Pilates and Restorative Yoga

Pilates

Mat Pilates is a low impact exercise practice that can help to improve your strength, tone, flexibility, alignment, core and posture. Pilates can transform not only the body but also the mind by increasing your sense of body/mind connection through movement awareness and the pilates breath technique.

“Self-confidence, poise, consciousness of possessing the power to accomplish our desires, with renewed lively interest in life are the natural results of the practice of pilates.”

Joseph Pilates

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is a practice to help you slow down in today’s busy world. The purpose of restorative yoga is to gently guide you out of ‘fight or flight’ and into the ‘rest and digest’ peaceful state where the body begins to naturally heal itself. You will be still for the majority of the time resting in fully supported passive stretches that encourage your body and mind to restore.

“Restorative yoga allows for the possibility to recalibrate our awareness so that stillness, silence and space become a tonic for living and experiencing a meaningful and rich life.”
