I didn’t realize it had been over a week since I’ve blogged. 🙁 I’ve been thinking. A lot. And doing. A lot. And sometimes in the process of “doing” it’s easy to forget to just be. When I slowed down long enough to have a clear thought I realized this month marks an entire decade I’ve been in group fitness. I was a late bloomer but I have NO DOUBT God was leading me all along. I’m proud. And astonished. I can’t believe I’m still around with all of the challenges, surgeries, breakdowns, shifts in the industry and flat out doubt and fear circulating in my mind. But I am. And I am so thankful.
People are often surprised to find out I was a yoga teacher long before I was a Zumba teacher. I know it’s pretty much impossible to believe I have even a little bit of quiet in me if you’ve seen me turn into Lucy Lunatic to some salsa music. Yoga was my start. I then had an unexpected Pilates start when the gym where I worked needed an instructor….in fifteen minutes. I had been studying it but, wow, what a way to get introduced. And then, I bet you can’t guess in a MILLION YEARS (unless you were in the small majority of people who actually let me teach them this format) what I did next…..
Step. I actually taught step. For a couple of years. I know. And, no, I wasn’t that great.
