You Don’t Have to be a Dancer to Dance

I am not a Dancer!Dance

 

I don’t have rhythm!

 

Hello, I am critically Caucasian!

These are just a couple of reasons I hear when I invite people to attend and AromaDance or Mindful Movement Class.

I get it and I was guilty of it as well. I was introduced to AromaDance in September of 2014 by a friend. I was skeptical, was an athlete not a dancer. Over the years my tune has changed.

The more I dance the more in tune I am with myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. There are sometimes I have to put on music loud with strong heavy beats and dance out deep heavy emotions. Other times it is The Greatest Showman Soundtrack or other musicals. I have come to appreciate what my body can do as I pretend to be a ballerina to beautiful instrumental music. As I connect with my body through movement and the music it can even be a spiritual experience.

Our bodies are meant to move

“In less than two generations, physical activity has dropped by 20% in the U.K. and 32% in the U.S. In China, the drop is 45% in less than one generation. Vehicles, machines and technology now do our moving for us. What we do in our leisure time doesn’t come close to making up for what we’ve lost” – designedtomove.org

Studies have shown that movement affects every aspect of our physical and emotional health. It helps regulate on hormones and metabolism, supports circulation & respiration,  aids in digestion, immunity and detoxification of the body. Movement that you enjoy improves your mood.

“Dance is more than the exploring of different ways to make a shape or learning a series of steps to music; it is a way of moving that uses the body as an instrument of expression and communication. – http://www.camarilloacademy.com/2011/09/why-dance/

The benefits of dancing are innumerable. Here are a few of the reasons I think EVERYONE should dance.

  1. It allows self expression. There is no right or wrong way to do it.
  2. Provides a physical and emotional release.
  3. Improves Strength, Flexibility, and Endurance
  4. Improves your connection to your body which improves self-confidence and self-esteem.
  5. Improves mental functioning
  6. Improves balance and spatial awareness
  7. It’s fun!!!!

Don’t over think it

You don’t have to go to a club, just turn on your favorite song and start moving your body. You know your own physical limitations. You can dance sitting down, just move your hands and feet to the music. The more you do it the stronger your body will get.

You don’t have to have rhythm, you are not being judged. This is just about taking care of yourself. But you can be brave and invite your friends, your spouse, children, and/or grandchildren to join you.

Sway

About a year ago my husband and I attended Royalty and Romance from 3 Key Elements where we learned about swaying. This has aligned our marriage better than anything else we do. We end each day with swaying with each other.

You Don’t Have to be a Dancer to Dance

Just put on some music and move!

Essential Oils, Health

A Healer in Every Home

When I was first introduced to Essential Oils I laughed and said, “I am not a Hippy. I don’t believe in that kind of stuff.” It was not until I was recovering from a knee surgery that I final agreed to try Deep Blue because the stuff from my doctor was not relieving the symptoms I was experiencing. I was amazing at how quickly I got relief. I started using more and more of the doTerra products and learning the science behind them.

I had been using them in my home for a few years when Ronai Brumett shared her experience with me and asked way I was not a doTerra Wellness Advocate and getting my oils at better then wholesale. That is what brought me to this point.

I wanted to help other discover what I had, which is that with a book and a box of doTerra Essential Oils I could support my families physical and emotional well-being.

Holistic Health Practitioner, Laura Jacobs’ motto is “A Healer in Every Home”. Her motto has resonated with me for years, but I have not known how to share that message. So, I became a Certified Essential Oil Coach, I thought it would become easier for me to support others in understanding how to use Essential Oils to support their well-being.

My goals is share doTerra and the benefits of Essential Oils with as many people as possible through sampling, wellness consultations, and classes. I want to empower families like Ronai did for me. I want there to be a Healer in every home!

I have an amazing team of doTerra Wellness Advocates that also love to teach and support others. We are excited to help others as Ronai says, use doTerra daily. Check out her DO YOU DOTERRA DAILY? posts.

doTerra has an amazing Empowered Life Series to support continuing education. One of my favorites is Empowered Life Series: Mood and Emotional Health, because I truly believe that our emotional health effects our physical health.
