Pilates and Yoga

Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or reformer machines to build strength and improve mobility.

Pilates Classes

At Evolve, we know that when you come to us – you want the best for your body. That’s why we conduct an introductory session regardless of experience because we need to know what your body needs and what your personal goals are so that we can prescribe exercises accordingly. Your personal plan is discussed during the introductory session as well as the fundamentals of Pilates and how that applies to your personalised program.

Benefits of Yoga

  • Improves concentration and creativity
  • Improves circulation
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Regulates adrenal glands

Yoga Classes

Find balance with Yoga – the slow and introspective practice targets the body’s energetic system, the connective tissues, joints and fascia. Yoga is an ancient form of movement which plays a vital role in countering our modern day stress. During your introductory session if joint mobility restrictions and tissue extensibility dysfunctions are present, Yoga may be the best pathway for you. At Evolve, we currently offer Vinyasa flow.

Note: You must complete your intro session before participating in these classes.
