Gyrotonic®

Gyrotonic® exercise offers 360-degree freedom of movement, resulting in increased equilibrium through comfortable stretches that build strength in the spine.

Watsu®

This passive technique is derived from Zen Shiatsu and performed in a specialised warm-water pool. The buoyancy of the water supports you, while your joints are mobilised and muscles gently stretched by a therapist. Each move flows smoothly into the next, and is coordinated with an integral rhythm that allows emotional as well as physical progression. Through deep relaxation and nurturing, the mind can find peace and freeing the body from pain or discomfort.

Anapanasati (Meditation)

Anapanasati is a core meditation practice in Theravada, Tiantai, and Chán/Zen traditions of Buddhism. The Anapanasati Sutta specifically involves mindfulness of inhalation and exhalation as a part of paying attention to one's body in silence, and recommends the practice of Anapanasati Meditation as a means of cultivating the seven factors of awakening: Mindfulness, Analysis, Persistence, Rapture, Serenity, Concentration, and Equanimity.

Bone Density Exercise

This is a programme created for stimulating bone strength through natural movement and proper weight-bearing posture. The human skeleton is most efficient when its pressure on the ground is produced in rhythmic waves that stream from one polarity to the other, creating stronger bones. Each person’s individual condition and rhythm is considered and bone strength is stimulated through the coordination of all body parts into a consistent alignment.

Pilates Body Conditioning

Pilates is a unique form of exercise that caters to the specific needs of each individual. Slow, precise movements allow you to become aware of any weakness and postural misalignment caused by injury or muscle imbalance. Your individual programme will tone up muscles and increase flexibility as well as your core stability. Our professionally equipped Pilates Studio will allow you to work out using many forms of Pilates, regardless of your fitness level.

Gyrokinesis®

This unique form of exercise incorporates many key principles of yoga, dance, gymnastics and Tai Chi. Rhythmic, spiralling and undulating movements set the spine in motion sending waves of circulation through the inner organs and all other tissues in the body. Corresponding breathing patterns oxygenate the blood to stimulate the nervous system allowing the body to move with greater fluidity, relaxation, and power.

Re-functional Exercise

Exercise can lead to more pain and discomfort if the wrong muscles are being worked rather than the essential ones. Our Physiotherapists analyse your posture, muscle and soft tissue to create a special programme that gives correct postural technique, strengthens core muscles and increases total body flexibility. Re-functional Exercise combines Pilates and careful use of special equipment to ensure that your workout is safe and effective.

H2O Body Complex

Water exercise can simulate many techniques we perform in a gym, while the absence of gravity allows you to make full use of your body without joint injuries. As water resistance is approximately 12 times greater than air, the result is highly efficient toning, strengthening and calorie-burning. This non-impact cardiovascular workout directly improves strength, endurance, flexibility, cardio-respiratory endurance and body composition.
