|Shannon (front) and Natalie|
We booked via an easy online system that ensures the class doesn't exceed the maximum number of participants. With around 8 of us, plus mats and the barre, this feels like the ideal number. It also meant our instructor, Shannon, could keep an eye on our technique and make suggestions or corrections discreetly.
If I had to find a gripe - which I don't, but bear with me - it would only be that I indicated my vulnerable hip condition and there were several moves I couldn't comfortably (or safely) do that I wasn't offered an alternative for. This is my fault though, as I assured Shannon at the start that I would modify as I needed to PLUS Shannon knows that I instruct Ballet Sculpt and instructing instructors isn't a fun prospect for anyone.
favourite move was the tricep push-ups followed by a modified "Scorpion" move from yoga.
