FAQs

What is the Zumba Fitness?

Zumba involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music. The choreography incorporates Hip-Hop, Soca, Samba, Salsa, Merengue,Cumbia, Reggeaton and Mambo.

What if you can’t follow the moves? What if it’s too hard? What if you’re too out of shape?

Any new fitness adventure can be intimidating at first.One of the first things you will notice is that students range in dance ability. As long as you are moving, you’re doing it right. The instructor queues the moves while facing the class directly and if you can’t follow a particular move, that’s okay! Just keep moving to the beat. And…oh that beat. Whether you know the music or not, it’s hard NOT to feel it in your bones. You will most definitely leave with at least one song echoing in your head, a much-welcomed earworm.

What is a typical Zumba® class like?

A typical Zumba® class is one hour long. Each class will include an 8-12 minute warmup song, followed by a series of songs that range and alternate from higher to lower intensity, depending on the rhythm, and ending with a cool down and stretching song.  Each class will offer a mixture of Latin and world rhythms, usually not more than 2-3 songs from a rhythm would be used in the same class. The use of different rhythms offers variety to participants and also drives the intensity level, which helps to create an excellent fat-burning class.

 

What else should I expect from your Zumba® class?

Prepare to sweat!  Zumba® will get your heart pumping and increase your endurance – you’ll have more energy and burn fat.  The moves will work your core (abs, back and hips) to strengthen and define them.  That being said, you can adjust the intensity easily to suit yourself, your abilities and fitness level.  Prepare to have fun and to move yourself to the music!

 

What if I need a break? What if I need water?

The small moments between songs are a perfect time to grab water (please do!) and great time for recovery (take some deep breaths), but you are free to take a break to catch your breath, stretch something out, grab some water, run to the bathroom, AT ANY POINT during class.  Please, listen to your body!!

Do I need previous dance experience?

Simple answer – NO!  Dancers and non-dancers alike immediately and easily master a Zumba® class because previous dance experience is not necessary. A Zumba® class creates a party-like atmosphere that provides a non- intimidating opportunity for non-dancers, new exercisers, or those who have previously hesitated to participate in group classes.

Still feel unsure?  If you come a few minutes early, we can also walk you through some of the basic steps you will see in class and we are happy to take a few minutes after class to review anything or answer any questions.

What if ...I have "two left feet"? Lack coordination? ...Don’t get the steps? Can’t keep up?

This is not a traditional dance class.  We are not going to “teach” you the steps and then have you “perform” them.  There is certainly no exam. Don’t worry about people watching you. Besides, everyone is so focused on getting into the music; no one will even see what you are doing!  Our instructor is there to lead you, but really, enjoy the music, keep moving to the best of your own ability, and have fun, because that’s what it’s all about!  As long as you are not afraid to try, you can certainly do   Zumba®.    It’s a workout designed to be fun. It’s not a structured dance class like the tango or waltz, so there is no need to worry about “learning” steps. Also, the moves are repeated several times and are very easy to follow. There is no right or wrong way to Zumba®, so if you are doing a slightly or completely different move than the instructor or your neighbour, it doesn’t matter…just enjoy it!
Beginner tip: Focus on the feet first, then the arms/hips, etc. and the rest will follow!  It gets easier with every class!

What are the benefits of Zumba®? Does it work?

•Great dynamic core workout
•High caloric expenditure
•Easy, non-intimidating learning environment
•Weight loss—As with any exercise program, consistency and a sensible, well-balanced nutrition program will increase the likelihood of weight loss.
•Positive self-image—Nurtures a high level of “feeling good.”
•A sculpted body
•Exercise in disguise

What should I wear?

Comfort is the key, so make sure you wear clothes that you are able to move freely in. Be prepared to sweat, so think about wearing light weight clothes. We wouldn’t advise Zumba® in jeans. The best foot wear for Zumba® are cross training/aerobics/dance trainers.  If you don’t have any of these don’t worry, you’ll be fine in a pair of fairly worn trainers, with not too much of a grip on them. Running trainers are not recommended as they tend to have too much grip and less lateral support for the twisting and turning movements that Zumba® involves.

