THE BENEFITS

I’ve undertaken specialised post graduate training in Gentle Somatic Yoga and Mat Pilates to be able to offer you this complementary blend of therapeutic yoga and Pilates for total body conditioning and 

 

-Muscle tension + stiff joints

-Poor range of movement + prone to injury

-Hyper-mobility

-Lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis

-Imbalances in strength between the front, back and sides of the body

PILATES + OSTEOPOROSIS

Certain matwork exercises can be helpful especially the buttock exercises as they help to strengthen the hip bones. Any exercises which help improve core stability and balance will also help to prevent falls and the risk of fracture

There are some exercises though that you shouldn’t do if you have severe Osteoporosis or a high risk of a spinal fracture. It’s always worth attending a Pilates class with an instructor who is aware of those issues  

REFLUX

If you suffer from reflux pop a head cushion behind your head in class

 

GENTLE SOMATIC YOGA®

Embrace the benefits of releasing muscle tension to improve posture and feel greater comfort and ease in your activities of daily living  

MAT PILATES

A blend of yoga and Pilates to lengthen, strengthen, tone and build supportive inner strength for the body

 

Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness - JOSEPH PILATES 

Joseph Pilates and Thomas Hanna had a lot in common, with both being driven to help us age well, with less stiffness, more mobility, flexibility, balance and control. Thomas Hanna, who developed Hanna Somatics, created an intelligent movement practice of slow, gentle, conscious movements to encourage short, tight muscles to release + re-set. This relieved mild pain associated with muscle tension + improved posture. Better posture not only makes us stand taller, look younger and feel more confident, but also takes the strain off the body's joints and soft tissues

 

​​Joseph Pilates believed that as the body ages, poor posture and underdeveloped muscles could restrict daily movement and life. His interest was in toning the stabilisers of the body to relieve back pain, improve posture and make movement feel freer; core muscles also provide a stable base for the rest of the body to move with more control, strength, fluidity and ease

You are only as young as your spine is flexible - JOSEPH PILATES

Yoga + Pilates - a pro-aging movement class

Relieve some of the common signs of aging such as stiffness, mild to moderate muscle and joint pain, reduced range of movement and postural changes in this class

With regular practice, you may find your everyday movements and hobbies feel more enjoyable and efficient, with improved function so walking, running, playing and sleeping feel more comfortable

​REDUCE LIKELIHOOD OF INJURY

​In my Gentle Somatic Yoga classes, we've focussed on melting away layers of tension. This blend of practices offers further additional benefits through toning the core muscles of the body

 

Feel longer, leaner, taller, stronger and empowered, reducing the likelihood of injury due to posture improvements + greater inner strength and tone
