Anyone CAN Do It!

Recently I was in a conversation with someone who shared with me that they could not dance.  This statement always makes me wonder at what point in their life did they “make up” that they couldn’t?

Did someone tell them they couldn’t?

Did they try and felt foolish?

Do people ACTUALLY have 2 left feet? I have never seen that but for sure would love to sometime!

I often think that the judgements of not being able to do something is just simply put, a thought we have that we give power to.

I believe this when it comes to many things.

For me, dance is just a natural state. I often do not even realize when I walk across the floor that I will begin to “glide” (as my husband says)..I cannot help but move in a fluid motion, it has become natural.

I have recently taken on learning about finance and real estate. Why I bring this up is because when I started to learn, I had the thought “I cannot do this…this is hard”…and then I brought myself back to when someone tells me they cannot dance and my belief that everyone can…(even if it is to their own drum..they are STILL dancing).

Taking on that anyone CAN learn and do new things has opened me up to see that I am actually very capable of learning in the world of finance and real estate!

I do prefer to dance. I am more comfortable dancing, however, I am learning to not be limited!

Dancing teaching us flow. Flow through life, problems, happiness, sadness, breakthroughs and breakdowns.

Whether you dance to your own beat or in a class, I promise you…LIFE is just better when you DANCE! 🙂 11709645_10153211210138551_7110724180411041881_n

Benefits of Movement

Fitness Fun Made Simple!

The benefit of a Zumba class can be really amazing for your body.  Have you ever noticed how fit dancers are?  The dance world is a fitness in itself and millions of people worldwide take advantage of the benefits of dance each week.

In a Zumba class (and I am speaking from how I teach) the music will vary from class to class.  Potentially on a Tuesday you will be doing salsa, Bollywood, swing and then on Wednesday you are in full reggaetone, cumbia, calypso to a Thursday doing toning with bachata, samba, electro-dance….. who knows what the mix could be AND it is all fun!

Often times we reach the end of the class and everyone looks at each other like “did an hour seriously just pass by??” …as sweat is pouring off us and everyone is smiling from ear to ear!

Music always allows all the billions of thoughts that pass through our brains to slow down and listen to something different, even if for an hour.  With the music taking care of all your thoughts….your body is free to move to the beat.  Often, we have jobs where we sit for long periods of time or jobs that can be quite taxing in lifting or walking long distances.  Whichever style job you have, your body needs to move freely.  You will find after taking a class and losing yourself in the music AND allowing your body to move freely, all your energy shifts and you will left with a sense of happy endorphins coursing through your veins!  What a cool experience!

What could your day or evening look like if you could reap all the benefits from a Zumba class?
