Throw on a tutu and breathe a sigh of relief. Ballet yoga fusion combines elements of dance and yoga to bring you a class that will truly benefit your mind, body and soul. This workout aims to improve balance, aerobic fitness and muscle tone so dance on down to your nearest class.

How does it work?

Pioneered by professional dancer David Olton, ballet yoga fusion mixes the techniques of vinyasa flow yoga with aspects of ballet and contemporary dance, together with the postures of Pilates for a workout that helps you unwind as you sweat - lovely.

The exercise class begins with a thorough warm up which incorporates flowing movements to help synchronise your mind and body. Correct alignment is key, so once you’ve limbered up you’ll start working through a series of yoga postures while incorporating breathing techniques and perfect your pose.

Keeping it fresh, the class then involves mat work based on Pilates-inspired moves to strengthen your core. This is followed by moves that wouldn’t look out of place in ballet and contemporary dance - from quick steps to pirouettes. Usually an hour long, you’ll be grateful to finally wind down and relax to finish.

The class uses all the muscles in the body to give you an all over holistic workout - leeping you on your toes while relaxing the mind.

Is it for me?

If you’re looking for a different way to keep fit then this could be exactly what you need. Mix your love of dance with the calming benefits of yoga for a calorie burner that will tone down your stress levels. Shape up body and mind in just an hour - how’s that for multi tasking?
