Workout Wednesday: Nova

A yoga and pilates fusion

The Concept: Would you prefer the spirituality of yoga and pilates remained a mystery? Does a workout soundtracked by the Stone Roses and Beyoncé sound more appealing than one accompanied by the tinkle of chimes? Try Nova. It’s a fast-paced fluid workout that fuses the physical aspects of yoga and pilates.

The 60-minute workout comprises varied exercise sequences choreographed to music. Moves to improve strength flexibility, balance, co-ordination and muscle tone are all incorporated but the traditional elements (meditation and the emphasis on breathing and introspection) are left out.
