Crossfit, Yoga, MMA & Muay Thai
Up until I discovered free fitness trials a couple years ago, paying to work out had always sounded steadfastly absurd to me.
Why spend silly amounts on an overpriced gym membership when you could attempt yoga from the comforts of home, guided by a YouTube video?
Or clock a workout using your ActiveSG credits?
If you’re determined to get fit(ter) this 2020, though, these are the best money-can’t-buy fitness trials to test your stamina with.

Meantime, here’s our complete round-up of free trials at gyms and fitness studios for your picking.
For the uninitiated, crossfit combines gymnastics, endurance and weight-lifting with HIIT. While popular gyms like UFIT Singapore and F45 Training only offer paid trials, there are three where you’ll be able to work up a sweat for free.
Trial length: One 30-min introductory class
No UFIT trial, no problem: CrossFit is your outdoor playground of an answer, aided by the support of a nutrition team. A focus is also placed on Fundamentals classes, in which workouts are adapted based around an individual’s existing injuries.
220 Turf Club Rd | +65 6225 5059
Monday to Friday 6am to 8pm | Saturday & Sunday 8am to 11am
Trial length: One 60-min class
With a complete focus on high intensity workouts, you’re in for some serious fat-burning. Plus, its Eleiko-branded equipment are the same that Olympic weightlifters use.
100G Pasir Panjang Rd, #01-14 | +65 9389 3723
Monday to Sunday 8am to 8.30pm
Trial length: One 60-min class
Whatever your age, Innervate Fit prides itself on being an all-inclusive community with trial classes across four pricing plans: CrossFit, Adaptives CrossFit, Kids and Teens, and the Silvers CrossFit Programme.

Trial length: One hour-long class
Jal — to mean water in Hindi — refers to the fluidity of the body in yoga practice.
At Jal Yoga, each of its 17 instructors specialises in a specific area of yoga — like hatha or prayanama, to name two. But what’s probably worth a shot is the studio’s infrared heat yoga practice, which uses therapeutic heat panels to directly target the skin and muscles. It’s far removed from the discomfort of hot yoga, and purportedly promotes circulation while detoxing the body.
Five outlets, including 260 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, #02-01 | +65 6732 1483
Monday to Friday 7am to 9pm | Saturday & Sunday 9am to 3pm
Trial length: One class (1.5h to 2h; excludes aerial and prenatal yoga)
Platinum Yoga is one of those studios I’d gladly return to, even if its facilities are no-frills at best. That’s because emphasis is placed on first getting the foundations of your practice right, whether in aerial, rope yoga, power and hatha, or hot flow.
Six outlets, including 3 Temasek Blvd, Suntec City Mall #02-462 to 466 | +65 6837 0234

Four outlets, including 391A Orchard Rd, Lvl 18 Ngee Ann City Tower A | +65 6733 8863
Monday to Friday 6.30am to 10. 30pm | Saturday 7.30am to 7.30pm | Sunday 7.30am to 7.30pm
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Martial Arts and Kickboxing Schools
MMA’s been steadily gaining popularity in recent years, thanks to its umbrella of full-contact sports including wrestling, Muay Thai, boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
But if you’d rather hone in on a single sport, Muay Thai’ll have you working up a major sweat. The combat sport is characterised by the eight points of contact required while in combat: the fists, elbows, shins and knees.
Trial length: One week
Short for Fitness and Mixed Martial Arts, FaMA’s selling point lies in its family-friendly fitness curriculum, which includes Kids’ Martial Arts classes.
If you aren’t sure which to go for during your week-long trial, start with the FaMA Fitness Fundamentals class for a taste of various martial arts training techniques — think bodyweight exercises and movement drills for grappling.
3A River Valley Road, #02-03 | +65 6352 0992
Monday to Friday 6.30am to 10pm | Saturday & Sunday 9am to 5pm
Trial length: One 30-min introductory class
Have you really tried MMA without having undergone an Evolve class? There’s a reason it’s developed a cult-like following; the MMA academy claims to be the only one in Singapore whose instructors are former or current world champions and professional fighters. These include Shinya Aoki, Bruno Pucci and Miesha Tate.
Four locations, including 26 China St, #01-01 Far East Square | +65 6536 4525
Monday to Friday 6.30am to 11pm | Saturday & Sunday 7.30am to 9pm

