Dance to the beat. Zumba is not just exercise, it's a lifestyle!

The way we exercise has indeed changed with social distancing, but that does not mean we cannot keep moving and enjoying at home. Dancing will improve everything from your overall fitness levels to your mood. 

Zumba is a combination of dance movements with a series of aerobic routines. The idea is to develop, strengthen, and give flexibility to the body.

That is the rational explanation, the practical and physical part, but Zumba has another, more important and deeper meaning. It does not matter if it is at home or the gym, Zumba means happiness, joy, disconnecting from everything for a while. Through dance, we can express many feelings that we may not be able to explain with words. Zumba class is my time! Work does not matter; problems do not matter; other people do not matter either. It may sound selfish, and it is. Sometimes we have to be selfish to do what we are passionate about.

One of the characteristics of this activity is to share that special moment with other people, even though everyone dances at their own pace. That has changed a bit. Like many other disciplines, Zumba went from being a group activity to a more solitary one. We dance alone in our house, watching a screen. However, this has not discouraged us, on the contrary; it has made us find a new place to connect with ourselves. We still have contact with the teacher and the interaction is virtual, but the energy feels the same.

You just need to organize your work time and the tasks you do at home and reserve your happy hour in a bright space in your house. You need comfortable clothes and shoes and your water bottle. You do not need any previous physical training and there are no weight or age restrictions. You just need to have a lot of positive energy and a desire to dance.
