Current health and fitness trends are taking us back to traditional practices that offer a holistic experience to strengthen one’s body and mind. The ever-popular practice of yoga is said to have existed for over 5,000 years however, 2018 has seen a resurgence in the modern-day person commencing on their personal yoga journey and you can find your perfect Yoga studio on King William Road.
The experts at Exhale Yoga explain that yoga is so much more than just a workout as it requires great discipline, “Yoga is a union created by quieting the chatter of the mind, building a healthy body, and being at peace with who you are and the world around you.”
Yoga builds strength, stability, control and endurance, in both a mental and physical sense. The meditative aspect allows the participant to become one with themselves, reduce stress and take a break from our busy lifestyles. At the same time, the physical benefits of yoga seek to increase strength, balance and flexibility whilst helping one live a healthier and happier life through a stronger, toned and more flexible body.
Yoga can play a vital role in stress relief and relaxation, allowing us to remain in touch with our emotions to build a gratified, peaceful and meaningful life. “Through controlled yoga breathing, physical practice and attention to awareness, the participant can experience a well-rounded holistic practice that balances and compliments all areas of life,” says the expert team from Yoga Theory.
Yoga Theory wants to spread the message that yoga is for everyone. The practice can be adopted by anyone, of any age, gender and fitness level – the specialists at Exhale Yoga agree, “We’ve had yogis from the ages of 5 to 95!”
A popular choice for injury rehabilitation, new mums and those wanting to activate deep strength, Pilates provides a gentle yet effective workout option.
Pilates is said to be one of the most intelligent ways to exercise – it corrects body alignment, sculpts muscles, increases core strength and ensures that the muscular and skeletal systems function to the best of their ability. The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and strong to function harmoniously and efficiently.
Inner Strength Pilates Studio is no stranger to the incredible benefits Pilates provides, “Pilates re-trains the body. It is gentle, yet creates so much strength and phenomenal results – from rehabilitation, postnatal recovery, toning and weight loss, Pilates offers something for everyone.”
For those looking for a more intense workout, Barre incorporates the precision of Pilates with the positions, moves, grace and technique of Ballet. Fast paced and fast acting, Barre improves cardiovascular fitness, builds muscle, burns fat and redefines the entire body.
Each hour workout provides quick results and is therefore a great choice for anyone who is looking to get fit, but is short on time. “Barre is low-impact but high-energy,” the Inner Strength experts say. “You won’t believe the dramatic results!”
