OULA has had a profound effect on my life – not least being able to work with my two closest friends Kali and Staci. They push me everyday to be better than the day before. Some days I hate them for that and some days I love them for that 🙂  I am so grateful for their big hearts and big brains!! I really would not be the person I am without them in my life.
But bigger than the 3 of us is this incredible OULA community. I have to first give a shout out to the instructors. Those lovely, hard working folks who lay it all out on the dance floor a few times a week.
I have the honor of being part of the review team that gets to watch their recert videos. I’ve been doing it for a few years now. And folks, I am continually blown away by the power, passion and dedication these instructors display. They share so much of themselves in such vulnerable ways. Whether to a room of 2 or a room of 40 – they give it their all. Thank you Instructors – for helping us all feel a little bit deeper and a little bit more – For pushing us past our comfort zones and encouraging us to be our best selves.
And thank you participants for opening your hearts and your minds and your bodies to a fitness class that is so much MORE than a fitness class. The joy on your faces, the sweat on your limbs – you who are willing to go to those places physically and emotionally- you are what makes OULA great!
We may have conflict. We may have differences. But in the end we all come together for a common good – to make this world a better place. OULA is grateful for all of you. You are the heart and the soul of this Movement. ❤️
