How to feel and stay young for longer

The answer is exercise and what you eat. I have been physically active most of my life now, age 58. Still, I feel so much younger physically feeling 35 It is a fact that exercising and challenging yourself with a variety of exercise will give your body the pass to a more extended fitter lifestyle.

Pilates

Suitable for beginners and people with more experience. If you have any specific injury, aches, or pain, please speak to the tutor to modify and adapt the exercise safely.

THE CLASS

Prepare and Focus yourself ready for the physically and mentally, not to confuse it with connecting your body and mind in a fixed state of blissfulness. No.! Along the way, we will balance and flow with coordination as if it is 2nd nature, but it’s not like that,! You will see, and keep the best till last?

Dawn has broken to awaken that part of you that went on holiday, yes you got it, the abdominal and the back muscles, the chest muscles not to forget the shoulders, upper back, neck, etc. etc. You will allow time for your body to change your habitual (routine) habits, patterns to establish more efficient movement and increased suppleness.

YOU WILL LEARN

The original Joseph Pilates classical exercises.

Pilates principle

  • Breathing
  • Control
  • Flow
  • Concentration
PILATES IS A SYSTEM

The Pilates system will allow you to perform exercises specifically designed to promote your bodies alignment, strength and flexibility. You will be focused on the abdominal muscles and the use of breath to support spinal alignment and improve muscular efficiency.

Chronic conditions are best not dealt with in a general level group class.

The focus of the Pilates class

Every movement in pilates has a purpose. Every instruction is vitally important to success. To leave out any detail is to forsake the intrinsic value of the exercise.

Your focus is to do one precise and perfect movement, rather than many half-hearted ones. Eventually, your precision becomes second nature and carries over into your everyday life as grace and economy of movement as birds with wings do.

Class Description


Clinical Pilates

Back pain general with Pilates: 

General back pain a vast area of complication, and specific exercises should not do while in discomfort, or an ongoing pack issue. For example, scoliosis, spine twist is to be avoided when you twist your body right to the left, taking the vertebrae to rotate more into the problematic area of the curvature.

If you have general back pain, this class is excellent for you in every way.

Here’s my acquaintance with back pain; I’m going to expand that to all body pain. It’s unwanted and peas you off! It’s so painful and frustrating not to forget depressing, I have suffered broken bones, lower back pain, and that’s during my dance career.

Prevention is better than cure  The Instructor Louie.

My experience with back pain, alternative treatments such as Pilates is becoming increasingly popular to help prevent and manage pain. Pilates improves the mobility of the spine. Focusing on mobility movement, learning how to improve the stability of the abdominal and back muscles, works to prevent low back joint stiffness and muscle tightness.

 

Fitness fusion

Working with lightweights, resistance bands, and body weight, this promotes healthy Bones and the legs bums and tums approach boosting calories to burning away. The workout will tone, and resistance training will work the butt, legs, torso, and arms to sculpt muscles and elongate the muscles of your body.

Joeseph Pilates Original repertoire is used to this day and is for us as Pilates Instructors to become creative with variations.

  • Variations are when some part or mechanics of original exercise have bee altered.
  • Modifications exercise broken down to teach any person through their journey with fitness.

Modifications started when Pilates was introduced to the mainstream like gyms and clubs where

teaching the general public every exercise needed to be simplified to make safe and effective

Good form or technique can look different depending on the individual and the situation–it’s

dependent upon the individual’s needs and limitations.

There are two essential characteristics of good form that run through all types of movement:

  1. It must minimise the chances of injury for the individual practising the movement.
  2. It must employ efficient body mechanics to maximise the available strength and energy of the action in question.
  3. When you move with proper form or technique, your body works together as one unit, rather than as a collection of individual parts.

The understanding of technique is a combination of body mobility and stability in the respective appropriate areas. If everything is floppy, your form will look weak, and if everything is rigid and stiff looking, your movement will be restricted.

Ballet Barre Bar fusion

No Ballet or dance experience needed.
Louie a former dancer in classical ballet 15 years and Malaysian traditional touring Europe ten years and studied Thai Traditional dance as well as a teaching Pilates Masterclasses in Thailand for another three years.

Do I need a bar? No! Classes are a hybrid workout class from ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, and world folk dance form Thailand  Malaysia and strength training. Most classes incorporate a Ballet barre and use classic dance moves such as plies, alongside static stretches. Barre also focuses on high reps of small range movements.

Equation of momentum

Good form or technique is the ability to pause with control at any given time during the performance of the movement or exercise.

Rather than moving with momentum, move with control. Moving with the intention and power will funnel the stress to the appropriate area of the body in motion.

An untrained eye can still see the difference.

Untrained observers can tell someone is performing an exercise with proper technique or form to someone else. It looks better, and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, even to an inexperienced eye.

Same as in dance and other physical performance art, is judged by proper alignment and the “lines” of the performer. The body angles and steady execution are merely aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

 

Men’s Fitness           

Men’s fitness is a dynamic fast pass cardiovascular workout with upper body strength, as well as abdominal strength adding variations to help confuse the muscles which will recruit more muscle fibres which in return build muscles mass. Combining general exercises with raising the heart rate and taking you into a cardiovascular level with HIIT, Tabata. Tabata is Scientifically proven to keep losing calories up to four hours after the class

 

Stay young for longer.

The answer is fitness. It is a fact that exercising and challenging yourself with a variety of exercise will give your body the pass to a more extended fitter lifestyle.

“Embrace your life, give your body the best you can give.”

The results

Regularly exercising with the exercise ball.

Helps you maintain the natural curve of your spine, which allows you to keep from

arching your back and protect the spine.

Tabata

Here is some good news for a shorter workout. A new study shows that Tabata lives up to its reputation as a 4-minute workout.

The study used participants to perform twenty seconds of bodyweight doing the squat, star Jumps. Rest for ten seconds. And repeated this sequence eight times for a total of 4 minutes. They end up blasting away on an average of 13.5 calories per minute.

“This particular style of interval training Tabata has profound effects even on short-term post-exercise metabolism. You need to do five times the amount of physical cardiovascular exercise to burn the same number of calories you can do in four-minute with Tabata.

Tabata is the intensity.

Tabata is not four minutes of brisk walking. You better going all-out to reap these excellent benefits, our metabolic rate needs to be very high with interval training just in four minutes.

Make sure you are warmed up thoroughly and prepared for the intense workout, to use explosive movements and a lot of body mass to reach maximum effort level necessary.
