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! 🙂
Okay…I may be a little premature in saying this, however, at some point it must show up!
Summer always does!
That being said, why not get a jump-start on feeling great inside and out by coming out to “shake what your momma gave ya!” at a local zumba class!
No need to get a gym membership or feel intimidated by equipment and weightlifters. The only thing you need to bring is water and maybe a towel to wipe down after class because one thing I 100% promise…WE GONNA SWEAT!
The location is fun and community oriented, the ladies are awesome and welcoming. We do not play games like in high school, we all just come out for a good time, to get lost in the music, have some laughs and walk away feeling awesome.
If that sounds good to you and you want to come join us, please do!

Classes are Wednesdays at 6:45pm, Thursdays at 7:00pm and Fridays at 9:30am!
Check out the schedule for any changes and RSVP to hold your spot!
SEE YOU SOON!!!
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!
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.
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 Zumba..it 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.
WIN WIN AGAIN!!! THANK YOU ZUMBA FITNESS!
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!
Tammy (Your friendly neighborhood Zumba Instructor)
