The fitness industry is booming. With so many options to choose from, here are the ones that really grab my attention as fun, effective, and worthwhile classes to try. I am already a yogi, and I see nice complements in each of these to build on to a practice I already enjoy.
  1. The Soteria Method
    Featured in the NYT, this is a self defense method designed specifically for women that teaches empowerment and self awareness. It redefines self defense as "creating, loving, and protecting a life you love." I can get behind that. Plus, the founder is a total badass. 👊🏼 http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/15/fashion/high-heels-self-defense.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&smid=nytcore-iphone-share
  2. PureBarre/Physique57
    I'm new to the Barre scene, but I love that it is designed to train you like a dancer. Just need to find classes nearby...
  3. Classical Ballet
    As a not-so-great and shy dancer, I would love to try ballet and learn some graceful moves. Plus I'm into classical music and all things proper, so I'm ready.
  4. Ballroom Dance
    Always been interested. I love watching my grandparents dance and am transfixed by all those ballroom dance movies. Partner dance just looks so fun, you don't even realize you're exercising. First step: find a partner. Interested in Latin styles and swing, mostly 💃🏻
  5. Tennis
    I played in high school. Time to get back at it. A lifetime sport, and one where you do short sprints but it doesn't feel like torturous running. Plus I had a mean serve back in the day. 🎾