Should I bring anything with me to class?

Yes, definitely bring a water bottle with you to class.  It is extremely important to hydrate before, during and after class, as you will sweat.  You may also want to a bring a towel, or even a change of clothes… because you will SWEAT!  You may also want to bring a small towel.
Please help us keep the dance floor clean and dry by bringing your indoor dance/fitness shoes with you and leaving your outdoor footwear on the mats as you come in.

Most importantly leave your worries, egos and judgement at the door – bring a smile, an open mind and be ready to have FUN!!

Who can participate in Zumba® class?

Our Zumba® class is open to all adults (18+) – both women and men are welcome!  
Girls/Boys aged 12+ may participate.

What if I haven't exercised in a long time? Can I still attend?

Yes of course, you have to start somewhere!!  People of all fitness levels can attend Zumba® classes.
Note: If you have not exercised in a long time, or have ANY health concerns or injuries, we HIGHLY recommend and request that you see your doctor to obtain clearance to start classes. Zumba can be intense, so go at your own pace and listen to your body. Take a break when you need one!  You don’t have to keep up with everyone else in your first class.
Don’t overdo it, we want you to have fun and come back!

 

What if I have an injury or health condition?

Your ability to attend class will depend on your condition, so it’s ALWAYS best to discuss this with your doctor first. They are best qualified to make this decision. Even if you have been cleared by your doctor to attend, please still let us know if you have any injury or condition that may cause some discomfort, so we can help you to make appropriate modifications. That being said, we are not medical professionals and will not provide medical advice.
Again, listen to your body! Don’t ignore what your body is telling you.
Note: All participants are required to sign a waiver before their first class.

Are all Zumba classes the same?

All Zumba® classes will likely contain Salsa, Merengue, Reggaeton, and Cumbia, along with a variety of other Latin and international rhythms to round out the playlist. Some current pop music may also be included in the playlist, but should not dominate the playlist. Most of the songs used have been specifically chosen for Zumba® by Beto, the creator of Zumba®. However, you will find that no two Zumba® instructors or Zumba® classes are exactly alike. Each Instructor brings their own vibe, style, and unique strengths to their class!

Playlists stay similar from week to week, changing only a couple of songs every few weeks. Since the basic steps and rhythms remain similar, it’s never boring, nor too difficult. Instructors usually go with the needs and desires of the class.
If you try a class and you like Zumba® but aren’t sure whether the class or instructor are a good fit for you, try another one and find the class that best suits YOU!

What’s the difference between Pilates and Yoga?

Pilates mainly concentrates on cultivating core strength in the body and lengthening the spine. Also, Pilates is a valuable tool for increasing strength, definition and proper posture. Yoga aims to work the body equally and unite the body with mind and spirit. Yoga is often considered therapeutic when compared to Pilates, as it helps people find harmony and release stress. Yoga has many different styles, but all are generally performed in a group setting on a Yoga mat with the aid of a Yoga instructor.

Will Pilates help me lose weight?

Pilates is famous for creating long, lean, fit bodies. There are many ways that doing Pilates supports weight loss and a trimmer appearance:

  • Exercise burns calories. How many calories you burn depends on your body type and your level of exertion.
  • Creating lean muscle mass, as Pilates does, is one of the best ways to increase your calorie-burning potential.
  • Pilates tones and shapes the body.
  • One of the best ways to look and feel thinner is to have beautiful posture. Pilates creates a leaner look by emphasizing both length and good alignment.
  • Pilates promotes deep and efficient respiration, which is essential for calorie burning and tissue regeneration.
  • Engaging in an exercise program, like Pilates, promotes self-esteem and heightened lifestyle consciousness. Both are associated with weight loss.
  • Pilates is an enlivening workout that can help sustain energy levels throughout your day. However, it is not usually done as aerobic exercise. Therefore, some people enjoy combining Pilates with aerobic/cardio exercise in order to maximize their weight loss.

Do I have to be in shape to do Pilates?

