Create a lean silhouette

30 June 2014

Glow Pilates and Glow Ballet Tone

Every fitness regime should include Glow Pilates as part of its repertoire. Why? Because Pilates strengthens as it lengthens your muscles giving you a lean silhouette.

You’ll tone your abdominals, arms, thighs and bottom as well as sculpting your waist and shoulders. You’ll improve your flexibility as well as your alignment by creating strength through your deeper postural muscles.

Glow Ballet Tone takes it to another level by throwing in conditioning exercises which will boost your metabolism and sculpt your body.

Glow Pilates and Ballet Tone in our Far infrared heated studios makes you work a little bit harder.

Book into a Glow Pilates or a Ballet Tone class this week if you haven’t already tried it – we have times to suit the busiest of schedules – a great way to kick off your week on Monday 7.30am with Kate or first thing on Saturday morning with Mel 9.45am.

Or why not try them all? They all offer their own distinct style, it’s good to mix and match your teachers to pull your body into the best shape. Meet the Glow Pilates and Ballet Tone teachers.

IMG_0539

Saturday 26th July 2014 3 - 5pm £25 BOOK NOW

A delicious 2 hour challenging flow incorporating a variety of poses and sequences to give you the opportunity to delve even further into your already established yoga practice. Breathe deeply and challenge yourself physically while exploring and witnessing how time can help you to strip down the outer layers of your body and mind to allow you to really melt into your practice, further than you imagined.

Once the physical practice is complete, we relax and let the inner glow of satisfaction take us to completion. Expect to finish happily exhausted and satisfyingly peaceful.

Workshop not suitable for beginners. You should be comfortable with a dynamic flow practice already.

Clare Dobson enjoys focusing on growth and positivity and aims to teach in a way that is clear and concise, while still being fun and creative.

Sarah Campbell - Glow Yoga Teacher

23 June 2014

GoodVibes-GlowYoga-London-SarahC

Sarah is a Glow Yoga teacher, you can book into her classes here.

What is the best time of the day to practice/exercise?

Any time you can fit your practice into your day is the best time for it! Just 5 minutes of connecting to your breath or taking 10 minutes to stretch will significantly help to rebalance body and mind. In an ideal world I love a strongly flowing energising yoga practice in the morning, and a slower more grounding yin based practice in the evenings.

What do you recommend to eat before your class? after the class?

Some fruit like a banana about half an hour before your yoga practice is a great way to have enough energy to get the most out of class without feeling heavy.

What do you love about Good Vibes?

Good Vibes is welcoming to all students - you won't find a friendlier studio. Teachers are strong and challenging but they really care about their students. And the studio is warm and inviting - a beautiful space to practice in.

What do you teach in class?

I teach a joyfully strong dynamic yoga flow, with a focus on breath and alignment. Classes are deep and challenging, and move between playful practice and inward reflection. You'll move strongly before relaxing deeply.

How will I feel after your class?

In a word - balanced! You'll feel calmer, more open and relaxed.

Tell us something surprising about yourself...

I am a science fiction addict - I love to geek out over anything supernatural, futuristic, or fantasy based.

Sarah Campbell teaches a strong and slow vinyasa flow, with a focus on breath and alignment. Classes are deep and challenging, but also safe and fun. Sarah believes yoga can be an incredibly healing tool to help balance the mind and calm the nervous system, and remains grateful for the sense of strength and openness the practice gives her. After hanging up her heels when she left her career in PR Sarah trained to teach with triyoga, and is accredited by the Yoga Alliance and British Wheel of Yoga.

Positive vibes

We’ve come back full of LIFE from the first Good Vibes yoga holiday, and how lovely to come back to glorious sunshine! We really must do it again!

In fact how about next year? Founder Nahid and founding Glow Yoga and Pilates teacher Ruth are going away again on 13th -20th July 2015, save the date!

Holidays serve to remind us of how to be us again. But how to keep that feeling when you get back? Connecting with other people is the best way to get out of your head and into new possibilities.

Turn around to someone next to you in class this week, smile and say HELLO, go on, spread the #GoodVibes and open yourself up to a conversation with someone new.

Our teachers are hand picked for their positive #GoodVibes as well as their teaching experience.

Which means that not only will we get you looking GOOD but you'll also feel GREAT about yourself and will carry those #GoodVibes into your day.

Meet the experts

Her classes are structured so that each budding or life-long yogi will develop and expand upon their own technique, finding balance and calm in the present moment, in a graceful and grounded way.
