Yoga has evolved into hatha yoga, that is, it has become the discipline of yoga. You don't have to believe in a certain thing to practice yoga. Yoga does not conflict with any religion, nor does it say anything against it. Hatha, when you look deeply into the philosophy of Yoga, you can see their partnership with Sufism, so you don't have to abandon your own religious beliefs to practice Yoga.

Vinyasa flow, which offers the opportunity to explore the calmness in activity and the coordination of breathing and movement, may be the choice of those who like active classes. Vinyasa's popularity stems from the fact that it is practiced with music, transitions from simple poses to complex poses in a fun and safe way, and the fluid movement sequence is easy to memorize. Ashtanga: Ashtanga, meaning 'eight steps', is a form of Hatha yoga. Popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga Yoga asanas (poses) focus on the synchronization of breath and movement during flow from one pose to the next, just like Vinyasa yoga. In Ashtanga Yoga, the person is first taught the sun salutation and the final finishing pose. The student memorizes these movements by repeating them in their own rhythm in the group. When the time comes, new poses are given according to the capacity of the person. As the system progresses from simple to complex by adapting to each student, people of all levels have the opportunity to safely deepen in practice. Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga is a Chinese-born yoga practice based on Taoism. In this exercise, you will experience slowing down, staying in the moment and relaxing by leaving your muscles completely relaxed with deep stretching practices that you do using your own body weight.

  • What if I can't silence the thoughts running through my mind during meditation?

Only try to relax and come back as soon as you realize you've lost focus. We can be in different moods at different times, and in this respect meditation may be more difficult than the physical side of yoga.
  • When can I see the physical effects of yoga?
    The time of occurrence of each effect also varies from body to body.

  • What are Pilates principles?
    The 6 PRINCIPLES OF THE PIILATE 1 -Centering: In the Pilates Method, the center is the circumference of the belly, waist and hips. It contains the muscular systems that hold the internal organs and the spine in place and allows the body to stretch and the muscles to lengthen. All work starts from the center and continues throughout the center. Joseph Pilates called this center "Your Power Center" (Power Belt). We work around the Center Line. Two straight lines pass perpendicular to this Center Line: shoulder to shoulder; and hip to hip. We call it Frame or Box. This framework centers the body in all action. 2 -Concentration: While doing Pilates, it is necessary to concentrate on the movements, to feel how the body works in harmony and which muscles are used and which are not. To take full advantage of the training, the exercises are executed with a focused concentration. It is the mind that guides the body. The exercises are not done randomly or on autopilot. We center the mind with the body in motion. We include five aspects of the mind in the work: intelligence, intuition, imagination, willpower, and memory. 3 -Control: Control is very important in the Pilates method. For control, it is necessary to rest the body well, to perform the movements as shown, to prevent possible injuries. When the work is done centrally and with full concentration, you are in control of the movements performed. We don't let habit - often wrong - or gravity dominate. Joseph Pilates called his method the "Art of Control Science. 4 - Precision : The exercises have been designed with the precise purpose of getting the full benefit from each exercise in mind. Movements should be done exactly, not vaguely. You must pay maximum attention to details. Movement sessions should be coordinated within and between each other. All exercises have a clear structure, precise form and optimal dynamics. Work with quality over quantity. 5 - Breathing: The breathing should be by taking a deep breath and blowing the whole breath out completely. Thus, the breath is completely emptied and the blood is cleansed. All exercises are performed with the rhythm of breathing. We breathe to the point of making an effort to send fresh oxygen to the muscles when they need it most. (This is not always a necessity, however.) We force exhalation by squeezing out all the stale air in the lungs "like squeezing a wet towel dry." Ensuring correct breathing and exhalation during the exercises ensures that the movements are performed in a controlled and safe manner. It is the breath that provides the mind and body integrity in Pilates. 6 – Flow : Movements should be done without haste, passing through each point one by one, but at the same time without hesitation. A full workout is a flowing series of exercises performed with strong dynamics. There is minimal movement, especially in transitions, for maximum flow.
  • Who is Joseph Hubertus Pilates?
    Joseph Hubertus PILATES, was born in 1883 in Mönchengladbach, Germany. He was a sickly child and had only one wish - to be healthy and strong. He soon became engaged in Far Eastern relaxation techniques as well as ancient Greek and Roman training methods. He was very curious and interested in the anatomy of the human body, analyzed the movements of animals and also practiced in various sports such as diving, skiing, wrestling and boxing. In 1912 he decided to immigrate to England to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional boxer. At the outbreak of the First World War, he spent time in captivity with other Germans. She worked as a male nurse at a camp on the Isle of Man, where she could apply her knowledge of the human body to treat injured and sick prisoners. He used metal springs that he fixed on hospital beds to work with them more effectively. This was the cornerstone of the development of the body fitness program he later called "Controlology". After the war, Joseph Pilates returned to Germany. Besides the Hamburg police, he coached many well-known private individuals, including Max Schmeling (1930 German heavyweight boxing champion), Mary Wigman (dancer and choreographer), and Rudolf von Laban (dance theorist), who later integrated the Pilates method. Joseph refused an offer to train the German army, instead emigrated to the United States in 1925. On the ship, he met his future wife, Clara, a trained nurse. Together they opened the first Pilates studio in New York. In the same building was the New York City Ballet under the direction of George Balanchine. Due to its success in training with dancers, Pilates was already well known in the dance scene. George Balanchine proclaimed Joseph the "genuis of the body." Continuing to take care of her patients throughout her life, Pilates has had the biggest impact on Ted Shawn, who worked on the dance committee, and Ruth St. He created and healed many injured dancers, such as Denis and George Balanchine. Having designed 500 specific exercises, Joe was an inventor who was constantly trying to create new exercise equipment. The five main tools of the exercise; He designed Reformer, Wunda Chair, Cadillac, Ladder Barrel, Spine Carrector and many other excellent equipment. He later modified these equipments, which he designed for himself, according to his patients. Many of the equipment Joe's first made are still operational. He wrote two books during his lifetime. The first of these was written in 1934; Your Health: A Corrective System of Exercising That Revolutionies the Entire Field of Physical Education is a masterpiece. The second book, Return to Life Through Contrology, was written in 1945. In the first paragraph of his book Life Return with Chronology, he wrote: 'Physical fitness is the first requirement for happiness. Our understanding of physical health; It is to reach and protect a body with a strong mind and equally developed, capable of doing our daily routine work in an easy and satisfying way with a sincere taste and pleasure.' After Joseph Pilates died of emphysema in 1967, Clara Pilates continued the studio alone. He soon received support from Romana Krysanowska, a former dancer and student of Josephʻs. After Clara's death, Romana took over the management of the studio. Romana Krysanowska has made it her mission in life to preserve and implement the authentic, classic Pilates method to this day. After the death of Joseph Hubertus Pilates, his students continued to teach his method in their own studios. In this process, pilates was divided into two main branches as traditional/classic pilates and modern pilates. While Classical Pilates adheres to Joe's teachings, Modern Pilates draws on the first generation of students who added on Joe's teachings. The name "Pilates" is not legally protected. Therefore, today there are various styles of Pilates. MamPilates offers you an authentic, classic workout. CONTROLLOGY METHOD is a physical, mental and spiritual training that creates balance in our lives. With the balance in our lives, we will be able to “achieve and maintain an equally developed body with a sound mind that can perform our daily tasks completely naturally, easily and adequately with sincere pleasure and satisfaction”. - JOSEPH HUBERTUS PILATES