No! Anyone can start Pilates and at any level. It will be catered to meet you where you are. In fact, we like when clients find us and are just beginning their journey in Pilates. Then we teach them the language of Pilates from the beginning.

What’s the difference between working out on the equipment and the Pilates Mat classes?

Mat classes really focus on core work, and require you to support your body and are very challenging. Pilates equipment gives you a frame to work within and is often more helpful than mat but can be more challenging when springs are added or taken away. Working-out on the equipment also targets and tones specific areas of your body very efficiently.

Who is a good teacher? Who has the most Pilates experience?

All our teachers are highly qualified Pilates instructors and have been teaching different lengths of time. We only hire the best! Each teacher has a distinct style and personality and our goal is to help you connect with your teacher and be inspired to move. We promise to work hard in making that happen.

Which is a better workout, Mat or Reformer?

Both are fantastic workouts and complement each other. Mat is challenging because you are on your own, and have to control and challenge your body and mind. Reformer is a great workout because you have the machine to support you, and also the added weight with springs to really work on specific areas of your body and challenge it. People like them for different reasons and it is a personal choice. Doing both is the traditional way of practicing Pilates.

How often should I do Pilates each week?

The ideal practice of Pilates is 3 times per week. However, you need to take into consideration – time, finances, stress level and burning out. We suggest starting with one session (100% more than you are doing now!) and adding more sessions when you can. You can also try a Mat or Group Reformer class, providing you are approved to do so. You will see results quickly if you do more sessions each week.

How long do I need to take Pilates for me to see changes in my body?

In less than one month you will feel and hopefully even visually see a difference. Everyone responds differently but wonderful changes will happen if you commit to doing Pilates every week! “10 sessions- Feel the difference. 20 sessions- See the difference. 30 sessions- Have a new body!”

Is Pilates only focused on the core?

Everything you do in Pilates is supported from the core (transverse abdominals, pelvic floor, spinal muscles and diaphragm make up the core). Pilates also focuses on breath, balance, flexibility, coordination, control, stamina, toning, posture and overall health.

I want 6 pack abs. Will Pilates help me achieve that?

Pilates will do that and much more by creating a balanced approach to core strengthening that will tone and lean out your abdominal muscles and cinch in your waist.

I have herniated discs in my back. Can I do Pilates? Will it be good for my back?

Yes, Pilates is wonderful for back issues! Pilates is able to help in back pain treatment mainly in two ways. The first is by the strengthening your muscles and making them more flexible, while the second is through improving your posture. Pilates enables your joints and muscles to become stronger and more flexible. By doing so, you will be able to make them tough enough to withstand the strain and other stresses that happen as you are doing your regular activities. When your muscles are stronger, they can withstand injury better. When the muscles are more flexible, you have less risk of straining them when you contort your body into awkward positions. In this regard, Pilates would really help you in your back pain treatment.

I recently had surgery. Can I take Pilates?

Yes, depending on what type of surgery. We do require a medical release from your doctor. Once you have received clearance, an instructor will then be able to work with you to begin strengthening and getting you back to your best self!

What is Strong by Zumba?

Stop counting the reps. Start training to the beat. STRONG by Zumba® combines body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training moves synced to original music that has been specifically designed to match every single move. Every squat, every lunge, every burpee is driven by the music, helping you make it to that last rep, and maybe even five more.

What are the benefits of Strong by Zumba®?

In a one-hour class you will burn calories while toning arms, legs, abs and glutes. Plyometric or explosive moves like high knees, burpees, and jumping jacks are interchanged with isometric moves like lunges, squats, and kickboxing. STRONG by Zumba® instructors change up the music and moves frequently to make sure you’re always challenged to the max.

How does this program differ from other HIIT workouts?

In all other workouts, music is just an afterthought and chosen independently of the moves and structure of the class. In a STRONG by Zumba™ class, music is the key element. First, we develop moves to drive specific results, then we reverse engineer and craft music to match every single move. The result is a revolutionary, perfectly synced workout that increases your motivation and allows you to push farther to achieve better results.

