Through practicing yoga, one can hope to achieve the integration of body, mind and spirit. Rather than being about attempting difficult poses and tying the body in a knot, yoga is the practice of exercise, breathing and meditation. With regular yoga practice improved health can be achieved as the exercises improve circulation and strengthen the respiratory system.
FunFit’s yoga teachers design classes specifically for the age group they are teaching. For younger students, many fun games are included in the session to maintain their attention as it is more difficult for children to quieten the body and the mind. It is amazing to see just how calm participant’s energy levels are throughout and after a FunFit yoga class. This makes for a fun and accessible class for all ages.
Developed in the 1920’s and increasingly popular today, the pilates method aims to create a balance in the body and involves a series of exercises derived from callisthenics, ballet and yoga. During a pilates session, different exercises are performed in repetitions of 5-10 with a concentration on breathing and abdominal control. Core stability is essential for the body as it helps our posture, prevents injury and is beneficial to all sporting activities we are involved in.
If it’s core stability you need to develop, pilates is the activity for you! Students leave this class with a feeling of satisfaction at having completed a thorough but not overwhelming training session.
