Unlike a full-contact game of chess, yoga challenges both the mind and body without resulting in violence and hurt feelings – it also tones and slims the body better and encourages kinship rather than hitting someone with your king. Leave overaggressive pawns for the board and tone up the safer way with four yoga classes and four slimming camp classes for R99 at Ignition Health.
An established name in the health and fitness industry, Ignition Health is staffed by an experienced team of trainers who aim to make health and wellbeing more fun than playing hopscotch with a lemur. Knowing that getting the body into shape usually makes people think of gym – which in turn leads to ending up on the couch with the distinct aftertaste of chocolate and bad habits, the gym bag doubling as a pillow – the good-health guides and Ignition make getting fit fun.
Four yoga classes lead even the most inflexible aspiring yogis through the fundamental poses, in lessons that are both challenging yet relaxing. Not only do the postures help to improve core-stability, flexibility and general fitness; it’s a widely accepted way of de-stressing after a long day – or before a long day. While downward-facing-dog’ing it is a rather solitary way to tone the body, the slim camp classes were designed as a way to get into shape and make new friends at the same time – much like playing on the monkey-bars as a kid.
Four consecutive weeks of slim-camp and yoga are sure to boost your suppleness, fitness level and self-confidence, kick-starting those get-fit New Year’s resolutions.Weight-loss Fact: One of the strangest diets to be published was designed by a French woman named Patti Paresseux. She suggested eating only low-fat yoghurt and working in a noodle bar. The smell of working and serving food all day in the noodle bar is supposed to make you feel full.
