• How to easily fit Yoga and Pilates into your busy schedule

    With all the best intentions in the world, it is easy to become overwhelmed by a hectic schedule, and sadly, this often means that your health and wellbeing becomes neglected. While yoga and Pilates are known for their improvement to your physical health, they are also beneficial to support your mental health.  These classes can also be a great way to take some time out for yourself; to wind down and quieten your mind while boosting your body’s circulation and metabolism.


    Dual Membership

    If you have a membership to Kaya Health Clubs, and regularly attend classes for yoga or Pilates in Prahran, don’t dismay if you find yourself dashing all around Melbourne and unable to attend your regular classes; a dual membership may be just what you need.  A dual membership to Kaya Health Clubs allows your access to practice either yoga or pilates in Prahran and Emporium (CBD) locations and enjoy all the classes and facilities both locations have to offer.  This can be great if you are in the city and know you are not going to make it back in time for your Pilates class in Prahran.

    Plan your day

    Something as simple as planning out what you need to do and where you need to be at the start of the day, can help manage a busy schedule. By knowing where you need to be, you can often find a window of time to squeeze in a session of yoga in Prahran or Pilates in the city.  It can also help you manage your workload and still allow you to nurture yourself, by making time for perhaps a Vinyasa yoga class to really get your body moving and work out some of your frustrations.  If it’s calm you need, you’ll benefit from a guided meditation class, to help re-centre yourself and wind down when you mind feels like it’s running a million miles an hour.  At Kaya Health Clubs, we offer a range of classes at both Prahran and Emporium locations with dedicated instructors to guide you.

    Multitask and use the facilities

    By planning ahead and executing some strategic multitasking, you will be surprised how much you can fit into your day, without adding to your workload.  Something as simple as always having your Kaya bag with you, packed with your change of clothes and toiletries, you can easily slip in a Pilates session when you find yourself with some free time during your lunch break, and be back at work, without anyone even knowing you were gone.  This will help you get through your afternoon with renewed energy, and by getting into the habit or having your gym bag with you at all times, it means you can seize the opportunity to nurture your body whenever the opportunity strikes. Days can be unpredictable, so be ready to take any opportunity to nurture yourself.
