Body Stretching

 

We will open 15mins before a session so on arrival please choose your mat (2mx1m), the gym mats allow sufficient space between each member also giving your body a little absorption/protection on the joints. I have provided you with a basket & it holds a 'strong' resistance 'booty band' & 1.5kg pair of dumbbells. If you wish to change the size & weight there are 'x-light' 'light' 'medium' & 'x-strong' bands available & 0.5kg up to 2.5kg dumbbells. There boxes available for larger bags to give you more space on the mat or please use the basket for smaller items (keys, phone, etc.) If you wish to bring your own equipment you are more than welcome. Thick yoga mats are also provided & are located on the walls for our floor tracks & cool downs. So here is what to expect in our sessions....

stretching & warm up

30 minutes standing workout

10 minutes floor workout

cool down

It's important for our bodies to stretch & warm up before any workout so try to arrive on time to get this in. 2mins of stretching & 3mins of a dance based warm up. These steps are not broken down but expect some shoulder rolls, box steps, wrist rolls, chest openers, soft knee/ankle rotations & skips or steps.

Each track is roughly 3mins give or take an average of 8 standing tracks. In true Jungle Body style every instructor will break down the steps either 2 or even 4 steps for a safe & effective workout. This section is designed to target areas standing so each track is different & includes a cardio track, a boxing track, biceps track, shoulder & upper body, squat track, triceps, dance/latin/disco & a standing core/ballet or balance track.

We usually rock out 2 or sometimes 3 tracks, 1 floor track will be BURN! so dumbbells or 'booty bands' or both will be required targeting either abs, thighs, glutes or arms can also be a combination of. These tracks will be done either on hands & knees, on your side or on your back. Jagua® tracks will be added also (body weight only) legs, inner thighs, glutes or abs.

Like a warm up, it's so important to allow the body to stretch & cool down. Together with some breathing we usually start seated or lying on your back. A cool down is around 5 mins depending on the workout given. You will start with some long hold stretching then move into some yoga based moves or light motion dance.

On completion of our session please wipe down your yoga mat & dumbbells with the dettol wipes located in the basket at the back of the room & leave them on the gym mats to dry. You don't need to roll the yoga mats back up. The studio will remain open for another15mins so you are more than welcome to have a chat, check out the activewear range & cosmetic products or just chill out.
