The popular Gayle Prescott Dance School is venturing into fitness and well-being, offering multiple Pilates, barre, and stretch classes for all ages and abilities during the lead-up to summer. The idea is to get people moving together and promote a healthy lifestyle amongst the community.
Pilates is great for building core strength and control, body awareness, balance and correct posture. It is also a great rehab option for those recovering from injuries. Barre is a higher intensity workout – think basic ballet steps to catchy music and other interesting Pilates-based exercises that are designed to strengthen and lengthen muscles. The stretch classes will have you walking out calmer as they work on taking away unnecessary tension in the body and relieving stiffness in the joints.
Studio director, Rebecca, has a huge passion for physical activity. “The benefits of physical exercise go on and on. It’s number one on the list for maintaining cognitive function and staving off diseases like Alzheimers and various cancers and cardiovascular diseases.”
Rebecca also believes in delivering classes that are small enough to be personalised. Let her know if you’re dealing with injuries, pre or post-natal, and she’ll give you ways to modify your movements throughout the class.
It’s a great feeling being in a social environment while you’re exercising – moving and challenging yourself alongside others with the same motivations and goals as you.
Now is the time to kickstart a fitness routine for yourself, and meet others along the way! For class times and more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
