Stress from our hectic lifestyles and our high-pressure jobs can make us feel run-down and fatigued, causing some of us to gain weight.
Yoga is a great form of exercise and with the correct guidance, it can boost energy levels and condition the body for weight loss. Regular practice will gradually see your body become more toned, you will increase your muscular strength and will promote longer, leaner muscles. Your flexibility will also improve and you will increase your core strength (the balance between your abdominal muscles and back muscles), allowing for better posture, balance, and coordination.
Professional instructor, Susan Fulton (BA Hons, BSYA, RSA), accompanied by a guest presenter, takes you through this beautifully crafted and easy-to-follow workout. You will be guided through some of the familiar postures of Hatha Yoga, including: Sun Salutation, Tree Balance, Half Moon Balance, Boat, and Plank.
This program derives its inspiration and technique from Hatha Yoga and demonstrates two levels of postures covering beginners through to more advanced positions.
