Planning a wedding can be one of the most stressful times in a person's life. Some days of planning can leave you distraught and completely run down. During the process I have had days that I am literally in tears on my way into work and once I walk through the door and see my clients waiting for me to teach I am immediately inspired by them and at peace.
Even on those extremely stressful days I go in and take that deep breathe during the warm up and truly do not think about anything except how lucky I am to be an instructor for the rest of class. I love teaching Barre. I love the music and the tempo. The beat drives an electric energy that helps me take my clients and myself to a greater level of being. I have amazing clients and I care about making a difference in their lives. For one hour I have the power and pleasure to create a stress free and FUN environment. I need these classes just as much, probably more, than every client in there.
In life, especially during high stress times, it is so important to find something healthy in life that helps you release... allows you to take a step back and find appreciation and focus. Teaching is my own version of Wedding Boot Camp. It helps keep me stay grounded and has allowed me to stay "Wedding Ready" physically but more importantly mentally and for that I am so grateful!
