Fusion gives you the stretch and relaxation and freedom of yoga. While targetting the core and technical strengthening of the body that pilates allows. During a fusion class we use yoga to warm up, losen and work on the endurance of the body. When warm we then use pilates to further work on endurance and stability within the body and joints. We finish using yoga to wind down and relax the body again. A great class full of variety.
