I (D.) am moving. So all my habits are in flux. Perhaps the worst feeling a lady of habit can have. I am also moving away from all my fitness classes, and in particular Gregory–the Sarah Lawrence-trained modern dancer with a strong Brooklyn accent who teaches pilates. Not to brag BUT Gregory asked me this week if I am a pilates instructor. That is right. I have achieved all I ever wanted in life. I’m done. Mic drop.
But Gregory the pilates instructor, and Vincent the kickboxing instructor no longer will carry me through my week. Fortunately I have discovered Yoga with Adriene, the yoga instructor on Youtube who speaks in a soft, but but lilting manner, sending ASMR shivers through me as I downdog.
Most importantly, she is a very trustworthy instructor, achieving that perfect blend of Sanskrit word-dropping and physiological know-how.
