After a long run of nonstop fitness classes, I decided it was time for a rest day…in the form of a Sunday morning hot yoga-Pilates combo class (that’s what happens when you’re addicted to fitness). Before heading out to this studio for the first time, I did some research and saw that they don’t offer the yoga-lates class at the time I had signed up for. Instead, the 10:45 was an advanced Pilates Sculpt class, NOT something I wanted on my rest day.

Doing a Pilates reformer class has always been on my bucket list but I’ve never had the guts to try it. Anything requiring use of a special machine makes me nervous because I hate looking like I have no idea what I’m doing (who am I kidding, I still look like that after 10 cardio barre classes).
