3 Easy Ways To Enjoy Spanish/Latin American Culture During Lockdown

So, you’re at home (if you’re not a key worker), and you might be wondering how you can get involved with Spanish and Latin American culture during this lockdown. 

Well, you’re not alone!

While this is certainly a strange and uncertain time for many of us, it’s important to remember to have fun and do things that make you happy. 

And enjoying the vibrant culture of Spain and Latin America at home will definitely bring some colour to your household.

Flamenco Fitness online courses

Flamenco, for fitness? You heard us right.

Many of us are looking to keep active and stay fit as much as we can during the lockdown. Luckily for us, home workouts are easily attainable, fun to do and often don’t require anything other than our own bodies and a clear space to do.

And of course, there are countless types of home-based exercise that you can do, from yoga in your living room, to exercises from the likes of Joe Wicks which are taking the world by storm.

So we thought we’d add a little bit of Spanish and Latin American flair to the home workout! 

Our Flamenco Fitness courses are starting up and whether you’re a beginner to Flamenco, an expert at this gorgeous art form, or you love dancing but don’t normally dance Flamenco, these classes are perfect for you. 

You don’t have to resign yourself to a gruelling workout which involves lots of weights, countless situps or a lot of stretching afterwards to avoid aching muscles. 

Staying active should be enjoyable, something that gets you going back for the buzz of doing something that makes you feel so good.

Our highly interactive sessions are perfect if you want to:

  • Work on body posture
  • Tone your muscles
  • Develop rhythm and coordination
  • Discover flamenco music
  • Develop concentration
  • Energise and feel happy

So why not give it a try? 

Join us in our online Flamenco classes for fitness, and stay healthy the fun way!

Private Spanish Tuition

Many of us are finding ourselves with extra time on our hands at the moment, and whether you’re enjoying that or not, it’s important to use this time to do the things that make you feel positive, fulfilled and happy in some way – even if that involves bingeing your favourite TV shows.

But if you’re after a new hobby, or an activity to take your mind off the current uncertainty – why not set yourself a challenge and learn a new language? Or brush up your language skills?

We’ve launched private Spanish tuition to replace our usual Spanish courses in light of the current situation. All our Spanish lessons are now online, delivered virtually by our amazing professional Spanish teachers.

And because we’re lucky to have such a range of highly-qualified teachers, our online Spanish courses can cater for all levels. So whether you’re interested in our Spanish for beginners, pre-intermediate and intermediate Spanish levels or our advanced conversation classes, there’s something perfect for you.

We can organise bespoke Spanish lessons based on your experience, all of which comes in tailored 1-1 teaching so you feel valued and catered for during your time with us. 

Why not set yourself a positive challenge, and learn Spanish in just 5 weeks? 

Or, get yourself to the point where you can order from a Spanish restaurant confidently…in Spain.

You can even take a look at this list of amazing traditional Latin American recipes from lots of different countries, like Peru, Argentina, Mexico and more!

While travel around the world is restricted, there’s no excuse for not bringing the world to your kitchen…

So, while many of us might be experiencing a change in routine, or are perhaps a little stressed about the current situation, it’s important to keep perspective on your own personal situation and make sure to not only be compassionate to yourself but aware of others. 

If you’ve got the space and time to enjoy a little Spanish and Latin American colour during this difficult time, remember to be thankful! 

The best thing we can all do is stay home, be mindful of our situations and make the best of it that we can. And while you’re at it, there’s no better time to try something new, take up a language or keep fit the fun way with our Flamenco classes, and enrich this challenging time with some fun.
