Stretch, Strengthen, Relax, Renew.
Louise Solomon, the founder of the Solomon YogalatesTM method, originally turned to Yoga for relief from stress and general burnout. Unfortunately, during a class, due to lack of training and proper instruction, Louise sustained an injury that prevented her from continuing her practice. This incident lead to a search for an alternative form of exercise – Pilates. Louise loved her new-found strength and the improvement in posture, movement and muscle tone. Pilates became part of her life and she then spent 2 and a half years studying and teaching Pilates.Although Louise loved Pilates, she discovered something was missing for her; the therapeutic value of yoga and the ambiance and meditative quality of the classes. This discovery motivated her return to yoga training.It was this turn of events that culminated in the integration of the two disciplines.Many of the Yoga postures are not suited to bodies that are accustomed to the Western lifestyle of sitting in chairs and cars or being desk bound. YogalatesTM was originally developed to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western forms of exercise. It is a movement system which started by incorporating the best of Yoga and Pilates , but it is always evolving and developing along with the latest medical research.YogalatesTM works on increasing the strength and stability of the muscles close to the skeleton, encompassing the deep postural muscles of the spine and pelvis whilst supporting and rejuvenating the nervous system. There is also a focus on developing strength in the pelvic floor muscles, an area often neglected. Flexibility and graceful movement are encouraged by incorporating the spiritual moves and dynamic breathing of Yoga. Energy is unblocked and balanced, muscles and organs gain strength; developing balance in the whole body. There is also a strong focus on working safely and encouraging clients to work according to their individual needs.
So.... Stretch, Strengthen, Relax, Renew.
