Join David Lloyd Colchester and you can expect more than yoga classes. After you've rolled up your mat, explore our first-rate gym, enjoy a few lengths in our heated indoor and outdoor pools or simply make time for more relaxation in our spa. You can get some work done over a delicious coffee in our Clubroom, and try a different type of exercise class. Find out which type of membership will suit your lifestyle.
An Ashtanga class provides an energetic yoga workout, matching poses to breath in a dynamic flow. Benefits of the practice include increased mental clarity, and improved strength and balance.
A slower-paced session, you’ll hold postures for longer periods of time in Yin than other yoga classes. With a greater focus on meditation and reflection, you’ll leave feeling relaxed and revitalised.
One of the types of yoga we offer is Hatha. These classes aim to achieve balance between the body and the mind through the use of physical poses, breathing techniques, and meditation. Our Hatha sessions are designed to build mental and physical resilience, and maintain overall wellness.
Our yoga classes are open to members of all abilities and levels of experience, including total beginners, as our friendly teachers can adapt movements and poses.
Improve your posture and de-stress with yoga at David Lloyd Colchester. Our yoga classes will help to create balance in the body, developing both strength and flexibility. Research has also linked yoga to enhanced mood.
Yoga becomes even more beneficial as you move through life. A regular yoga practice can support everyday activities - expect improved posture, balance and flexibility after you start attending classes. Yoga provides a workout that's kind to your joints while still giving you real fitness results.
We also offer mat Pilates at David Lloyd Chigwell. There are similarities between yoga and Pilates, but one of the key differences is that unlike most styles of yoga, in Pilates you sometimes use resistance equipment as well as bodyweight.
Pilates focuses on strengthening the core, although it does include some flexibility work.
For any days when you can't make it to the club in person, you'll find a wide variety of yoga and Pilates classes on the David Lloyd Clubs app. Enjoy these sessions at home, on holiday - wherever you are, you never have to miss your yoga or Pilates fix. There are many other kinds of workout on there too, plus meditations for relaxation.
