Pilates was created by German anatomist Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. It uses very specific exercises that target different areas of the body to improve strength, flexibility and posture. The secret to Pilates is core strength, and when you are able to master this, you can elongate and strengthen your muscles for better toning and balance. This form of exercise is ideal for anyone recovering from injuries, or people with chronic pain and in need of rehabilitation. Seniors are also welcome since this is a very low impact form of exercise that involves lying down, sitting or standing. The bar may be used occasionally.
Join our Pilates classes in Dannevirke to rejuvenate and rebuild your musculoskeletal system, and just for an overall revitalising, conditioning workout. Our instructor Sarah Gibbs is certified and experienced in coaching people of all ages and all fitness levels in Pilates. However, it is advisable to speak to your doctor first if you are concerned about injuries or if you are pregnant.
Originating in the exotic lands of India, Yoga is a physical practice that also involves meditation. In this way, it trains the body, mind and spirit to work together in perfect alignment. It is a unique way to restore and massage the internal organs. Combining gentle stretches with breathing exercises and other techniques, Yoga is the perfect way to engage the body and feel relaxed yet energised after each session.
Feel more anchored, find your balance and detox with our Yoga classes at Activate Gym in Dannevirke. You can also ease back pain, maintain toned muscles and practice Yoga safely during pregnancy. Speak to your health practitioner or our certified Yoga instructor if you have any concerns.
