I started teaching back in the days when the only things on the group fitness schedules were Step and Body Conditioning.
The fitness industry has grown tremendously since then and I’ve been riding the wave ever since.
But it’s fun how life takes us full circle.
I can vividly remember standing at the barre during my very first year in dancing school.
The owner of the studio would come down, fix our little feet in 1st position and tap us on the tush to get us to keep our tiny butts from sticking out.
When I make adjustments in barre class these days, I am immediately thrusted back in time to those days at the barre.
And it makes me smile.
I feel lucky.
Lucky to be able to pass along my love for dance and also help students feel stronger & more in tune to their body.
My 4 year old mind fell in love with movement during those very early years.
Curious…when did you first discovery your ability to move your body in a way that made a positive impact on your spirit?
I know you're super busy but shoot me a quick one liner reply at email@example.com
The more we know about each other, the better I can serve you and help build on that positive connection you have with your body.
Until next week....Breathe. And enjoy this holiday season.
What's Happening with JBird Fitness
It's not a coincidence that the featured workout series this month is barre-centric. Like I said above, it has influenced my fitness training from the beginning. But most importantly I have seen it transform my students. It influences your movements on a daily basis, it enhances your posture and when you're done with a barre workout, you feel like you worked hard yet you have peacefulness which radiates from your body.
It's the BEST way I know how to keep you moving this month in the MOST positive way possible.
So without further ado...
