Health and fitness became a passion of mine back in 2007 when, exhausted with all aspects of my life, I decided to take the stairs, walk to school, jog, and even join a dance and yoga class. As I began to use my body, I became shockingly aware of the physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion I had once accepted. With each step, I became stronger.
As my strength grew, I decided to use my newfound energy to help others fight the sedentary life. In August 2009 I became ZUMBA® Fitness certified. Five months later, I started teaching my first class and have not stopped teaching since. ZUMBA® Fitness, a dance-fitness program, opened my eyes to the power of exercise and its ability to impact and transform lives.
I have founded Body Bonita, LLC with the hope of providing a time and space for others to discover their inner strength, just as I did years ago. I believe that through exercise and self-care, everyone has the ability to uncover and connect with their inner bonita (beauty) and live a healthy and happy life.
