This increasingly popular exercise regime incorporates the precision of Pilates, the technique of ballet, the alignment of yoga and the strength from sports conditioning. The combined elements of the different methods fuse to form a challenging and exciting workout, which stretches and sculpts the muscles, whilst burning fat. Balance, strength, stamina, power, flexibility and motor control all improve. This workout produces dramatic results that sculpt and redefine the entire body.

Set to the beat of high energy music, this 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 cardiovascular fitness. The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously and efficiently.

 Giusi

Giusi first encounter with yoga happened at the age of 11, thanks to a magazine. She was very fascinated by it and had fun replicating the asanas portrayed on the pages. Since then, she always intended to start practicing, until the day that, after moving to Florence, one night she woke up and told herself: “tomorrow I will join a yoga class”. So she did. The next day she started practicing and never stopped. She practiced on different levels with various teachers, until the day that her eagerness to learn led her to formal teacher training. To this day,  she continues to further her knowledge and is working towards the recognition of TYT500 and a specialization in Anukalana Yoga. Meanwhile, she has deepened her studies of the body-mind relationship with the study of Pilates and the practice of Vipassana and Tantric meditation.
