Breather recently has made its way to Boston. Breather is an app and platform where you can book private spaces for meetings, lunch dates with friends, a spot to relax and whatever else you want! I used Breather while working remotely to escape from the craziness of coffee shops, but I really wanted to try to think of a fun and different way to use the spaces related to fitness.
If you haven’t noticed, I am trying to really focus on getting back to running. One way that I am doing that is to make sure that I’m incorporating a variety of classes into my routine. Two types that are particularly important are yoga and Pilates. I knew that these two workouts were important to running but I wanted to learn more about exactly why. This inspired me to host two running workshops with Meg from Exercise Your Beauty in a Breather space.
Meg is a not only a clinical exercise physiologist but also a yoga, spinning and Pilates instructor. She is Physical Mind Institute (PMI) trained, which falls underneath modern Pilates. Classical will never stray from Pilates’ original formatting and structure but PMI will modify based on scientific studies. Because I come from a science background myself, I was excited to hear what Meg had to teach.
Of course there is so much more to learn but here are a few of the important lessons I learned and got to test out in her class!
