Have you tended to shy away from Yoga or Pilates because you think it’s for the super bendy? Or it may be too slow going? Then Yogalates might be just for you!
Yogalates was originally created for every person as a safe exercise alternative that combined the stress relieving benefits of Yoga with the body sculpting gains from Pilates – and it has been gaining in popularity since it’s introduction in the early nineties. Classes are always adapted to suit all levels of ability and age, from the complete beginner who has never exercised through to those with years of Yoga and Pilates beneath their belts, depending on who is present in the session.
Each pose or exercise is taught using awareness of alignment of the body to protect and strengthen the spine and progresses from a preparation stage to increasing the load, effort, and dynamics so that everyone has an option to suit their body or for how strongly they want to work. If a particular pose is not suitable to an individual then an alternative is given. In each class the participants are encouraged to apply the philosophical aspects of Yoga including predominantly breath work so that they don’t force their body, but rather work with the awareness and breath to ensure that the practice is satisfying and safe.
So, depending on whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced practitioner of Yoga or Pilates; whether you like your exercise regime to be of a slower or faster pace Yoga in Mallorca can be both a relaxing stress relieving experience or a fast paced cardio busting session – personalized and adapted to be suitable for you and your goals.
