The technique utilises the body's own resistance in conjunction with weights, bands and small balls. The effect is a long, lean dancers body without being a dancer!
The low impact, total body workout lifts the butt, tones the thighs,
flattens the abs and sculpts the arms, whilst protecting the joints.
Small isometric contractions are performed and integrated with an
interval training approach that burns fat and improves
Posture, flexibility, stamina and core strength are all improved.
The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously
Stretches are performed after each strength section of the class to ensure the muscles are re-lengthened to create a body that is strong without the added bulk of other regimes. This workout is suitable for everybody as various modifications are given throughout the class to suit the abilities of all students.
