What is PIYO

Live Streamed PIYO via Zoom

Class duration

45 minute class


PIYO is a fusion of Yoga and Pilates.  In its most common form it has been choreographed into a low impact cardio workout.

But I’m old school and years ago I was introduced to something called Yogalates which never really caught on mainstream.  It was described as “A brilliant combination of the gentle stretch of yoga and the core-building strength of Pilates, Yogalates is quite simply the perfect East meets West fitness answer for just about everyone”.  So if you take this brilliant combination and add a little pace, you could justifiable call it PIYO, which is exactly what I did. I’m not saying its unique, but its effective and accessible and safe.
