The one, the only.. The Hundred

“Physical Fitness is the first prerequisite of Happiness” – Joseph H Pilates

Pilates is a phenomenal way to increase your overall body awareness, combining techniques to strengthen deep postural muscles such as our Powerhouse – the core. With every Pilates posture, deep concentration is focused on every inhale and exhale in order to ensure every exertion and relaxation is attained correctly. Pilates has the ability to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, as well as improve posture, balance, coordination and ultimately breath.

I have been fortunate to try out different Pilates methods conducted by different instructors.. However The Hundred Pilates Studio was definitely an experience worth mentioning.
Pilates is a very precise concept whereby focal muscles and joints must be targeted correctly in order to ensure a proper technique; to allow for the exercise benefits.

The most common Pilates we read about or know about is only the Mat Pilates Classes.. The Hundred Pilates Studio introduced me to a whole new world..

A Fusion you can’t miss.. Yogalates Bliss

IMG_5737[1]

I’ve always been dedicated to the practice of yoga, due to it’s many health & spiritual benefits. In an hour of yoga you can target key muscles, joints, organ functions as well as learn about the discipline of silencing the mind allowing it to focus and remain calm. The combination of bodily postures & mental well-being is completed through a spiritual peacefulness which yoga brings.
Pilates has also always been a favorite, where the focal point of the class is to strengthen your core / spine.. in order to achieve lean beautiful muscles.

Yoga is an ancient Eastern practice that harnesses the power of the mind, body and spirit, with meditating, relaxing and flexibility being the main focus. In practicing Yoga, you move from one pose to another, enhancing strength, stamina, flexibility, balance and mental clarity. Through developing a conscious awareness of the body, mind, breath and life force (prana), Yoga has the ability to be deeply relaxing and health enhancing.

Pilates, on the other hand, was invented by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s as a way to build strength in the postural muscles and prevent injury.  In a Pilates class, strengthening the core is the main objective. Each pose is combined with movements of the limbs, improving spinal flexibility, posture and alignment. Pilates is known globally as a system of muscular skeletal exercises that augment sporting activities, assist in injury rehabilitation and supports those with back problems through re-educating the body’s postural muscles to create a very safe and strong foundation for movement.

Now think about the fusion of these two.. Yogalates Bliss comes in offering a middle ground, combining the best of both worlds by fusing principles of core stability with the foundation of Yoga Therapy. It infuses a meditative aspect that is the core of yoga class but not present in Pilates class, yet concentrates on strengthening the core as in Pilates class. Yogalates, fuses the best of both worlds.. where you can achieve the benefits of a yoga practice as well as the conditioning from a Pilates class in one go !

Beginning your day or ending your day with this restorative and revitalizing practice is definitely something to consider. In a soothing ambiance, on a relaxed rooftop amidst the beautiful Dubai city skyline, you are at a complete state of zen when the steady silent sky is closer to you than the city’s hustle & bustle.
