Zumba with Alejandra is now in El Paso, TX!

Currently, I'm pregnant with my second child due in Spring of 2018. I'll be taking some time off of teaching regular weekly classes, but will still be subbing at Zumba at Jazz2000 when possible.

WHAT IS ZUMBA?

Zumba Fitness® combines high energy and motivating music with easy-to-follow, unique moves and combinations that allow participants to dance away their worries. It’s an exhilarating and effective Latin-inspired calorie-burning dance fitness-party™ that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health. Open to all levels. 

GENERAL TIPS:

HAVE FUN!!! Enjoy the music and let your body move!
  • Do not get discouraged if it seems overwhelming or you can’t get the steps the first time. It will get easier over time.
  • It takes time to build stamina, if you feel like it is too intense take a break. Listen to your body and move at your own pace.
  • Zumba is a full body workout - engage your core, keep your arms moving, and shake it.
  • Modify the steps that don’t feel good and march it out as needed. 
  • Shoes are recommended. Cross Training Shoes with lateral support and minimal traction are ideal.