At Fight G, trial classes are offered for even advanced-level students, given classes are split based on your experience. Choose from BJJ, NoGi Grappling Fundamentals, MMA, Boxing and Muay Thai. If you’re opting for the latter two, you’ll also be required to bring gloves — or rent them at $2/pair.
41C North Canal Rd | +65 6438 5788
Monday to Friday 4pm to 10pm | Saturday 12pm to 4pm
JR Muay Thai
Trial Length: One 45-min class
A beginner’s training programme at JR Muay Thai is enough to ease even the most wary of newbies into the sport. Apart from acquiring all-important self-defence techniques, you’ve the option of training to be a professional Muay Thai fighter. There’re also women-only classes at its Raffles Place outlet, and classes for kids over at its Pioneer branch.
Ten locations, including 45 Jln Pemimpin | Monday to Friday 11am to 9pm | Saturday & Sunday 10am to 6pm
Trial Length: One 30-min class
At 9Round, expect a kickboxing-themed fitness programme that fuses interval, cardio and circuit-training elements.

You’ll be paying for all the extras if you do commit to a package, so be sure to make full use of the facilities — from pool to sleep pods.
Trial Length: One-day pass
This all-women’s gym offers training zones complete with equipment including battle ropes, the agility ladder, kettlebells and the TRX Suspension Trainer, the latter of which aims to guide you through a full-body workout using just your body weight.
Having worked up a sweat, you’ll then have the option of retreating to the Amore Boutique Spa to unknot tense muscles — or maybe even squeeze in a facial — for a fee.
Eight locations, including 200 Victoria St, #03-01 Bugis Junction | +65 6336 6822
Monday to Friday 9am to 10pm | Saturday & Sunday 9am to 9pm
Trial Length: One-day pass
The fun in Anytime Fitness is that you’re given 24/7 access to its over 4,000 gyms worldwide — so squeezing in a workout while overseas is fully possible.

Trial Length: One-day pass
Cycling, reformer pilates, grid training, boxing and indoor climbing: these are only a handful of classes on offer at Virgin Active, which prides itself on offering members an experience.
Such marketing spiel would typically have gone over my head — except I found myself gawking stupidly while scrolling the Virgin Active website. A ‘hydrotherapy spa pool’, sleep pods and Himalayan salt room? Sign-me-up. Alas, peasants like myself’ll have to settle for free classes, complemented by a one-time tour of a Virgin Active branch of choice.
Six locations, including 7 Fraser St, #01-09 Duo Galleria | +65 6911 0570
Monday to Friday 6.30am to 10.30pm | Saturday & Sunday 8am to 4pm | PHs 8am to 8pm

19 locations, including 168 Robinson Rd, #09-01 Capital Tower| +65 6536 5595
Monday to Friday 6am to 10pm | Saturday 7am to 7pm
Trial Length: One-day pass
If you think TFX sounds familiar, you aren’t wrong: it sits under the True Fitness Group, except the ante is upped to condition the body in ways yet unknown to un-fitspos like myself.
Try classes spanning hot yoga, bodypump and zumba — or push your limits with a TFX Small Group Training class, which incorporates elements of HIIT across five workout types for all fitness levels.
At its Funan outlet, you’ll find a technology-enabled training zone, spinning studio, swimming pool and a well-equipped gym.
Three locations, including 107 North Bridge Rd, #04-18 Funan | +65 6690 2388
Monday to Sunday 7am to 10pm
Trial Length: One introductory class and studio tour
Like its counterparts, Pure Fitness is practically a household name, and for good reason. Its shower and beauty station facilities are top-notch, all sheeny surfaces and polished wood — but don’t linger too long, lest you miss the myriad of classes on offer.
Apart from the standards including yoga, kickboxing and gymnastics, you’ll find slightly daunting-sounding training areas like Life Fitness and Iron Grip Resistance Training, and Power Plate Zone.
There’s also an Immersive Fitness studio for spin classes, set to a thumping soundtrack as life-like projections send you racing up steep glaciers and through a space-age city.

Two outlets, including 2 Gopeng St, #01-58 Icon Village | +65 6224 4288
Monday to Sunday 7am to 10pm

Drop-ins Or Single Classes
Drop-ins or single yoga classes without having to sign up as a member have proven to be popular in recent times, especially with platforms such as ClassPass and MindBody that are offering such services and flexibility.

