Once a week come along and be guided through full-body stretch exercises to release tense muscle groups, let go of stress, recharge and relax.
Stretching time. Sadly, it's often the activity we skip out on the most, whether it's after a workout or a walk. Guilty? This is your opportunity to spend an hour releasing tension, letting go of stress and recharging and relaxing.
If you're constantly feeling fatigued and stressed, it may be because of a lack of stretching. Tight muscles cause soreness and knots and discomfort, which plays a major part in our stress levels.
Stretching is also a great way of combatting the effects of ageing. Whilst it won't fight wrinkles, it will help our bodies feel and act younger. Improved mobility, due to more lengthened and supple muscle fibres, allows out body to stay in shape for longer. The more we care for our muscles, the longer we can continue to work out and reap the health benefits of exercise.
Who should attend?
Anyone who is not necessarily wanting to attend a yoga or pilates class, but just wants to dedicate some time to stretching. This class is appropriate for all age groups from young adults through to seniors, couch potatoes through to those who work out but neglect to stretch.
What to bring
A yoga mat or blanket for the floor.
