What is your passion?


That one thing that always comes back to you, inspires you to take action and helps you be in harmony with your inner balance and higher self?


ABOUT ME

I’ve always loved to dance, since I was four-five years old. Nevertheless, dancing, for me, is more than the activity of moving your body to (or even without) music. It’s our inner rhythm, our compass, our most natural self-expression. And it’s in all of us. Everybody is designed to move freely and be in balance with their body. 

It is unnatural to be static, sedentary and in a misalignment to our somatic intelligence and mind&body connection. The way we feel about ourselves is imprinted in our posture, poise and grace. For all genders. When one feels confident and connected to their emotions, their body directly synthesizes that cellular information and displays it through their movement.

When I started my wellness blog, I hesitated to share my story. I wasn`t sure If I should be that vulnerable online with so many people who don`t know me, and even more challenging, with those who do!

I realized, however, that my own transformational story is the very reason I “heard” and followed my calling to become a motivational speaker, writer, wellness blogger, and – as of now – a health coach. In addition, the mission of my platform is to show that vulnerability is the first critical step toward healing.

As Peter Nivio Zarlenga said, “To come to be you, you must have a vision of Being, a Dream, a Purpose, and a Principle. You will become what your vision is.” 

During my undergraduate studies at the University of Washington (from where I graduated in 2018, with a double major and honors in dance), I was first exposed to the healing properties of dance therapy, mindful eating, meditation and the practice of journaling to metacognition-enhancing prompts.

Gradually, yet steadily, my whole life transformed! I built strong confidence in myself; learned how to listen to my intuition; gained the courage to become an entrepreneur, and (most importantly) followed my passion to create a spiritual business that weaves my intrapersonal and interpersonal skills (based on my degree in International Studies and previous educational experience in Cross-Cultural Communications and Sociology), and my love for dance and mindful living.

Finally, the spiral has come to a completion and I have the privilege to create a platform that serves to encourage and inspire all of you to say “YES” to your dreams, your needs and desires.

As Joseph Campbell wisely: “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”.

The reason I named my brand Dance Fit Ideas is because dance symbolizes my passion for helping people be more connected to their emotional, mental and physical health.  Fitness is more than an aesthetic value. In fact, it begins with our intention to be fit, in the very idea to change, become better and feel more aligned to who we are, and who we can become once we become truly connected to our ultimate potential.

If you are looking for ways to become more empowered, more confident, more loving, more giving, more centered, more grounded, more appreciated and more successful – in all areas of your life, subscribe to my blog to receive weekly motivation and resources how to achieve all of your fitness and wellness goals.

And if you need more assistance, please consider the coaching programs that I offer.

Curate Your Own Happiness Ritual

Curate Your Own Happiness Ritual

The quality happy time we spend with our friends, partners, and family members is indispensable and incompatible to anything else. But, nevertheless, for our personal growth, we also require an individual “solo” time with ourselves to reflect, replenish and refill our own happiness-trunk.

If we constantly measure our moments of happiness through experiences involving an external condition, we are trapped in a co-dependence on sources outside of ourselves to bring us comfort and fulfillment.

Therefore, please ask yourself:  “Do I have a ritual for self-sourced happiness?” ;”One that doesn’t include other people?”

It can be any of the following:

Perhaps writing in your journal? Or going for a walk? 

Or reading a book? Maybe drawing?

Treating yourself with a massage? Listening to uplifting music? Meditating?

Playing an instrument? Or cooking a meal? Or reorganizing your closet?

 

———- Whatever that practice means for you, it is uniquely yours, and you are the only one in command to execute it and show up for it on a regular basis.

•>Accordingly, my second question for You to ask Yourself is:

“How often Do I Make Time (in a day) To Be Happy?”

***
I know you are busy. And so I am. However, I know how much more motivated, organized and self-determined I am when I invest thoughts and energy into my own well-being.

My invitation to all of us is to focus on spending at least a few minutes in a twenty-four-hour frame to replenish our senses and do something we love…in our own company…for as much or as little time we can find in a hectic day:  even if that comes down to just listening to a song we love, looking at a beautiful picture, or simply closing our eyes and sending thoughts of self-care and affirmation that we are doing the best we can in any given situation.

Coping With Challenges: In 3 Strategic Steps

Coping With Challenges: In 3 Strategic Steps

Challenges are, no tautology intended, challenging and always require a direct investment of mental courage and cheering self-talk.

When we perceive difficulties as welcomed transitions to something inherently better, we adopt a more peaceful and determined mindset that we can deal with everything that Life sends our way: both positive and negative. 

In fact, very often that which we have perceived as negative gifts us with a precious opportunity to learn a new skill, experience a new sensation and grow as human beings.

The steps I follow when I am dealing with any transition/challenge are the following:

1) Search for signs; 2) Show up for the assignment; 3) Understand the lesson.

I. Searching For Signs 

Signs are sneaky to catch and quite often blurry. To dismantle their euphemistic nature, we have to spend time in silence decipher their rooted meaning in meditation. Our gut and intuition are impeccable in their advice but, in order to understand it, we need to detach our ego-mind from interfering with the message that we are receiving.

And that only happens if we don’t maneuver the interpretation of the sign towards the direction we (think*) want. Because our intuition would often tell us to do the opposite of what our comfort level is.

II. Showing Up For The Assignment 

That one is very individual depending on our current situation and life circumstance: can be anything from ending/reshifting relationships; moving to a new job/location; going back to school/or leaving it altogether; transitioning to a new career path, etc.

But it has to be done in order for us to experience whatever it is that our heart truly wants.

III. Understand The Lesson 

Understanding the lesson can only happen after we have learned it, and there is no shortcut to learning without showing up for the practice.

As Charles Bukowski said: What matters most is how well you walk through the fire.

In that context, we can’t learn how to walk through any challenges unless we take action and experience the lesson.

***** ⤵️

To Recap: 

I. Our meditation practice shows us how to interpret the sign(s).

II. Showing up for the knowledge we gather is our initiation to the lesson we must learn.

III. Experiencing going through the passage discloses the purpose of the lesson and its significance for our growth.
