Welcome to Mind Body Moment

is owned by Janet Drake who teaches the Yogalates™ Method to adults of any age, gender & ability

Why does Janet teach Yogalates?

I am an avid people watcher and in particular noticing how they sit, walk and execute simple movement.

Over time, I have noticed more people with incorrect posture and being un-easy when walking and moving; it is as if people were losing connection with their bodies.

Thanks to my dance background, I understand the impact modern life has on my own body and mind, helped by regular Pilates & Yoga practice.

So I asked some people to share their experience of Yoga or Pilates and I was surprised by the replies.

For example:

I've tried in the past but didn't understand what I was doing or why, so gave up ....

Pilates is for those recovering from injuries ....

Yoga is for flexible fit youngsters ....

etc.

I realised that people were missing out on the benefits that these two forms could bring to their everyday lives.  So, I looked for a way in which I could bring these two exercise forms into one safe method and this is when I found Yogalates™

“I met Janet whilst she was on the Yogalates teacher training course in Tuscany. I was taking the week’s Yogalates retreat and was asked if it would be okay if Janet could practice a one-to-one class with me.
She told me about her background in dance and extensive knowledge of exercise generally and why she wanted to get involved with Yogalates explaining how great an exercise choice it was.
She added a really important dimension to my retreat, showing me that I was in fact pushing myself to do big moves before engaging with, and mastering, the basics. I am sure she saved me from not only doing myself a possible injury but also most definitely helped me get the most out of my classes by adjusting my posture and breathing during my poses.
At the end of the Yogalates classes we always take time to relax and the relaxation part of the exercise with Janet was fantastic too, it showed me how to really breathe properly and relax.
I highly recommend a class with Janet, one-to-ones are important to keep you on track, thank you lots Janet!”
