Why choose to do Pilates or Yoga?
Mardyke Arena UCC hosts a wide range of Yoga & Pilates courses. Adding progressive workouts to your fitness routine can increase your strength and flexibility and can greatly improve your overall core stability.
Using controlled and fluid movements Pilates develops the body uniformly. It corrects posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit. Pilates’ main focus is on core strength and stability however, you can expect to see strength gains in your arms and legs. Pilates exercises used to activate core often rely on the movement of our extremities. By controlling these movements we also develop strength gains through out the body.
Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic and clearly structured yoga practice which connects the movement of the body with the flow of the breath. Ashtanga yoga promotes strength, flexibility, stamina and efficient postural alignment as well as stress release and well-being. Each class includes breath work, sun salutations, a series of standing and seated poses, a mindful introduction to backbends and inversions and relaxation. The teacher demonstrates the poses, explains the technique and offers modifications as required, which makes the course ideal for those who wish to progress at their own pace.