  • I'm new to the fitness program. What should I pay attention to?
    Fitness Program Beginners Should Consider There are basic studies called adaptation program for beginners. These should not be exceeded and the body should not be overloaded. The thought of being overloaded and getting an early yield can lead to disability and problems in the person's body. Low-intensity exercises should be done, the intensity of the exercise should be increased gradually, and one should be patient. The ideal way to lose weight You shouldn't worry too much about how much you weigh. What you really need to be concerned about is how much of that weight is fat. When you want to lose weight by doing sports, your weight loss should not be by losing muscle and water, and the total calories you take should be less than the calories you give. Start an aerobic workout program. This should be an activity you enjoy doing. This need not necessarily be joining an aerobics group at a sports facility. Walking, cycling, swimming, skating, dancing, jumping rope, etc. can also replace it. It can also be any activity that can increase the heart rate and keep it within the useful exercise limit (at least 15 minutes). The longer the duration in this study, the more benefits you will get. Change what you eat. It would be more appropriate for you to eat more fruits, vegetables, chicken, rice, potatoes. l gr. fat = 9 calories, l gr. carbohydrate or protein = 4 calories. Don't be surprised by the slogan "95% FAT-FREE" for some foods, pay attention to how many calories come from fat. A 120-calorie food item may be considered low-calorie, but 9 gr. fat, 5 gr.protein and 5 gr. If it contains carbohydrates, it means that 70% of the product is fat. In addition, small and frequent meals throughout the day will accelerate the metabolism and will eliminate the feeling of "Hunger". The fact that your muscles gain both form and strength by working with certain programs also allows you to burn the calories you need to burn daily by the body more quickly and easily. For this purpose, Fitness programs are the most scientific and healthy way to reach your goal.
