Originating in ancient India, the word yoga means to unite or to join, and in yoga, we unite our minds and our bodies through breath. Beyond improving flexibility, strength, and balance, yoga is a discipline that utilizes the mind-body connection to reduce stress and enhance wellbeing. Most Western yoga derives from hatha, one of the six major branches of yoga. Traditional hatha yoga consists of asanas (physical postures) and pranayamas (breathing exercises). Spas, fitness centres, and yoga studios offer a variety of classes such as yoga for beginners to advanced level 2. Depending on your day, you may partake in a more restorative yoga class such as calm kundalini, with its mantras and meditation, or a butt-kicking, strength-enhancing power yoga - there are numerous yoga retreats and studios to suit your needs.

CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning system developed in California in the late 90s. All CrossFit training is comprised of three elements: functional movements (which replicate real life movement) at high intensity (think cardiovascular) and with constant variety. The mindset at the beginning of each CrossFit workout is to be stronger, and move faster, with better form than ever. Make no mistake - CrossFit is hard work. It is also fun, exhilarating, challenging, and will push you to be your absolute best! CrossFit training is offered at many gyms and fitness centres, in both individual and group instruction settings.
