Pilates

Pilates challenges and strengthens the muscles of the core which are used to maintain correct spinal alignment while you breathe and move during the day. Pilates creates an advanced understanding of posture and alignment by developing your core muscle awareness through relaxed normal breathing patterns. Building this awareness helps you more effectively utilise your core muscles to support your spine and prevent pain and injury during everyday actions such as standing for long periods, lifting and bending or even sitting at a work desk for long hours. Improved use and awareness of your core muscles will also deliver significant benefits in all areas of sport and fitness.

All Pilates Classes conducted at East Gosford Yoga & Pilates are mat based and closely supervised in small and friendly groups.

Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga classes fall under the general Hatha Yoga banner, and are designed to bring balance to the body. As Vinyasa means ‘flow’, each class moves from one pose (asana) to the next with specific focus placed on the breath. This movement and focus creates heat in the body, assisting circulation and improving flexibility. Yoga asanas also build strength throughout the entire body. Vinyasa Yoga classes are inspired by the ancient discipline of yoga but implement a safe and practical approach to teaching the postures to suit modern day lifestyles.
