BodyArt is an intense, holistic, functional, whole body, transformative workout that combines strength, flexibility, cardio and breath work.
It is based on the Eastern principles of Yin and Yang and the 5 elements which are linked to different energies. The element ‘Earth’ is linked to rising energy, which translates as the mobilisation of the entire spine during the training.
‘Wood’, or the expanding energy, is the warm up and prepares the body internally for hardcore training.
‘Fire’ and its circulating energy is the main training. As it is the energy of circulation you are now training your heart as well, and your entire cardiovascular system.
With ‘Metal’, the descending energy, comes stabilisation.
We are left with ‘Water’, the quiet energy, involving breathing techniques and Tai Chi BodyArt training creates a dynamic balance between activity and passivity, tension and release. It effects and balances each participant, in his or her individual needs while experiencing a vigorous yet energising physical regiment.
Classes consist of exercises unique to BodyArt as well movements inspired by yoga, Pilates, dance, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, physical therapy and classical conditioning. The result is a familiar and transformative experience for participants of all ages and fitness levels.
Awarded "Best International Concept", BodyArt is being hailed as the most progressive and effective fitness modality in the world.
