Fletcher Pilates at UP Pilates Studio by Brenda Lim

Fletcher Pilates at UP Pilates Studio by Brenda Lim



So this morning, the first order of the day, living a #Travelife, was a much-needed private Pilates session with Brenda Lim at UP Pilates, which I think is the best Pilates studio in the country.

It has a complete set of Pilates equipment and it's very private. When you book a session with Brenda, it's just you and her in the studio and so you don't have to share the space with other teachers or students.



Some people may think I'm being overly fussy, wanting to have an entire studio to myself, as many other Pilates studios do offer one-on-one with teachers but you've got to share the studio with other teachers and their students.

MENTAL AND PHYSICAL EXERCISE

But it really does wonders for the concentration to do Fletcher Pilates, especially as I find that Pilates is not only a physical exercise but also a form of meditation or mental yoga.

It's fantastic and ever so relaxing having a two-in-one session for someone like myself who is so time-poor, but it's impossible to be in a state of meditation if someone in the same studio is talking about what they did last weekend or where they're headed next year for vacation -- and you just can't help overhearing their conversation.

A MUCH-NEEDED STRETCH

Today I felt like my whole body had been stretched.

It's an incredibly personalised session so you can tell Brenda what you need or want, or what you wish to accomplish, and then she works out a program for you.

Those who go regularly also have their own more structured programs, but I'm not one of those lucky ones able to go every week as I'm more often in an airplane than in a Pilates studio. So when I'm able to book a session, I simply tell Brenda my wish-list.

My wish-list includes an instantly toned body after 60 minutes, by the way; but Brenda just laughs when I say this.
