first day of the challenge by challenging my students

Today I taught my class Yoga Booty Ballet.  I teach Monday nights at the Indigo Studio in Chicago.

Given that this was the first day of the challenge I made sure my class was challenging for me and my students.  I have conditioned myself over the weekend by attending a few yoga classes to get my strength up to be an example for my class.

I barred my assets!

This was my first time taking any kind of ballet since I was 3. Even though people sometimes mistake me for a dancer, I am certainly not one! Still, despite my weak coordination and ADD, I do like trying to dance and Jahleelah's enthusiasm and positivity made the experience really enjoyable. I would take this again.

New Year New Challenges

Wow it's a new year and the start of a new decade 2010! Looking forward to this new year's challenge! Yes, blogging is a great way to track progress and stay motivated.

I've never been really active until a few years ago when I joined the gym. Now I'm addicted to yoga and dance classes.

From West Africa to Central Park

My Saturday started with an 11:30 West Afrian Dance class at Alvin Ailey Extention on 9th Ave. and W55th st. There has been a lot of talk on the blogs about post New Year frustration with crowds of people at gyms and yoga studios etc. Here is one to top all of that: a new semester of children's classes at the Ailey School. Adorable kids in tutus and tights, IN MY BLOODY WAY.

Wake Up Call

Step Forward

Wake Up Call

On Practice

Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.

Workout

Zumba with Eric

Sammy was sick so we got a sub. Young asian man, big smile, adidas warm up pants, tee shirt and microphone. He started with a hugely energetic yell and a slightly violent punching motion as we did a semi-salsa step warmup. I thought dark, racial profiling thoughts: This guy has no latin rhythm. He's mechanical, and overly enthused, and very asian. IN FACT, he proved to be an amazing dancer.
