Stay motivated in Winter

25 January 2015

woman-running-in-winter-horiz

It's tough getting of bed on a cold winter morning or getting into class after work, when all you want to do curl up with the heating on.

But working out all winter long will get you through the colder months by keeping your mood buoyant and your waistline trim.

Need convincing?

Exercise boosts your immune system - studies have shown that exercising a few times a week can reduce the number of colds you get every year.

Winter Weight - it's easy to pile on the pounds during the winter, but by ensuring you keep up your exercise, you keep building on your fitness levels as well as fire up your metabolism and circulation.

Seasonal Affective Disorder - S.A.D is something that affects most people and is caused by poor nutrition, a decrease in being active and a lack of sunshine. The answer – Glow Yoga! You'll get limber in body and mind AND receive a daily dose of Vitamin D through specially designed S.A.D lighting and the warmth from the FAR infra red keeps your joints juicy.

Be sure to book into the Train Smarter workshop with Nadine. This workshop will teach you how to train effectively so that every second on the bike counts. This workshop is for everyone, beginners and advanced alike!

Get lean and strong

18 January 2015

[caption id="attachment_9483" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Good Vibes Studios London Good Vibes Studios London[/caption]

Muscle eats fat!

Did you know that you lose an average of 5% of muscle mass every 10 years after the age of 35? And once you start to lose it you’ll need to eat fewer calories ( 150 – 450) every day to stay at your current weight. We love food and don’t want to dwindle away, so here’s a better way.

To maintain your muscle make sure you eat a little protein at every meal and resistance train on a regular basis.  A few ways build muscle easily...

Power Plate classes are short and sweet and amplify gravity so your body weight feels heavier than it is. When you use additional weight, it is easy to gain lean muscle. Pick up heavier weights in class to challenge yourself a little more. Book here.

Glow Ballet Tone – clients rave about this class, you’ll gain strength and tone and the studio warmth will fire up your muscles. Burn it up and build some muscle! Book here.

In Glow Cycle classes you are pushing weight as you ride for 45 minutes, be sure to book into the Train Smarter workshop with Nadine. This workshop will teach you how to train effectively so that every second on the bike counts. This workshop is for everyone, beginners and advanced alike!

What have you decided to set as your goals this year? Whatever you’ve got on your wish list, we encourage you to focus on the quality of your every action.

If you want to shake the stress monkey off your back once and for all, the restorative yoga classes are a must. Don’t miss out on the Bliss for Better Sleep workshop with Clive at the Fitzrovia studio to learn how to let go of the day.

Saturday 17th January 2pm – 4pm - Book here.

Glow Yang and Yin Yoga

GoodVibes are great believers in the relaxation as well as the action. Do too much action and you stay in a revved up state and cant switch off and too much inaction and inertia sets in.

Our signature Glow Yoga Yang and Yin yoga classes are perfect for busy city people. A well paced flow to quiet your busy minds before we ease you into restorative poses and the end with yoga nidra or meditation.

Haven't tried it yet? You must! Here's what Red online say about our Yang and Yin classes.

Nahid teaches on Sunday morning, it's her favourite class to teach, she will be back on the 25th January - lovely Clare teaching to then.

Sarah C teaches on Mondays and will now be taking over the Wednesday evening Yang and yin, join her for a midweek mood booster!

Niko teaches the Friday night class, a joyous way to end the week.

We are making a radical change to Wednesday morning at Covent Garden, Antonia will be teaching Pilates at 7.30am from the 21st January onwards. Pilates and yoga complement each other perfectly, so join us and get strong and supple. Book now.

Timetables here.
