What is the course about?

This course offers an introduction to both Yoga and Pilates. Yoga asana (postures) help to stretch, strengthen and energise the body. Pilates exercises help to tone core muscles (back and abdomen), align the spine, support upright posture, and structure movement. During this course Yoga and Pilates practices of gradually increasing intensity are interwoven with each other in every lesson. Classes are designed so that both disciplines complement one another. Sessions close with a guided relaxation to help you leave feeling fully refreshed and calm.
