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!! 🙂
How can I pay?
Many of you have approached me about wanting to pay to attend these online classes.  My thoughts on this are we are all struggling financially & for that reason, I do not wish to burden anyone with choosing between paying for a class & buying essentials that you need.
That being said, if you still would like to pay, I am creating a donation to dance.  What this means is anyone can attend the classes for FREE& if you would like to make a donation to me in any dollar amount to attend the classes, I leave that to you & there is no obligation. I am very grateful for all your love & support.
Simply send an e-transfer to funlovecommunity@gmail.com if you wish to donate.
Online Class Schedule & Links
Zumba Basics Mondays at 10am
Zumba Toning Wednesdays at 6pm
Zumba Basics Thursdays at 10am
If you would like access to these online classes, please send me an email & I will forward them to you!~
Each class is 45 minutes in length & you are welcome to join EVERY one of them! 🙂
If you have not already, simply download the Zoom app when prompted as you log in! We will have lots of fun!
Yours in Health & Dancing through the Darkness,

10 Years TODAY as a Zumba Fitness Instructor!

10 years ago today, I birthed a new career path as a Zumba Fitness Instructor. Who knew what that was going to look like!
I orginally saw it as a part-time gig…Since then, I have taught hundred’s of young people & teens across the GTA from fitness classes, to dance-a-thons, to mental health weeks, to warm ups at large group fitness days.
I have hosted my own classes in the community, taught in gyms, traveled to Jamaica to teach, been in a commercial (not sure it ever aired..lol), taught people from every walk of life & age group.
I have worked with people of all abilities from wheelchairs, to Down’s, to many mental & physical differences. We have danced with weights, in the water, from a chair & more. To now ONLINE classes & connecting the world with dance! I have met & made some of the BEST friendships with incredible woman & men along the way & continue to. We have laughed, sweat, moved & grooved & let self expression reign for a decade!
This moment opened the doors to my LOVE of making a difference for people. This moment opened the door to being trained in Laughter Yoga, Dance for Parkinson’s, Zumba Toning, Zumba Sentao, Aqua Zumba, Zumba Kids & kids Jr., Zumba Core, Stretch classes & more.
I am forever grateful & thankful for the past decade of Love, Laughter, Self Expression & being surrounded by beautiful people along this journey!
I cannot wait to see what the next decade has in store & I am grateful to have the opportunity to share it all with YOU!
THANK YOU for being a part of my life!!
Zumba love to all,
Tammy xoxo

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:

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

Summer is Here to Stay!

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!

Much love,

Tammy

Summer is Commmminnnngggg!!!!

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!

2352 St. Clair Avenue West in the Party Room at Oscar Romero.  See! It is ACTUALLY called the Party Room!! HOW MUCH FUN IS THAT??!!!

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!!!

No Zumba Wednesday March 21, 2018

Hi Ladies,

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!

Tammy