There are just too many yoga studios to list, but here are five interesting studios that offer unique yoga classes at drop-in prices.

If you’ve found a yoga studio that you like and want to stick to the same place and instructors, signing up for membership is probably more cost-effective as the price per class at membership prices tend to be cheaper than drop-in prices.
Besides large commercial gyms and yoga studios that offer membership packages, boutique studios also have packages that allow customers to return multiple or unlimited times.
These studios below belong to larger facilities that usually require membership.
#1 Real Yoga
Claiming to have around 8,000 members, Real Yoga has three studios in Singapore with 25 instructors. Besides the usual classes and personal training, Real Yoga also holds workshops and retreats.
Their classes include Hatha, Flow, Vinyasa, Core, Gentle and so on, and are conducted in either normal air-conditioned studios or hot studios.

Choose A Yoga Studio That Fits Your Preferences And Lifestyle
Whether you choose to pay for yoga classes or attend free ones, the choice is really up to you on what type of yoga class you prefer. Some avoid large chain yoga studios because they find it distracting, but some enjoy the camaraderie formed among other yoga enthusiasts there. If you are a beginner, it might be advisable to go for classes where instructors can correct your poses, rather than attempting to practise it at home, especially if you have a past injury. This is so that they can advise you on improving your poses in order to maximise the benefits that come from it.
If you are just starting out, taking a free class, drop-in/ single class or a trial class may be a good idea before you sign up for a studio membership. In general, you can expect an average drop-in class to cost about $30 and a monthly studio membership to be around $150. This means that you need to be attending 5 or more classes a month for a monthly studio membership to be cost-effective. Thus, do keep into consideration, your work and other lifestyle commitments before you sign up for a studio membership.
5 Ways to Attend Free Yoga Classes in Singapore (Yes Really Free!)
Yoga is supposed to help you find peace and serenity, but the prices of some of the yoga classes in Singapore are enough to give even the most zenned out yogi a heart attack. Since when did inner peace have to come at such a price?
But all is not lost. Whether you prefer to practise yoga in its most traditional form with a strong focus on breathing exercises and cleansing techniques, or you prefer a hip environment filled with trendy Lululemon-clad classmates, here are three ways to attend yoga classes without spending a cent.
1. Nikam Guruji Yoga Kutir
While we tend to think of yoga as a series of exercises designed to turn bodies into pretzels, in actual fact the ancient science of yoga was developed as a way to maintain physical, mental and spiritual health—not look cool in lycra or impress people with your handstands.
A big part of yoga is the breathing exercises and cleaning techniques that keep your insides functioning well, combined with the asanas or poses we’re used to seeing. Nikam Guruji Yoga Kutir’s 12-week basic course teaches both at various locations all over the island. Although the organisation offers free yoga classes, at certain centres a $5 to $10 charge will be levied upon registration.
What are classes like? While there are mass practice sessions during the weekly classes, don’t expect a bootcamp-style hardcore workout. Classes are designed to equip participants with the skills needed to practise yoga on their own, so a lot of emphasis will be placed on checking that the various exercises are done correctly, and at the end of each class students split into small groups to have their exercises checked by an instructor.
How to sign up? Check the website for the starting dates of the next set of basic courses and simply show up on the first day of the term to register.
2. Sunrise in the City by Health Promotion Board
If you’d like to check out some of the latest and greatest yoga studios in Singapore and are well able to wake up early in the morning, you’ll want to sign yourself up for free yoga classes under the banner of the Health Promotion Board’s Sunrise in the City programme.
Participating studios are all over Singapore, but mainly in central areas close to the CBD. They open their doors early in the morning or after 7pm in the evening so full-time workers can enjoy free yoga classes.
What are classes like? Classes are held at various studios, so teaching methods may vary slightly depending on which classes you’re attending, although most follow the standard modern yoga style with air conditioned studios and a mass workout session with corrections from the instructor. Choose from morning sun salutations, hot yoga and more. The calendar changes each month.
How to sign up? Visit the Sunrise in the City website and register for the slots you’d like to attend online. Slots tend to fill up fast, so once you enter your details the HPB will inform you when the latest schedule is out to allow you to book far in advance.
3. Meetup groups
While Meetup tends to be a good resource for free sports and exercise groups, most of the yoga classes on the site charge per-lesson fees of about $10 to $25. Still, there are one or two groups that conduct free yoga classes, the most popular being the Yoga for Peace and Balance group.
The group meets every Sunday morning at the Botanic Gardens for an outdoor yoga session and has grown to be quite large, with close to 50 participants at times.
What are classes like? The style is modern-style Hatha, and while the class level is pitched as basic, those who have little experience with yoga will find it quite a vigorous workout nonetheless. The outdoor location makes it a nice alternative to air conditioned studios, although those who are afraid of the sun should come equipped with lots of sunscreen.
How to sign up? RSVP on their Meetup page and show up at the appointed date and time outside Botanic Gardens MRT. The group will then move towards their spot for the morning.
4. Open Mats (Pay As You Wish)
Well, not technically free per se, but yoga studios also regularly organise Open Mats for their teachers to practise teaching real students. You pay as you wish, which means that you can potentially not pay if you don’t want to, but if you feel like showing your appreciation, you can also give a token sum.
Yoga Inc offers open mat classes at their Guillemard Studio. You just have to bring along your own towel and lock, otherwise they cost $1 and $2 respectively to rent. The next round of Pay-As-You-Wish classes at Yoga Inc are on the following dates:
- 14 July (Sun)
- 21 July (Sun)
Booking opens 1 week in advance.
Kate Porter Yoga along East Coast Road also holds free Open Mat classes, but from the look of their website, it isn’t as regular as Yoga Inc.
What are the classes like? Open Mat Classes are usually conducted by different teachers, usually those who are a little inexperienced. But they would probably be regular yoga practitioners and have taken the relevant teacher training courses. Give them a chance, it’s pay as you wish anyway!
How to sign up? Go to the relevant yoga studio to sign up for pay-as-you-wish yoga classes that are “Open Mat” or “Pay As You Wish”. These classes get snapped up really quickly so it’s good to check back often or follow them on their social media channels to get updates.
5. Yoga events, like Freedom Yoga’s block party
Brands and studios sometimes have free yoga events. One particular event that is coming right up is Freedom Yoga’s block party happening at Holland Village. On 20 July 2019, there will be 2 classes in the evening, Freedom Blaze and Inside Flow. You have to bring your own mat and it will be an open-air event.
Other brands that regularly conduct yoga events include AIA, Lululemon, and so on.
What are the classes like? Freedom Yoga’s block party is carried out on Lorong Liput, so you literally lay out your yoga mat on the tarmac and practise in the open air. With a stage set up in front and being shoulder to shoulder with fellow yogis, the atmosphere can be charged with adrenaline. But because it is open air, a potential downside is being exposed to the elements (e.g. too hot, mosquitoes buzzing). If you’re someone who’s shy, it’s likely that you will be more self-conscious than zen that the general public will be watching, since it’s hard to not stare at 50 over people practising yoga on the street.
How to sign up? To join Freedom Yoga’s block party, email [email protected] to reserve your spot.

