If I had not experienced the powerful benefits of shaking it, I would not have believed it! Writing, teaching and coaching women and men about sex, I consider myself quite open-minded. However, the twerking, shaking and focus on women’s butts left me cold, until two weeks ago. Remember the old phrase “Try it, you’ll like it?” It is true. As humans, we often judge others before we reach understanding. When we sit in judgment, we can’t see what is before us. We simply close our minds and hearts. I propose that you open your mind, and your heart and try it for yourself.
I was raised in a very stiff upper lipped family. My father’s parents were British. My mother was raised by her grandmother right off the boat from The Ukraine. We didn’t shake anything in my household and certainly didn’t watch or talk about anyone who did. In fact, when Elvis was on television, we didn’t watch him, because my mother found him vulgar.
I was not allowed to wear short skirts at home, and certainly was not allowed to reveal cleavage, nor did my mother. These old ingrained patterns can be hard to break. If you want to live a long healthy life and have fun doing it, loosening up is definitely to our advantage. Breaking free of patterns and social regulations can be immensely freeing. Letting go of what others think of us, is key to enjoying an abundant, wealthy, happy and fulfilling life.

3. Shaking Your Booty Awakens Your Sexual Center
No matter how long it has been since you have had sex, the moves in Zumba get your pelvic region moving. When your pelvis moves, so does your sexual energy. Sexual energy and emotions can become stuck. When sexual energy gets stuck, you can become bitchy, closed-minded and controlling. Sound like anyone you know? Moving the pelvis has the added benefit of opening up your sacral chakra as well as your root chakra, which allows your creativity to flow as well as sexuality. The root chakra is located in the perineum (between the anus and vagina in women, and anus and base of the scrotum in men).
My Zumba Teacher – Lucy Harris
I love my Zumba instructor. She is fit, sexy, fun and energetic. Moreover she has got some moves on her that would make
jealous. Lucy who began dancing at age 4, took 4 – 6 classes a week till her later high school years. She then gave dance a break and played basketball. Lucy’s mother, Kathy Hart supported her then by paying for and taking Lucy to all her dance classes.
She continues to attend her classes, often taking over for Lucy, and well able to hold her own in moves and endurance. Kathy is fit and youthful. Clearly Zumba has kept her body in great shape. I have yet to see anyone who regularly attends Zumba classes look dour or miserable. Zumba brings back the HAPPY! When we are happy we thrive. Everyone I have talked to about their experience with Zumba has said that feeling happier is the number one benefit.
