Zumba, Zumba & More Zumba

My last week in Utah, was spent doing A LOT of Zumba. I went to my Zumba class on Tuesday thinking that that would be my last class. I said my good byes and took some photos. Just as I was getting ready to leave, my instructor (Shelly) said, "You're going to be here Thursday, right?" I told her I would try but I couldn't make any promises since we were moving and still had a lot of packing to do. She asked what my favorite Zumba song was and said she would play it for me on Thursday. In case your wondering my favorite song is Sadi Gali by Lehmber Hussainpuri-- it's pretty awesome!
This is photo was taken after our hour long workout, someone didn't think to take a photo before class.
Wednesday night was my last night attending a Young Women's activity with my girls and you're never going to guess what our activity was....If you guessed Zumba, you're right. We had a sister in our ward and her son (who is a certified Zumba instructor) come and teach the girls Zumba. Neither of them had actually taught a class before, so it was a little interesting. They asked me to teach some basic Salsa moves to the girls since they had never had to teach those to anyone before (my ballroom dance class in high school paid off).
My girls and fellow leaders!

It was sad saying bye to my girls, I may have cried just a little. I don't usually get very emotional but I have a hard time saying good bye. I miss each of you very much. You all have a piece of my heart. Thank you so much for letting me learn and grow with you!

As luck would have it, I was able to sneak out on Thursday night to go to my last (for reals this time) Zumba class. Most of the other Young Women leaders/friends in the ward came to Zumba too, it was a welcomed surprise! When my favorite song came on Shelly announced that it was my last class and asked me to come forward to help lead Sadi Gali. Thanks for letting me help lead Shelly, it was fun and I really enjoyed myself!

Since we moved, I have been looking for a new Zumba class to attend but I haven't found one yet that is as fun and intense as Shelly's. Maybe I need to get certified to teach...hmm...If I ever end up back in Utah, you know where to find me.

**Totally just started crying because I miss my Zumba class and my Young Women***
