Temporarily adapting my choreography while going through treatment at the myo Clinic

Adapting choreography doesn’t lose the enthusiasm, only the level of output!

Some of you are aware that I have started treatment at the myo Pain Clinic to help me deal with ongoing issues. I must first attest to the fact that this has been life changing for me and I don’t want to take any risk in not getting the most out of this, so I absolutely must do everything in my ability to follow doctor’s orders and recommendations.

The myo Clinic uses Trigger Point Injection and it releases your muscles on a mass scale.  My first treatment was about 200 pokes with .9% saline and left me with the muscles of a 5 year old and feeling weak. Pushing them too much makes me light headed and hinders my healing.  I must adjust and took time off this week to give me time this first week to recognize how I felt.

Over the next 3 weeks I am going to treatments and will be adapting choreography in that I am moving smaller, stepping and not moving as much as I typically do.  I will be directing you more than I would be dancing.  It’s something you will find different and a new challenge for me too.  A way of teaching called life guarding where I don’t always dance directly up front.  You are rockstars, you got this.  You know how to lead the new students in class 🙂

Now just because I am lowering my output and impact, that does not mean that you should!  Keep up your energy, keep adding your flavour.  Make it your own!  That is what Zumba is all about, making it your style.

See you on the dance floor with my super attitude and modified choreo!
