Did anyone make the sexy beetroot recipe(?)..it was again a big lunchtime hit! It was an amazing day for Pink Ribbon Pilates and the 18 all showed up and enjoyed it immensely. The event brings together all of us who attend the weekly pilates class and give us a chance to work side-by-side, chat and laugh together, which brings us closer as a group. Sue (retired school teacher), a member who has been with us since the start in February 2013, was fantastic in making the bunting, little lavendersewnsewn hanging thingys as a thank you gift to the treatment women and those who give their time, and she created the time sechedule for the treatment people, which was 6 clients each in 40 minute time slots during the day.
The women who paid to attend were perfect, they really revelled in it, even if they were a bit skeptical of receiving a indian head massage or hearing about cannabis oil, from Robert Phipps, the international body language expert, who is convinced it can help all of us. Had a slight panic late Friday afternoon, when I spoke to the yoga teacher Hannah who told me she and her young daughter were diagnosed with hand, foot and mouth disease so I needed to get a replacement last minute. Strangely enough, my girlfriend who was to teach Pilates called me just as I found out, she is also qualified in yoga, so she taught yoga session and I taught the Pilates, so that worked out. The food was fantastic and the Tunisian cauliflower frittata recipe that I baked was terrific and was the best chocolate cake recipe was once again a hit, very rich. And OMG, the woman who does the singing for health, was so on point, and was mesmerized by her teaching style, her passion for singing and how she got a room of women up and singing beautifully almost immediately and the first thing she said was, alright, who really does not want to be here and off they went. She is a big wheel in this country initiative, here she is leading a group on the cover photo of this pdf report that she helped produced. The UK is the leader in singing for health and it does work. The best was at the end, a truly amazing gong sound bath, that everyone present, felt and had excellent results with; feeling relaxed, clear headed, one women told me she went back to the womb and many want to do it again. The vibrations of the experience, shifted everyone to a new and relaxing level - it really does change you. The weather was meh and had a light shower just as we broke for lunch, the Tram Hatch gardens in full, lovely aromatic bloom and as always one does here, we ignored it and carried on. Needless to say, I was shattered at the end of yesterday and filled with gratitude for the experience.
New day and I'm up and off in a bit to teach Pilates at Champneys Spa and developing a little core of Sunday regulars as this class started in May.
Have terrific Sunday everyone!
