BORED with your lunchtime routine? Why not sign up with Pilates ABC for classes at the YMCA on Mondays and Tuesdays run by Alyth Yealland?
Pilates is an excellent, enjoyable way to release tension and stress built up over the week, leaving you refreshed to face the rest of the day, providing great benefits to your body including helping joint- and backache.
Joseph Pilates based Pilates on elements of “yoga, gymnastics, skiing, self-defence, drama, dance, circus training and weight training….giving….the perfect balance of strength and flexibility.”
Recommended by many medical practitioners, Pilates, with its method of balanced exercises is a fun workout after a hard day’s work whether you’ve been gardening, cycling, rowing, running, dog walking (especially those that pull on the lead!), working in an office or driving all day.
Alyth will teach you the three main principles: how to improve your postural alignment, deep breathing to help your movement and stability in and out of class, and how to use your inner core muscles to give you that strong centre for movement and stability inside and create a poised new you.
