What to Wear:
Dress - to workout! You can wear any type of fitness clothes; leggings/tights, shorts, tank tops, t-shirts anything you feel beautiful in, comfortable in and something that feels easy to move in! We believe you should dress to feel inspired, gorgeous and beautiful!
Footwear - we usually do our movement flows barefoot - to retrain the sensory function, muscle and fascia in your feet. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing shoes then we recommend you use shoes that offer good support, stability and cushion your movements. Avoid shoes with deep treads because they restrict your movement. Shoes that have a smooth sole are best.
Welcomed & Embraced
The core essence of all our classes are that you feel warm, embraced and supported in your movement journey. We want that during our classes you may enjoy the joy, warmth and friendship of other like-minded individuals. Therefore, we have a ‘no-judgement’ and ‘non-competitive’ policy. Meaning there are no mistakes, there is no perfection in movement, your opinions are valued, and you may laugh, cry, express yourself, or be quietly reflective. We ask that you are kind and respectful to everyone joining our classes.
If this is your first class with us, be kind to yourself. Rest when you need to and listen to your body. We believe in allowing you the space and comfort to listen to your body by working at a pace that feels comfortable to you! If something doesn’t feel right for you, sit back and take the time to simply observe. Maybe next time that movement flow sequence will feel right for you to try. You are welcome to ask questions and talk to your instructor about any concerns you may have. Your ‘Flow Class’ is essentially a journey of self-discovery. It really is your own personal journey and no one else's.
Our intention is that you leave all our classes feeling welcomed and cherished for who you are ~ 'Beautifully You’.
BEAUTY MOVEMENT ELEMENTS
Beautiful ~ Movement & Flow
Improve your fitness through the feminine beauty of dance. Dancing is an enjoyable way to exercise and move with benefits that are incredibly rejuvenating for your body's health. Improve your coordination, energy levels, muscle tone and posture along with increased body awareness. The steps are simple to master and before you know it, you will have learnt the basics to many beautiful dance routines. Dancing is a wonderful way to feel joy and lightness!
Beautiful ~ Strength & Tone
Our beautiful movement classes focus on sculpting beautiful toned muscles by embracing strengthening and resistance exercises from ballet-inspired movement. Using elements of barre fitness you will learn to isolate muscle groups which becomes effective in body sculpting and developing the elegance, grace and finesse of ballerinas.
Beautiful ~ Flexibility & Suppleness
Movement flows are infused with elements of yoga, fascia releasing, and stretching. This unique blended fusion results in full body suppleness, flexibility, tone, strength, improved breathing, emotional release, and even energy revitalization. Incorporating certain yoga movements can also assist in gently massaging the body and help to purify organ functions. Various postures, poses and movement sequences apply varying degrees of pressure to our internal organs. This in turn, gently but powerfully stimulates these organs to detoxify and heal. Our internal organs are the foundation of our health, controlling everything from digestion to detoxification ... absolutely necessary for internal and outer beauty.
Beautiful ~ Center & Core
Centered Physically ~ All movement radiates outward from your center. The center refers to the abdomen, lower back and pelvis. It is often called the “core”. Our bodies generate movement and power from within our core. It is also the source of stability and support for every kind of movement we make. When the core is strong, the frame of the body is supported. Strong deep core abdominal muscles are the key to not only having a flat stomach but for also preventing injuries to the back and knees! Our movement classes incorporate this fundamental backbone to each movement flow created. Our focus is to teach you safe ways to develop a strong, centered core.
Centered in Everyday Life ~ relates to remaining mentally calm, collected and balanced in the midst of our often chaotic lives. This applies to our physical activity as well. Learning to work from your core can help you to act in a more centered way. If you are connected to your physical center, you are going to feel strong, powerful and calm. You are less likely to feel overwhelmed or out of control. Blended into each movement flows are components of emotional restoration and centeredness. We want you to leave the class feeling centered and calm ~ bringing you back to your true essence!
Beautiful ~ Poise & Posture
Emphasis throughout our movement classes are on good spinal, pelvic and shoulder alignment. It supports beautiful posture and allows you to move with ease and grace. We want to help you age gracefully with elegance and poise!
Beauty ~ Wrinkle Lift ~ Glowing Skin ~ Anti-aging
Strengthening and relaxing your facial muscles with a few simple exercises can result in some serious anti-ageing benefits! Look younger and healthier by giving your face a natural face lift through special facial exercises! As we age our skin loses some of its elasticity and our facial muscles loses some of its tone. Not only do facial exercises help to reduce a double chin and lift sagging eyes, they also encourage your skin to produce some of its natural oils to rejuvenate it.
Exercise is a great deterrent of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Exercise supports the production of collagen, a protein that is the support structure of our skin. When you exercise, you strengthen and tone the muscles beneath the skin, making the skin look healthier. The stronger your muscles are, the more support the skin will have and the firmer and more elastic the skin will look.
Achieve glowing skin also through regular exercise, this improves the health of the skin by improving blood circulation to the skin surface. It helps to supply essential nutrients to the skin. Aerobic exercise makes you sweat and promotes the removal of toxins through perspiration. Working out tones the skin, improves blood circulation and oxygenation to the skin and so imparts a healthy glow.
Beautiful ~ Breathe & Be
Focusing on the breath improves oxygen intake and circulation of oxygenated blood to every part of the body. This improves your body's ability to cleanse, invigorate and detoxify - perfect beauty enhancers! Deep relaxed breathing starts to reduce cortisol and stress levels - key factors in successful weight loss and vibrant health!
Beautiful - Rest & Rejuvenation
Our class concludes with restorative elements that help you to release tension in your muscles and spine along with reducing the effects of stress. Activating your parasympathetic nervous system is a fundamental element in helping your body to rest and recover; making it less vulnerable to stress-related illness! Reducing your adrenal stress is the best solution to achieve weight loss and glowing health!
