Dance Dance Dance!

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.

This is a progressive class as each builds on another in choreography. Registration is required.

New research

Exciting new research has been release regarding aging and muscle growth. IT used to be believed that after a certain age 79 plus that it was very difficult to build new muscle in fact virtually impossible. It is now known that it is not the fact; in reality and elderly individual following the same training program as a twenty year old will make the same muscular gains, thought they will take longer to adapt. What makes this research exciting is that it proves it is never too late to become active and start weight training. You will derive benefits whether you do it preventatively in your youth,  start in middle age, or even as a senior.

So dust off those running shoes and spandex, invest in some weights, get a trainer, go to the gym, and get going!

 

We are live!!! Finally operational!

Thank you for your patience as I transitioning to my brand new studio. Unfortunately my ambitious blogging resolution fell to the back burner whilst the transition was happening. However  now that the ball is rolling I am happy to report I am back on track and will be here regularly with tips, tools, and inspiration.

Come by and visit 1241 Village Green Way, Squamish.
