This Wednesday for Mindful Hour Presented by LaCroix Sparkling Water, we were joined again by Kristin DeCesare (@confidance_by_kristin), a professional dancer, instructor, choreographer, and certified breathwork instructor. Kristin started her career as a school teacher but realized that her true passion was for dance. Since starting her professional dance career, Kristin has worked in New York City performing on Saturday Night Live and the New York Knicks dance team. In 2011, Kristin auditioned to be a dancer with Pitbull and ended up going on tour with him for 3 years.
After touring, Kristin switched over to the business side of Pitbull’s team and served as his creative director. She then decided to retire from touring and start her own company called Confidence by Kristin, where she and a team of instructors teach private and semi-private dance lessons for kids all over the country.
Today, aside from teaching dance, Kristin is a consultant for NBA and MLB dance teams. She has worked with the Chicago Bulls basketball team and the Miami Marlins baseball team. In addition to her work in the dance industry, she is also a trained breathwork facilitator and has found that she has a strong passion for breathwork.
For Kristin’s segment on DGFG Live, this week did some breathwork and sound bowl meditation. Sound Bowls are used for deep relaxation and soothing the nervous system. She guided us through a beginner’s breathwork exercise where she explained the different types of inhaling and exhaling and showed us how to take part in some basic breathing exercises. Kristin also taught us about the 7 chakras, their colors, and what they represent. She believes that breathwork is an important tool that kids and adults alike should be aware of so that everyone can help regulate their emotions and the way we react to things.
