Body ad Balance – Restorative Pilates with Yoga Nidra


Restorative Pilates is very personal and modified to suit each person’s need. Basic Pilates exercises are modified to enable movements when physical conditions have occurred or are currently present. These physical conditions can vary from lower back pain, shoulder pain, hip and knee pains but also to being pregnant or menopausal. Jill will demonstrate how to modify each exercise to suit and adapt to your condition.

Jill’s 10 Key Foundational Principles

THE FLOW: The aim in all of this is to allow the body and mind to be balanced and move freely with breath, control and precision so that the muscles and joints move with even rhythm.

FOCUSThe focus is on you the individual. A great way to start YogaPilates Fusion is to take a moment with your eyes closed to tap into how you feel right now, and imagine yourself feeling beautifully balanced, standing tall, and realising your strength and focus through your practice of YogaPilates Fusion.

BREATHEConsider your breath to be a “moving meditation.” It is a beautiful thing when you move your body, flowing from one exercise to the next breathing deeply with your focus on moving through your life with a balanced body and mind.

BALANCEBalance is achieved by focusing on the breath while maintaining the correct posture and spinal alignment. The movements in the YogaPilates Fusion program will connect and balance your left and right brain to enable your body and mind to flow in a balanced way moving forward.

MOBILISATIONMobilisation is achieved through the regular movement of the spine through up and down motion as well as side to side, forward to back, and rotations.

COREWhen the core is activated movement becomes dynamic as well as being controlled and precise. Activation of the pelvic floor muscles and deep abdominal muscles are the key to achieving stability through movement.

CARDIOCardio work increases your heart rate and promotes blood flow throughout your body. It will make your heart strong, increase your lung capacity, and reduce your risk of things like heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. It will also help with weight loss if that is something you a looking to achieve.

STRENGTHWhen you lift weights, work out on machines, use resistance bands, or do exercises with your own body weight, you will build strength, muscle mass, and flexibility. Muscle loss is one of the main reasons people feel less stable and energetic as they get older. Building strength is key to my pro-aging approach to everything that I do.

STRETCHActively moving through this series of YogaPilates Fusion exercises will stretch as well as strengthen your muscles, tendons and ligaments. These hold your bones together and are critical to mobility and flexibility.

MEDITATION/RELAXATION/INTENTIONYoga Nidra is also known as the waking sleep. It can totally change the way you feel physically and emotionally, and it perfectly completes the balance of the mind and the body that is at the core of the YogaPilates Fusion® method.
