We finally had our launches for BODYBALANCE 45 ( our launches are a LOT behind Australia I know!) and I taught the standing strength track out of the half block we presented (the other other was pilates, as it was an express block format for the launches).
Since at the launch there’s lots of new people trying out the classes, I tried really hard to use as much dutch as possible. This is a huge challenge for me with new choreography, and I don’t teach it as well (it just flows better in your own language, and people tell me that balance sounds better in English anyhow), but I think I did ok with some of my new words.
My new favourite word of the moment is “Drai” (I have no idea of the spelling!) which means “turn”. I use it all the time now:
- Turn your toes left
- Turn yourself to the back wall
- Turn your shoulder out
- Turn your knee out
- Turn you hips forward
The different examples are endless………..a very useful word to know in Dutch for teaching balance classes 🙂
Anyway the launch went well, and I was doing the options, which was a good thing since my sacroilliac was still a bit tender and some of the moves were still a little painful for me, such as the full cobra/up dog.
And I really like the track I had to present aswell…….very nice track.
