The following props are recommended for this class; - Pair of yoga blocks/bricks - Pair of weights - I recommend beginners start light with 0.5 kg and those who are more proficient can go up to 2 or 3kg - Pilates Mini Ball - Long length resistance/theraband - Yoga Strap The Yogalates Method was created by Louise Solomon, a Yoga advocate until she badly injured herself in a Yoga class. She then discovered Pilates; benefitting from its more functional approach, Pilates immensely helped her to recover. However, Louise missed the more calming, zen aspects of yoga. And so she created the Yogalates Method. A regular Yogalates session will include 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. Yogalates is excellent for developing body tone and fitness, while also encouraging a connection with the self to soothe the nervous system, release stress, aid relaxation and instilling inner calm and overall wellbeing. Additionally it is suitable for all ages and is a very safe and accessible method making it ideal for sufferers of back pain, arthritis, and osteoporosis and postnatal women as options are provided dependant on your capabilities.
