After Years of Fun Zumba Classes, I'm Going to Be a Zumba Instructor!

Exercise in Disguise!

     I have written this Zumba Mexico blog since January 2014, almost three years! I can hardly believe it! That's when I fell in love with Zumba as "Exercise in Disguise" and came up with the wild idea of traveling around Mexico in our motorhome, attending Zumba classes in each town we visited. My husband, Jon, being the good sport that he is, agreed to this crazy, fun adventure. 
     We met so many great people throughout Mexico, including Zumba Instructors and other Zumba students, as enthusiastic about Zumba as I am. I learned many fun Latin dances, even managing to get my hips to move. That's a real challenge for a gringa! 
     I continued to attend Zumba classes at the YMCA when we were back in the United States and even helped start a Zumba Gold class at Mountain Meadows Retirement Community in Ashland, Oregon. It was so fun to get the seniors moving in a new way and having fun. I knew Zumba would always be my preferred fitness class. But I never thought I would become a Zumba Instructor.
     In September I decided to take the Zumba Instructor Basic Training and received by Official Zumba Instructor Certificate! The class was grueling, and that was just the beginning. Now I am working hard to perfect my music playlist and choreography. Soon I will be teaching Zumba in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico!
I Am Proud to Have Earned My Certificate

     You will now find my class schedule on when you seach for Instructors or classes in Sayulita.  I am excited to be part of the ZIN Network, working hard to improve my Zumba knowledge and skill. 
     This is probably my last post on the Zumba Mexico blog. But you can continue to follow me on my other two blogs:
