What is new? Let’s get ready for next week!
Hudson, our dancing Zumba boxer brother/son, crossed over the rainbow bridge last Tuesday surrounded by his loving family, Zoey & the incredible staff Dundas West Animal Hospital. He fought at good fight but in the end we know, he was ready.
Hudson was one of a kind….never barked (once a yearish just so we knew he could if he really wanted to) you knew what he was thinking by his eyes, tail & heavy sighs.❤️
Hudson provided our family daily with unconditional love, laughter, snuggles & play. He helped his Lil’ big sister Zoey overcome losing her mommy & provided her with love & comfort. ❤️🐾🐾❤️
Hudson came home with us on the first day we moved into our new home….every corner of this place reminds me of him. ❤️💔❤️
Hudson also had amazing dancing skills & a lover of music. When he wasn’t with me at Zumba,you could find him at home in the music room chillin with his daddy😍
He went every where with me…when I worked in an office when he was a pup…he would do the 45 minute walk there..take a nap for the day & then walk all the way home❤️ He rode buses & took subways, long car rides & more. He took naps on walks under underpasses 😂🤣…concerning passersby but we always knew…”that’s just our boy!” He worked up in Ninos office (or more just caught sunbeams from a blanket)❤️
Known as “the balcony dog” in the neighborhood in the summer. He would sit for hours on the balcony just watching people walk by.😍🐾🐾❤️
He loved his naps❤️ But as a pup… after a nap came extreme energy & lots of time running, chasing, playing.😍❤️
I would only do certain shopping experiences if I could bring Hudson.❤️
He was the ring bearer at our wedding❤️
Hudson wasn’t just a dog…he was our son, our brother & I am so lucky to have gotten to be his mommy.❤️
Hudson will be missed deeply by his grandparents, aunts, uncles, & all the little people he has loved along the way.❤️❤️
Hudson will be deeply missed by all the Zumba ladies as he came to class often to greet & watch them dance..❤️💃❤️
Hudson will also be missed by all his friends 2legged & 4legged @ckandfriends who he spent time with each week playing & having his own lil life ❤️🐾🐾❤️
My heart has forever known a love like no other & I am truly grateful I got to have you in my life. I know this is only goodnight for now.
Wait for me. Our paths will come together again. Gone from the physical but never gone from my heart.❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for letting this lil’ guy dance into your heart too!
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!

See you Wednesday!!
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!\
