Set Yourself Free with Fluidity

By Christina Johnson

This workshop is comprised of exercises and musical movements to use for rejuvenating and invigorating the body and mind. Unlike many forms of exercise that exacerbate joint pain, tire the back, and are repetitive and tedious, Argentine tango is always exciting and creative. We can begin tango as a therapeutic exercise and continue to enjoy it as a dance with more refinement and elegance over the years.

“Set Yourself Free with Fluidity”
Fridays, June 3 and June 10, 10–11am
And “Trading Places,” a special class for women who want to learn tango lead
Casa Bonita Hotel, Cardo 10, upstairs in the yoga room
One block from the Organic Saturday market, and right next to the large parking lot.
Teachers: Christina Johnson and Ezequiel A. Peinado, accomplished professional tango instructors.

Few dances involve a heart-to-heart embrace. Human beings need an equivalent of eight hugs a day to enhance the immune system and remain in a satisfactory mental state. Because of the close embrace of tango, a one-hour class would be the equivalent of at least twenty hugs. The biological system has an opportunity to leap into super healing mode through tango!

A study done by the Society of Neuroscience in Washington showed that dancing tango boosts brainpower and can offset negative symptoms of getting older. Seniors aged 68 to 91 demonstrated improved balance, self-esteem, multitasking ability, and motor coordination. Seniors who tangoed were compared with others who walked for exercise, and the tangueros showed more improvement.

With our tango therapy class, we present exercises for people who may be compromised through surgery, accident, or diseases affecting motor skills, the brain, and muscle memory. If you are able to walk, then you can enjoy the therapeutic value of these unique classes. No matter if you are a kinesthetic, visual, auditory, or intuitive learner. All are included in the study of tango. Tango takes listening skills and stretches your brain to coordinate rhythm and distinguish it from melody. You will start listening and moving music to the heart, releasing endorphins and soothing the body.

No partner needed! 150 pesos for each class or 300 pesos for both. Wear shoes with smooth soles. Sneaker soles and open-back shoes not recommended. Wear comfy workout clothes. For information and registration, email or call Christina at 154 9085.
