Yoga is a spiritual practice that aims to transform the body and mind through correct breathing and physical and mental strength-building exercises and postures.
Peak Fitness teaches a specific yoga method involving the synchronization of breathing through a progressive series of postures, stretches and movements. Yoga stimulates intense internal heat within the body that detoxifies muscles and calms the nervous system, and you will leave classes feeling strong, refreshed and with a clear mind. Those that take yoga classes three times a week will see improved flexibility, increased upper-body strength and better trunk flexibility.
Yoga focuses on using posture, stretching and positioning techniques to develop breath control, make the body more supple and flexible, reduce stress and build strength within the core muscles that support the stomach and lower and upper back. Modern yoga is used to alleviate health problems, and millions of people practice yoga to improve their health and overall well-being every day.
If you’re new to yoga and a little nervous about starting you can feel confident that our instructors at Peak Fitness will teach you the correct structure and support that students need to develop proper alignment and movement.
Yoga has been shown to improve mood and anxiety amongst long-term practitioners, and yoga followers often speak of their reduced stress-levels, their ability to concentrate and focus for longer periods, and the opportunity for a period of calm and reflection that a weekly Yoga class brings.
So if you’re looking for an opportunity to de-stress during the week whilst engaging in an activity that will keep you healthy, check out our yoga class today!
