Pilates involves a series of movements focusing on improving core strength, posture, balance and flexibility. Not only are you engaging your body but you are also relying on your mind-muscle connection. Pilates is a great compliment to other forms of exercise. The deep focus on the muscles through stretching and lengthening can reduce the chance of you injuring yourself during other workouts. Every exercise in pilates has a specific purpose in strengthening and toning your body. Get started with Claudia’s Booty Burn Pilates workout.
Tai Chi is a continual slow-motion, low impact exercise that incorporates deep breathing and brings focus to sensations throughout the body. Because of the relaxed and gentle nature of Tai Chi, it can easily be adapted to all types of people and is suitable for all fitness levels. Throughout the practice, the circular motion of the movements means your muscles, joints and connective tissue remain relaxed. It is perfect to practice in the morning as it will energise you for the day ahead. Not only this, but Tai Chi helps to boost your immune system by quietening the nervous system’s response to stress via its collective effects of exercise, relaxation and meditation. It can also relieve exisiting pain in the body and improve cardiovascular health through deep breathing to lower blood pressure.
