Get Out Those Jazz Hands. It’s Friday!

When I do my intakes with clients, as hard as it may be for them to recall how old they were when they took their first course of antibiotics, or whether they had their tonsils out before or after they developed some horrendous auto-immune inflammatory disease, the toughest question to answer is always “What are your favourite hobbies?”

Over the summer, I did a Nourish Your Soul week where we took a little detour from food and looked at all the other things that nourish us (a clever way to promote my Nourish Your Soul retreat that takes place January 10th-17th with just one spot still open, yes?).

Though I am still writing my blog, I am on holidays this week and next. I have taken two weeks off of teaching and seeing clients to do what fills me up all whole like and one of those things is taking a bunch of art classes and workshops. Something else I have taken up again, dancing! Yes, that is me up there, front and centre, bursting with the desire to shake out my jazz hands (and straighten my bow-tie).

n786245382_1935675_189 My dance career peaked at around the age of 10, when I was in 11 performances in a single season, dancing every day of the week- jazz, tap, ballet, and a little dabble in musical theatre. Recently, I have started working out with an amazingly awesome new personal trainer, Andrea Palen, in an effort to feel my absolute best for the January retreat. We dance our warm up. We stretch, we reach, we bend, we balance and we shake, shake, shake our sillies out. It is the best warm up ever. Screw that running on the spot mumbo jumbo.

I have seriously taken to this dancing thing. I am not sure I am quite ready to tie my tap shoes on, but getting closer. Every morning I have been starting my day off with a dance party for one and it is an amazing way to get lymph flowing, blood circulating, lungs expelling, fresh oxygen pouring in and a giggle in to my day. So in honour of hitting the halfway of my holiday, we are getting out of the kitchen and onto the dance floor. Turn up the volume and wiggle your waggles away!

And what do you think that little Cowgirl number was to? What else?
