What is Callanetics?
Callanetics is a gentle form of exercise involving complete muscle tightening and inch loss in a relaxing atmosphere to therapeutic music with emphasis on breathing, posture, and balance. It is a slow paced exercise effective for deep muscle toning and meditation. It lasts one hour and pupils are encouraged to do some of the exercises at home.
Why exercise with a slow movement?
Our basic need is to move. The body is built for use, without it the muscles get slack and weak. An unfit body is only 27% efficient in energy output compared to 56% with regular exercise.
We are all made aware of increased exercise reducing heart disease.
Other benefits of regular exercise include:
Co-ordination and reflex responses improve and stress is reduced thus helping to strengthen the nervous system.
