For years after I quit dancing, I would pop into yoga classes on the regular and it felt pretty good in my body - similar to the full body experience that a dance class used to be for me.
But then something happened.
I started to get BORED.
I started getting jealous and bitter towards the friends I had who were still dancing and posting their happy dance videos and photos on Facebook.
I started getting drunk at karaoke and performing “All That Jazz” with a full-on dance routine whenever I had the chance.
my inner dancer was calling out to me, but I had been squelching her in downward dog.
The first time I made a dance video at home in my bedroom and posted it online, was the first time I felt that rush return: the exhilaration and joy that, for me, can only come from expressing myself through dance.
“Coming out” as a dancer - when my identity for years thus far had been building as a wellness professional - was pretty scary, but my soul knew it was time.
And I never looked back.
so what about you?
Are you hiding behind your yoga poses?
Have an inner dancer that’s been too scared to emerge?
It can be way more complicated than just getting back to dance class. (Believe me, I know from experience and I know that walking into a dance class after a long time away can be one of the HARDEST things ever.)
But I can tell you from experience that is IS possible. And freeing. And FUN.
If you’re curious about what’s possible once you unleash your own inner dancer, I have an invitation for you. I’m gathering a group for my upcoming Dance Yourself Free program. It’s all about guiding you in reviving dance in your life - in your own unique way - so that you can get back to YOU and infuse all areas of your life (even your yoga life!) with confidence and creativity.
