Our yoga core class is a fun way to burn calories and get into shape the more you go the stronger you become.
Each class begins with a warm-up period, and then goes into aerobic stepping for about 30 minutes followed by resistance training and dynamic yoga stretching to strengthen your core muscles. The music is exciting and has a driving beat. The class is upbeat, and there is plenty of laughing and sweating — the hour goes by really fast!
Here's some reasons why Yoga Core is such a great choice:
Interval training. Alternating movements to music in segments maximizes body toning and sculpting.
Calorie burning. In addition to benefiting your heart and lungs, this type of aerobic exercise can help you burn excess calories.
Core muscles. We also concentrate on the muscles of the abdomen, back, buttocks, and upper legs, which are your core muscles. These are the most important muscles for spine stability and overall aerobic fitness. Again this activates calorie burning that continues on well after the class has finished.
Tips to help maximise the benefits;
As with any exercise you should always consult your doctor if you have any questions about class make contact.
- Be comfortable. Dress comfortably and make sure to have good support for your feet. The lateral movement of stepping can put stress on feet and ankles.
- Bring water with you. It’s important to stay well hydrated during a one-hour class.
This class is fun and social the more you go the more you enjoy yoga!
