After a whirlwind visit with family in California, I arrived home today ready for some ZUMBA® fun! Who’s in?
I went to support my Mother through a family bereavement and although we had some tender sad moments, my Mother had already promised the good folk of Carmel Valley some ZUMBA® lead by me to cheer everyone up – and it really did.
The class was mostly made up of my Mum’s generation and so, in the gentle breeze & the warm sunshine of the California fall I gave them some soothing ZUMBA® dances to ease & rejuvenate the heart & soul.
They felt it would be easier for them to follow the steps if I had my back to them, but each time I turned to check 1. if they were ok & 2. if they were still there (!) I was greeted with the biggest smiles and giggles. Fantastic!
I left them with a breakdown of some of the basic moves, such as the ‘Beto Shuffle’ and left them with the promise that my Mother will continue leading her own classes once I was gone back to the UK. They LOVE it!
So, I’m back, classes resume with me on Wednesday at 9am and then again at 1pm, followed by Thursday at 9:45 and for those evening birds, 8pm – I truly can’t WAIT to see you all there!
OH! And don’t forget – there’s still time to BRING YOUR FRIEND FOR FREE (as long as they haven’t been before) – let’s spread the ZUMBA® groove thang!
