Meet the Instructors



Therese: I started studying Yoga in my twenties, at the university in Lie'ge (Belgium) and it has been part of my life ever since, I looked for and found it. I love to share what I know and I am always learning. Yoga gets better as you grow older with it. It is a mind and body thing, a useful discipline that is thousands of years old. It energizes you, makes you strong and resilient. It soothes your aches and helps you deal with life's challenges with equanimity. Yoga creates me-time and puts a smile on your face.




Maria: Teaching Zumba® Fitness classes continues to inspire and motivate me to do the best I can for my students.  It is a dream come true that I can teach new routines to such delightful, enthusiastic students who really want a change in their attitude and lifestyle. I say attitude because the flavors and the music keep us smiling and the lifestyle fuels our body and increases our energy!  It is such an incredible experience!  So what you are waiting for?  Party, have fun, and glow with me!  So much to celebrate…it’s all about you! Peace!  


Trish: I am a licensed Zumba Fitness instructor and have been teaching classes since 2015. I have been an avid "Zumba-holic" since 2011 when I took my first Zumba class in the Murray State Wellness Center. Zumba Fitness helped me incorporate exercise into my daily life. I never knew exercise could be so fun! As an instructor, I want to provide my students with the same opportunity to have fun while getting healthy. Try out my class...I promise you will sweat, burn calories, and have a blast! I can't wait to see you on the dance floor!


Chanel: I have been a licensed Zumba instructor since 2013. I currently teach five classes a week in Murray and Mayfield and I love the energy and enthusiasm that Zumba brings to everyone involved. I am a teacher by profession and have always had a passion for dance so it's thrilling to be able to combine the two as a Zumba instructor. Not a dancer? Nervous to try Zumba? Perfect! Come to my class!! You'll have so much fun getting lost in the music that your worries will fade away and you'll completely forget you're exercising!!

Take the next step