Available on iOS and Android. Some classes are free, but most can only be seen in the pro version, which costs $ 18.99 per month, $ 36.99 per year, or $ 69.99 indefinitely.
There are many exercises in the appendix. It will be useful for those who practice yoga to stay in shape. It also has a collection of activities and programs focused on relaxation and meditation, yoga fundamentals, health and energy. You can choose a category aimed at physical performance: muscle tone, balance, flexibility, cardio, fat burning, athletic performance, women’s health and asanas (as yogis call “right exercise”).
Users can also plan their own activities from hundreds of positions and sequences listed in the app.If you know what to do, this is a good way to create your own personal training system.
Best Personalization App: Yoga Studio
Available on iOS and Android with a 7-day free trial. The app has 9 subscription plans ranging from $ 2.99 to $ 95.99.
Build your program from the Yoga Studio pose library. Yoga Studio is similar to Lotus Yoga – you can also create activities from ready-made poses and sequences.However, unlike Lotus Yoga, this app focuses on health, not fitness.
Of course, it also has exercises for mobility and athletic performance. But in general, Yoga Studio classes are based on the healing properties of yoga. There are selections for boosting immunity, improving sleep, weight management, fertility, and mental health. Some playlists are inspired by the philosophical and spiritual foundations of yoga: pranayama, chakra yoga, as well as various greeting and meditation practices with an instructor.
Best App for Purposeful Practice: Daily Yoga
Available on iOS and Android. Some classes are free, but most can only be seen after upgrading to the pro version for $ 19.99 per month or $ 49.99 per year.
Like Glo, Daily Yoga recommends exercise based on your needs and divides the sessions into weekly programs that you can practice at either the recommended schedule or at your own pace.What’s especially important is that every program and every element in the library comes with a list of benefits — useful information for those looking to focus on a specific area or function of your body. If you are doing master classes, you can also learn about the coach’s learning style and who the practice is best for.
You can start by looking at recommended programs based on your goal: improving tone, flexibility, learning the basics, promoting health, strengthening skills, or relieving stress.The app also has sound meditation sessions. If you’re looking for a community to share your experiences, as well as blogs and yoga tips, you’ll love the app’s social features.
Best Habit Forming App: Sunsa Yoga
Free on iOS and Android. The premium version costs from $ 9.99 to $ 29.99. The app allows you to customize a program of 40 lessons – ideal for those who like to exercise regularly.
When you first launch the Sunsa Yoga app, it will ask questions about the goals and health and fitness aspects the user would like to focus on.It then offers a 40-lesson program designed to achieve them.
This is a great app for those who like to stick to a plan and exercise regularly. Of course, if you want to deviate from the plan, you can use the activity library for different purposes and needs. But the possibilities are relatively limited and the exercises themselves are rather short.
Best Yoga YouTube Channels
The best YouTube channel in all respects: Yoga with Adrienne
Anyone who has ever tried yoga from YouTube videos has heard of Adrienne and her friend Benji the dog.She is one of the first yogis on YouTube. Although she is known for her disposition and fooling around, her philosophy is very serious and spiritual.
Adrienne gives instructions in a soothing voice. She not only encourages her followers to “find what is good for them,” but also makes sure that her explanations and videos are clear. She uses no jargon and gives her lessons to people from all walks of life: “yoga for writers,” “yoga for teens,” “yoga for those at risk,” and so on.She also has a lot of yoga videos for treating pain and specific body parts.
In addition, the channel has materials on meditation and mental health – practices for self-esteem, humility, creativity, anxiety, PTSD, grief. She also occasionally shoots a series of 30-day yoga-themed videos focusing on a specific topic. Her latest series, Home, is just perfect for this summer.
Best YouTube Channel for Stretching and Balanced Practices: Yoga with Kassandra
Styles from dynamic vinyasa to slow yin stretches are featured here.If you want to exercise throughout the day, this channel is for you: Kassandra has energetic awakening videos and calm recovery videos that will rest your mind and body at the end of the day. She is great at combining them for balanced activities.
