Debbie Bermudez

Zumba

Hello! My name is Debbie and I am the founder of Ginger Movements. We have offered a variety of programs for all ages since 2016 but this season I’m excited to be joining you for Zumba! It’s a dance fitness class which can be done by all fitness levels and motivates participants to let loose and dance like no one is watching. All with the support of an instructor led class that ensures no one is left searching for their next move. I’ve delivered programming through peak physical fitness alongside a rigorous training regime, started back up again following a 6 month hiatus required by a back injury a few years back and now again am opening back up after heart failure resulting in open heart surgery just over a year ago in the midst of the pandemic which ‘shall not be named’.  Beyond having a pretty cool scar to show for it, my own experience reinforces the fact that anyone can begin the journey to increasing activity and wellness in their own life regardless of where they are starting from or how many times they have had to re-start in the past. We are all on this journey so please come and join me in making 2022 an active and dance filled year!

Katherine Frey

Yoga

After years of competitive figure skating and then becoming a ballroom dance teacher, Katherine’s body was tired and in chronic pain. So, in 2006, at the recommendation of one of her dance students, she decided to try yoga, not really knowing what it was.  The shift in her body from that first practice was instantaneous and she felt better than she had in years. Within a month of practicing yoga, Katherine’s back pain was almost completely gone! In 2013 Katherine decided to further her love and knowledge of yoga by taking her first teacher training. She is now an ERYT-500 hour teacher with training in Akhanda, Pre/Post Natal, Blissology, and Yin Yoga. Katherine is also a Certified Ballroom Dance Examiner and holds a Diploma of Acupuncture.
 

Lavini Lenny

Zumbini

I moved to Chappelle 3 years ago. I'm a wife to a geeky software developer and mom to a feisty little girl. I discovered Zumbini while on maternity leave and immediately decided to get certified. I love singing and dancing with my kiddo and I love introducing the program to other parents. I'm so lucky to run sessions in this awesome community.

Janelle Larsen

GirlLife

Hi!  My name is Janelle.  I am a certified Girlife workshop facilitator, a mom, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend, but most importantly I am a GIRL, and I wish I had a program like Girlife when I was young.  I am here to help our young girls realize their own unique superpowers and understand they already have everything they need living inside of them to help them deal with any situation.  Our workshops are full of thought-provoking dialogue, crafts to illustrate the teachings, mindful play, music and fun!  I love kids, crafting, reading, running, nature and being outside, and I can't wait to share with the girls!
