The Four Agreements – Release the need to be right

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…

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.
