This week I've been filling in for a couple of Intstructors and teaching her OLDER ADULT classes. AKA " Nice & Easy." No real age restriction. Anyone is welcome to join. It's a gentle type of class.
I've been Grooving ALL of them ( cuz I felt like doing it).
THEY HAD A BLAST!!
Today I taught one that I'd subbed at before. The participants filed into the studio and a couple of theme came right up to me and requested that I "do that AMAZING dance class that I did the last time" so, GROOVING IT IS BABY!
-> some actual quotes <-
"This was the BEST class I have EVER done..."
"I want more of this kind of thing.."
"We need this!! I didn't feel left out because I could do it the way the I wanted."
"That was a VERY good class."
"PLEASE come back??!"
Who needs CRACK when you get a buzz from seeing the look on those faces while they're moving their bodies their OWN way!!!
Two ladies in the class had never done a class before. One must have been in her mid to late 80s. They suprised themselves.
Another woman who is the youngest of the bunch (must be early 30s). She seems painfully shy. Doesn't really talk to anyone. Doesn't smile too much.
I happened to catch a glimpse of her at a moment during the class. I wish I had a camera or could have taped it...
She went inside herself and just let everything go.... With her eyes closed, she moved gracefully and looked about as "connected" as one could be. I got goosebumps....
Pass the Kleenex !
The moments and quotes from this past week are why I teach Fitness.
