The first woman accused of witchcraft in Salem was an enslaved Caribbean. This opera tells her story | CBC Arts

I had pleasure to be apart of Obeah Opera for the Luminato Festival in Toronto and this article right here shows the richness of what I got to experience with these beautiful ladies every day. To wake up everyday and do this ... this was magic to my soul❤️
I pray that this work takes off and continues it’s magic!

cbc.ca Nicole Brooks combined slavery, witchcraft and opera to make literal Black girl magic out of this little-known moment in history.

My daughter is such an inspiration to me and to have her look up to me as her role model or her ‘Hero’ as she describes me, it brings me such joy and warms my heart.
I took her to rehearsal with me and she participated in cast warm up so here she is following her mummy leading the warm up. I love what I do and love even more that Zaya wants be apart of everything I do and accomplish! It’s a blessing to have this little one cheering me on😊

World Parkinson's Day is celebrated on April 11 to create awareness about the long-term degenerative disorder. It also marks the birthday of James Parkinson, a physician who described the disease.
My father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and lived a long time with it. I don’t talk about because I hate Parkinson’s (well hate isn’t even the word) and what it did to my heart. It is an unapologetic disease and today I am sharing this post the only honest way that I can at the current moment. Unfortunately there is no cure but there are medications that help slow down the process but truly the side effects in the long run can be discomforting. So for those of you who suffer with the disease, know someone who is suffering or just want to help let’s unite today ❤️ and kick Parkinson’s to the curb!!!

Science confirms: Dancing makes you happy

If you didn’t already know dance of any kind is therapeutic and science CONFIRMS IT:). Take a read!

psychology-spot.com When we dance our brain releases endorphins, neurotransmitters that create a feeling of comfort, relaxation, fun and power, so dancing makes us happy.

Happy International Women’s Day!
Remember you are strong, you are brilliant and without you the world would be a lonely place.

A dancer’s brain develops in a unique way | University of Helsinki

More reason why I CAN NOT live without dance, music or any kind of movement. It is important for our bodies to move ... movement is natural medicine and nourishment for our bodies for multiple reasons. Take a read!

helsinki.fi Music activates our deeper brain areas, but what happens in a dancer’s brain?

Aright feeling great got my run in and I want to ensure you are feeling great too. So start something new today that excites you or maybe takes you out of your comfort zone. Life is to short not to try living a balanced healthy lifestyle that works for YOU NOT ANYONE ELSE!!!
Lesson for the day: #staymotivated

Mixing up the training this week and decided today I run! Anyone who knows me well knows I hate running 👀👀
But with the assistance #nikerunningapp it made it easy to have a coach in my air plus of course my soca track blazing for extra motivation;)

Exercise of the day: Leg & Back extension

Leg extension:
- Lay flat on your belly and place your hands under your forehead
- Draw your belly in and up (feel like your putting on a tight pair of jeans) & relax your head and neck.
- Inhale to prepare
- Exhale to lift your left leg off the ground lengthening the toe towards the back wall
- Inhale to hold & exhale to lower the leg with control.
Repeat on the right side
** Add some pulses to make it more challenging and feel the burn!

Back Extension:
- Inhale to prepare
- Exhale to draw lower belly in and lift the chest off the mat
- Inhale to hold and exhale to gently lower chest to the mat
** To make it more challenging you can add a pulse

I am constantly focusing on strengthening the posterior chain (meaning the group of muscles located on the back of the body). Contracting and lengthening these posterior muscles are super important because it helps develop strength, flexibility, promote stability and balance (proper body alignment aka good posture). Proper posture also reduces stress on your muscles and ligaments, which can reduce your risk of injury.

Hope you enjoy this exercise!

Progressing Ballet Technique

Want to maintain a strong arabesque or for non dancers just a high simple leg lift to the back and maintain stability on the standing leg? Here are some pointers in this article that will be able to strengthen your spine, backs of legs and glutes.

If you can figure out where your weak areas then we can easily strengthen them to make them strong again so don’t despair.

Perfect advice from Deb that fits in so well during each PBT class ✅

So it’s been a few days since I posted. I have been doing this 10 day cleanse plus juggling mom life and creating exciting new business ventures. As a result, I disconnected myself from social media for a few days so I can focus on not eat meals as I went all in this time 3 smoothies a day with healthy snacks in between the day. Day 1-4 is the hardest for me because you still have cravings for food and your hungry for things other than celery sticks lol 😝 but then afterwards my mind is like food??? What is that again 😂.
Thankful today is my last day YEAH FOR DAY 10, but I aim to maintain a healthy and clean diet so I can have a clear mind, be fun of energy and be my best self. Will keep you posted on that journey because living in Barbados with mouth watering Bajan dishes surrounding you... it just isn’t easy at all!! Lol

Tonight was a beauty as I caught the last bit of light before the sun went down and I got in a quick 30 min workout 🏋️‍♂️ with my daughter by my side:) she is such a good sport!
Workout:
115 sit ups (variations of your choice), 46 leg raises & 110 sec plank & 100 squats with kettle bell 😓

I love a foam roller stretch. Foam rollers are an excellent way to take your exercise to another level and creates a stability element. Plus it is a great tool in assisting the release of tight muscles e.g quads, hamstrings and back (these are my tight areas). All you need to do is ROLL ON IT probably the only fun part about it until the ‘good’ pain kicks in!

Abs & legs one of my fav’s. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CORE! 10-15 mins of core work will assist in strengthening not only your entire core and sculpt your stomach but these muscles also provide support for the entire body, reduce back pain and improve posture.
So Get Moving!!

[01/20/19]   Working on arms today (10 pound weights)
My daughter likes to join in on the fun doing her own kiddie workout.
Sometimes I can get a workout in with no distractions but 95% of the time it’s impossible. So I place a mat on the side so my daughter can join in and she loves it plus it allows me to get in at least 15-20 mins of SWEAT!!

Only 10-15 mins minus the distractions 👶:) I make sure to get in some abs with variations, leg work and butt aka squats = death for me but feels good after you stop wobbling like a penguin 😂😂

TODAY

Such an inspirational video and proof as to why ‘to dance’ is so important. It doesn’t matter if you are not a professional dancer or how old you are. #Danceisauniversallanguage

Eileen Kramer is turning 103-years-young today, but that hasn’t stopped her dancing... She’s lived through world wars, danced for Maharajas and now she’s choreographing her own show! What an inspiration.

More information on incredible Eileen and how you can support her show here: https://www.9now.com.au/today/2017/extras/latest/november-17/103-year-old-dancer #9Today

Thank you Jesus for Chefette!! You know how it is when the plane don't feed ya no more 😂

The reason I love to dance, well I could write an essay. But, to have the opportunity to translate a choreographers vision, to be able to tell a story with your body, take the audience on an unforgettable journey is a just such powerful thing. Thank you Jeanguy, your work continues to inspire me🙏 #CarifestaXIII #mylovefordance #haiti
