Zen in Zumba

Free your mind, the rest will follow.

What if we could live la vida Zumba in a competition-free-zone?  Can we forget the cameras, mirrors, the numbers, the crowd? The clothes? While “ditching the workout,” let’s also ditch our fears of how we look, how well we dance (or teach), whether we get it right. Join the party! Let the ego go and rock the flow.

This isn’t American Idol. Zumba is a win-win. Let’s enjoy this robust good-for-us music- and dance-filled passion. As my Grandma used to say, what’s not to love?  But, if we’re honest, students and teachers alike might let fear or insecurities drown out even the most provocative beat. It can throw us off.

This yogi is on a mission to find more Zen in Zumba.  Let’s bring a namaste mentality into classes and clubs.

The light in me respects and bows to the light in you.

What’s a party without lights? Let em all shine.
