If you're anything like me, you've gotten way too comfortable on that sofa this lockdown, and perhaps, also like me, with the summer months approaching and the possibility of a holiday (or at least a trip to the nearest beach) you might be looking for the motivation to kick-start your fitness journey.
Recently, I came across an Instagram post for Morning Gloryville, Sunrise Disco Yoga Flow and immediately I just knew it was the one! Now available as a live class via Zoom, this has become one of the hottest trends to hit fitness this year. Existing devotees amongst my friends are many, so I was already curious about joining, and I have to admit the positive reports are true, it’s fab! Disco Yoga will elevate your mood, while you stretch and dance yourself to a happier more joyous mindset.
So how does this work you may ask?
Surely Yoga and Disco are polar opposites?
Well, you'd imagine so, but by combining dynamic sequences with Vinyasa flow yoga and glitter it becomes the perfect
blend for an hour of fun!
Uplifting and upbeat, you can stretch, jump it out and shake off those lockdown blues and then chill it all down before the class ends with some stretches, breathing exercises and guided meditation, all geared towards helping you to feel more energised, rejuvenated and invigorated.
Further Benefits of Disco Yoga:
Improved muscle tone.
Increased body confidence.
Improved sleeping patterns.
Better stress management (let's boost those endorphins).
You can socialise (guilt free) with those outside your bubble!
Helps you to glow, glow, glow.
It makes your soul smile!
What should I wear?
Sparkles are optional, a smile however, is a must!
Feel free to glam it up and don some shimmer, shine and sequins. Renowned for my love of all things glitzy, getting ready for my class, is in itself, my perfect mood-lifter! (After all, Glitter by name, glitter by nature).
Bling not your thing? No problem, pop the joggers and a T-shirt on and just be ready to boogie!
