Certified to teach Zumba, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold, Aqua Zumba, Strong Nation and Pop Pilates
I was born and raised in Peru and moved to the Bay Area in 2001. I have been active in fitness most of my life and have always loved dancing. After being a healthcare worker for over 8 years I decided to stay at home to take care of my 2 kids. Soon after, I found a Zumba class and it became “my happy place”. One hour to de-stress and let myself go into the music...I was immediately hooked! I felt free and full of happiness!
I became a licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor in 2012 and a Certified Group Fitness Instructor through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) in 2013. I grew up listening and dancing to all Latin rhythms like Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, and Reggaeton. And you will dance to them in my classes. However, you will also find other rhythms from around the world in my class! I love music, I love dancing and I love to choreograph!
I continue to attend dance education workshops whenever possible. Some of my favorites include Zumba Jam Sessions, Zumba Master Classes, Strong Nation Sync Labs, and Pop Pilates.
I believe exercise should be fun! Everyone can dance, and although it might be easier for some than others, the amount of fun you can have doing it is up to you!
Do you want to have fun and burn some calories at the same time?
Let’s have our happy sweat!
