BODYFLOW™ is the Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance. Like all the LES MILLS™ programs, a new BODYFLOW™ class is released every three months with new music and choreography. (For copyright reasons this program is known as BODYFLOW™ in the USA).
A typical class:
Each class is made up of 45 minutes of simple but challenging exercises, followed by 10 minutes of relaxation and meditation. You will begin with easy, flowing Tai Chi moves to leave your day behind, center yourself and warm your body.
The instructor will then take you through various yoga and pilates sequences to strengthen and tone your key muscle groups. Poses and stretches are used to create suppleness and flexibility.
The final 10 minutes are set aside for the widely acknowledged mental and physiological benefits of meditation which also enhances the effects of the exercise.
