Hello! Hope everyone had a nice weekend! Originally I was going to do a recap of the festival I went to but I think I will save that for tomorrow! This morning was the finale of the intenSati Warrior Challenge so I will talk about that instead! The challenge was to attend 4 intenSati classes a week and2 of the classes had to be 6:30 am classes! I was not technically in the challenge because I had already done one in January. Luckily the instructors were nice enough to let me on their guest list every single week this month! I ended up going to 3 or 4 classes a week so they ended up inviting me to attend the 2-hour finale!
The class started at 6:30 this morning at Columbus Circle. I found Mari and our new friend Jenny inside the subway! Jenny is also a fellow Queens girl. We walked in and immediately started taking tons of pictures!
Jenny and Me!
Please excuse my gym outfit. I was not home this weekend to do laundry so I have no workout clothes left!
Me and Mari!
Next we found the fabulous Norn! It is always the same couple of people that get to class super early! I loved the morning classes because we all got to know each other before every class!
Norn is an amazing artist! You must check out some of his work: Norn’s Island .
Next we found Tiffany! I’ve met so many amazing people from this challenge!
Of course we had to take a picture with our teacher Natalia! She is our idol!
The class began and Patricia said that Natalia would start us off, Darbi would lead the middle of the class, and Patricia would end the class. It was so cool having all of the teachers there!
The class was extra intense!
Here is a little sample of the class!
After over an hour of intense cardio and some relaxing yoga moves, we got into a big circle. We went around and talked about what we got out of the challenge. Patricia video taped us! There were a lot of tears in the room. The class helped a lot of people to love their body and life in general. The entire morning was so inspiring. I said that the class made me a happier person all day. So true! I found myself singing all of the affirmations every second of the day!
We got awesome Lululemon tank tops at the end! Love it!
It was an amazing month and wonderful end to the challenge. In other news, I decided to join Equinox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!! I got a really good deal and could not pass it up! I had to decide by July 31st to take advantage of the deal. I’ve been debating in my head for weeks now. I just had to do it. I probably can’t afford it but it is so worth it to go somewhere that makes me happy every day. I need intenSati in my life and they offer so many other great classes. So happy! I canceled NYSC today. They need a month’s notice which sucks but I got a month free at Equinox so I won’t be wasting too much money. It will be worth every penny! Now I can put my mind at rest for a while!
Last but not least, Mari brought me her crack muffins today. I ate both for breakfast! Thanks Mari!
I am currently in a Lite Choice using their internet so I better go! My time is running out! Have a great night!!
