The class will begin with easy, flowing Tai Chi moves to leave your day behind, center yourself and warm your body.
The instructor will then take you through various Yoga and Pilates sequences to strengthen and tone your key muscle groups. Poses and stretches are used to create suppleness and flexibility.
The final 10 minutes are set aside for the widely acknowledged mental and physiological benefits of meditation which also enhances the effects of the exercise.
How often should you take a class?
