My friend and colleague Alison Foster (check out her blog Foster Fitness) has been hard at work becoming a certified Intensati instructor. Intensati is a blend of yoga, martial arts, aerobics, and meditation. Foster’s nearly there; all she has left is leading a few practice classes to refine her technique, and given my love of new things I couldn’t help but jump at the chance to join her.
For Foster’s first class we did the WarriorSati routine. “Group fitness” has never really been my thing (read: classes) but this was fun and interesting. There is a definite meditative component to the positive reinforcement chanting you do while shaking your butt. If you like aerobics classes you may really enjoy the affirmation aspect of Intensati. For now I think I’ll stick with yoga and meditation for my karmic needs and running and cycling for cardio. Check out Foster Fitness to keep up with Alison; she’s always got product reviews and positive juju.
