AQUAFIT – on during summer months
The magic of water!

Water is 800x denser than air and is therefore a gentle environment to exercise in.

  1. Cardiovascular – because of its low impact and buoyancy, water allows you to work harder for longer.
  2. Muscle strength – the resistance the water creates allows you to safely do muscle strength exercises.
  3. Flexibility – Ranges of movement in your joints are greater in water and therefore relieve muscle and joint stiffness. All other exercise benefits apply in water e.g lowers Blood pressure, reduces stress and anxiety.
    Most of all – it is a lot of fun!

WAKEUP! WORKOUT!
This hour will get you ready for the day. Set to music, the class will include a warm-up, toning, core work and a good stretch!

YIN YOGA
Yin Yoga is known as a quiet practice. It is mostly floor-based, where participants are in poses for a period of time – 3 to 5 minutes. By softening in a pose or shape, following the breath, and maintaining stillness, connective tissue (tendons and ligaments)is encouraged to release.
This gentle pulling action, at the joints, stimulates the flow of chi through meridian pathways,
nourishing our energetic system and vital organs.
Over time, poses or shapes may deepen, and the practice becomes more meditative.
Stillness, and turning one’s focus inwards requires practise but the benefits are numerous and may include increased lubrication and mobility of the joints, a feeling of openness in the hips, a relaxed body, and a calm, centered mind.
Yin Yoga is an ideal complement for the more dynamic or Yang forms of exercise i.e.
stronger yoga styles, cardio and strengthening classes, even walking.

ZUMBA
Each Zumba class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. A mixture of low-intensity and high intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check. Perfect for everybody and everybody!
