No Zumba Wednesday March 21, 2018

Hi Ladies,

This is a friendly reminder that there is no zumba class at 6:45 pm this week.

It is kind of for a pretty cool reason and I want to share with you! My best friend all the way back from Grade 5 (and let’s pretend I just graduated from high school like a year ago…lol) has flown out to Toronto from Saskatchewan and we are getting together to catch up AND to go to the P!ink concert! (Ok…so it’s more like a 15+ year since we have seen each other reunion…so exciting!!)

That is a pretty sweet, once in a lifetime kind of night! 🙂

Thank you so much to all of you that I have already spoke to about this cancellation and your understanding.  Please be sure to dance at home this Wednesday and if you can, come out on Thursday at 7:00pm for Zumba Core fun!!

All other classes are on except this Wednesday.

Much love and appreciation for you all!





Spring Forward….

Yup! It happened! Time has moved ahead by an hour!

This has always affected my health when it happens….throws off my sleep and I feel more tired than ever.

How do I get back on track?

I get back to dancing my regular Zumba schedule as quickly as possible.

Yes, it is good to let our bodies rest but have you noticed if you just let your body rest long enough…it isn’t really interested in doing much else?

Push through the time change and month of March blues by staying on track and dancing your way through it!

It is the only thing that seems to work for me! Try it and see if it works for YOU TOO!

Check out our schedule and come on out and DANCE!

Zumba is so much fun!

If you are someone who goes to the gym and counts the minutes until your workout is over…it may be time for you to try something different.

I was there once too…

I used to go to the gym and get on a treadmill and within 4 minutes (and I may be stretching that a little to make it seem like I really gave it all I had to make it to 5 minutes…) all I could think of was how long I had to keep doing this to reach the end.

Sound familiar?

Don’t get me wrong.  The gym can be GREAT! Some people really love it and I encourage my clients to switch it up and go if it inspires them. Trying different things can keep you from plateauing in your workouts.

When I found Zumba, my first reaction to the video I watched was “This is AMAZING!! I wanna do this!”

When I found my first class and went my first reaction was (tons of laughter from me) and “What the heck am I doing? I must look like a clown right now!”

The difference between yoga classes and Zumba classes (besides the obvious differences) is this…when you laugh and can’t stop in is fun and contagious….when you laugh and can’t stop in yoga…they kick you out…

I learned that one on my own too

(hence why I also teach Laughter Yoga…Kinda more my style)

After taking a few Zumba classes (started out with one a week), I began to know the moves a little more and fell in love with music and how FAST the class went.  I felt like I just stepped into class and suddenly we were at the cooldown.


Just like that I was sweaty, relaxed and DONE my workout!! Felt so good!!

Each week came with more moves, new rhythms and then this class called Zumba Toning started and class was different but still as much fun as regular Zumba.  Then came Zumba Senato!!

What??!! All this from the Zumba Family??

The great part was that this class gave me a new way to continue doing what I loved and a new way to work my muscles so I didn’t plateau in my workouts.


Fast forward to 10 years now…2 years as a student and coming up 8 years teaching.

People often as me “Is Zumba just a fad?”

Honestly, I don’t know…I have been doing it for a decade now and I am not bored and have no interest in quitting. I love it. It is passion. It is play. It is sweaty fun with an AMAZING community of people! I cannot imagine going back to anything else.

I think there are quite a few people out there, just like me, that a decade has passed and we are all wondering where the time went because it is just that AWESOME and easy to get hooked doing it!

Hope you come have some laughs, sweat and groove moves with us all soon! It is NEVER too late to start!

Much love,

January 2018 is Here!

If you are a “New Year’s Resolution” person you may be well on your way to your new goal.  If you are a “New Year to start something New person” you may still be looking for that new “thing” to try out and see where it goes!

Personally, I am more the second person than the first.  It really doesn’t matter though which person you are or if you take on neither of these.  Often times we stress ourselves out at this time of year thinking that if we don’t have that “New Shiny Goal” in place than we have already failed for the year before we can succeed, or if we take something on and in the first week something happens and we can no longer commit to it that the whole year is now blown…

Hogwash! (as my mom would say!)

A New Year only holds the meaning YOU/I attach to it. We can actually start and stop goals at anytime and it means nothing about who we are or how the rest of the year will go if we do.

Mindset is everything in the game of life, in my opinion. The moment I make myself wrong or something wrong that is going on around me is the moment that I have gone down the rabbit hole and will spend the next week/month/year trying to dig myself out of it.

Give yourself the freedom to explore this January. To explore what it is that lights you up and when you discover it….DO MORE OF THAT! (Whatever it is)

Do not allow yourself to dive deep into the rabbit hole of destruction that wrecks your entire year before it is started. Make 2018 the year of exploration and see what opens up!

Just a suggestion to take on as we move forward this month.

Happy vibes coming your way!

Much love and success to this new year for you in 2018!


December is on the Way!!!

Ladies!! December is on the way and this means parties, festive cheer, shopping and schedules become jam-packed.

I totally get it. I am right there with you!

Make sure that with all that is going on in your lives that you continue to take care of you during this busy season.  This means continuing to schedule yourself to be at your fitness classes!

YOU are worth it and especially now you must make sure you take care of your well-being by keeping up with your own personal routine too!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Zumba classes are all on for the month of December! No excuses! 🙂


Class Notice for Oscar Romero Tuesdays

Dear Clients:

I have been tracking all the classes that are currently running at the Oscar Romero location to see what is working and what is not.  The truth, is that I have been looking over the numbers and Tuesdays have been quite slow since July and I have actually been paying out-of-pocket to run Tuesday night class.

What this means is that effective November 1, 2017 I will no longer be running Tuesday night classes.

The GOOD news!

All other classes will continue to run and your are still good for use at Mondays 4pm (College/Bathurst) location, all Wednesday (6:45pm), Thursday(7:00pm) classes and Friday (9:30am) classes at Oscar Romero location.
