Discover the Key Differences between Yoga and Flex

Maybe you’ve seen on our Instagram that we offer more than just dance classes. But do you know the differences between Yoga and Flex? Although both practices aim to improve flexibility and promote well-being, they have different approaches that can cater to varied needs and preferences.

Let’s understand the unique characteristics of each one?

Differences between Yoga and Flex

Yoga:

Yoga is an ancient practice that combines physical exercises, conscious breathing, and meditation. Focused on the harmony between body and mind, Yoga offers a variety of styles, from the more tranquil and introspective, such as Hatha Yoga, to the more dynamic and challenging, such as Vinyasa (learn more about it here) or Power Yoga.

  • Mind-body connection: Yoga emphasizes the connection between mind, body, and spirit, promoting balance and mindfulness.
  • Flexibility and strength: Yoga postures (also called “asanas”) seek to improve flexibility while strengthening muscles and promoting stability.
  • Meditation and relaxation: In addition to the physical aspects, Yoga includes meditation and relaxation practices, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.

Flex:

On the other hand, Flex is a more modern approach to stretching and muscle strengthening. This practice emerged from contemporary dance and flexibility techniques used by athletes, and it’s a dynamic practice that combines stretching exercises with choreographed movements.

  • Dynamic flexibility: Flex prioritizes dynamic flexibility, using fluid movements and choreographies to increase range of motion. In other words, it’s a more active and enjoyable class, you know?
  • Muscle strengthening: In addition to stretching, Flex includes exercises aimed at strengthening muscles, especially those involved in flexibility. If you suffer from back pain, for example, Flex is an incredible option to improve this discomfort.
  • Body expression and creativity: As a form of dance, Flex allows for body expression and encourages creativity through choreographed sequences. It’s a way to move the body and develop coordination without even thinking twice.

In summary…

Although Yoga and Flex have different approaches, both activities offer significant benefits for the body and mind. If you’re looking for a practice more focused on mind-body connection and spirituality, Yoga might be the ideal choice. On the other hand, if your goal is to improve flexibility dynamically, creatively, and in the long term, Flex might be the perfect option for you.

The advantage is that here at Rabaterapia, we offer both modalities for you to try whenever you want. Both practices take place every Wednesday starting at 6 PM, and all you need to do is choose which one you want to try first and schedule your class. Cool, right?!
