ĀsanaPilates

A group exercise combination of Āsana (yoga postures) and Pilates, creates a mind to body session, that will improve body awareness.  We practice Āsana to maintain and improve strength and flexibility, Pilates to focus on core and stabilising muscles and with using the passage of the breath, we keep the mind’s attention on the body, creating a meditative practice.

Motivation, interest, social atmosphere and encouraging healthy behaviour and choices away from the class, are just some of the benefits to a group exercise class.  The benefits of combining Āsana and Pilates, gives an introduction to one or maybe both disciplines;  Āsana improves your physical fitness and Pilates creates an awareness of posture.  Both improve mind focus and attention, improves the breath, relieves stress and tension, are a therapy to alleviate and improve health and or balance physical related conditions.  Is used as an injury avoidance practice or can be used as part of injury rehabilitation.

Groups must be a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 12 participants.  Please bring your own mats and 2 yoga blocks.  We may need to use support belts, these I provide.  Corporate or private courses run for 10 weeks, fees are £80 per person.  I would like to set up courses open to the public, therefore, I am looking for premises to rent.
