Special Report: Cy-Yo
A new class is popping up in Boston area gyms taking a whole new spin on yoga, and it's just in time; bathing suit season is right around the corner.
For some people this is a real workout… for others -- this is the key to staying fit…
But aerobics instructor Curt Dalton has come up with a way to have the best of both worlds, combining spin class with yoga. He call's it Cy-Yo.
"Cy-Yo is a one hour holistic cardio workout"
The class begins with 10 minutes of beginner yoga… warming up your body and stretching it out for what's to come... 40 minutes of heart pumping cycling.
Curt Dalton - Founder, Cy-Yo
"You can put the two together and give people flexibility as well as a good cardio work out. You have your fat burn as well as a you know the elongating the muscles."
Throughout the cycling portion, yoga breathing and stretching is constantly pushed.
And it’s not over yet...40 minutes on the bike, and then you’re off for more yoga
"We try to bring the mind body and soul into the workout."
And it’s catching on…. giving yoga lovers a harder work out and giving spinners a new way of warming up and cooling down.
John Gray - Spinner
"It’s great I love it, because after doing spinning your muscles are really tense so its good to warm up your muscles before you spin and then afterwards it’s a good stretching."
Laurie Gilligan - Spinner
"It’s amazing because spinning is so strenuous and the yoga kind of just stretches you out."
Cy-Yo is available in a handful of Boston area gyms right now.
