How we burn calories dancing?

by Sunday, January 21, 2018

Many dance forms can help you lose weight, but what really helps is imagining yourself as you would like to be. Dancing not only raises the heart rate through movement, it also tones and tightens the major muscle groups of the body. Dancing can burn as many calories as walking, swimming or riding a bicycle. A half-hour session of sustained dancing can burn a lot of calories. The more effort we put into our movements, the more we burn.

No Excuse for Dancers

by Wednesday, January 17, 2018

We all have 24 hours in the day... and we all have financial constraints and a budget to follow. The reason time and money is an easy excuse to avoid workouts is because it doesn’t require an explanation or much thinking to tell someone–including yourself. It flows off the lips easily and stops further conversation almost immediately. But when we use excuses, what we are really saying is that not accomplishing our goals is not important enough for us to find a way to make it happen.  If you REALLY wanted to lose weight, if it was THAT important for you, there would not be an excuse in the world to prevent it from happening. 

Retreats to lose weight?

by Sunday, January 7, 2018

I do not believe in long term diets, but I strongly believe that a connection with your body will help you to re-organize your habits. There are ways to control your cravings 'Diana's new vegan workshop was so thorough and well researched. Working from a personalised bodymap and after detailed discussion she designed and scheduled an exercise routine and vegan recipes for me to follow at home, based around my multiple food allergies. Highly recommended!' Nicole 2016; '

Detox with Artemisia Program: a Seasonal Cleanse

by Saturday, January 6, 2018

The workshop will explore techniques to remove common irritants, while nourishing ourselves with vegan and whole foods from Artemisia recipes repertoire. Together, we will clean emotional and physical blocks to reveal a more focussed and vibrant version of ourselves. Maybe you’ve been pretty consistent about eating fruits and veggies, making it to class at least once a week, and going to sleep at a reasonable hour. But without exception, everyone makes exceptions (say, that late-night crunch to hit a work deadline or a beer-and-pizza party with friends). The holiday period impacts the health habits of even the most disciplined among us. We will learn how to deal with the desire to consume sugar and unhealthy food and how to embrace habits that bring our challenges to another level. In other words how we strip away layers of false beliefs.

TheDanceClass: research genuine movements

by Friday, December 8, 2017

Dance can generate a very democratic environment - everyone can come, try and enjoy! What is dance about? Just embodied confidence I guess...we are exposed, barefoot, totally exposed and nowhere to hide. As the most of you know, I previously worked as an art director, helping brands to find their way and communicate with the world.  I have realised  that most of the principles I followed in the past, remain just as relevant in teaching dance! My focus is finding the right communication between our body and the rest of the world. We commit to be nice, rather than be real. We need to commit to us: you commit to you!  We are the one we were waiting for, no else. What does this mean? 

Fitness, Movement Experience with Boldbodies

by Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Shape your Body? Weight Loss? Empower your mind and your coordination skills? Detox? Here the group classes you should consider.  By moving the body and engage the mind, participants feel regenerated of endorphins that become a real cleansing of energy, sealed  breath work and movement practice. This experience is a return and reconnection to yourself, your time to feel who you really are.  The mind gets clear as soon the body becomes a precise movement machine.  My workouts are for any woman who feels disconnected, different, in need of change or for all who need to reset from a stressful life. I challenge you to experience pain and discomfort in order to re-organize every inch of your body.

How to detox our body from Pesticides

by Wednesday, August 16, 2017

We must not be afraid of chemicals altogether, but we ought to be aware of the amount we are consuming and the influences they are having on our health. The American Journal Reuters reported in 2015 to have found the presence of the herbicide glyphosate in the majority of the honey samples that they tested, over a third of their samples of soy sauce and three out of eighteen breast milk samples. After Scientists had claimed that pesticides which bio-accumulate (the gradual build up over time of a chemical in a living organism) to any significant degree had been removed from use or were at least highly restricted, these results forced them to retract their statements.

The Bond between Dance and Fashion

by Monday, July 3, 2017

It is widely known that fashion finds its inspiration in every nook and cranny of art, from architecture to film and theatre. Even though each functions as its own cultural space, the worlds of ballet and fashion are often interwoven. This fusion takes place not only through the  works of famous designers who, more than often, use modern and classical dances as an inspiration for their collections, but as well through numerous others spheres of fashion, and art in general.  When it comes to fashion, the motif of ballet can be repeatedly found in different celebrity designers’ collections, from Coco Chanel to Yves Saint Laurent to Giorgio Armani. This breathtaking synthesis has produced the fashion trend that in real has never faded away - transparent tulle, pastel colors and layering, daring but at the same time secure combination.
