What can Yogalates offer me?

The origins of Yoga date back to around 3000BC India. In the 21st century it is more popular than ever and has developed into many specific styles; however at the heart of each approach is the emphasis of creating union with oneself. Yoga can enhance strength, stamina, flexibility, balance and mental clarity. Through developing a conscious awareness of the body, mind, breath and life force (prana) it has the ability to be deeply relaxing and health enhancing. Pilates was founded by the late German born Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. He initially combined yoga and body building techniques to overcome childhood sickness. After regaining full health he continued to develop and refine his ideas later discovering that by using the stabilising muscles (namely the deep abdominals) and resistance work (initially through springs attached to hospital beds) he was able to successfully assist those recovering from injury and illness. Pilates continues to flourish and grow augmenting sporting activities, assisting in injury rehabilitation and supports those with back problems through re-educating the body’s postural muscles to create a very safe and strong foundation for movement.

A Supple Fitness Yogalates session will blend exercises and poses (asana) to cultivate strength, stamina, stability and flexibility with particular attention paid to building tone in the deeper postural “core” muscles. These protect the spine against injury, support the internal organs and foster pelvic and spinal awareness to promote good posture. Equipment such as blocks, resistance bands (which replicate the resistance training of the Pilates machines), weights, fit balls and foam rollers may also be utilised to further enhance strength and balance.
