YOGA AT PILATES DYNAMICS - WHAT TYPES OF YOGA DO WE OFFER?

One of the benefits of Yoga At Pilates Dynamics is that you can choose a yoga style that's tailored to your lifestyle, such as:

 

1. Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is a flowing style of (pose) practice that will revitalize you from head to toe.  Follow your breath into movement to find balance between ease and effort, heating and cooling, being active and passive, with attention to physical alignment and mental awareness.

Hatha Yoga classes tend to focus on one pose at a time with a rest in between, which results in a slower paced type of movement.

 

2. Vinyasa yoga

Vinyasa is also called flow because of the smooth way in which the poses run together.  It is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga.  You can expect to move – sometimes quite vigorously – from pose to pose.

Vinyasa Flow refers to the way this style keeps you moving from asana to asana, linking each pose to an inhale and an exhale.  Instructors keep the flow of movements smooth and continuous, which can help you stay present and focused on movement during the session.

Vinyasa has a lot in common with Ashtanga yoga, which also links continuous sequence through the breath.  However, Vinyasa is a lot more flexible and Instructors are totally fee to mix up the order of the poses, or to throw in something new and unexpected.  This approach means that you will never fall into a slump by having to repeat the same routine over and over.

 

3. Yin yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of modern yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time.  If you are a beginner, the poses may be held from 45 seconds to about 2 minutes.  In more advanced classes, the poses might be held for about 45 minutes or longer.

The aim of Yin Yoga is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility by applying moderate stress to the tendons, fascia, and ligaments.  Holding the poses for longer also brings about an awareness of inner silence and therefore a more meditative approach for relaxation purposes.

 

WHAT IF I AM A BEGINNER? 

If you're a yoga beginner, fear not.  Due to the small classes, the instructor will focus on you and keep the pace and postures comfortable and correct you as you go – without detracting from the other clients who have been around for a while.  No matter your fitness level, fat percentage, or health history, you will be able to fit into the class.

 

WILL YOGA TEACH ME STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY TRAINING?

Yoga focuses on both strength and flexibility.  The postures are meant to strengthen your body from the inside out, so you don’t just look good, you feel good, too.  Yoga poses are will reinforce the muscles around the spine, which is the core from where everything else operates. When the core is working properly, posture is improved, which will alleviate shoulder, back & neck, and hip pain.  Most poses are held for a good number of breaths which challenges the muscles by holding the position without giving up.  Stretching and holding postures will also cause muscles to lengthen and strengthen, which will give the body a toned but leaner look.

Isometric exercises are one of the best ways to build core strength. Isometric means holding a position without moving.  An example of a well-known exercise which is an isometric exercise is the plank.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF YOGA? 

  • Increased endurance, strength, and flexibility.
  • Mental endurance and physical stamina due to the holding of postures for extended breaths.
  • Arm and shoulder strength is increased through the use of own body weight for resistance.
  • Back muscles like Lats and traps, amongst others will support the spine better than before.
  • Abdominals and obliques are refined and toned as a result of building core strength.
  • Posture will start to improve and correct itself over time.
  • Hip flexors which are commonly a problem due to too much sitting, are stretched and strengthened.
  • Glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves are also strengthened.

 

No matter whether you have aches and pains or whether you just want to improve your fitness levels, yoga's ability to build muscle will have an undeniable positive effect on the total body.
