NOT YET; NOT YET!
“But, I’m so worn out.”
Sleep when you go home!
“Can I have a drink of water?
When we have finished.
“Can you please put on the A/C?”
Not good for you and your result.
Oh, and by-the-way, please discontinue the (time-wasting) talking!! JEEZ!!
It’s true, though. Even enlightened individuals make such lame attempts to de-intensify their workout…..that they PAY FOR! What can be more incongruous?
Look, I know (more than most) that exercising is a big challenge to get through sometimes. (Good for you for even showing up!) But, in the end, we must all accept the responsibility for our individual health.
STOP TRYING TO GET OUT OF IT!!
Some instructors will let you slide. Don’t let them let you. Demand your money’s worth!
“Is it ever too much? The intensity of the work-out, I mean.”
Not really. The Method is actually, specifically designed to provide an ever-ascending physical journey. One can only advance by degrees (if trained properly).
“Does this imply that a dilution of the Pilates experience will coincide with time-wasting/talking/taking a breather/etc.?”
Unfortunately, yes. It’s a simple matter of fact. There is only so much time in life to exercise in our attempt to slow the aging process. That same time can be tempered one way or another, toward, or away from, Maximum Potency.
The achieving of perfection is not the point (or even a possibility); the striving for perfection is.
And I’m gonna make you do it.
YES, YES, YES ,YES, YES, YES, YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!
