Welcome to the world of VivAsia. Come visit here to learn about what we are up to, where we are going in the world to spread our VivAsia passion. These world wide tours are not only for promoting our dance programs, they are not only for training new instructors, they are also for us to absorb and immerse in the cultures. This way we can truly incorporate more colorful cultural elements into the program and share them with you.
To begin our journey we want to share with you a letter we received from one of the VivAsians, Ms. Anita Amerish.
I stumbled upon the Vivasia Exercise class at my gym accidentally and immediately fell in love with the class. It was very different from the normal Zumba and other dance classes that I regularly attend.
It is a fusion aerobic dance class. The dance moves are based on music from India, China, Korea, Tibet and other Asian countries.
The class is for all fitness levels and you can decide how hard you want to work or just enjoy the dancing. The thing that I really enjoy about the class is I feel like it is total mind, body and spirit work out and the experience is totally unique to each individual as you get lost in the sounds of the different countries.
Different musical sounds and languages will stimulate your mind and the props, which include scarves; ribbons and dandias help your coordination and strengthen your shoulders and arms. The upbeat music will lift your spirits and put you in the happiness zone.
One song will put you in Bollywood while the next song will have you practicing Tai Chi moves in China! You feel like you are dancing on the beach in different exotic countries somewhere far away and you can be who ever you want to be in that moment! Dance like no-one is watching, because no one is – everyone is lost in their own little world and the energy is infectious J.
The instructor who has invented this style is amazing. She provides clear, concise cues so the dance moves are easy to follow. She has been a trainer and fitness instructor for ten plus years and her choreography is built to target all the muscle groups and provide a total body workout in a very fun environment.
The other thing that I really enjoy about this class is that it helps you get in touch with your inner feminine nature with combination of graceful moves and some dramatic gestures that will definitely put a smile on your face. What is interesting about this part is that it is subtle but it works on each individual person’s self esteem and confidence.
I have witnessed so many women who are stiff and awkward when they first start coming to this class but within weeks you can see them loosening up and you can see the enjoyment on their faces as they let their inner dance goddess lose, and as they attend the class regularly each week they seem to walk into the class with a little more self confidence.
If you love to dance and love to experience the multicultural dance moves and music, and at the same time get a total mind, body and spirit workout, you will love Vivasia.. If you would like to know more please go to Vivasiafitness.com
