Running around from here to there, running a business, running a household and running the kids to soccer practice and ballet! We seem to be running a lot these days… and it’s really quite exhausting.
One of the biggest complaints I get from my customers is ” I’m always so darned tired!” People are drained, running on ” empty” and running after themselves but never quite catching up.
I don’t know when we all got so busy. 24/7 and we’re ON all the time. When’s the last time you sat down with a good book, cup of hot chocolate or took a nice bath, scented with candles on? How about a massage or even a stroll through nature- guilt free?
I honestly think it’s these little pockets of pleasure that feed and re-energize us. But we tend to push them away, leave that (and ourselves) for last, as we push through our daily duties and responsibilities.
“Oh yeah, I must get around to it” a well-versed phrase…
And we go on… persevere, tough, stoic..
And one day we break. Physically, mentally or both.
Joints squeak, muscles strain and heads ache. And it’s all downhill from there. All tasks become drudgery, life is tedious “moeten moeten” instead of joyful!
One of the things I loooove about being able to teach (still!!) Pilates is giving people “the permission” to relax, breathe, feel … and nourish themselves (mind & body) for 1-2 hours a week.
My people have a found a certain source of vitality with roundedness by blocking off and respecting their quality time. With the on-going barrage of our hectic lives it’s almost an oasis to be able to legitimately pull out of the noise and chaos and come be with yourself for an hour of fun, empowerment and “you time”.
The clients here look forward to their “Pilates” (or Jazz) night and always leave refreshed, calm yet vitalized and happy. Some have told me “it saves them… it re-news them” and they can go back to take on the challenges and responsibilities with vigor and more clarity. How cool is that?
If you think you’d like to spend some time renewing, why not contact Katja on 0611173713 to see if Pilates can make a change for you and your life too! Come yummify yourself!!
