Yogilates is a modern form of fitness training that combines exercises from pilates with yoga postures and movements. It combines the benefits of both practices.
Yogilates is a holistic practice which brings in connection mind, body and breath. It improves overall health by purifying the body.
The physical asana practice will help improve flexibility, breathing capacity and building strength through movement. It will also help with balance and concentration. While Pilates exercises will help build a strong core and prepare the body effectively to perform and hold the yoga postures safely. The Pilates exercises also help to build strength for yoga transitions. It gives the stability that will allow flowing with ease.
Typically, Yogilates classes will be structured like many yoga classes. They begin with a warmup, with gentler floor-based movements, including mat Pilates exercises, progressing into strength and stretching work, and then more challenging standing postures and flow. They may incorporate meditation if required.
Always ending with a 10 mn of total relaxation of the body, leading to the complete release of muscles, skin and nervous system where the body is completely passive but where the mind stays alert and present. A state of interior calm and peace is achieved, and an access to your inner space becomes possible.
At your place, you can get a private Yogilates class, which will focus on your individual needs, respecting your injuries, according to your personal physical background.
