It’s okay to be out of your comfort zone just a little bit… right?
Miss V loves her job, loves teaching Kettlebells, Personal Training, triathlon (not so much the running bit though) but being self-employed I can’t sit still, I need to keep developing. Delivering what people want.
I attended a weekend course mid October on Freestyle Fitness Yoga – it really wasn’t what I was expecting. I do have high expectations, and this didn’t even come close. I learned some stuff but just not enough to deliver a successful Stretch and Relax class that would be up to my standard. So, I have had to use my knowledge, my ability, research and plenty of home study to deliver a great Stretch and Relax class.
Stretch and Relax – this really isn’t me. Or should I rephrase that, it really wasn’t me. I have too much energy to calm down
I don’t do slow. I do cardio. I like to workout.
It’s something I have always dismissed. I do a little bit of stretching after exercising but just not enough. I know it’s important. But let’s admit, who really does enough stretching?
I have been practising Stretch and a little bit of relax at least 3-4 times a week over the last month. I have noticed a massive difference. My flexibility has improved greatly. My standing strength in some of the postures is strong. I have also noticed the range of motion in my hips has improved and my range of movement doing squats has improved. I have actually seen the benefits of regular stretching and I actually quite enjoy it!
On Tuesday, a few of my Kettlebell class stayed behind as my guinea pigs so that I could practise my forthcoming Stretch and Relax class. It’s so different to teaching Kettlebells. I felt out of my comfort zone – I was nervous. I delivered my class. It was a fun class – that’s what I want it to be. I don’t feel I need to be the best in everything I do. We are all very different especially when it comes to range of movement.
So, on Tuesday 6 November my Stretch and Relax launches, 17 people already registered – no pressure Miss V. I have 3 days left to practise and deliver the best class I possibly can.
No luck needed.. .I am prepared!
