I have been teaching Nia in the San Francisco Bay Area for two and a half years. So far every Holiday that falls on one of my regularl class days, I have taught. I keep seeing postings on Facebook, Twitter, and other places on the internet about how classes are suspended or cancelled over the Holiday weekend. The classes will resume normal schedule on Tuesday. I understand this because some of the places where the classes are taught are closed over the three-day weekend. Also, a lot of people do go away during Holidays, but a lot of people stay home too. I find that because I have morning classes, my holiday classes are bigger. People that are normally at work get to come to a morning exercise class. I love it.
I also understand that holidays are family time so it is nice to be with the family. Especially since most of the time people are having to get up and rush off on their separate ways. I am fortunate that my Monday and Wednesday classes in San Jose are at 9:00 am. Often times people can come take the class and be back with the family before the family is even up and ready to go about the day. AWESOME!
It seems as if the actual independence day was July 2, 1776, when the actual legal separation from Great Britain occurred. The document clarifying and explaining what the meant was finalized on July 4th so it seems that was adopted as Independence Day. In 1938, Congress changed Independence Day to a paid federal holiday. This is all according to Wiki.
I feel it is nice to take a moment to remember why we have a day off. Usually we are so excited by the fact we have an extra day to play we might forget why. I know I do. It really is my blog that helps me stop and remember. On Holidays I often look up them up to see if I should or could post about them. Today I decided to post a bit about it and about the fact that Help You Well / me has not taken a Holiday yet. I post the information on my site too, so that my students know I will be there and people looking for a class will know. Some people like to try a new class when they have the day off.
I am fortunate to rent the studio where I teach on Monday so I am not subject to a “company” being open or closed. So I am there. You can find me at the studio in San Jose. Even though that is the one day when my hubby might be home and I have to get up and leave him, I am motivated by my students that show up that normally can’t attend on regular work days. Come join me.
At the time of this post there is a Free Class pass on my site. Print it out. Use it. Come dance with us. Come celebrate freedom, barbeques, fireworks, picnics, and grilling. Yeah, dancing can be like that a celebration of it all. Come see.
Happy Fourth of July regardless of where you live! :-)
