My body conditioning had improved greatly after two years of Iynegar Yoga so it was time for me to investigate other exercise options. I bought a ticket for a Zumba fundraiser one Saturday morning. It was a Latin/Salsa inspired dance class led By Sharon Delbridge who I recognized as one of the Reh-Fit Centre's fitness instructors. It was a great deal of fun and I was able to keep up with the group for the full 60 minutes. Thus inspired, I started the Zumba Gold class with Sharon. Sharon also teaches a really great Vinyasa Yoga flow class at Reh-Fit. She uses yoga poses and breathing as a way to quiet the body after a cardio workout and let in the healing feelings for mind, body, and spirit.
Amazon has a great selection of Zumba DVDs, game systems, weights and clothing.
