A motivating blend of yoga, tai chi and Pilates, BODYBALANCE will improve your mind, your body and your life.
WHY DOES BODYBALANCE WORK?
BODYBALANCE™ features a scientifically-backed combination of simple yoga moves, with some elements of Tai Chi and Pilates. The moves are carefully curated to strengthen your entire body and increase flexibility. It’s all set to the perfect music to unwind to – so it’s easy to forget that you’re challenging your body and changing it for the better.
HOW MANY CALORIES DO YOU BURN DURING A CLASS?
During BODYBALANCE the focus is on improving functional core strength, enhancing joint mobility and creating a sense of wellbeing and calm, not calorie-burn. So we suggest you embrace the increased flexibility, improved strength and reduced stress that these classes bring.
WHAT EXERCISES DO YOU DO DURING BODYBALANCE?
BODYBALANCE classes begin with a Tai Chi-inspired warm up, where a focus on breathing sets you up for what is to come – an invigorating series of sun salutations, warrior sequences, hip openers, twists, and some Pilates-inspired core training. The workout closes with a period of relaxation.
DOES BODYBALANCE REALLY GET RESULTS?
Whether you want to build physical or mental strength, BODYBALANCE will make it happen. In a study from Roehampton University in the UK, scientists showed that BODYBALANCE can help reduce body fat, increase back strength, improve flexibility and ease anxiety. It has also been shown to drive significant improvements in balance and gait speed, which is a great indicator of increased vitality.
HOW EXPERIENCED DO YOU NEED TO BE?
Not at all! If you haven’t tried yoga before then BODYBALANCE is a great introduction. Follow your instructor and they will show you all of the appropriate options – don’t worry about what others are doing, just do what feels good for you. When you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to just do the first three or four tracks. And commit to a few sessions from the start, as it can take a few classes to feel comfortable with all of the moves.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU DO IT?
Just one class a week is all it will take for you to start enjoying the benefits of BODYBALANCE. If you’re able to make time for three classes a week you’ll see the physical and mental benefits really shine.
WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR A BODYBALANCE WORKOUT?
You can use a yoga mat if you fancy, but you don’t need one. You also don’t need any shoes. Simply wear comfortable workout clothes, and ideally have something warm to put on during the final relaxation track.
