This morning I had zero sleep. I still got up at 5:30am thanks to a non-planned alarm that I could not snooze. By 7:30 am I had made my green juice and had added cucumber this time. It still doesn’t blend well! Perhaps my blender isn’t strong enough, it’s just paste. With crunch. Nevertheless, I moved on and started drinking it as early at 7:30am getting ready with my group class at Real Pilates Studio.
The studio had booked me an 8:45am class with Elisha, Pilates Core. I thought, brilliant. No crazy movement this early morning especially since I have not slept. Little did I know!
It’s safe and maybe not lady like of me to say but Elisha kicked my ass with her methods. Slow and subtle yet so effective. My legs were shaking, my stomach was screaming, I have woken up the dead!
What I can safely say is that Elisha took her time passing through each and every single one of us 13. She made sure we were doing the right moves, maintaining our posture and not collapsing. It’s a tough job to do that and I have not seen any other studio that have instructors passing bye one by one. Their excuse is, well we cannot. Then why are we paying 65dh (in other studios is 75dh+) per class and doing the posture wrong? What would be the benefit in that? I was so happy to see her going around and genuinely caring for her students.
9:45 am could not come any sooner. 60 minutes and I secretly let out a sign of relief that it was over, as much as I have enjoyed it. Walking out though, I felt energized and well stretched. I might have needed that actually, then I bump into Delinda and she merely suggests we do another session together… I was up for it but unfortunately the class was full… Until tomorrow then. For now, I hang on to my green juice and head back home to shower the dripping sweat I worked on!
