I have being dancing since I was a little kid, Ballet and Classic were my favourite till I had the choice to get to meet Belly dancing, I fell in love with the movements and the waves of its dance, also I got surprised with all its positive effects in mind and body.

I have been dancing Belly Dancing for 15 years and teaching for eight, I feel amazed when the students improve and feel happy about their movements and bodies

My mission as an instructor is to provide a welcoming space full of motivation. Where my students can explore their own practice, and develop their very own personal yoga journey and self-transformation.

I am passionate about the art of movement and expresses my passion through Yoga and Latin Dance.

I discovered Yoga 8 years ago and I was amazed at how the practice of yoga made me feel so happy. after finishing my first Yoga class it all clicked and I knew my life would be forever changed and from that moment on and it has.

It was during my 200-hour Yoga teacher training that I discover TRX suspension training and decided to get certify to teach it. I found that it gives you a perfect balance between flexibility and strength and as an instructor it helps me to enrich my yoga classes and own practice.

I initially approached Yoga as a way to improve my flexibility and find peace of mind and calmness and has since discovered it has helped me to be more patient with myself and others. It has taught me to listen to and nurture my body and mind.

A regular yoga practice has made me more open and accepting to whatever life throws at me.

Viri is also a TRX certified instructor and is very close to complete her Pilates training.

Hola Amigos

I was born and raised in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.  I moved to Canada to study English, and ended up staying, married a Canadian and had 2 wonderful boys.  As much as I love Canada, I have to say "something was missing" and that is related to who I am and where I come from,,,

Even though I have being in fitness for many years,  I first heard about Zumba® on 2008 in a trip to Mexico, and then by coincidence got certified on 2009.  After my second boy was born, I started to teach more and more.

Attending my first Zumba® convention in Orlando Florida in 2011 and a Zumba® Conference in Los Angeles in 2014, being surrounded by more than 7,000 instructors from all around the world made me realize that I wanted to  teach as much as I can.

I found out than even on days when I'm feeling down, sad or homesick, Zumba® connects me with my music, culture and family,  Zumba® recharges my energy level and puts a big smile on my face!

It is a pleasure for me to be a Zumba® instructor, and being able to inject some positive energy into someone's day just makes me happy !

Remember that research has shown that  "moving or dancing with others is beneficial by improving social skills, lifting your spirit and even reversing depression "

So let's move together and let me share with you the wonder I have found in Zumba®Fitness !!!

I fell in love with Zumba® the very first time I attended a class.

Dancing has always been my passion and Latin music has always been my favorite. As a Zumba® Instructor, I have the best of both worlds.

Now that I am an instructor, my love for Zumba fitness keeps growing. I am working hard to advance and sharpen my skills.  I am certified in Zumba®, Zumba® Kids, Zumba® Toning and Zumba® Step, I hope to add more certifications to my list in the near future.

Zumba® fitness makes people happy, it is an electrifying joy.

I hope to share my love and passion for Zumba with all my students.

Hey!  My name is Jocelyn and I fell in love with Zumba® in 2010. A friend of mine was addicted to it and said I had to try it. For many years I was involved in dance and even taught for  a while, and I’ve always had a membership to some gym, so after my first Zumba® class I was hooked! The combination of dance and fitness was right up my alley.  I started taking classes at Latin Flavours Fitness when they first opened about 5 days a week, and cancelled my gym membership!  The amazing people there inspired me to become an instructor. I am a full time Special Ed Assistant and I too understand how busy life can get and how hard it can be to stay motivated. But once I hear the music and start moving, I forget that I’m even working out.
You don’t have to be a dancer to enjoy Zumba®, it’s about getting up and dancing like nobody is looking! I’m excited to be a part of the Zumba® fitness community and look forward to shakin’ it with you!

Live, Love, Dance
