Yolates @ Core Fitness
Yoga is an eastern Indian tradition that focuses on strength, flexibility, and spirituality. Pilates was created by German-born Joseph Pilates nearly a century ago. Pilates focuses on building strength in the deep muscles of the abdominal region, the body's core.
Both practices involve attaining specific postures. Both emphasize correct breathing. Both emphasize meditative mindfulness.
Why combine yoga and pilates?
Despite the hybrid name, Yolates is not a gimmick; it’s built on a very tried and true, historically proven form of exercise.
Yoga focuses on flexibility, then strength. Pilates focuses on stability, then strength and flexibility. Pilates helps develop a stable core, sometimes taken for granted in yoga classes. People who have complained about hurting themselves in a yoga class perhaps did not have the core development to move through the various postures, or to pull as far as they pushed. Combining the two disciplines of "yoga" and "pilates" into "Yolates" is ideal.
Who Is "Yolates" Good For?
Yolates is good for almost everyone, but it is particularly good for bad back pain and postnatal women because it builds strength through the torso. It is not appropriate for pregnant women.
