Honestly Healthy at Beach Blanket Babylon

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to kick some serious butt Pilates style at an event run by the amazing Natasha Corrett of Honestly Healthy. Taking place in the gorgeous surroundings of Beach Blanket Babylon in Shoreditch myself and fellow Bootcamp Pilates Instructor Mr Nick Walker were given free reign to introduce the attendees to our concept of HIIP (thats High Intensity Interval Pilates don’t you know!!)

Those lucky enough to nab a spot for the day were treated to a delicious healthy brunch from Natasha’s cook book, all based on the principles of alkaline eating.

But first they needed to get through an intense hour long workout Bootcamp Style!!

A big space and pillars just begs for handstands!! (I may have been caught by a quizzical waiter on his way to the staff room!!)

We divided the class off into High Intensity sections (taken by bad Cop Nick) along side more traditional mat based Pilates exercises to fire up the core, waist and glutes to really help everyone feel the burn!!

Check out my favourite feedback of the day –

“your so little and smiley I was looking forward to your section for a rest but then you started and I realised your mean!!!”

For some of those who were expecting a relaxing stretch and a little breathing on the mat they were in for a shock!
