What Is Yoglates?



Yoglates is a combination of calisthenics, yoga, and Pilates. It consists of a series of movements derived from these different styles to give a complete cardiovascular, strength, stretching and balancing workout. These poses and movements are designed to work the lymphatic as well as the internal organs of the body in combination with the skeletal and muscular structure of the entire physique.

No better time to start than Today! You’re never to old or young to add this amazing practice to your life. Trust me, after practicing Yoglates 2 several times per week you’ll soon ask yourself why didn’t I start this sooner?

All you need is an open mind, yoga mat & water.
Feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions!

Experience

You will experience numerous benefits once you start practicing: stress relief, increase in core strength, and a longer and leaner body. Just to name a few! You can easily burn up to 700 calories in one class!

INCLUSIVE

You never know who might be on a mat next to you! It isn’t uncommon for our studio to be filled with members ranging from 12 years to 78 years old. Our members are from all ages, lifestyles and shapes. We have high school, college and professional athletes, car–pool Moms, and workaholic Dads!

PREPARE

You’ll want to bring a Yoga mat, water bottle, towel and an open mind! Dress in something you feel good in and will be comfortable moving the body in many different positions.

What To EXPECT?

“Just When you thought you were in SHAPE?”

No matter the shape you’re in or may not be in, this is for you! Often times, people think they need to get in shape first before trying Yoglates 2. This is not true! Everyone starts from the beginning no matter what shape you’re in. We never master this; the body will always continue to challenge us.

This is, quite simply, the single most effective use of one’s time for anybody wanting the total body workout.

One Yoglates 2 class is equivalent to:

  • Connector.

    60 minutes of resistance training.

  • Connector.

    60 minutes of cardiovascular training

  • Connector.

    60 minutes of stretching.

April Hill

A small-town girl, April Hill always dreamed of opening her own business. That dream was realized when she opened Yoglates 2 South in October, 2010. April’s passion and practice of Yoglates became her dream job as she and her husband Roy opened the location only 11 weeks after the birth of her second child. April’s faith, values, outgoing personality, genuine approach, background in aesthetics, and appreciation for the human body, mind, and spirit are what separates Yoglates 2 South from all other fitness venues.

Community advocate and people lover, April is passionate about many things. It is easy to see her love and appreciation for her city, state, and all things southern. April promotes and designs custom classes and events to give back to the community. These specialized classes have been hosted at her own studio as well as locations within the community. This outreach has increased awareness and raised money for the following organizations: The Bella Bowman Foundation, Gateway Horsemanship Therapy, The Corey Webster Foundation, The St. Lillian Foundation, Thrive, HP Serve, Hope House, and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at Our Lady of the Lake.

April is proud to be involved in the community and has been recently recognized for her community contributions. Some of those recent acknowledgements include 2014 Baton Rouge’s Business Report Top 40 under 40 and 2016 American Cancer Society Baton Rouge’s Best Dressed. April is also frequently asked to speak at events around Baton Rouge, and is a regular presenter at PROPEL Women Baton Rouge.

April’s career highlights have been many but she has a special spot in her heart for teaching and influencing the younger generations the value in starting your healthy lifestyle journey early. She was a high school athlete and enjoys sharing her passion of Yoglates to many cheer and athletic programs in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. April states, “Watching high school and professional athletes participate in our program and achieve success in their chosen fields is very fulfilling. Watching one local high school team that is committed to our program win a state championship was definitely a highlight of my career so far.”
