  • If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be:  Alex Aris because she’s a dear friend
    and I am inspired by her story and flexibility.

  • I’m about to take my yoga to the next level because I’m surrounded by the wonderful
    Release teachers. I will have a plethora of opportunities to grow and learn! 

  • My heroes are: Maya Angelou. I met her once and the experience was profound. Maya embodied strength, kindness, and her words made me believe I could be anything-that I thought mattered. Also, my husband (Robert Cochran) because he’s the most honest and loyal person I know. 
 
  • My super power is: being a super-recognizer because I never forget a face! I once won a prize for matching celebrities with their baby photos!

Perfect for everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. 
 
We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise!
 
Our classes provide a total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.
