Why Yoga and Pilates?

Yoga brings your body back to its natural state of balance. It is a union between the body and the mind and forms a connection and a feeling of wholeness that no other form of exercise can. Yoga is not just physical, it is a state of mind that is carried throughout daily life. Yoga creates stronger, healthier bodies and minds, and helps us achieve strength and balance in all areas of our lives.

Pilates elongates and tones muscles, while aiding in healthy balancing of body and mind. It is a wonderful compliment to yoga, and visa versa.
