Pilates & Yoga
Pilates is a form of body conditioning exercise originally developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century as a method of injury recovery for dancers, that has become a widely practiced and beneficial movement activity suitable for just about everyone!
The principles that guide the Pilates method include concentration on each movement, use of the abdomen and low back muscles, flowing, precise movement patterns and controlled breathing.
We focus on postural correction and reducing the risk of injury through introducing healthy movement patterns, working on mobility and mind-body integration.
In a Pilates session at EDP you can expect to receive a balanced, whole-body workout that focuses on re-balancing the body. Through a combination of strengthening weak areas and releasing tight areas the body will be tuned up to create healthy movement, strong joints and healthy posture.
Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterised by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath.
