Stretching in Port Moody with Yogalates

The summer is almost here. It’s the time when the weather and your mood are best fit for exercising and taking a better care of yourself. With increased exercise comes increased muscle pain and fatigue. A great way to stretch your muscles is to join a yogalates class. Yogalates is a fun way to re-energize your body and rejuvenate your muscles. The exercises involved are also great as a way to clear your mind after a long day.

I have been participating in a yogalates class this spring and I feel that the yoga and Pilates mix is an excellent way to improve flexibility and energize your body. The feeling of stretching every one of the muscles in my body after each class leaves me feeling full of energy and completely relaxed. The amount of focus the instructor places on breath control is not unusual for a yoga class. However, the class made me realize how much strength I lacked in my upper body. The frequent exercising strengthened my muscles and I felt stronger than I had ever felt before.

The best part about this class is that the instructor that runs the program offers different levels of difficulty for each exercise. This variety of difficulty allows you to progress and build up muscle flexibility and strength at your own pace and only do what you are really truly capable of.

In all, I have found that the class is worth the time and money spent. The variety of movements and actions will not only stretch and heal the muscles that are frequently used and never truly given the time to relax; but the exercises done in the class work the muscles that we may not always be aware of due to the often limited amount of movements we do in our day to day lives. The classes are very unique, and is currently offered only at Port Moody Rec Centre and Heritage Mountain Community Centre. Each session combines the physical aspect of Pilates and the relaxation of the body and mind in yoga. In the summer yogalates is offered on Heritage Mountain on Mondays from 7:00-8:00pm. You can register for classes by phone, in person or online.
