Istanbul Salsa Festival 2013

Just got back from the Istanbul Salsa Festival 2013 (or more officially known as The Istanbul International Dance Festival) and what an amazing event it truly was. 

I have never been in a event with so many of the world's best salsa dancers. An what an honor it was to share the stage with so many dancers who truly are some of the best salsa dancers in the world like Marco Ferrigno, Natalia Lopez, Anya Katsevman, & Luis Aguilar,  Maykel Fonts, Juan Matos, Johnny Vazquez, Alien Ramirez, Franklin Diaz, Eddie Torres, David Zepeda, Shani Talmor, Rodrique Cortazar, Frankie Martinez, Oliver Pineda, Rafael Barros & Carine Morais, Eli Torres, Magna Gopal, Mouaze Konate, Jorjet Alcocer, Gilson & Natasha, and the list just goes on and on. 

And the highlight of the event was of course our opportunity to share our performance with the amazing audience at the Istanbul Festival. 



Thank you for all of the organizers! Really looking forward to the 2014 Istanbul International Dance Festival already!

Paleo Solution, Tim Ferriss And Robb Wolf, Glutein Free Vs. Wheat

I personally first got an deeper introduction to the idea of many people having a glutein intolerance or sensitivity at one of Dr. John Grays health and wellness retreats couple of years ago.

Although I have experimented with many different diets, I have not ever tried to be glutein free. But last night just sitting in a Bart coming from my salsa lessons I was reading an article in the blog of Tim Ferriss that was written by Robb Wolf, which inspired me to give it a try. (Link coming soon, I am giving this report from my iPhone as I eat my breakfast :))

I do think that many people are glutein intolerant and that wheat can cause a lot of harm particularly to your digestive system. And I am also a big believer that myriad of health problems start when our digestive system becomes compromised and is not working well.

For the past couple of months I have limited my sugar intake to almost nothing. Basically, the only sugar I have ingested has been via some Builders Cliff Bars (They taste really good). But I have also stopped eating the bars as well as they contain a lots of indigestible soy protein. My point is that I have been fairly healthy and my. Digestive system has been working well, so I am interested to see whether limiting all breads and grains in my diet is going to take my health to an even higher level. I will be journaling some of my experiences here. And here is my first breakfast!

Are you able to find the Salsa Rhythm??

I thought I would give you a little experiment. Are you able to
find the salsa rhythm on this song? Just count to 1,2,3,5,6,7 and
you will realize that you can actually dance salsa to many different
types of songs, not just your typical salsa music! So make your
body rock to:
