  • My heart felt like it was beating out of my chest.

Sweaty palms. 
I was so nervous to be interviewed on Saturday on @globalbc about being the BC Regional owner of @pl3yeducation.bc .

I can talk about the @dancepl3y program that we teach in schools in BC all day everyday and yet staring at a camera, speaking to someone in my ear asking me questions made me incredibly nervous. 
I’m glad it happened fast. Last week we decided we would love to teach more kids in 2019/2020 and it would be a great idea to have some media exposure. 
We wrote a press release and sent it to an amazing friend @momma_vee and 3 hours later she called me with a spot on Global TV BC a day later.

I love how quickly things can happen when they are in alignment and when you are ready. 
I am so happy I faced my fears and did this interview. 
They were so interested in the impact that we have made with this physical literacy and positive mental health based program and we had a great chat. 
They were also interested in the work that we do with @lpkenya . I love talking about that community that is full of passion, resiliency and they love to dance! 
Our team is ready. 
It is time for us to make an even bigger impact in schools and on kids lives.

I’m so proud of the work our PL3Y Education BC team of 11 instructors has done this year alone we taught over 22,250 and over three years over 40,000 kids. 
It’s wild to think that it was just me in this Region teaching the programs only years ago and now we have a team of passionate instructors who feel on purpose and passionate about what they do each day. 
This team is so amazing, they connect with the kids and are always learning and growing. Their impact is huge!! We are just getting started!

Send us good vibes as it’s time for us to really be seen.

  • 2018 was a big year for my business (also personally but that’s another story). @dancingwithlifebc expanded into two new @dancepl3y regions to reach any school in ALL of BC, brought on 8 new instructors (for a team of 13), and impacted over 20,000 kids in over 100 schools. 
For me personally however, I did the thing that many entrepreneurs do. I placed a lot of pressure on myself to be working all of the time, to grow at a certain rate, to please my instructors and clients and neglected my creativity and play, and I got tired. Like really tired and overwhelmed with my business and our fast growth. (Can anyone relate?) I am excited to say that with some amazing coaching, and support I have come to realize where I may have worked too hard and neglected my self care and how I can do better and build a business that feels good for me and gives me the play, freedom, nourishment, balance and creativity that I desire while making an amazing impact on thousands of kids (and educators) lives!

2019 has already started off with me feeling more rested, more creative, more balance and play. 
My intention this year is to fall in love with my business and life again so that I can show up even more and we can make a bigger impact. 
It’s my intention to be on more stages (doors are already opening for that), more podcasts, and presenting at more conferences and to step into leadership like never before. 
I believe that the @dancepl3y School program that @dancingwithlifebc Offers is impacting kids mental and physical health in a way that is unparalleled, and we are helping to transform the school system into a more positive, growth mindset focused environment that keeps students active and builds physical literacy.

Imagine an education system where people are vibrant, positive, open hearted, rejuvenated and playful! 
Who else can see this?

  • Enjoy-a-Ball #skills  #proprioception - sounds like a tongue twister, but is in fact one of your senses. If we had to define the Proprioceptive System without using medical terms, we would describe it as our body’s ability to sense where we are in relation to our surroundings. Without our proprioceptive system, we are unable to know where different parts of our body are without looking. I bet right now, you could close your eyes and still touch your finger to the tip of your nose? That is because of your proprioceptive system. This system is responsible for helping us move through space and move our bodies effectively. 
We love this video from Brain Highways on Proprioception. It provides a clear visual for what is happening to the body when proprioception is not regulated or is out of sync.

In November, I had the honour of collaborating with @carlykozy to speak at @striveswo, @swpublichealth , and @mlhealthunit event Fueling the Spark to Play regarding what physical literacy looks like in practice. We discussed our company's policy surrounding the incorporation of physical activity and outdoor play into programs and the simple ways we achieve success in these areas.
Examples:
- Partnering with co-educators for ideas, new perspective
-Having extra clothing and gear for all weather so children are always able to participate
-Being prepared for physical and outdoor play yourself
-Role modelling excitement about outdoor and physical play
-Adding physical activity to transition through songs and play -Follow the childrens' lead: if they are enjoying their physical or outdoor play- extend it. Routines in childcare are meant to be flexible. Prioritize child engagement when possible.
-Use outside resources for support and ideas

We also had the pleasure of hearing about the results of the childcare Physical Activity(PLAY) study that Western has been conducting in the London area from Trish Tucker. This study establishes the impact that childcare centres have on physical activity for children. In short, while children are active, once they reach school age we see more and more children fall short on recommended levels of activity. This lack of activity can lead to mental health issues, childhood obesity, diabetes and more.

Lynn Campanella from @playocracy joined to demonstrate games and activities that can enhance physical activity in programs, which leads to overall global literacy (literacy in all areas). #fuelingthesparktoplay #physicalliteracy #outdoorplay #ece #PLAY #playocracy #getactive #publicspeaking @early.learning.centre #CPL #professionallearning #reflectivepeactice
