What is new? Let’s get ready for next week!
How true is that statement?!
Pretty true if you ask me! In this case in particular, I am talking about getting your “sweat on” dancing to amazing music and just letting your body move and groove however it wants to!
If you have never tried this, I invite you to give it a go in the comfort of your own home. DO NOT TRY THIS IN FRONT OF A MIRROR! If you do, I assert, you will only start to judge and assess the way you move and make up all sorts of things rather than just getting lost in a good song that makes you feel amazing to move to!
I was a “private dancer” for many years….aka….dancing in my home where nobody could see me. If you are worried about letting loose in public, this truly is a great place to start.
The next thing to do is to FIND YOUR TRIBE!
What does this mean?
All this means is finding a group of people, who like yourself, just want to be able to move and de-stress throughout the week. This is a non-judgmental group that just wants to get lost in the music….maybe hoot and holler a little bit….make up moves from time to time on the spot…and learn a few new moves from an instructor.
Where could you find this “tribe”?
Every Wednesday night at 6:45pm a group of AMAZING FUN NON-JUDGMENTAL people come together at High Park Brewery to let loose and shake all the cares and worries away for one hour! Oh, it is also known as a Zumba Basics class led by….ME! 🙂
The people who come are AWESOME! There are no mirrors so you can just get your groove on, laugh, play and enjoy yourself! Do not worry about getting it “right”. There is NO right way to dance and de-stress. The only way you can do this one hour class wrong is if you stand in the corner and quite literally just “stand” there.
I highly recommend you move and however you move is PERFECT!
We have TWO classes left of 2019! Tomorrow and Wednesday December 18th, both start at 6:45pm. Being we are in a brewery too and not just ANY brewery but one that makes the BEST BEER in Toronto, you can enjoy a cold brew and meet some really great people too!
It is a WIN WIN! What a way to end 2019! Come do something just for YOU! And bring friends if you like! The more the merrier! SEE YOU WEDNESDAY!
I have been thinking about what the Live OUT LOUD Movement stands for quite a bit lately. I have come to discover for myself that it is MUCH MORE than just fitness. It is a way of living in many areas including but not limited to fitness, nutrition, mindset, skin care, confidence, making a difference…essentially all of what lights us up to be AWESOME human beings. I wanted to share this with you because I knew I had been struggling with my skin but didn’t realize how much until I tried something new! I am also going to dedicate a page to this called Look Great FEEL Great where you can find a link to where I discovered all of these awesome products that ACTUALLY work!
The pictures I am sharing are a 3 week period to now of trying something out…but HERE is the BACK STORY…LONG but I feel really WORTH THE READ if you have are or are at a point questioning…what can I do to better my skin?
I have struggled with my skin for YEARS. Actually kind of gave up/became resigned that I would NEVER have nice skin.
Super sensitive to cleaning products, breaking out all the time AND with aging my wrinkles getting bigger & bigger.
In the last few years, I have been wearing more & more makeup to cover it up….in hopes no one could tell. Anyone else do that?
A few months ago I met with a friend of mine, who I actually met through Facebook/mutual friends & quite honestly she is just one of those positive people I love to see being awesome in the world.
When we met, I had a feeling she had a secret to growing YOUNGER (cuz she looks FABULOUS) When we met after some conversation she asked if I would be willing to try something. Totally resigned but always open to at least “trying” I felt I could at least try & PROVE to her that products do not work for me…LOL…that is literally how resigned I was but a little hopeful too…
COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE!
After the first use, I felt my skin feeling better. Almost like if my skin could talk it would say…”well it’s about time!”
After a few more days I began to notice my skin brightening & becoming smoother….within 5 days it was like a WHOLE NEW YOUNGER FACE! In the past 2 months of using the products, I have seen my wrinkles getting smaller, my skin brighter and all over feeling more confident! You may not know this about me, but my skin has always been an area in which I have been shy about. LOOK OUT WORLD CUZ I AM FEELING & LOOKING GREAT! Hehehe!
All I gotta say is I am now at a point where I feel I can confidently share that this has been a life altering experience that I am pretty pumped about. A few months ago I became a Representative of this product (even after swearing off all direct marketing companies forever, I just couldn’t dispute this product. It actually works!)
I want to help all women & men that may be having this struggle too. I know you are out there! It can’t just be me who was having this experience. With absolutely no pressure, you try it out. If you love it or hate it, let me know. Either way works.
The company has more products too, but for me, this is what needed as a drastic change for me to even consider looking at anything else they had. I am seriously impressed with the results & will start trying other products soon!
If you want to know more info about this & how it can work for you, please let me know by sending a private message. I want to help as many people FEEL as amazing as I do!
It is almost like you see the difference AND YOU CAN FEEL THE DIFFERENCE in these pictures! I am so happy now!

I don’t know about you…but I am VERY affected by weather changes.
Barometric changes are my nemesis!
I can tell when it is about to rain or snow…not by looking outside but by what I feel…the pressure on my head feels like I have my head in a vice and its slowly turning right behind my eyes. It can come on pretty quick. In fact yesterday, it took 30 minutes to set in and literally have me in pain.
The ONLY thing I have truly found that works to relieve the pressure and headache onset is…you guessed it….Zumba!
While it may seem like “Why would you put loud music on and move when your head is killing?”
My response is “about 2 songs in, the oxygen is flowing fully again through my body and endorphins are releasing…. typically by the third song in I can feel CLEAR again and the vice on my head is no longer gripping me!”
The hardest part…ALWAYS…
Just getting to class when it is hurting so intensely.
Once I am there and get moving, it is like being released from a cement cloud that has engulfed me.
TODAY is a great day, for anyone suffering from weather shifts, to come out to class tonight and let me help you to release the pressure on your head through Zumba!
NO KIDDING! IT WORKS! Hope to see you tonight! YOU CAN DO IT!\
839 Runnymede Road, Toronto.

Hope you can make it!!
This morning I got up early (5:45am) in anticipation of it being Wednesday….I love Wednesdays…one of my favorite days of the week for so many reasons!
A big reason today that I am full of energy so early is that I get to see so many of you tonight! Tonight is Zumba Basics at High Park Brewery! Our new location lights me up!
For anyone who is not clear what Zumba Basics is…..it is a latin cardio fitness program that incorporates in music and moves from around the world. I take you on a musical journey of dance (with 3-4 moves per song to keep it easy to follow) from around the world.
We could be doing anything from bachata, salsa, swing, african, hip hop, reggatone, tango, cumbia, pop, brazilian, you name it and you will most likely find it in this class.
It is not about getting it “right”, it is about moving your body and feeling the rhythm in your soul.
I have been teaching now for nearly a decade and before that was a client for a few years with Zumba. In my opinion, this is one of the most fun ways to work out without feeling like you are doing a work out but your sweat and smile at the end let you know that you did!
If you miss a move we are doing, don’t worry about it! Accidental solo’s are the best! We have no mirrors in the Brewery so only you know if you missed it and it’s a great way to train yourself to not be so hard on you! 🙂
ANYONE truly can do Zumba! If you can move your body in any way, you can do Zumba! I have clients in wheelchairs that do Zumba! It is one of the best programs out there that is universal to anyone and everyone being able to participate.
Take a chance! I invite you to come out and give it a try!
After class, enjoy a beer, water or soda and relax with an awesome group of people! It is the perfect way to spend mid-week!
Here are the Deets:
