At Matalan Direct, we know modern families. Busy lives filled with family commitments and everyday jobs, juggling careers and jam-packed social calendars can leave very little ‘me time’, let alone time to exercise! To help you squeeze in some home fitness, we’ve teamed up with celebrity trainer and fitness guru, Niki Wibrow to create Bath Yoga, a convenient and relaxing exercise solution.
The bathroom is a place that anyone can take time out from the world, and as one of the most used rooms in the house it is the perfect place to incorporate fitness into your everyday life - without an expensive gym membership.
The combination of warm water and the routines created by Niki, who has trained the likes of actor Zoe Lucker and Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, will soothe your tired muscles. Take a minute to imagine the sweet and steamy air that will enhance your breathing and allow you to stretch out the tension of the day.
Don’t just take our word for it, follow Niki in action in the videos below. You’ll be perfecting your Vinyasa flows, enhancing your fitness and flexibility in no time!
Always follow expert advice when practicing Bath Yoga. These routines have been especially designed by Niki Wibrow for Matalan Direct to offer safe yoga options for the bathroom. Be mindful of slippery surfaces and take necessary precautions to ensure your safety. If you are pregnant, disabled or are suffering from an inury, always consult a doctor before undertaking any form of exercise.
