CoreBalance for Beginners

The beginner package is designed to balance and kickstart the core system, retrain breathing and improve posture. The core forms the foundation of healthy movement and strengthens you from the inside out. This programme is based on Hypopressives Training System @hypopressives South Africa.

After the 6 weeks you can continue with the Hypopressives Training System program as we integrate it with other strengthening techniques to layer and strengthen the outer layers of the body. These classes are known as our CoreMaintenance sessions. You can however fall in with ANY of our other classes.

I advise starting this program if you are:

  • New to training
  • Postpartum
  • Pre- and Post- menopausal
  • Wanting to improve posture and breathing to prevent and improve back pain and injuries.
  • Rehab and retrain post-surgery

CoreBalance for Beginners is offered in groups, click here to see when the next beginners group will start or contact us via the online contact form if you’d like to sign up for private or semi-private sessions.

(Private Assessment a prerequisite to join the group)

Our studio offer Pilates mat groups. The groups are small (max 10) and we work on alignment/posture, balance, endurance, strength and flexibility. If you want to join a group we will need to schedule a private session for an assessment to:

  1. Assess your posture and cover possible injuries and contra-indications
  2. To teach you the basic principles of the Pilates technique (alignment and breathing).

Yoga-Vinyasa

Our evening Yoga sessions are based on a gentle Vinyasa flow, Budokon or Animal Flow movement/poses and relaxation/savasana. Vinyasa is a dynamic flow of sun salutation and Vinyasa postures, creating a strong flow, warming up the muscular system. Poses are often held longer to build strength and concentration. Budokon yoga, a fusion of yoga, martial arts and animal locomotion, was created by Cameron Shayne.

In this class we will focus on: alignment, precision and breathing. The choreography, style and strength will vary according to the facilitator, thus always offering a wide variety and challenge.

Zumba

Zumba is an exercise fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Pérez during the 1990s. Zumba is a trademark owned by Zumba Fitness, LLC.

Grooving to the beats of salsa, flamenco, and merengue music feels more like a dance party than a workout, which is exactly what makes Zumba so popular. The Latin-inspired dance workout is one of the most popular group exercise classes in the world.

The high-energy classes are set to upbeat music and feature choreographed dance numbers that you might see in a nightclub. You don’t need to be a great dancer to feel welcome in a Zumba class. With the tag line, “Ditch the Workout, Join the Party,” the classes emphasize moving to the music and having a good time, no rhythm required.