But she is best at yin yoga – a gentle, meditative style that aims to calm and deeply work out the body. This practice will allow you to focus on breathing, energy flow, and conscious stretching. Of course, it will work differently for different people; But if you need to deal with pain, relieve stress, or become more flexible, Cassandra’s videos are for you.
Best Wellness YouTube Channel: Fightmaster Yoga
Leslie hosts the Fightmaster Yoga channel. Like Adrienne, she has no bias in teaching yoga. If you are a beginner looking to gain self-confidence, her motto: “It’s not about posture” will help you. It is important for Leslie that you came and made a decision to take care of yourself; to make your mind and body feel better at the end of each practice.
Leslie’s exercises are based on vinyasa yoga and focus on breathing and alignment.She has many videos on her channel about energy practices of ashtanga, grounding procedures from hatha yoga, as well as full body exercises and stretching. Her activities will charge your day with positive energy and purposefulness. And the background for her video is the ocean.
Best YouTube Channel for Targeted Practice: SarahBeth Yoga
If you start with clear goals and intentions, then you will appreciate Sarah’s channel. It is carefully organized and very easy to navigate.
All of her videos are color-coded pink for strength fitness yoga, sky blue for vinyasa flow exercises, dark blue for hatha yoga, and purple for relaxation recovery sessions. It also has a handy playlist with videos sorted into categories so it’s easy to follow.
If you prefer yoga apps because they are more intuitive and straightforward than YouTube channels, consider SarahBeth Yoga as a free alternative.You will appreciate this conveniently organized channel and Sarah’s teaching style.
Best Yoga Education YouTube Channel: Ekhart Yoga
Ekhart Yoga is Europe’s largest online yoga studio. She has a website and a paid app, and her YouTube channel is full of free classes, live sessions and videos featuring some of their 52 teachers and 23 yoga styles.
Educational videos about yoga and anatomy make this channel special.Don’t be surprised to see a skeleton model on the channel, and get ready to learn more about your body. Yoga instructors will explain how the different parts of the body connect to each other and give advice on how to organize classes based on what the body needs. Overall, it is a great channel for those hoping to learn how their body moves during practice and how it relates to the mind.
Best YouTube Channel for Meditation and Spiritual Practice: BrettLarkinYoga
From time to time you will hear yogis say that their “chakras are blocked.”But what does this really mean? Brett explains that this means that energy (kundalini) cannot move effectively from the lower spine through the seven energy centers (“chakras”) along it to the top of the head and beyond the earthly realms – thereby causing physical, mental and emotional imbalances.
Brett’s practice is largely based on this philosophy, so you will see several videos designed to awaken your inner energy: meditation, chakra yoga and kundalini yoga, a style that focuses on posture, breathing and mantra chanting.But since chakras are fundamental to yoga, Brett also teaches other styles to get your energy to flow and your chakras to align.
YouTube Channel for Mind-Body Connection: Allie – The Journal Junkie
Like Brett, Ellie’s practice draws heavily on chakra philosophy and yoga tradition. But Ellie usually uses more than just kundalini, but several yoga styles to target each of the seven chakras.
Each chakra presumably corresponds to a specific part of the spine and denotes a different mental and emotional state. Since many of Ellie’s practices only focus on one chakra at a time, if you stick to this philosophy, you can nourish and restore a healthy balance of energy in areas of your body and mind that need extra attention.
Don’t worry if talking about chakras isn’t interesting to you. Ellie also posts a variety of videos for morning and evening practices, dynamic vinyasa streams, fitness yoga, and gentle and restorative activities.
The best YouTube channel for those who want variety: YogaTX
This channel brings together yogis from all over Texas and is suitable for those who are not ready to devote themselves to just one instructor or style.
The more instructors, the more variety. There are yoga videos for practitioners of all levels, as well as various body parts and goals. Pain relief, exercise, meditation? You can find everything at once. If you want to exercise regularly, YogaTX can help you with that too – just watch the video from the Yoga Connection series. The yogis who run the channel upload videos weekly, so there are many options.