STRONG by Zumba™ is also characterized by a unique system of progression. The class is built into 4 quadrants that build in intensity for ultimate results.

What should I wear?

Comfort is the key, so make sure you wear clothes that you are able to move freely in. Be prepared to sweat, so think about wearing light weight clothes. We wouldn’t advise STRONG by Zumba™ in jeans. The best foot wear for STRONG by Zumba™ are cross training/aerobics/dance trainers.  If you don’t have any of these don’t worry, you’ll be fine in a pair of fairly worn trainers, with not too much of a grip on them. Running trainers are not recommended as they tend to have too much grip and less lateral support for the twisting and turning movements that Zumba® involves.

Who can participate in your STRONG by Zumba™ class?

Our class is open to all adults (18+) – both women and men are welcome!  

Should I bring anything with me to class?

Yes, definitely bring a water bottle with you to class.  It is extremely important to hydrate before, during and after class, as you will sweat.  You may also want to a bring a towel, or even a change of clothes… because you will SWEAT!  You may also want to bring a small towel.

Please help us keep the dance floor clean and dry by bringing your indoor dance/fitness shoes with you and leaving your outdoor footwear on the mats as you come in.

Most importantly leave your worries, egos and judgement at the door – bring a smile, an open mind and be ready to have FUN!!

Don’t overdo it, we want you to have fun and come back

How often should I do Strong By Zumba each week?

Consistently crushing your STRONG by Zumba® workouts at least 3 times per week for just 12-weeks and eating a sensible diet can result in an overall leaner, more toned body with inches lost in the waist, abs, hips, thighs, and calves.***

No skills (or shoes!) required

ACE study test subjects serve as examples: Sixteen randomly selected women, ages 18 to 45, proved you can go into aerial workouts pretty much cold and still get the hang of things.

It's one of the best ab workouts around

A benefit of taking your routine off the ground is that you lose your point of stability; you’ll start to engage your core immediately without even realizing it. It honestly has been the most effective ab workout.

Mat poses become easier to master

Been working on your headstand or forearm stand in yoga? Forget kicking up against a wall and consider this: “The silk wraps around your body and supports you in certain difficult poses like inversions, giving you the experience of how a pose should feel.In other words, taking a few aerial classes might raise your game in your regular yoga classes as well.

It counts as cardio too

The ACE researchers figured there would be full-body firming. Study participants increased muscle mass and decreased fat mass all over, so it’s likely that aerial yoga provides strength-building benefits. Expect to see definition in your shoulders and arms especially. But the scientists were surprised at just how cardio intensive this form of yoga can be.

It's zero-impact

Whether or not you have knee problems, adding some low- or no-impact workouts is great for you ,and aerial classes are exactly that easy on the joints.

You'll walk away feeling Zen

Research shows that mind-body activities can reduce stress, and aerial yoga is no exception. Many classes end with you lying in savasana, cocooned in a hammock as you gently swing from side to side. Talk about blissing out!

How is this program different from any other dance program?

The following is what makes the Agile Kids program different from any other dance program –

  • It lays emphasis on the process (Creating a dance, increasing range of movement) while with other dance programs, it is about the end product (steps, pre-taught choreography).
  • Agile Kids uses the body as an expression and not just a showcase of pre-learned steps or routines.
  • While laying emphasis on physical development, every lesson plan also covers a child’s cognitive, social, aesthetic and emotional development.
  • This program not only teaches dance but also fuels up creativity, divergent thinking and team building skills through extensive use of creative movement.

Is this a scientifically proven program?

Yes, it is!

“Research shows that movement and exercise can spark the growth of new brain cells and facilitate learning” (Ratey 2008)

“Movement, a natural process of life, is now understood to be essential to learning, creative thought, and high level formal reasoning. It is time to consciously bring integrative movement back into every aspect of our lives and realize, as I have, that something this simple and natural can be the source of miracles” (Hannaford 1995. 214)

“Movement and exercise improves learning on three levels: first, it optimizes your mind-set to improve alertness, attention, and motivation; second, it prepares and encourages nerve cells to bind to one another, which is the cellular basis for logging in new information; and third, it spurs the development of new nerve cells from stem cells in the hippocampus” (Ratey,2008, 53).

