Tuesday I woke up bright and early to head down to Soho for a Pilates Class at the Rebecca Minkoff store. I absolutely love everything Rebecca Minkoff from her clothes to her bags, so when I got the opportunity to go to this event, I had to say yes.
The class started at 9am and being that I am on vacation from work and school it was a struggle to get out of bed but I’m glad I made it. When I first got there I was greeted with the choice of water or pressed juice and of course I opted for the juice from Pressed Juicery. I went with the flavor Citrus 2 which is made with apple, mint, lemon and pineapple, the flavor was impeccable, the mint definitely gives it a great refreshing taste.
We were led by the amazing Arianna Henry an instructor at New York Pilates, it was my first real Pilates class so I was a little nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. However the class was great Arianna led the hour long class by starting with breathing techniques and throughout the class made it subsequently more challenging.
I got a full body workout and used a lot of smaller muscles I don’t normally use while doing my other workouts. This experience made me want to incorporate Pilates into my regular workout routine, I love how it targets smaller muscle groups and really focuses on form and not intensity so much its a great mix up from some of the workouts I do now.
