Here is another great testimonial for all of you out there that are scared or a little nervous to venture into dance classes. No matter what level of dancing you have, even if you have no experience, our dance class is about coming together and working hard to accomplish a common goal. Come out have fun, do your best and enjoy something new and exciting. Here’s what one of our recent dance class attendants had to say…
“I took Erica’s dance class and am so happy I did! Erica is truly dedicated to her student’s success. Rhythm has never been my strong area, so I thought I would try her dance class to see if there was any hope for me. While I found the first two classes challenging, by the 3rd class I really started to prove that there was a dancer hidden inside this body after all!”

Here a testimonial Erica received the other day… Thought it would be nice to share the positive energy and show you how others are benefiting from Erica’s personal training efforts.
“Its such a great experience working with a trainer who is as invested in helping me obtain my physical goals as I am . Erica’s commitment to helping me accomplish my goals has been profound and highly effective. I love the results and feel great! Thank you Erica for your dedication to my overall wellness. You are so appreciated! :)”
Have you tried energy work? You’d be surprised what this can do for your mind, body and soul…
Reiki is the application of life force Energy to the chakras or main energy centers of the body. This initiates a cleansing within a persons energy system which can be experienced as a release of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy blockages. This release is felt as a healing and allows one to connect with their true self thus enjoy a state of balance, happiness, and relaxation.
Come visit the studio for a energy treatment from Reiki Master and Teacher Erica Otto – Balance and align your soul.
Quotes from The Four Agreements By: Don Miguel Ruzi
“When you believe something, you assume you are right, and you may even destroy relationships inorder to defend your position. Let go of the need to defend your position.”
When your always trying to be right, and need to prove it… You risk the chance of pushing some pretty important people away. Take a step back, release the need and realize that you don’t always have to be right and you don’t always have to prove it. Your feel better about yourself and less stressed to always be heard. Hear your self, and prove to yourself that you can remain respectful to others while processing your own needs of why you need to be right…
Quote from The Four Agreements By: Don Miguel Ruzi
“All the magic you possess is based on your word, and you cast spells all the time with you opinions. You can either put a spell on someone with your word, or you can release someone from a spell.”
Next time your having a conversation with someone, be aware of what magic your words are working… Be aware of where your words are coming from as they will either put a spell or release a someone from a spell…. Remember to choose your words wisely, have them always come from a place of love, light and respect.

Just writing a little entry to say to all of our members that I am very excited to meet all of you and be a part of the team!
To get us started I am going to share a health tip of the day:
Did you know we are made of 70% water and hte daily recommened water intake is 8 glasses of water every day. Are you getting enough?
Also did you now that thoughts influence how water molecules interact with each other… positive thoughts lead to beautiful formations. Masaru Emoto takes picture of this phenomena. Check it out here. For more information on Masaru Emoto’s work click here.
In a recent study at the University of Derby, depressed patients given salsa dancing lessons improved their moods significantly by the end of the nine week hip swiveling therapy. Researchers site the endorphin boots of exercise, plus the social interaction and concentration that dancing requires, and the increase self-confidence from learning a new skill as components to dancing’s benefits.
The physically expressive nature of dance also helps people release and thereby recognize pent-up feelings, the first step in dealing with them. Excerpt from Psychology Today August 2010 pg. 42
Regardless of your reason to dance our Saturday class is not only fun and a great way to learn some new moves, but a great cardio workout.
