HAVE A NEW
HABITS & A
Enjoy a beautiful, invigorating day with Claudia (ucci pilates), and Su (Chanprasong Yoga), set in the picturesque town of Hertford, next to the River Lea.
This day retreat has been carefully designed to focus on body and mind conditioning and revitalisation, through toning and strength exercises, slow flow yoga movements, relaxation and guided meditation. Complete beginners and all levels welcome.
Come join us at The Mill House located next to the beautiful and tranquil River Lea, and spend the morning before class walking along the river or enjoy lunch to the sound of the birds chirping and watching the narrow boats go by.
Claudia will be focusing on a functional approach to the more traditional pilates. She teaches a wide range of of ages and mixed abilities and will be applying a set of exercises that will give you a full body workout, and using every single muscle in your body that ultimately, if the exercises are continued, will give you a strong, toned body and pain free lifestyle. Pilates focuses on core control and pelvic stability, (an area that weakens and we neglect as we get older), with an aim to improve your posture, balance, mobilise your joints and increase your flexibility.
SLOW FLOW YOGA
Slow flow yoga will be lead by Su. Slow flow yoga allows you to become familiar with your own body, while moving, breathing and stretching between poses. You will discover your own personal limitations and learn how to move past the limitations of mind and body. The pace is slow, but challenges will be present. Poses can be refined and strengthened, without feeling rushed into the next move, next breath or next pose.
