Meet Luciana, one of our Zumba instructors! 💃 ・・・ Luciana was born and raised in Brazil, where she found her passion for sports and dance at a very young age. While in Brazil, she played European handball professionally and performed with various dance groups. Just after high school she decided to leave her home country and chose Calgary to be her permanent hometown. ・・・ When Luciana moved to Calgary she continued developing her passion for dance and became an instructor. Since then, Luciana has been actively teaching dance and HIIT classes in Calgary. ・・・ Lu also performs in fundraisers! To name a few, she has danced for Cure for MLS, Breast Cancer Awareness, and Prostate Cancer! Her other performances have been for festivals with TropicArt Brazilian Dance Group! You can catch her dancing at Fiestaval, Sun & Salsa, Globalfest and the Lilac Festival! All of her performances feature samba, salsa, frevo, funk and other Brazilian rhythms! ・・・ If you love an instructor who is outgoing, bubbly, and full of energy, check Lu’s classes out on Mondays and Wednesdays at 12:15pm, and Wednesdays at 5pm!
Today I was invited to instruct a private Zumba class for a women’s group. They meet once a month and wanted to try something new so they thought why not try Zumba?! I loved this idea so I came out and shared my favourite routines with them. A lot of them have never tried Zumba but they caught on so fast and I could tell they were enjoying themselves. They had such a contagious energy that it really felt like we were having a party 💃🏻🎉 Thanks for having me!!! 💕 If you want to inquire about a private class or special event please msg me 😊

In December 2016 I became certified as a basic level fitness instructor for #walk15 & then in the summer of 2017 I became certified as a master level walk15 instructor which is the highest certification i can get with them. I have absolutely loved teaching for the past 1.5 years!!! ❤️ I had a goal to become a personal trainer or group fitness instructor and even bought all of my materials and books. I didn’t end up taking the test due to the money and the fact that every two years I have to re-certify and pay to take continuing education classes. I’m not in a place in my life right now to be able to make money teaching full-time so I can’t continue to pay for certifications and continuing education classes when I’m not making money teaching. However, I believe that education is still important so I love using my books as resources to help me be a better group fitness instructor with Walk15! thankfully my monthly walk15 teaching expenses are very minimal right now which helps me keep my classes free to the public or at a very low cost. It’s important that my Walk15 classes always be affordable so i can help others better their health and fitness. 👟👟✨ #empowermoms#walkstrongroanoke#fitnessblogger#fitnessinstructor#groupfitnessinstructor#groupfitness#nccpt#lesliesansone#groupexercise#continuingeducation#roanokeva#betteryourself#personaltraining
