April Zumba Online during Covid19

What is new? Let’s get ready for next week!

I have been thinking about all of you & praying that you & your families are all safe during this crazy time of Covid19.  It is not easy being at home day in & day out. I know for myself, there have been moments of feeling down, eating too much, boredom & all around just missing people & the freedom to go out.

This difficult time has also had me see the things in my life that I have taken for granted. Especially things like getting together with my friends & family, shopping when I feel like it & going outside to exercise.
For the past 2 weeks, I have been running classes through Zoom online & what I have realized is I am not alone in all these feelings. I have also realized how much JOY it brings us all to gather as a community, even if it only be online, to play some music & DANCE! 🙂
With that in mind, we can now see that April is going to continue to be shut down from social contact.  For that reason, I will continue teachingZUMBA CLASSES WEEKLY through zoom!  
Doesn’t matter where you are in the world….YOU can now come DANCE WITH ME!! 🙂

The Best Things In Life Make You Sweaty!

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!

Do You Get the Mid Week Blues?

Never fear! Zumba Basics is HERE!!! 🙂

Okay, yes. I do get quite excited about this.

Here is why….many years ago now (before I found Zumba) I used to find Tuesdays to be a very long day and by the time Wednesday rolled around, I would be feeling super tired and wishing for the weekend….since discovering the great world of Zumba AND doing a Zumba class every wednesday, my energy to kick it through the week has been AMAZING!

I personally just want everyone to have amazing days and incredible weeks and now that we have moved into this uber cool spot of High Park Brewery, it has made it even MORE FUN (if that was even possible)!!

This location is especially great for those who have friends or family who want to join you but may or may not want to actually do the class for now.  They can come, sit on the patio or inside, enjoy a cold pint or soda, listen to the music and pick up on the energy whether they are doing the class or not! Pretty cool!

You get to do your fitness class AND spend time with those you care about! OR, if you just need a night away from everyone, this is just a really awesome place to get your groove on with some pretty spectacular ladies!!

SEE YOU SOON!!!

Here are the Deets:

Wednesdays @ 6:45pm  High Park Brewery (839 Runnymede Road)

Tonight We Dance!

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!
