Robbin Castillo

Yoga Flex & Calisthenics trainer

Yoga flex
In this yoga class we will focus on  the flexibility of the body and the observer of your being. We will use different techniques of stretching, combined with breathing and meditation. You will leave the class in a very peaceful state and with an open, strong, mobile body. This class is perfect after an intense workout.

Calisthenics is a form of physical training focused on teaching you to master your own bodyweight using minimal equipment.

The word calisthenics comes from the ancient Greek words kallos, which means "beauty" or "beautiful" (to emphasize the aesthetic pleasure that derives from the perfection of the human body), and sthenos, meaning "strength" (great mental strength, courage, strength and determination). It is the art of using one's bodyweight as resistance in order to develop physique. We will mainly use the floor, wall, bars and rings for our workout.
