I woke up exhausted from having biked the previous day and needed a class that was going to rejuvenate me before heading into work.  Mondays are one of the worst and busiest days in the hospital.  My co-worker Sheah is usually in charge in the emergency room on Monday, and we have come to coin the term “SheahMondays” as this day of complete and organized chaos.   She’s an amazing nurse who takes care of business which makes her perfect for Mondays during the winter months.  I worked the previous Monday and it was stressful and exhausting, so when the following Monday arrived, I knew I needed to find time to take care of myself prior to heading into my shift.  I woke up early and looked on my Classpass account and Bluewater Pilates with Libby was available so I immediately seized the opportunity to sign up.  I have taken her previous classes and love the aura she exudes when she teaches.  The classes at Bluewater are small and personalized, taking a maximum of 5 students per class, which is great for pilate beginners.  This gives the instructor time to work with each student to ensure proper alignment in order to achieve maximum results.  There have been some pilates classes I have taken that concentrate solely on muscle control and endurance, but what I love about Bluewater pilates is that they incorporate more stretching exercises at the end of class.  It’s the perfect combination of pilates and yoga and prepares me mentally and physically before I head into SheahMondays.
