Riding to work and using her bike as her main mode of transport, not just a form of exercise, is something Taren has grown to love. Along the way, Taren has also enjoyed the benefits this simple little change to her routine has provided - fun, fitness, happiness (no more getting caught in traffic congestion), money savings, convenience and not to mention getting to enjoy the fresh air.

In the words of Albert Einstein "Life is like riding a bicycle to keep your balance you must keep moving."

BollySoul Dance! Moving your body can be in any form and that is the best thing about finding your active and being an everyday adventurer.

I love Saniya zest for all things dance and how teaching has allowed her to grow, learn new things, and step outside her comfort zone. In Saniya's words "dance is about making people smile and bringing them together in movement."

This is a motivating read about putting yourself out there, asking for help and how moving your body and having the courage to follow your dreams can lead to finding your happy place.

Finding motivation wasn't easy for Alyssa, but she kept persisting until she found what was right for her. Everyone's active is different and it is all about finding your bliss and what is the right fit for you.