So, is creative movement a new concept?

No, it is not. It is a widely used tool for overall child development in schools across developed countries and has been highly researched and developed with the focal point being a child’s progress.

Why is there a difference in approach in Pre-school and Primary?

Preschool has more structured dancing, less group activities and partner activities and is also teacher centric as compared to the Primary School syllabus. The reason being skill development and gross motor development even though developing rapidly is still at a very basic level at the Pre-School stage. Thus, imitation helps a child in this age group to build these skills faster. This age group is not completely ready for group interaction and teamwork. Having said that there are still loads of opportunities for firing up creativity, promoting exploration and experiential learning.

Will this program improve a child's dancing skills?

Yes absolutely! The Agile Kids program is based on the exploration of Body, Space, Energy and Time, which is the basis for development of movement skills for all dance forms. The curriculum allows for a tremendous freedom of movement in various ways, which in the process prepares the body for easy adaptation to dance genres.

How is the Agile Kids program different from a PE program?

Agile Kids focuses on the process and not the product. It is about creation and not about the end product or result. Each child finds his/her own solution to the same movement challenge and realizes there can be different solutions to one problem and that there are multiple ways (way currently) to express the same idea. Agile Kids is non-competitive, giving a child a pressure free learning experience where the only parameters he/she will be measured by are his/her own.

Agile Kids is a program that meets a child’s innate need to express thoughts, feelings and understanding of an idea through movement. All other movement in a curriculum is functional- students acquire skills, such as throwing or kicking a ball, or in gymnastics; for example, children learn the principle of balance etc. Both functional and expressive types of movement experiences are necessary for children to develop their full potential and Agile Kids provides both such experiences.

What is Certified Ballet?

Rhythmus Happyfeet is affiliated to Ballet Manila and offers certification in ballet from the same institution. Ballet Manila is a 20 year old ballet arts performing academy in the Philippines. After completion of the final examinations, which will be accessed by Ballet Manila faculty, the kids would be awarded certificates. Scholarships will be awarded to talented students to attend the summer intensive program in Ballet Manila, Philippines.

Will my daughter get certified after joining the class and when?

Our term typically starts from February to January. If a student joins at anywhere from Feb to March, they will be eligible for the examinations. At the end of the term, i.e. in the month of January, we conduct examinations, which will be accessed by Ballet Manila faculty from the Philippines. After completion of these examinations, the student gets certified in the Vaganova Ballet method.

For how many years does one have to learn ballet?

Ballet is an intensive and a very technical form of dancing which needs years of practice. To master this form of dancing, it depends totally on various factors like child’s interest, regular practice, being able to take corrections and apply them in class. It typically take 5 to 6 years to get to a good level of dancing.

Why don’t we teach children of age 3 to 5?

A structured ballet class which includes Barre work, center work, adagio and allegro movements start at the age of 7yrs as kids can follow these movements at this age as their gross motor skills are developed by now.

What method of ballet do you teach?

Rhythmus Happyfeet Ballet educates kids in Vaganova ballet method.

Are there any levels for ballet?

We have 8 levels in our ballet certification exams. Preparatory is the starting level , level 1 and so on.

Few reasons, why we don’t start pre ballet at age 3.

1)  If we start pre ballet at the age of 3yrs, the gap from 3yrs to 7yrs of age is too much for a child to keep doing the same class for 4 years. Some kids leave ballet after they reach 7years since they get bored doing the same thing. At age 7 is when structured class starts.

2)  At age 3, kids are more curious. They love to explore and move around as much as possible. We don’t want to limit that. Instead we conduct ‘creative movement’ classes, which is suitable for this age group. Creative movement is all about exploring various movements through the body. We play age appropriate music and songs that kids relate to. Songs that speak about going to granny’s farm, story of 3 best friends –jumping jack joe & jane.

