From the mindful movements of yoga to the high-energy intensity of boxing, let’s explore Shoreham’s varied fitness scene. 


1. Yoga  

Yoga is one of the best practices for improving strength, balance, and flexibility, with the added benefits of stress reduction, improved sleep, and pain relief. Whether you prefer the gentle flow of Hatha, the strength-building aspects of Vinyasa, or the meditative focus of Kundalini, Shoreham's yoga scene has it all - and what better place to find your zen than against the calming backdrop of the coastline? At Wharf 21, The Yoga & Wellness Rooms are a short 8-minute stroll away, offering a generous timetable of various types of yoga, from beginner’s to advanced. 


2. Pilates  

Often combined with yoga, pilates is a stronger practice and a form of strength training that targets muscles you probably had forgotten were there. It is rising in popularity as one of the best all-round workouts that get your heart rate up via controlled, low-impact movements that may include light weights and bursts of cardio, sculpting strong, lean muscles. Pilates by Sea in Shoreham is a supportive environment for all abilities to improve their fitness and develop a strong, balanced physique with the guidance of a highly experienced instructor. 


3. Boxing

4. Dance  

Dancing is underrated in the world of fitness classes, but there’s no better way to get your heart rate up, build strength, and develop a range of motion than expressing yourself through movement and music! Ballet, for example, builds incredible strength and flexibility, while tap and jive are a great way to get that all-important cardio in without having to pound the pavement.
