Yogilates is a mixed technique that combines pilates exercises with yoga. The instructor and dancer Jonathan Urla devised this discipline in 1997 by combining the pilates exercises, focused on coordination and abdominal muscles, with the practice of yoga, focused on relaxation, breathing and flexibility.
On the one hand there is yoga that aims to gain mental and physical benefits through activities where the body is stationary; on the other there is pilates that teaches to take proper posture and give greater harmony and fluidity to the movements, soliciting the muscles through exercises of various kinds. The result is a workout that combines motion exercises with fixed positions and focuses on breathing.
Yogilates training is simple and addictive, always starts with a number of ground exercises to warm the spine, muscles and prepare your mind for more challenging yoga positions. Through the well-structured consistency and frequency of training you gain control of the breath and body positions. Very important is the role of the instructor who guides and accompanies the workout by preventing accidents.
