Well I have officially been in Sacramento for 2 weeks and just today I got 2 permanent classes..all my own :) I will be teaching Thursday nights at the Antelope 24 HR Fitness 7:30 P.M. ZUMBA and then Friday mornings at 10:00 AM at the Roseville 24 Hr Fitness. It felt so good to teach a class after 2 weeks and I think they were a little shocked at the craziness of this Gringa from small town Utah but I think they liked it overall. The energy of the class was great and the new faces to get to know was exciting. As most of you know it was very hard for me to leave my classes in Utah. I felt like I had built them from the bottom and they were truly my babies, however, I also know that I am growing so much with this move. It has been a good chance to re-evaluate my life and get back to basics.
So here I am starting fresh in Sacramento, a law-school widow with a whole lot of love for this job that I get to do. I love fitness and I just feel so lucky to get to do what I do.
Next on the agenda? Gotta get me a pilates class to teach..my core is screaming for it.
Ok, so once again coming back from the dead...I really am a horrible blogger but I want to get personal today. How specifically has ZUMBA helped you? changed you? Made you see things differently? What is it that makes you keep coming back for more? Dig Deep and spill your guts!!!
Here we are, January of 2011 and my Zumba journey which began in 2008 continues to grow and amaze me everyday! I would be so selfish and ignorant if i didn't express how grateful I am to everyone that I have met in connection with in my classes. I know I rarely post on this blog and so not many will probably see this, but all the same it must be said. Everytime I go to teach a Zumba class I am so grateful for this so-called "job" I have. I am grateful for Zumba and the way it makes me feel. I am grateful for Latin Music which is truly a gift to the world with the power it has to change emotions. I am grateful for a healthy body that allows me to dance and express myself through movement. I am grateful for facilities that let me teach my classes. I am more than anything grateful for the people that attend my classes! I think I have the best classes in the world (Not because of my instruction by any means) simply because of the energy, smiles, and friendships that are made there. I am grateful for newcomers who take that scary step into the room and wonder what is going on and then 10 minutes into class can't stop smiling. I am grateful for my regulars who amaze me at their consistency(talk about inspiration) And last but certainly not least I am grateful for a husband that supports me in Zumba and the endless hours of choreography and latin music constantly within the walls of our home :).
As I reflect on this past year I feel so utterly spoiled for all that I have been able to experience and do. Thanks again for everyone's support and let's make 2011 even better!! Zumba thanks and Love!!
I am a fitness crazed lady (who also teaches Jr. High History on the side) I love working out in a group setting because the energy of others feeds me to keep going!! My classes are the best part of everyday!!
