As a physician specializing in integrative medicine (internal medicine, medical acupuncture, herbal therapy and Chinese medicine I am a advocate for living a balanced life (physical, emotional, spiritual, social, mental and environmental). Blending my passion for health, wellness and dance led to my becoming a certified zumba instructor over ten years ago.
Zumba is a total-body cardio and aerobic workout, which provides a large calorie consumption. Because Zumba offers different options, proponents of the Zumba program claim that it is safe for all ages.
I love dancing and felt offering a complementary dance fitness class was a way of showing my allegiance to the Organization and provide value for members doing something we all enjoy- , and have been offering early morning Zumba classes at the Convention since 2010 it has become a staple. There are no wrong moves in zumba and dancing is exercise in disguise. With the Nigerian music interspersed in the routine people seem to enjoy it!!
Hope to see everyone in DC!
