Yoga First and Wellness’s goal is to create an environment that allows students to focus on themselves, to feel stronger mentally and physically, and to develop self-confidence. The classes are open to everyone. In the 1 hour class we will practice asanas (postures), pranayamas (breath work) and specific core exercises in a positive, energized environment free of schedules, demands, deadlines and stress. Finding yoga, pilates and meditation helped bring balance into my life. By becoming an instructor, I really wanted to share this incredible journey of healing and self-love. Classes bring something new to awaken the body and mind. Students are reminded that it’s very important to listen to one’s body and to push oneself to a healthy place. Proper technique is emphasized with several variations in order to prevent and heal injuries to enjoy a lifelong practice. Taking time at the end in shavasana (corpse pose) is a very important aspect of class. This allows the student to completely calm the mind in a peaceful environment. At the end of class we spend about 10 minutes to centre yourself focusing on breath and positive feelings. A form of meditation. Pilates is a complete and corrective system of exercise created by Joseph Pilates. His studies were particularly influenced to seek balanced equality in mind, body and spirit. Pilates mat-work is the purist form since this was designed 1st long before his apparatus. You can do his specific exercises anywhere. All you need is a mat. Most exercises take place on your back or stomach purposely using gravity in this way to correct unbalance in your body. You will feel how the moves create opposition in your muscles to make them strong and lean. Creating this strong centre will benefit with increase height, better flexibility, increase brain function, improve co-ordination with control, reduce back pain, decrease illness and build inner confidence. Classes begin with breath work, some light low impact cardio to warm up, mat core work and stretching with breath work to finish.
