Marrying up the principles of yoga and pilates for a perfect blend of the two, ending in relaxation.

ZUMBA - IN-PERSON Tuesday 1.30pm (Zumba Gold), IN-PERSON Wednesday evening 7pm On demand Zumba videos here
A dance class of world music, Latin grooves and fitness moves. No judgement here as I really don't claim to be a good dancer but I love to try and if you feel the same, then you're welcome to join me - hey if you even want to freestyle it because the brain and body stop aren't working as a team - OKAY!! the only rules are to just wiggle and giggle!
Here's a little bit on Zumba fitness.
What is Zumba? “isn’t it just, like, a bunch of dancing?”
Yes, sort of and no.at the same time!
A dance class of world music, Latin grooves and fitness moves.
The Zumba motto is “Ditch the workout—Join the party!” Although it sounds like it’s just a bit of fun (and it is), it is actually an incredible workout and it can provide an enormous amount of benefits to your wellbeing.
'I haven't smiled or laughed at myself like that in ages!! so much fun' Miss Lang
Still, Zumba is kind of hard to define. Is it a dance party? Is it an actual workout?
Zumba, a type of dance fitness that’s been around since the 1990s, is the backbone of the dance fitness craze—it incorporates a variety of Latin-inspired dance moves and music to promote a healthy heart, a healthy dose of aerobic activity, and a fun and uplifting, exciting way to build and tone muscle, improve cardio, help mobility and coordination and decrease stress.
That really did feel like a disco in my living room' JC
Feeling a bit silly (At First)
You might feel a bit silly at first. I did and still do sometimes!! Why? Because there’s no way (unless you have a pretty solid dance background) that you’re going to master the choreography right away. And you know what? No one else is, either. I’m not a good dancer myself. That’s kind of the beauty of it. All you need for this type of class is an open mind and a little flexibility when it comes to feeling silly—I promise you, it’s worth it in the end. And besides, after a few songs, you’ll start recognising repeated steps and you’ll get into the groove of it. Dance like nobody's watching!
Zumba Gold is a little bit slower and lower impact but still plenty of dancing, laughing and sweating to be had!
'You're a lovely mover Vernette, were you a dancer?? I'm impressed, it was great!' Mrs G (NB:must be my enthusiasm!! :-)

ON HOLD
High Intensity Interval training (HIIT) 'Yoga Blitz'
Yoga Blitz - Burn your asana off!Yoga Blitz is a High Intensity Interval training (HIIT) programme I've put together, that works on the proven fitness technique of short, high intensity bursts, working on 30/20/10 second principle using a combination of yoga, pilates and tabata fitness moves to maximise fat loss and calorie burn in a short space of time. It really is for those looking to build strength, endurance, loose weight and have more of a cardio type of workout, than that offered by yoga alone. Some of it involves jumping or running on spot moves but in short bursts, rather than anything like running over a long period of time, so in all, much safer on the joints, but it gives the same level of workout for those with limited time available and continues to burn calories after the workout has finished, known as the 'afterburn' effect. This HIIT programmed is inspired by yoga, rather than being yoga itself, however, the same yogic intention, application and moves are there, but just in a different way. Yoga purists wont like it, because it's NOT yoga! and that's true - I'm not hiding that fact - it's a workout, but more mindful of a mindful one! Email me to register your interest and sign up for the class. (30minutes HIIT and 30minutes cool down yoga). ON HOLD
