Holistic fitness classes

Keeping fit and healthy is not just about exercise, it's your whole lifestyle. It's your diet, exercise and also your sense of well being. Holistic classes address both your mind and body's fitness - treating you as a whole being. The poses and sequences in Yoga and other holistic classes strengthen, stretch and tone your muscles and improve your balance. A recent study found that the longer you practise yoga the higher your self-esteem is likely to be.

Breathing techniques are an important part of a yoga class, as well as the poses, and there may be a relaxation or meditation period at the end of the class which concentrates on this, as it can be very calming.

If you find you enjoy practising yoga then it is worth investing in your own yoga mat, as it helps your feet grip when you are in postures.
