Dear Gaby 2-25-14 The Healing Power of Dance


Gabriela Young – Coach and Franchisee

Tip from Gaby

Hello everyone this week I thought I would share this article I read.

When the vibrations of our physical and spiritual bodies are out of harmony it can cause disease.

Everything in the universe is in a constant state of vibration, including our bodies. Sound is vibration that can be translated by the delicate structures of our inner ear, but it moves more than just those tiny receptors. It is part of the spectrum of energy vibrations that affect us on the mental, physical, and spiritual levels. Long ago shamans recognized the power of sound when they first used chants and drumming to heal people.

In ancient Egypt, Greece, and India, the use of sound and music for healing was a highly developed sacred science.

In Tibet, priests have long used bells and bowls over and around the body to tune and clear the energy centers. Chimes and tuning forks are other tools that have been used to heal not only the body but the energy in a room as well.

When the vibrations of our physical and spiritual bodies are out of harmony it can cause disease. Sound healing gently massages the molecules back into the right places, clearing blockages and restoring harmony.

Wow, this really had me thinking about music and dancing. No wonder our students always feel better after a dance lesson. I know that after moving to music that has a drum beat as in Salsa or Cha Cha, Rhumba and Samba I am always more alert, happy and feel satisfied. Even the beautiful sound of a Waltz or Fox Trot seems to make my heart sing!

So on your next dance lesson, let’s put on your favorite song and let the body healing begin. Not only will you enjoy the benefit of healing your soul but you will keep your body healthy, all while you are learning how to dance!

Win Win don’t you think?

To Dance is to Live,
Gabriela Young
