In Cuba there is an accentuated sexy and sensual walk they call – llamar la atencion – calling for attention. This kind of a walk is made of;
Elegancia ~ elegance
Cadencia ~ cadence
Sabrosura ~ sensuality
Picardia ~ naughtiness.
These are five important elements that form a classic attraction that’s not cheap.
‘Soy yo‘ – this is me. It’s this kind of a look that releases healthy pride full of confidence;
Here I am present in all of my glory, but with inviting warmth, and no arrogance.
The Way We Move, Is The Way We Live Life
Our body language communicates a lot louder than we are really aware of. When we let our thoughts express through our body language, we form a new reality of communication and dialogue, for better and for worseץ This is true in our personal and professional lives. It’s important to be aware of the power that’s in our hands.
The body is a mirror into our soul, at any given moment it reveals what we feel. When we are stressed the body becomes stiff. When we are in love it softens. The chest always holds a lot of emotional stuff. Delicate hand gestures can tell us a lot about the person’s ability to experience and show vulnerability. Every part and every movement tells us something about what is happening within us and in relation to our environment. Our body’s reaction to another tells us a lot about our mutual relationship and allows us to understand what we feel. It allows us to create greater awareness and a deeper connection.
It seems that such looks that make a woman feel like she is a princess, have almost disappeared from today’s judgmental world. As well as vulnerable and pleasant looks from women. Advertising pushes us to focus on the vain and to feel as if our bodies are not attractive enough the way they are. We are too busy with what is missing and imperfect rather than focusing on making the other feel uniquely gorgeous. And we do not cease to communicate it. We have made the world a much more aggressive place, a world in which we do not feel safe enough to open up and be vulnerable. We have lost touch with some very important things, things that in fact affect immediately our inner happiness. Happiness is actually a lot simpler than it seems to us.
To go back 60 years is impossible and unnecessary. The trick is to bring back the elements that we’ve lost that are crucial to our daily happiness. The very elements that without them something is missing, but when they are there life is richer. And it’s possible! Cuba teaches, when there is no material at all, what is left is internal – self-love, belonging to the community, connection to the family and solidarity.
