Beats For Breakfast, October 2016

Beats for Breakfast event is held once a month. It’s where people do yoga, dance, and eat mindfully all day at the Red Room. The most recent one was held on Sunday, October 30. It was a lively morning and afternoon of music, color, dancing, and companionship.

While I wasn’t there for the yoga session, me and my sidekick (also known as my son, Preston), arrived in time to join Rose Goossen’s dance workshop. Well, I joined in. My son was more interested in lounging in the newly-created Reading Nook and watching. But having him absorb the atmosphere of loving your body and yourself, open dance, and open hearts was enough.

Rose Goossen believes that dance has three hypotheses: it’s a physical activity; it’s a spiritual activity, and it’s a social activity. I would say all three were proven as we all felt our bodies uplifted and in harmony with movement and music. As the beats kicked in, provided by DJ Leo, the room just erupted with movement. We let our bodies do the talking as we danced and cavorted on the dance floor.

I left feeling energized and better about myself. It was also great to reconnect with people. As we left, Preston received a green POWER bracelet from the lovely Tiffany Lin and Remindme Values. I love seeing that Preston is claiming his power. At a young age, he doesn’t quite know what it is yet. But he knows it’s there. And I think by coming to Beats for Breakfast, we all got a huge taste of the power within all of us.

Granola House, one of our partners, was also on hand with tasty and healthy treats. Christine, the founder, is passionate about reaching the people who really pay attention to what they consume.
