Pilates can strengthen the body in an even way, it focuses on the body’s core strength which will improve general fitness and well being.
Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed physical & mental health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling. In the 1920s Joseph Pilates immigrated to the US and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method, which he called “contrology”.
Pilates classes at YogaSpaceYorkshire are a mat class.
Who is Pilates for?
Pilates has something to offer people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness, from beginners to elite athletes.
Regular Pilates can improve your posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieving stress and tension. Pilates can complement training for elite athletes, including dancers by focusing on developing whole-body strength and flexibility which will help to reduce the risk of injury.
We have a Pilates Class at YogaSpaceYorkshire timetabled for Mondays at 6pm and Thursday mornings at 9.30am – each class runs for 60 minutes.
I’ve always been interested in exercise and, as I got older, determined to keep my body toned and supple.
Pilates works for me as it is all about strengthening and toning without the energetic jumping around of the “gym bunny”. I enjoy and find the stretching very beneficial and strengthening making an amazing connection between the mind and body.
Pilates has definitely strengthened my back and given me a more toned and flexible body, better posture and fitness. My general well-being has improved whilst going through a very stressful period in my life. Pilates has rehabilitated my body from a succession of riding accidents.
As Joseph Pilates said “if you have an inflexible spine at 30 you are OLD. if you have a flexible spine at 60 you are YOUNG”
The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!
I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.
Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.
Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.
I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it
I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.
My advice? Book it now!
I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.
