I get it, you’re scared, unsure and maybe a little intimidated….
But here’s the thing: I hear this all the time and trust me, everyone else felt this same way at first!
It can be very intimidating when you don’t know how to do something, (and feel like everyone else does) and no one wants to look like a fool or feel bad about themselves…heck, that’s the OPPOSITE of why we take class, right?!
Although I can’t speak to how other instructors teach, I want you to know that it’s extremely important to me that all my events and my classes are held in an open, warm and welcoming environment…where you feel safe, where you can relax, be yourself and feel like you “fit in” just fine exactly how you are. NO MATTER WHAT YOUR EXPERIENCE, SHAPE OR SIZE – YOU BELONG HERE.
Plus each and every class or event has BRAND NEW PEOPLE, of various ages and abilities.
And please try to not be too judgmental with yourself as you learn your new skills and find your way, rather, keep in mind after just a few classes, you will be singing along and maybe even bustin’ a move in the front row as that icky anxious, self-conscious feeling starts to go away.
So my advice to you is to just jump right in…yup, simply show up!
Soon enough, after just a few classes, you will start to “get it” and feel more comfortable and confident. Yup, I promise, you will feel like you “belong” and your only regret will be not doing it sooner!
That’s what happens…I see it all the time and I can’t wait to have you join us. And be sure to come introduce yourself: I love making new friends. 🙂
