Body Balance

BODYBALANCE is the yoga, Thai chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centred and calm.  


What will Body Balance do for me?

  • Improve your joint flexibility and range of movement
  • Increase your core strength
  •  Reduce your stress levels
  • Provide a lasting sense of wellbeing and calm
  • Focus your mind and raise your level of consciousness
  • Feel long and strong, centred and calm with BODYBALANCE

Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance.

Like all Les Mills programs, a new BODYBALANCE class is produced every three months with new music and choregraphy.  

Describe a typical class

Each class follows a set sequence of exercise disciplines and is made up of 45 minutes of simple yet challenging exercises followed by ten minutes of relaxation and meditation. Your instructor takes you through the moves and shows you options to suit your fitness level.  

Tai Chi warmup

Easy, flowing moves from the ancient Chinese exercise discipline let you leave your day behind, centre yourself and warm the body.  

Sun salutations

A traditional yoga sequence warms your body more deeply, stretching and strengthening key muscle groups.  

Yoga standing strength

Poses such as warrior pose and triangle pose strengthen and tone the body. 

Balances

Concentration and focus allow your mind and body to meet the challenge of balancing poses.  

Hip openers

Focuses on stretching for greater flexibility and freedom of movement in the hips and lower back. 

Core work

Uses exercises from Pilates and yoga to strengthen core abdominal and back muscles. 

Twists and forward bends

Poses and stretches create suppleness and flexibility in the hamstrings and back. 

Relaxation and meditation

The final ten minutes deliver the mental and psychological benefits of mediation and enhance the effects of the exercise you have just completed.  

What do I need to bring?

You should wear comfortable workout clothes and no shoes. We do the class in bare feet because you need to feel full contact with the floor for the balancing and postural work.  In colder weather, you may also need to bring something warm to wear for the relaxation and meditation sequence.  

How often should I do BODYBALANCE?

You'll feel real benefits from coming to class just once a week, but coming three times a week is ideal.  

When will I notice results?

It usually takes about three classes to understand the feel and structure of the class and moves. You may experience some mild muscle soreness at first, but this will quickly pass and be followed by noticeable strength and flexibility gains and postural movement.  

From the very first class, you should start to experience the stress-reducing and spiritually renewing benefits of BODYBALANCE.
