Yoga and Pilates in Mt. Dora
If you are looking for a great way to get fit and enjoy some relaxation, then Gold’s Gym Mt. Dora in Florida has just the thing for you. Our yoga and Pilates group classes offer ways to improve your body and mind as you learn techniques to stretch your muscles, calm your nerves, and create a great sense of well-being that goes beyond regular exercises.
Our group yoga classes teach you how to use breathing and movement to increase strength and flexibility for your body, and focus and concentration for your mind. Yoga practice is a great way to reduce muscle tightness, especially for those days when you might have overdone it with more high-intensity group fitness classes or individual training. It’s a terrific way to relieve stress as well, in a non-judgmental setting where everyone’s goal is the same — to train body and mind to reach a stronger, calmer state. The goal of our group yoga classes is to simply have fun and enjoy learning new ways to work your muscles in a quiet, serene atmosphere. Our yoga instructors are there to help you learn and hold the postures that compose yoga, and they are always ready to help you alter those poses to meet the needs and initial restrictions of your body. As you continue to take our yoga classes, your flexibility will increase and you fill find the poses easier, but always just as fulfilling.
Pilates group fitness classes take yoga techniques a few steps further. Based on the teachings of founder Joseph Pilates, this mat-based class incorporates fewer standing poses than traditional yoga. Most of the work will be done sitting, lying down on the mat, or kneeling. Resistance is also introduced, in the form of bands and other weight resistance tools that our Pilates classes will teach you how to use. Pilates is a slightly harder workout for your body, partially because of the resistance and also because of slightly different breathing techniques designed to increase core strength. Some of the other health benefits of this group exercise class include increased concentration, better alignment of your spine — something you will soon discover you are incorporating into your everyday life — coordination, balance, and flexibility. Pilates classes also encourage longer, lean muscles as opposed to the bulkier body shape that weight training can create.
If some of your exercise goals include increasing flexibility and powering your mind as well as your body, the Yoga and Pilates group exercise classes at Gold’s Gym in Mt. Dora could be the very option you have been searching for. Come try out a class today.