Ballet for this age is a little technical and puts them in a box.

My child has never done ballet but she’s 7. Why can’t she start with pre ballet?

Pre- Ballet is typically for children 5-6 years old. The focus of this class is basic arms and feet position, flexibility and strength.

At age 7, your child is ready for certified ballet classes, where she can take more instructions and follow a more structured class which included Barre work, center, adagio and allegro movements. Unless the timings do not suit your child, we would not want to limit his/ her potential to do more.

What is the focus of Pre- Ballet classes?

In Pre ballet classes (5 yrs. – 7yrs), our focus is a lot on flexibility. Opening the child’s box splits, back arch, hip rotators. We also work on basic ballet arms and feet position, posture, and basic ballet movements. This class is more about developing the love for ballet and therefore we teach routines on cute fairy and princess songs.

What is Aqua Zumba?

You perform large muscle movements by stretching your arms and lifting your legs in the water. The typical land-based Zumba dance steps, such as cha-cha, merengue, salsa, reggaeton and mambo, are exaggerated and slower in the water, so the water tempo is half the land tempo.

What are the benefits of Aqua Zumba?

There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba® class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.

How long is the class?

45 minutes

I take Zumba at the gym, is Aqua Zumba the same routines but in the pool?

Aqua Zumba is the aquatic lower impact version of Zumba

Do I have to memorize the routines?

It will be the same routine to the same song every time. So you get a chance to learn the routines at multiple classes if you don’t catch it all the first time. Instructors will make routines easy to follow so you can join in at any class.

Will we be doing the same songs every class?

The songs are changed periodically to keep it fresh!

Will I even get a workout from doing Zumba in the pool?

You will be moving your body against the resistance of water so be prepared to exercise and have fun!

Since we are in the pool do I have to bring a water bottle?

Exercise in water can cause dehydration. Bring water to class and drink as many times as you need them.

Can I participate if I cannot swim?

No swimming skills required.

What do I wear to Aqua Zumba class?

SUPPORTIVE swimwear is the best option when participating in Aqua Zumba. Forest Club authority is not responsible for any articles of clothing that you bring into the pool. You may want to invest in a pair of shoes designed for aqua fitness to avoid your feet slipping on the bottom of the pool while you exercise, however they are not required

What if some of the moves are too difficult for me?

Do only what’s comfortable and appropriate for you in class but most of all make sure you have fun!

Is Pound™ just a workout for my arms?

No way! Pound works out your entire body, and mainly focuses on the core, back and legs. For those of you familiar with Pilates, you’ll understand that when you vigorously move your arms while your body is in a variety of positions, that type of instability automatically activates your core and lower back. Drumming on the floor, in the air and beating the sticks together challenges muscles that are rarely activated during any other type of exercise, creating stronger, leaner, more efficient muscles throughout the whole body. And, best of all, Pound™ will not add bulk to your arms, only light definition, which is great for females and males alike!

Do I have to be a musician to like Pound™?

Are you kidding? If you like to listen to music, find yourself tapping your foot when your favorite song comes on the radio or like jamming in your car, you’ll love Pound™. Designed for all levels of coordination, musicality and ability, Pound™ lets you drum to the simplest beats, all the way to advanced loops that only rockstars can dominate (at least, until now!) The best part is, Pound™ will help you learn basic beats and gain a sense of how to keep rhythm, which will

help you if you ever decide to pick up an instrument!

What type of workout is Pound™? Strength? Cardio?

Pound™ is the workout with the widest scope on the market, combining resistance training, isometric movement, fat-burning cardio, agility mastery, proprioceptive acuity (the skill that dancers have that allows them to have heightened awareness of where each body part is in space), symmetry restoration and balance. One hour of Pound™-ing burns up to 800 calories, tones all of your large muscle groups, fine-tunes all of your supporting muscles, ligaments and tendons, and amps your cardiovascular system.

What makes Pound™ different than any other fitness method?

