Yogalates – Introduction
Solomon Yogalates™, developed by Louise Solomon in Australia, is an exercise system which fuses the best of ancient yogic practice with the core stabilising, functional, and regenerative dynamics of Pilates. It is a movement system that stretches and strengthens all the major muscle groups developing a streamlined slenderness rather than bulk. At the same time it has excellent therapeutic value for calming the mind and spirit.
Yogalates is ideal for those needing to strengthen their backs, those suffering from arthritis or osteoporosis as well as post natal women. It is excellent for developing general tone and fitness in the body while creating a sense of inner calm, relaxation and overall wellbeing.
Particular attention is paid to building strength and endurance in the body’s core postural muscles promoting “core stability” and good posture.
The programs I have created are mainly based on Solomon Yogalates™. They are aimed at beginners as well as intermediate students – providing pose/exercise variations for both.
Although Yogalates is a safe practice, it is always advisable to contact your doctor first before starting any new exercise program.
I hope you enjoy the programs!
Have a great day – Namaste!
