It’s WORKOUT MONDAY. The journey continues from Days 1 to 4 (last week), working towards less sedation and more working it~
Day 5: Zumba @ Bolly Dancing
▷ Bolly’s power-packed instructor could rival the extremely bouncy & hyper Zumba teachers whose classes I attended in Melbourne/Sydney!! Despite the small studio size and an average student age in the 50s, the combined energy I felt from the teacher and students was explosive. The 12pm class was packed fyi – since I arrived late I had to stand at the sides. All in all, this makes me miss Zumba classes in Aussie!
Where: 261 Waterloo Street, 01-12 Waterloo Centre
Day 6: Pole Class @ Ecole de Pole
▷ Crashed the last class of a Beginner-Pole course and had soooo much fun! Couple of bruises didn’t really matter. Had the 6 week routine thrown at me on my first class with Ecole de Pole, and sadly I failed to execute the routine properly. Definitely going for more pole classes and aiming to gain upper arm strength to tackle those spins!
Day 6: Bollywood Fitness @ Physical Abuse
▷ Instructor Sandeep is amazing. I think I might love Bollywood dance as much as hip hop, since essentially the moves engages your core the way it is required in most hip hop techniques. The song choice was fun, and the moves were apt. All of his students are regulars and I know why! Again, I crashed a regular class who had learnt a large part of the choreography. Loved this place! The showers and lockers are so clean and neat.
Day 7: Yin Yang 75 @ Anahata Yoga
▷Yogi James led us into extremely deep stretches and paced breathing which I felt was exactly what I needed at 10am on a rainy Monday morning. I love that he aims to push himself and his students to the limit, which really inspired me to keep going each time I felt like my arms/legs were giving way. Situated in a really lovely shophouse in a backalley at Arab St, this is one hideout you would definitely miss unless you’re looking for it. Its enigma is a major bonus. Also a plus point: hot showers, clean toilet and decent lockers.
Loving this routine so far.
