Yoga is the classic program of all body and mind trends. The name originates from Sanskrit and means "connecting" or "merging". However it is not a religion, Yoga is based on millions of years of knowledge and practicing. The traditional form is based in India and the people there practice Yoga for more than 3500 years now. In India it is not a sport, it is art and science. At the moment, yoga training is a fitness trend. The traditional way of practice, the so called Hatha Yoga, can be found in every course schedule in fitness centres and yoga studios. Apart from the standard version, a lot of different forms and versions of yoga training exist nowadays: Asthanga Yoga, Anusara Yoga or Athletic Yoga to name just a few of the different styles. A very special training routine is the one called Bikram Yoga. The participants exercise the different asana, the official name for the different yoga poses, in rooms with a temperature of about 40°C - that's why it is also called "Hot Yoga".

Pilates: Soft body workout with the powerhouse
Pilates is a soft way to train your muscles, improve your personal fitness and to stretch. The Pilates method had been developed 100 years ago. The inventor of Pilates developed the training for his own physical training and to prevent himself from immobility and disease. Earlier in his life he did workouts and tried a lot of sports. But instead of concentrating on only one discipline he took only those parts of every discipline he needed and developed his own method. Pilates training was once called "Contrology". Over the years the inventor refined the method. A lot of different athletes got interested in the new training program. Soon dancers and gymnasts did Pilates exercises and even actors had been enthusiastic about the method. Pilates training combines strength, stamina, energy and grace in one single training routine. It is a traditional training course and part of every course schedule in fitness centres. The centre of Pilates training is the combination of breath and movement. Flowing moves and a permanent connection of body and mind are characteristics for Pilates. The main goal of the training method is a solid and stable medial, the powerhouse.
