At times, others help us put life in perspective.  Know your worth and create your life.

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. 

We ask ourselves - who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

BAJAN FUSION presents Pon de FLO...Pon Performance Workshop

Pon de FLO...Pon Performance Workshop with Heather Fay and Bajan Diet Designs

BAJAN FUSION: Pon de FLO will be Pon de ROCK

The 2012 Bajan Fusion will be a special experience featuring New York City based Heather Fay, Founder and CEO of Pon De FLO® from June 25th to June 30 th in Barbados.
Heather is a current Town Sports International (TSI) New York Sports Clubs Instructor and Trainer, as well as an Independent Fitness Instructor and Professional Choreographer.
‘Pon de FLO’ is a Caribbean/ Reggae based dance fitness class, which incorporates high energy, easy to follow choreography and intense body strengthening moves.
The essence of this class is to let the energy of the music and choreography release all self inflicted boundaries we create for ourselves and allow us to just ‘FLO’ with the music. What better way to feel energy than through the hottest Caribbean and Reggae music around?! Dance is both body empowerment as well as a form of freedom and Pon de FLO brings you just that!
Here are benefits of Pon de FLO:
·         *For all ages, shapes, sizes and all levels of dance;
·         *Incorporates easy to follow choreography;
·         *Core movements and intense calisthenics which define and tone muscle, builds core strength, increases  flexibility and burns fat;
·         *Increases metabolic rate, builds endurance and stamina;
·         * An experience where a participant can not only improve their well being, but also feel an increase in energy and let their body flow
with the music without correction or judgment.
Heather is currently studying to become a nutritionist, as she believes nutrition and exercise go hand and hand to the success of a healthy weight and wellness. Being Vegan and a full time Instructor, Heather is advertising the importance of healthy eating habits alongside her Pon de FLO classes to enhance energy, health and over all well-being.
 Live to Dance… Dance to be Free…

Soca & Reggae Rhythms

The 2012 Bajan Fusion will be a special experience featuring Heather Fay, Founder and CEO of Pon De FLO. Heather is a current TSI New York Sports Clubs (NYSC) Instructor in New York City . 
Instructing Zumba and Hip-Hop classes for seven years in NYC, Heather has earned herself much creditability in the dance and fitness industry and a reputation as a Zumba Master Instructor. As a huge fitness advocate, Heather has always incorporated strength, core and plyometric exercises into her dance choreography to enhance the workout.
In 2011, Heather created ‘Pon de FLO®’; a Caribbean/ Reggae dance based fitness class which incorporates high intensity calisthenics and core movements with the hottest Caribbean and Reggae music out today. Although based in NYC, Pon de FLO® is quickly gaining popularity and expanding internationally.

Medicine (NASM), Mad Dogg Spin® and YogaFit®. In 2006 Heather graduated with a Degree in Visual/ Graphic Arts from Holyoke College.
“I believe dance is both body empowerment as well as a form of freedom. When you dance, dance uninhibitedly. Lose yourself in the music and rhythms, freeing yourself from all the self-inflicted boundaries and consciousness we stress upon ourselves living in today’s society. When you dance, dance like no one is watching. Allowing yourself true freedom to move, will not only have you feel uplifted, but you will also feel your body strengthening and becoming more flexible.”
Heather Fay
