THE BOOGIE METHOD…
Class begins with a postural ‘CHECK IN’ and warm up. We bring awareness to our bodies and alignment, consciously switching on the muscles. As a result, we forget the stresses and strains of our day and prepare our body to BOOGIE!
Our BOOGIE interval cardio section finishes with our ALMIGHTY POWER BOOSTER! This HIGH INTENSITY interval track is designed to take you one step closer to absolute maximum effort. The one we LOVE to HATE! It takes us way beyond our comfort zone using principles of HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING or HIIT. In other words, we work in cycles of peak and recovery for 4 to 5 minutes. As a result, it sends the metabolism into over drive creating that wonderful AFTER BURN effect. Consequently, you continue to burn calories LONG after you have hung up your BOOGIE shoes!
Moving onto our low impact conditioning section, this is what makes BOOGIE EFFECT unique. We use the technical training of professional dancers as our inspiration to tone & strengthen the whole body. Firstly, moving away from the big power muscles of the body, we bring the focus inward, strengthening the whole body from the inside out. Secondly, with a strong focus on core strength and stability, we use basic dance technique exercises (e.g. plie, port de bras, arabesque) to strengthen the deep stabilizing muscles of the body, leaving it longer, leaner, stronger and balanced. Class finishes with a wonderful stretch to strengthen and lengthen the body and leave you feeling centred and recovered.
As a result, you will awaken muscles you didn’t even know existed!
Adding wrist or hand weights are optional to increase the challenge level.
The POWER of DANCE goes way beyond the physical. At BOOGIE EFFECT we promote and celebrate the powerful effects dance has on, not only our brain power but also our Mental Health. Importantly, dance has the ability to build and strengthen neuro-pathways in the brain like no other form of exercise. Dance is commonly used as a form of therapy with Parkinsons and Alzheimer suffers, for example.
BOOGIE EFFECT brings together all the fun of BOOGIE with all the EFFECTS and benefits of dance based training into one FUN and EFFECTIVE workout. Release your inner disco diva and groove yourself to a fitter, healthier you with the easy to follow BOOGIE moves and pop-tastic tunes that make BOOGIE EFFECT so addictive.
Walk TALLER, look STRONGER, get FITTER and feel HAPPIER!
