What I love about being out in nature, is how it takes us out of ourselves. Our worries and concerns, the minutiae of life. It allows us to connect to something that is greater than us. Regardless of whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not, in the expanse of nature it is impossible to not feel connected, because you are! To all that have come before and to all that will come after, but most importantly to all that are living NOW. presence and our being here is vital to well-being.
Happiness is contagious. If you spend time with happy people you are more likely to be happy yourself. A study from 2008 by the Harvard Medical School showed that “Happiness is also a collective phenomenon that spreads through social networks like an emotional contagion.” For the whole article click here.
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!”

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…

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
