Picking up an old hobby can be quite refreshing.
In Chicago, I used to do Aerial Silk and Aerial Yoga. I have been looking for a place to continue this practice for two years. Today I reflected back on my first Aerial class and to where I arrived now. I admit I am very rusty, but with consistency and determination I know I will be better than ever. Aerial Silks is one of the few things I can engage in and be completely concentrated on it. I’m not thinking about
work, my to-do list or my life stressors. It’s just me, my body, and the silk. I encourage YOU to find a self-care activity and rejuvenates you the same way this movement does for me!
Here is this week’s video!
Here’s why I move:
Today in our society, there is a stigma associated with expressing one’s thoughts and opinions. As an Art & Dance Movement Therapist, I firmly believe that I was created to help people express themselves freely using their spirit, soul, and body. I became an Art & Dance/Movement Therapist because they are the two forms of communication I use to express myself to others and with God. There are times that I am unable to verbalize what it is that I am feeling inside of me. Whether it be happiness, sorrow, joy, anger, etc. It is easier for me to show people with colors and movement the sensations taking over my body. I firmly believe that everyone in this world is gifted and talented! It’s a matter of accessing those skills/abilities and sharing your thoughts/opinions freely with the world. I hope that I have been able to inspire you to explore within yourself and have the courage to express yourself boldly!
