What are the benefits?

Clinical Pilates is a form of therapeutic exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. In the contemporary world, Clinical Pilates is often used in conjunction with physiotherapy as a means of treating a variety of injuries, particularly those of the neck and back.

Yoga also caters to the body’s well-being as well as the minds. It improves cardiovascular health as well as chronic neck and back pain. Moreover, yoga staves off stress and anxiety by clearing your brain and sharpening it. It helps a person avoid and in some cases, get rid of depression.

The Yoga and Pilates classes will help you in pertaining self-control, self-perception, well-being, body awareness, balance, mind-body, strengthening and reflexivity.
