What is Les Mills BodyBalance?
From the world famous Les Mills fitness classes, BodyBalance really is ideal for anyone and everyone! It is a yoga-based class that helps to improve your mind, your body and your life. During the class an inspired soundtrack plays as you bend, stretch and move your body through a series of simple yoga moves and embrace elements of both tai chi and pilates. Breathing control is a part of all the exercises and the class instructor will always provide options for those just getting started. You’ll strengthen your entire body and leave the class feeling calm and centred.
Who is it for?
If you haven’t tried yoga before then the BodyBalance class is a great introduction. If you’re already doing some form of yoga you’ll love the variety you get here with this class too! It works as it mixes controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music. This creates a holistic workout that brings your body into a state of harmony and balance. Improve your flexibility and increase core strength while reducing stress levels at the same time. You’ll focus your mind and create a lasting sense of wellbeing, calm and serenity. Booking required – see the class times and dates and book your place all on the Westpark Fitness app.
Frequently Asked Questions
All you need to know about Les Mills BodyBalance
What do I need to attend the class?
All you need is comfortable workout clothes and something warm to wear during the final relaxation track. You don’t need any shoes and yoga mats are optional.
I’ve never done yoga before. Does that matter?
Not at all. Simply follow your instructor as they will show you all of the appropriate options. It pays to commit to three or four classes from the start to feel comfortable with all the moves.
How often should I do a BodyBalance class?
While you’ll feel real benefits from coming to class just once a week, attending three classes a week will really help you improve and both see and feel results.
I’m pregnant, can I still do BodyBalance?
The BodyBalance class can help maintain core control and muscle balance for those who are pregnant. Safety is our number one priority, so we recommend talking with your doctor or midwife first who will advise you appropriately as they have the best knowledge of your medical history. A chat also with your class instructor beforehand to let them know you’re pregnant should also happen. They’ll suggest some modifications for you throughout the class if needed.
