with the deeper muscle work and emphasis on the postural muscles found in Pilates.Breath work is an important feature of Yogalates and yogic breathing techniques are taught. Reducing stress by connecting with the spiritual is another important focus of this form of exercise.
