A regular practice helps to build strength, stamina and stability throughout the whole body system and is often used to manage back pain. Our classes cater for the complete beginner through to athletes wanting to improve core strength and stability to enhance their sporting performance.
Yoga and Pilates Classes in Penistone
Pilates works the body, mind and breath promoting better body awareness, posture and alignment. A regular practice will help to improve strength, mobility and flexibility and it is often used to manage painful joint conditions, especially back pain. Classes are based on the traditional Joseph Pilates method and also incorporate modern movement techniques. The classes will start with finding a connection of mind and body with breath. There will then be a series of postures, which will vary with each class working on a theme or a particular body part. The class will end with a short mindful relaxation to release tension in the body and mind. Pilates equipment will be used to assist with focus and body awareness.

Pilates

Traditional Pilates method and modern movement techniques. This class is suitable for both complete beginners and those who already have a regular Pilates practice. The postures will be adapted to suit individual needs and abilities.

Pilates and Yoga Fusion

This combines the benefits of Pilates and Yoga and is designed to build strength, stamina and mobility. The exercise will be linked together in a flowing sequence, to find a harmonious transition from one movement to the next. This class is beneficial to those who are experiencing areas of stiffness in the body, as the dynamic nature of the movement will help release tension within the Fascia tissue of the body.

Level 1 – Mixed Ability and Complete Beginners

Level 2 – A more challenging class for those with a regular practice, or clients with a reasonable level of fitness. Expect to work hard and work up a sweat. Great for building strength through the whole body.

Movement for Healthy Ageing

This class focuses on gentle mobility for the whole body, finding a Mindful connection through the breath. This class is aimed at those who have limited mobility and function, whether it is due to age, health conditions or a general lack of fitness. This class is about more than just building strength and function in the body. It is about building the confidence to start moving again,where movement has become limited because your body has changed. It is about finding that connection of body and mind and learning to appreciate what your body can do for you right now in life, rather than reflecting on what you used to be able to do. It is about learning to love and respect your body and realise how amazing it is right now in your life.

Level 1 – Very gentle suitable for beginners and those with limited movement
