Pilates - Online

There’s a reason Pilates has become so popular – it works. This unique form of exercise is designed to improve the overall strength and agility of the body. It's a great workout that focuses on abdominal and back strength, spinal alignment and joint mobility to improve posture, relieve pain and prevent injury.

This class will be a mix of classic Pilates mat work Magic Circle and band work incorporated. In some cases, these props are used to increase the challenge and in other cases the props are used to decrease difficulty and enable the participant to develop the technique needed to eventually do the exercise unassisted, safely and correctly reaping the benefits for the whole body.

Yin Yoga - Online

Yin Yoga is known as “the practice of quiet power”. All postures are practiced on the the floor and are generally held for a long period of time, usually three to five minutes. Props are used to support the body so as to release tension along with breath. Students of yin experience an increased ability to calm the body and mind and a dramatic increase of flexibility when practised with consistency. The deep relaxation that is often experienced in Yin is very restorative and can lead to a greater sense of well being.

 

Instructor: Rebekka Cook came to yoga from being a gymnast as a child, flexibility was always part of her life. After being injured in her teens she was searching for something else and she found yoga was the perfect “fit”.  Rebekka believes yoga is something you take with you day to day, providing the tools (such as breath) to help ease emotional states.
Her favourite type of yoga is Yin though that was not always the case. When she first started to practice felt she needed the physical movement because she was not ready to “face herself.” Eventually she found that once she stopped chasing her thoughts she was able to settle into her body and allow herself to relax and accept where she was in the present moment.