Rocking out while you workout has so many benefits because it is the first fitness system to use light hand weights in a fast, repetitive fashion. These weights happen to also look and feel like a heavier version of your standard rock-n-roll drumsticks! Cool, huh? Astonishing results in how you look and feel are achieved through the use of Ripstix™ and small, concentrated, acute movements that isolate every single large and supporting muscle group in the body. These “rare” movements challenge dormant muscles and best of all, strengthen neuromuscular circuitry, or the brain’s ability to “wake up” and use the muscles. The stronger the connection between brain and muscles, the more efficiently you can use your body, which all leads to you looking and feeling your best. It pays to rock out!

Why do I need to add functional fitness training in my fitness regime if I am doing regular weight training and cardio exercises at the gym?

Regular weight training exercises are important to build the foundation, as long as exercises are unsupported compound exercises but they lack fitness in totality.

Functional fitness training not only makes you look athletic but also be athletic. It gives you a whole lot of exercise benefits such as speed, agility, reaction time, real strength (not cosmetic), muscle endurance and a 100+ variation making it real fun way to train.

What is the difference between regular weight training and functional fitness training?

The most important difference between weight training and functional fitness training is “movement”.

Functional fitness training involves natural everyday movements as well as sports specific movements. Weight training involves few natural movements and no sports specific movements. Central nervous system is more involved in functional fitness training. Weight training exercises are done on machines which have a fixed RO (range of movement).

Functional fitness training is freedom of movement training that gives scope for 100+ exercise variation. Whereas regular gym exercises will have fewer exercise variation. To do functional fitness training you have to be skilled, have balance and co-ordination skills, speed, agility and reaction time has to be has to be good.

How does Functional Fitness training help obese clients?

Functional fitness training is the best form of exercise for fat loss as it’s the most active form of exercise. By active exercise we mean none of the movements are supported (i.e., lying down and exercising, sitting and exercising on machines which have a fixed R-O-M). The exercises which are done on the machine are not active but partially active exercises, where the body does not work as one unit it, it works in compartments.

 Body working as one unit is the key to fat loss. Kinetic chain of muscles results in more musculo-skeletal involvement which in turn results in more calorie requirement. Daily activities can be quite difficult for overweight people. What slender people take for granted like getting into a car, walking up a flight of stairs and sitting down can be a massive struggle to others.

For obese clients remember a thumb rule “THE MORE YOU MOVE, THE MORE YOU CAN MOVE”. Functional fitness training is all about movement with resistance on different planes, and it is this movement that makes functional fitness training the most active form of training for fat loss.

What is Ashtanga Yoga?

These asanas (poses) can release muscle tension, stretch and tone muscles, lubricate joints, massage internal organs, increase circulation and help in weight control. Other benefits of yoga are greater resistance to stress, a stronger immune system, a balanced nervous system, decreased cholesterol and blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure.

What do I need to bring?

You will need to wear comfortable clothing that won’t restrict movement. Please bring a small towel and a yoga mat (you can borrow one from us for your first few classes).

How Is Yoga Different From Stretching or Other Kinds of Fitness?

Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga is more than just physical postures. Patanjali’s eight-fold path illustrates how the physical practice is just one aspect of yoga. Even within the physical practice, yoga is unique because we connect the movement of the body and the fluctuations of the mind to the rhythm of our breath. Connecting the mind, body, and breath helps us to direct our attention inward. Through this process of inward attention, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them. We become more aware of our experiences from moment to moment. The awareness that we cultivate is what makes yoga a practice, rather than a task or a goal to be completed. Your body will most likely become much more flexible by doing yoga, and so will your mind.

How Many Times Per Week Should I Practice?

Yoga is amazing—even if you only practice for one hour a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. If you can do more than that, you will certainly experience more benefits. We recommend starting with two or three times a week, for an hour or an hour and a half each time. If you can only do 20 minutes per session, that’s fine too. Don’t let time constraints or unrealistic goals be an obstacle—do what you can and don’t worry about it. You will likely find that after a while your desire to practice expands naturally and you will find yourself doing more and more.

I’m Not Flexible—Can I Do Yoga?

