So, it has been a while since I have posted, but I promise I have been hustling! I just finished my 2-week trial at Revolution Studio in River Oaks and here is what I have learned:
- I have NO rhythm … and that is completely OKAY
- My body can do more than I think it is capable of.
- I have a new appreciation and complete LOVE for yoga.
- Cycling is NOTHING like I expected it to be.
- People are NICE 🙂
- I am sad now …
1 – I always thought I had pretty good rhythm, but put me on a bike and ask me to pedal to a beat and it’s like the beat in my head and the beat everyone else is listening to is COMPLETELY different. What I loved about the classes though were how the instructors and other participants didn’t care! No one made fun of me. No one judged me. It was such a friendly, high-fiving, encouraging environment. Throughout the class the instructor continually says something along the lines of “one pack that rides together” and I love that comradery.
I took classes with Zach, John, Stephanie, Ally, Kris and Kristina. Kristina and Stephanie were my favorite!
2 – There were so many times in yoga where I looked at the instructor and was like, “Yeah … Noooo. I can’t do that.” And then I did it! It may not have looked as clean or poised, but it didn’t even matter because my body did something my mind didn’t think it could do!
3 – Yoga will now be in my weekly, if not daily practice. I loved the feeling I had of freedom after yoga, complete freedom and release from the stress of the day.
4 – I mentioned this in my previous ‘Revolution Ride’ post, but cycling is nothing like I expected. It is sooo much fun and although it completely drains me, it also completely energizes me.
5 – Everyone I met at Revolution, from the people at the front desk to the instructors to the members, everyone was just so nice and approachable. I truly felt like each instructor was working specifically with just me and really wanted the best for me. Revolution treats you like family.
6 – Now I am sad. Why? Because my 2 week trial is up and although I want to continue going, and will most likely be back for some more classes in the future, I really do need to move on and try some new places to blog about.
All in all I went to 7 cycling classes and 7 yoga classes in 2 weeks. Wish I could have made even more classes but it’s time to move on to new adventures. I will, however, be participating in Revolution’s Grow Your Flow Workshop on July 30th at 1:30PM. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.revolution-studio.com for more info.
