Yogilates combines two of the hottest exercise techniques – Hatha yoga and Pilates – in a single body development technique that provides strength, grace, focus and flexibility – faster than when either discipline is performed separately.
Yogilates was created by Jonathan Urla in 1997 and is now a much sought after technique taught by practitioners and via his hugely successful videos all over the US. This attractive, highly designed and illustrated guide brings yogilates to the UK.
Why Yoga and Pilates? Because they belong together! The mind/body benefits of Yoga and the powerful therapeutic value of Pilates combine to produce an all-round, totally balanced, low-impact work out.
What are Yogilates special strengths? As traditionally practiced, both yoga and pilates both contain some difficult, complicated and risky exercises that detract from the technique’s accessibility. Yogilates balances the spinal arching of yoga with the core strengthening moves of Pilates and pools the benefits of both disciplines into a totally safe, effective synergy.
Clearly and simply presents Yogilates techniques.
• With user-friendly routines and several levels of difficulty, with tips on when to progress to the next level.
• Tips for improving strength in key areas such as the neck, knees and back.
• Shows how to incorporate Yogilates into a healthy lifestyle.
