Frequently asked questions

Is Yoga right for me?

Yoga is a form of exercise used to improve posture, strength, flexibility, balance and breathing. It is also a form of physical therapy used in injury rehabilitation and pre/post natal care. Please call us and arrange to speak to a member of the team if you are unsure if Pilates would be right for you.

What is the difference between Yoga and Pilates?

Both yoga and Pilates emphasise the importance of strength, flexibility, breathing, balance, core stability and postural awareness and at the Ludgate Clinic we believe in a combination of both. The two main differences are the breathing technique and that in Pilates as well as mat-work we also use equipment such as the Reformer. In Pilates the active phase of the breath occurs during exhalation by pulling the navel into the spine, in yoga however the muscles surrounding the lungs are active throughout inhalation and passive during exhalation.

What should I wear?

As dynamic flow yoga involves dynamic strength and flexibility exercise please bring loose clothing to change into.
