Yoga, Yo-Fit, Yo-Strength

Yoga: The style of yoga I use is derived from the training I received at yoga-fit, and is a combination of the traditional Hatha yoga poses and poses from other types of yoga practices such as: Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Viniyoga. The format is flowing in nature, and includes a warm-up and cool-down. Some of the features and benefits of this kind of yoga are: muscle balancing, flexibility and relaxation. The poses are safe, easy to understand, and are designed with all populations in mind, independent of age and fitness level. This yoga style was created to use in health clubs or fitness studios.

Yo-Fit: Exercise experts often promote the need for individuals to diversify their workout routine in order to achieve optimum fitness growth. Yo-Fit is exactly that: a diverse group of exercises and poses put together to challenge the body and create the most optimum fitness growth possible for each particular individual. The Yo-Fit workout includes the use of cardio equipment such as: the treadmill, the elliptical, the stationary bike, as well as the jump rope, and other cardio exercises, with free weights, dyna-bands, and weight machines, interspersed with yoga poses held for a period of time, to further enhance the quality of the person’s workout and physique. Yo-Fit encompasses all the major fitness components necessary to look and feel good inside and out: cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance and strength, and flexibility.

Yo-Strength: Yo-Strength is an exercise form I developed which allows the client to do exercises using hand held weights while performing yoga poses. Iyengar yoga works especially well for this unique type of workout, because it encourages good alignment, perfecting poses, long holds, and often uses props; the props in this case being the hand weights. Also, since yoga promotes isometric contractions (opposing muscles are very contracted, and there is minimum shortening, but a great increase in tone of muscle fibers is involved) I thought the use of hand weights would be a wonderful addition to this stimulating workout routine. Yo-Strength is a great option for people who enjoy a mind/muscle connection!
