Welcome to Mind Body Moment

owned by Janet Drake, teaching Yogalates™ Method to adults of any age, gender & ability

Why does Janet teach Yogalates?

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

For example:

I've tried in the past but didn't understand what I was doing or why

Pilates is for those recovering from injuries

Yoga is only for flexible fit youngsters

Having gained benefits from both Pilates & Yoga myself, I looked for a way in which I could help to enlighten these misconceptions and confusions.

I found Yogalates™ and created Mind Body Moment to teach this fabulously safe exercise method.

It is a mindful practice; assisting in developing focus, calm and peace within both the body and mind.

“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!”
