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!

To all you parents who are ready to get back into routine, I remind you that Zumba & a Pint is a GREAT routine! Whether you have the pint or a soda after class is up to you but the brewery has a mid week cool vibe going on that will carry you all the way through to your weekend!
Come check it out! See you Wednesday!! WOOHOO!
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!!!

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! 🙂
Do you ever just want to do some type of fitness but stop yourself because you have the thought “but will THIS be the thing I can stick to?” or “will THIS be the exercise I will actually get in shape with?”
Many people stop before they even get started due to mindset.
I knew for many years that I wanted to do some form of fitness and many times I would start at the gym and do some cardio, a bit of weights and then get frustrated because either
a. I wouldn’t be consistent because I couldn’t see where this work was going or
b. I just wasn’t having fun and it began to feel like another j-o-b and quite frankly I already had one of those doing 40+ hours a week!
When I discovered Zumba, I realized it was actually similar to something I would do often that would pick up my spirits. At home, I would crank up my music, clean my house, sing out loud, shake my bum while I tidied up!
The best part with Zumba is I no longer had to CLEAN UP to get this inspiration going! 🙂
I could just go to a class, stand in the front or the back and just dance and lose myself in the music. I stopped having those thoughts of “will this get me in shape” or “will this be the thing I stick to.”
It just became easy because I fell in love with it.
A great zumba instructor and class has a freedom to it. Everyone is accepted. Everyone CAN dance and are in a safe, fun environment where people just let loose and sweat awesomeness everywhere.
You will be having so much fun that you don’t need to see the end result, you just ride out the journey….one…step…at…a…time!
See you in class!
Summer is NOT over….EVER…
Why do I say this?
Because in a Zumba class it doesn’t matter what time of the year it is…you WILL have the experience of landing on an island somewhere and dancing till you feel like it is summer where ever you are!
Don’t believe me?
Then come try out a class! Experience it for yourself! I keep the moves simple and you will sweat and feel HAPPY emotions flood over you like they do on a nice sunny day!
I always thought that was a crazy analogy…until I started taking Zumba myself! Once the class begins, no matter how cold outside, in moments you are warm all over and a smile will be beaming from ear to ear.
It is kind of magical really!
Don’t take my word for it. Quote this post and get the class on me to give it a whirl!
Come get hooked on Zumba and have the experience of summer all year-long!
