Somehow, we went from fall to winter in a matter of moments? Somehow I went shopping for Halloween decorations for our house party on Saturday and there were suddenly Christmas decorations everywhere!? And somehow these past two weeks flew by faster than the speed of light. Here is a re-cap of what has been going on at Mind Body Barre™…
On Monday, October 24th we had our STRIDE for HOPE event at the studio, where we raised funds for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Having two classes back-to-back (Mind Body Barre followed by STRIDE-Shaun T’s Real Intense Dance Exercise) there were many of you who stayed to show support by double dipping, double sessions! An incredible amount of support has been shown by each of you, whether you attended the event, sent us a text message saying you were thinking of us or whether you were there is spirit, we cannot thank you enough; and as I said in class, one person really can make a difference.
The rest of the week was a whirlwind of newness! Lot’s of new people visiting our studio, and it has been so great getting know all of you. Each time you walk through those doors, you instantly become part of a much greater consciousness, here to help raise the energetic vibration of our planet, making it better, brighter, more beautiful and stronger. I feel so honored to know each of you.
On Saturday, Mia (the newest member to the Mind Body Barre™ Team- who you will all be introduced to very shortly in an upcoming email!) gave a great treatment one of our clients. Mia is an exceptional healer, bringing to us her skills of Master Reflexology, Reiki Healing, and Touch Therapy. I am very excited to have her presence in our studio.
Michelle, the winner of our LOVE Your Body Challenge, has been doing an incredible job; attending class regularly and totally gaining strength and stamina. More to come on this later!
Being that today is Halloween and Monday, most of the Halloween festivities occurred over the weekend. My boyfriend and I decided to have a house party on Saturday where we decided to go “all-out” with decorations. We had everything from fog machines, strobe lights, spider webs, full out dance music/dance floor, cackling witches to the most amazing drinks and food- and who could of course forget the winning Halloween costume of the evening- MC HAMMER (picture below)
So what does my silly Halloween party have to do with Mind Body Barre™ Fitness & Healing Studio? My point is, that life can fly by so quickly (as the week did!), and we can so easily get caught up in our everyday responsibilities- which is why it is so important to take some time for yourself to have some fun and spend time with loved ones!
I’d also like to share with you an important lesson regarding LISTENING TO YOUR BODY! On Saturday, I knew I had to run around and get ready for this party- and my body kept telling me slow down, eat and take a nap from the crazy week I had. I stubbornly ignored my intuition on sleep- and today I am paying for it with a sore throat and sniffly nose! Long Story Short- LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!
You can expect a fun Halloween evening later tonight at the studio, filled with little tricks-and-treats.
Blessed Samhain Everyone!
Take a Class!
