Yoga is the oldest known science of self development.  Hatha yoga is a system of exercise and breathing used to achieve physical harmony and well being. 
Yoga improves concentration, suppleness, strength and stamina while inviting awareness and understanding of our minds, bodies and actions. Focus, visualization and self understanding can help train the mind for competition and to improve confidence and focus.

Pilates is an approach to exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the 20th Century.  Pilates improves core strength, stability, posture and joint mobility. The method is particularly useful in injury rehabilitation.  It corrects inefficient movement patterns and muscle imbalances and provides a wonderful compliment to yoga, dance and all sports.
