A mixed group of BRT members started our first BRT pilates session with our very own confident tutor Katy Stewart. Most of us had not embarked upon this type of regime before and we were all unusually quiet!
It is harder than I thought, coordinating breathing with controlled muscular and skeletal movements is not easy but we all persevered. Katy was patient and hands on. She gave clear instructions interspersed with analogies and gentle injections of humour. The time sped on and I couldn't believe that an hour had passed.
Roll on next week.
I was however perplexed that Katy spoke of 'the cushion'....do not be misled. It is a hard block of foam and most uncomfortable!
