The Opacize craze has come to Okinawa

I recently had the pleasure of attending my first Opacize class here in Okinawa, Japan! What is Opacize you ask? Opacize is a new, Greek way to work out and stay fit, healthy and happy! It was so much fun and very easy to follow. I had such a great time that I almost forgot that I was working out (the sweat proved otherwise!). Dances varied from traditional Syrtaki (Zorbas), to Kalamatiano and belly dancing along with modern music dancing. Opacize was created in Australia exactly 3 years ago and its birthday was celebrated here in Okinawa, Japan recently.

The Opacize instructor Erasmia Iliaki Smith is a Greek national born on the island of Crete. She is a military spouse, a board member with Okinawa International Women’s Club and an etiquette instructor teaching “Shine as you Dine”. Additionally, she has been giving authentic Greek cooking classes for 9 years. She was a prior ZUMBA instructor and is now the very first certified OPACIZE™ Instructor in Okinawa and all of Japan. If you are looking for a fun way to stay fit give Opacize a try!
