WHY YOGA & PILATES?

Both Yoga and Pilates have been proven to have vast benefits for your health and lifestyle. A regular yoga or pilates practice (or a combination of both) can lead to physical benefits such as improved posture, breathing, sleep, balance, strength, fitness, flexibility and can also aid in relieving symptoms of chronic conditions. The mental benefits are often what students love about their time on the mat – we help you to de-stress, lower anxiety, and increase overall fitness, mindfulness, calmness and wellbeing.

Pilates is great compliment to your yoga practice – the combination of both disciplines offers an opportunity to develop increased core strength, balance, improved posture and overall greater wellbeing. Both yoga and pilates are perfect ways to move your body, whether you practice these alone or in conjunction with other forms of fitness activities. Our students often tell us that incorporating yoga and pilates into their exercise regime actually improves their ability to train in other areas.

These are some of the reasons why we LOVE our yoga and pilates at IXL Lounge and would love for you to join us.

Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, we offer classes to challenge and develop all skill levels. Allow yourself to experience small intimate classes and personal attention from qualified instructors at our boutique studios. All classes are friendly, fun and are available in a variety of styles to suit your needs.
