Yoga Studio Vancouver – Yoga & Pilates Fusion
This class fuses the best of ancient yogic spiritual practices with the core stabilizing and regenerative dynamics of pilates. This yoga and pilates class is a movement system that stretches and strengthens all the major muscle groups, developing a streamlined slenderness rather than bulk. At the same time, it has excellent therapeutic value for calming the mind and spirit.
There is an emphasis on breath throughout the pilates session. The pilates breathing helps increase lung capacity and enhance stamina and endurance. This pilates breath activates the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, helping to protect and strengthen the lower back, tone the belly, trim the waist and assist with core stability. Different Pranayama, yogic breathing techniques are also used; some to energize and invigorate, and others to calm and soothe the nervous system.