Yes! You are a perfect candidate for yoga. Many people think that they need to be flexible to begin yoga, but that’s a little bit like thinking that you need to be able to play tennis in order to take tennis lessons. Come as you are and you will find that yoga practice will help you become more flexible.

This newfound agility will be balanced by strength, coordination, and enhanced cardiovascular health, as well as a sense of physical confidence and overall well-being.

Is practicing Yoga throughout my pregnancy beneficial?

Ideal way to stay in shape: Pre-Natal Yoga can be an ideal way to stay in shape during pregnancy as it keeps you limber, tones your muscles, and improves your balance and circulation, with little, if any, impact on your joints.

Helps diminish swelling and joint inflammation: Swelling and inflammation is caused by water retention and decreased blood circulation. Since yoga helps promote blood circulation, it is effective at preventing and reducing the common swelling of the ankles, feet and hands during pregnancy.

Prevents and decreases pain in the lower back: Lower back pain is a common complaint during pregnancy. Regular prenatal yoga practice stretches the muscles of the lower back and strengthens these muscles and the spine. This reduces muscular tension and improves posture which alleviates the back pain.

Stress Relief: To adjust to the physical demands of the pregnancy, birth and motherhood, yoga provides the mother’s body with physical and emotional stress relief throughout the pregnancy. Achieving a more balanced hormonal system, pregnant mothers can maintain a greater sense of well being through breathing and relaxation exercises that calm both the body and mind.

Natural remedy: Pre-Natal Yoga provides natural relief from common pregnancy discomforts with no external application of medication.

If I have not practiced yoga prior to my pregnancy, can I still do so during pregnancy?

Yes, this is possible. A pregnant woman will find that practicing yoga during pregnancy will benefit the mind and body. Pre-natal classes are designed with the needs and limitations of pregnancy in mind. In addition, most pre-natal yoga poses can be modified to suit an individual’s level of fitness, health and state of pregnancy.

What should I look out for when practicing yoga when pregnant?

With regards to pre-natal yoga, mothers-to-be must take care to avoid certain yoga postures, especially those that are strenuous, or those which may affect the abdominal region. Pregnant ladies are advised to do the exercises to the best of their ability and not to overstrain themselves. If they find difficulty in doing the postures, they can use the various props to assist them, such as the pillows, straps, blocks and chairs. It is also advised that they do the postures slowly, without sudden jerks as they might hurt themselves.

Do not attempt to do a headstand or shoulder stand and skip positions that stretch the abdominal muscles too much, such as deep forward and back bends as well as deep twists. Bring in a bottle of water during class to hydrate yourself. Steer clear of Hot Yoga as it can cause dangerous overheating.

What kind of effect will exercising yoga have on my foetus?

Mothers who practise pre-natal yoga also learn various breathing techniques which help them relax. This is vital for expectant mothers as the process of pregnancy may be rather stressful for the mind and body, especially when her hormonal patterns may be irregular, causing her to suffer from mood swings. Pre-natal yoga postures and breathing techniques will help expectant mothers to relax, and indirectly, helps the foetus to relax since mother and child are so intimately connected. The right breathing techniques also makes sure that the foetus gets complete oxygen flow.

 

Pre-natal yoga helps the foetus to develop healthily as different yoga postures help the expectant mother to stretch her body, and thus, preparing the expectant mother’s body for the labour process

Will practicing Yoga after giving birth help me in losing weight from pregnancy?

Most women deal with two major issues after pregnancy, namely, weight gain and unwanted flab.Yoga deals with these two issues simultaneously, achieving positive results.

The use of various stretches, postures and controlled breathing techniques require an individual to maintain endurance with great precision and control. This will encourage a more efficient metabolism rate in your body, leading to burning more calories which helps in shedding your weight gained during pregnancy.

 

Unlike weight training which focuses on an isolated muscle group, with yoga, all muscle groups are involved during practice. A regular yoga regime coupled with a proper diet and cardiovascular exercise helps in developing leaner, longer muscles and a toned body after pregnancy.
