Swinging from the Chandelier

I used to dance. I did classical Indian dancing (something called Bharatanatyam) for almost 10 years, from the age of 6. Since then however, I hadn’t really danced much…maybe a special one now and then. 

More recently, I’ve tried to incorporate dancing again into my exercise regime. A couple of years ago, I came across the fitness trainer, motivator, choreographer and businessman Shaun T. I even bought a couple of his home fitness programmes- FOCUS T25 and CIZE. They, amongst other home fitness programmes worked wonders…I lost 7kg with T25!

I use CIZE more for fun really, to practice some dance moves and get in touch with my dancing roots again. The last routine in the DVD series is to the song ‘Chandelier’ by Sia. It probably is my favourite routine, because I feel so free when I dance to it. I saw this youtube video below of Shaun T dancing to it, and it blew my mind…

I thought just for fun, I’ll take a recording of me dancing to the very same song. I’m know I’m obviously not the best dancer, but for me it was about letting loose, and being free.

Song of the Month

I came up with an idea of how to better stick to my posts, even when I’m busy. I decided that once a month, I will post a song which has caught my ears most and which I’d like to relate to. This is a song which I will post on the ‘fifth’ of the month. No real reason why the 5th to be honest, just a number I think I’ll remember best!

This is a song by Jose Gonzalez. Whenever I listen to this song, I am reminded that life is too short, and we should always remember to be free and learn to let go…

I hope you enjoy my song of the month 🙂