kekulov’s Instagram Audience Analytics and Demographics
I’m sure you’ve heard of the wish marathon. At the end of last year, I also participated in the base marathon @my_dream_on
Firstly, it was interesting for me to get acquainted with the classifications of desires and their relationship with our psyche. And, since @elena_blinovskaya is a psychologist, I expected to find something new for myself that I did not know before.And I found it. Why do I need it? I plan to improve my first dive course, where desires and goals are an important part of mindful networking. This is something that can unite people much more strongly and sincerely than a lettering on a business card or a post occupied by a person. And if the goals are more or less clear, they have already been described many times by successful entrepreneurs and trainers in efficiency and goal-setting, but with desires, I wanted to understand more deeply.
Secondly, in my life it often happened that some desires were embodied easily and by themselves (without effort on my part), while others seemed to get stuck, and even when I transferred them into the category of goals, gave them the SMART formulation, all the same they not reached or moved with a creak.And it happened that I did not have time to “grope” the desire itself, but it was already embodied and I realized that I was embarrassed to dream about just such a thing or was limited to my usual thinking. In general, in this part of my life there is something subtle and sacred. And yes, after completing the marathon, I can explain most of these “magic” elements through neurobiology, the structure of the psyche and the functioning of our attention, motivation and other quite everyday things … but who cares if it works? 😁
Passing the marathon, I felt on myself that I began to dream somehow more mundane and without a wide scope, as before.😏 For example, I want to swim with a whale shark for a long time, but they are not found in Bali, and for practical reasons I decided to dream about dolphins, which I also hadn’t swam with. But … during the marathon, and thanks to the power of superficial “random” connections, I learned that Russian guys found a place 500 km from Bali where whale sharks come and go swimming to them. 😯 In general, the marathon showed me where I “betray” my desires and showed that more is available to me than I imagine it for myself.
