RELAXATION AND MEDITATION EVENINGS IN CRYSTAL PALACE

 

Over the years of teaching in Crystal Palace we have found that stress plays a huge part in how our bodies function and so to complement our pilates teaching we are offering relaxation and meditation evenings.  These have been immensely beneficial in helping our clients learn how to release and manage unwanted physical tension.

Join us for a 2 hour Relaxation and Meditation session.  Here you will learn breathing techniques which trigger the relaxation response, learn different physical relaxation tools, exercise using both Qi Gung and pilates techniques to stretch and release tired and tight muscles and finally relax and experience 35 minutes of a guided meditation/relaxation session.

The perfect way to float into your weekend.

 

Sessions run from  7 – 9pm at the Salvation Army Centre on Westow Street, Crystal Palace.

FUTURE DATES:         TO BE ANNOUNCED

PRICE £23.00

Relaxation is something that we all need to do, but not something that we all make time for. Going to Palace Pilates for relaxation is a really good start; understanding how I breathe and learning how to relax, without going into a deep sleep – it’s amazing!  If you are uncertain what you will get from the classes … I would say – try it once, and then you will know. Never try it, and you will never know“.    Claire Smith

 

 

THE DO’S AND DON’TS OF EXERCISING WITH OSTEOPENIA / OSTEOPOROSIS

Date to be announced

Osteoporosis is the loss of bone density.  Our bones have an inner honeycomb like structure and are made up of a mixture of minerals – the most important being calcium.  With osteoporosis less calcium is absorbed in our bodies and struts in the honeycomb can weaken making us more susceptible to micro and full fractures.  Osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis where in simple terms there is a smaller loss of bone density.

The good news is that the more weight bearing exercise we do, the more the bone producing cells are stimulated so pilates can be immensely beneficial – although some adaptations do need to be made.

This workshop that  will discuss the above  and  take you through the Do’s and Don’ts of exercising with this condition.
