Pilates and Yoga V’s conventional Gym workout

  • Pilates and Yoga works the whole body not just in body parts.
  • Pilates and Yoga begin on the mat; this serves as a roadmap of self-discovery as most of us are totally unaware of our own movement which can lead to injury.
  • Pilates and Yoga will teach effective body awareness through breathing, alignment, centring, concentration and flowing movement. This alleviates fatigue and stress
  • Pilates and Yoga will lengthen and strengthen the muscles evenly increasing joint flexibility and range of motion. A conventional Gym work out (weights) can tend to shorten and thicken your muscles creating bulk.
  • Pilates and Yoga will likely to mimic real life movement so when you are away from class good habits will continue long after.
  • Pilates and Yoga recruits higher number of muscle groups within each exercise so fewer repetitions are required then the normal conventional Gym workout.
  • Pilates works at a reduced effort, but works the entire body at all times, therfore muscle balance, symmetry, and core stability are challenged with every single workout.
  • With fewer repetitions your body becomes more energised and awakened. A conventional Gym workout can leave you exhausted and shaky resulting in needing time out.
  • In Pilates and Yoga you learn to connect and isolate muscle groups to target specific areas and achieve desired results.
  • Pilates and Yoga makes you stronger from the inside resulting in shape on the outside and repair the inside.
  • Using  mindful movement your body learns (and re-learns) how to move at its most optimal level resulting in benefits that last a  long time after a class has finished.
