Dancing was my rehabilitation

Posted on 3 Comments

You’ve probably already seen the video of how Authentic Singing became the golden key to my healing process. Since my recovery from my brain tumour began, I have realized how vital dance and movement has been to my physical rehabilitation. In December 2018, due to brain cancer and the subsequent surgery, I had lost all movement in my right arm and right leg. I had little to no mobility and very little energy.

My desire to travel and share Authentic Singing with the world meant that I was unable to go to a rehabilitation centre, but I was determined to regain my full mobility! So I chose to dance my  way through my travelling rehabilitation. It was fun and effortless because authentic dancing is all about moving with the energy of the moment. However I was feeling physically and emotionally, I simply listened to my body and moved in a way that it was capable of at that particular time. Not forcing, not comparing myself to others, just moving to feel better.

I tapped into my playful spirit and my dancing gifted me not only my physical health but a childlike freedom! Gradually, I regained my flexibility and mobility. Although I still see progress every day, I’m happy to say that I am now in such  good shape compared to 2 years ago, and I have dance to thank for that.

We have always danced to our tracks within the Year Course Authentic Singing, but now we are delighted that we have our Authentic Dance course, The Magical Movement Journey, to dance with for the rest of our lives!

We truly cannot wait to share our Authentic Dance course with you! We know from first-hand experience how life enhancing it is. 

Much love,

Upala
