Good Vibes for Men

17 November 2013

frazer1frazer2

Frazer Yorke is a man who likes to look good. His hectic career in TV production means he is very busy and the time he spends working out has to count. This means he pushes himself with gym and PT sessions 3 to 4 times a week to ensure his body is always in tip-top shape.

When Frazer first came to Good Vibes he had already lost weight and toned up through a mixture of cardio and weights at the gym, but he was keen to find out what other types of exercise could do for him. ‘Yoga and Pilates I really see as exercise for girls, so I really want to see how it works for a man’, three months later Frazer discovered exactly what these traditionally female disciplines could do for him.

One month into his three month stint at Good Vibes, Frazer was now signed up to Power Plates, Yoga, and Glow Cycle and was already starting to feel different, ‘after a morning spin class I had so much more energy and a calmer head, I feel fitter and the yoga has been really good for helping me sleep, which I often struggle with due to my stressful job’.

Frazer also appreciated how different Good Vibes was to the traditional gyms he was used to, ‘there is a much friendlier and less aggressive feeling than a regular gym and the yoga classes are seriously challenging’.

After two months at Good Vibes Frazer really started to notice a marked improvement other areas of his exercise regime, particularly when it came to running, ‘my stamina has improved so much since being at Good Vibes’.

The difference in the exercise undertaken at Good Vibes left ‘Frazer with a lighter, more flexible feeling, as well as an improved physique. By the end of three months he had this to say ‘I’ve lost half a stone, my upper body has reduced has reduced in size in the right places and I have better definition in my arms as well!’

So boys, if you think that yoga and power plates are just for girls, think again!

Find the calm on your tube journey

17 November 2013

tube It’s the morning rush hour and you’re battling with everyone else to get to work on time. There are no seats, your nose is in someone’s armpit and the tube stops in places to "regulate the service" ( does ANYONE know what that actually means?)

Our journey into work can send us into stress over drive before the day has even started but instead of repeating the same response patterns day in and out  - why not change your attitude? Here’s a quick and easy way to make your journey calmer.

Find the bones of your feet in your shoes, send your weight downwards through your feet. As you do this lift up and away from your ankles, your knees , your hips and pelvis and float the crown of the head up and away from your shoulders and neck. Feel your skull lengthening away from your heels. Feel your shoulders broaden.

As you inhale imagine you are breathing in through the left sole of your foot, up into your left leg, up along the left side of the spine and to the crown of your head. Pause.

As you exhale, keep the length in the spine and  imagine you are breathing down your right side of the spine, down your right leg and out through the sole of your right foot. Pause.

As you inhale imagine you are now inhaling through the right sole of your foot, your right leg, right side of the spine and up into the crown of your head. Pause.

As you exhale, keep the length you have created as you  send your breath down into the left side of the spine the left leg and the sole of your left foot.

Repeat this cycle a few times, you should feel grounded as well as tall and proud.

The next time you breathe in, imagine the breath starting from the soles of both feet up into both sides of the spine and up into the crown of the head. Pause. On the  exhale send your breath down both sides of the body, both legs and out through both soles of the feet.

Get out one stop earlier and walk the rest of the way to work swinging your arms so that you get fresh air and a chance to move your body before arriving at work with a smile on your face and ready to start the day.

Want to re-tune your brain to find the calm in the chaos? Have a look at the Glow Yoga timetable and workshop calender.

Glow Yoga is all about the clients and having a bit of fun.  Adam took everyone through a sweet and sweaty yoga flow with cheesy pop as the soundtrack. Celebrating with bubbles afterwards, it's a great way to end the working week!
