The Pilates method is a discipline created by Joseph Hubertus Pilates in the mid-20th century to overcome his own physical problems. Since then, this combination of yoga, Swedish gymnastics, martial arts and ballet has been one of the most popular fitness disciplines in the world.
Thanks to the practice of Pilates, we exercise our whole body, although it focuses more on the musculature of our abdomen, back and pelvic floor. Its benefits? All of them!
- Improved concentration.
- Greater control of your own body.
- Greater precision in the movements and balance of the body.
- Learn to breathe correctly and synchronised with your movements.
- Improved physical condition for people with joint or muscle diseases.
- Provides strength and elasticity.
- Improves sleep and relaxation by combining breathing and strength techniques.
- Improve your body posture.
As you can see this discipline covers many needs that we all have today. The best thing? Our teachers Judith and Britta will adapt all the exercises so that none of you are left out. We are waiting for you!
Our Toning classes are based, as the name suggests, on Muscle Toning. What is muscle toning? Very simple! It is the ability of our muscles to increase their tone and become stronger and firmer.
With the aim of exercising the body in a complete way, our classes are based on a series of exercises with weights and with the body itself following a choreography to the rhythm of the music. Does it sound simple to you? We encourage you to try it, you’ll see how you’ll end up with stiffness!
Although within the world of Zumba we can find numerous variables; in general, this type of training fuses high and low intensity movements to the rhythm of the latest Latin music. A discipline created in the mid 1990’s by Alberto “Beto” Perez and focused on maintaining a healthy, strong and flexible body, it is a complete workout disguised as dancing, rhythm and lots and lots of laughter.
At Raquetas de Mijas, Yolanda and Marieke will make you live the world of Zumba combining cardiovascular and muscular work, balance and flexibility and activating your body.
