Day 3 – A group class

Day 3 – A group classLike0

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!

A demain!

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post πŸ’•
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... πŸ’•[Click link in bio to read the full article] πŸ’•.
