It’s that time again, the start of a new year when we make a long list of resolutions that after a month feel like restrictions. Don’t be so hard on yourselves, there are ways to make these resolutions become little improvements in your life that are positive and fun that eventually make a huge difference in the bigger picture.
I for one am not motivated at all by the run of the mill gym culture. So mundane, cold and uninspiring. You can pay for all the sessions in advance or as you go along without the risk of bill collectors ruining your credit or stalking your peaceful life.
Lately there has been an influx of exciting new classes developed around more creative themes such as acrobatic work outs, hula-hooping to rock n roll, and even one that involves a shot of sacred cacao and dancing with your eyes closed without restriction. So I have put together a fun little list of classes to get you active, make new friends and promote self-love. Dare I say they are the coolest fitness classes I have come across ever! Keep on top of these studios as they have a very interesting rotation of classes throughout the year. They are so very morish.
The meme below is the outcome of what a cold hard gym with instructors shouting rehearsed motivational blurbs does to me. These instructors are brilliant and friendly.
The Wild Chocolate Club
We will guide you on a journey into your body and hold a beautiful sacred cacao ceremony to flood your body with active ingredients to help open up your hearts. There are no steps to learn, no right or wrong way to move, eyes closed, you can dance like nobody’s watching because nobody is! We warm up, shake it loose and dance until we drop with a most beautiful crystal bowl sound bath.
Next event held on December 7 and 21st at the Birch Hall, Steiner Academy, Hereford, Much Dewchurch HR2 2DL
£10 a session 19:30-22:30 pm A healthy and positive option for your Saturday night shenanigans.

Village Beats Ecstatic Awakening Dance
Come and dance to get that body and mind moving! Do you want to find a way to switch of that busy mind of yours? How about thinking a good cardio workout is in order? How about combining the two? Village Beats gives you a chance to drop out of that busy thinking mind and to drop down into your body. We play some amazing music that lets us put anything that might be popping up into our heads into the dance through the use of breath, rhythm and movement. We darken the room, light it with fairy lights and you can dance like nobody’s watching because nobody is. This is an active meditation to some a-m-a-z-i-n-g tunes!
Come take some time to warm up, shake it out, dance it all out, rest a while and make some divine space for yourself.
