I am 58 years old and have kept 65 pounds off for 4 years now. Good nutrition, portion control and exercise are why. Today I lead 2 support groups at the Gym to try to encourage others to get healthy this way and learn “the new normal.” Group support and weekly accountability are equally helpful to succeed at the journey. All are welcome and loved!

Dona JungZumba Instructor
I have been teaching Zumba and Zumba Gold since June 2012. I have always loved dancing and took a few dance classes as a child. I am not a young chicken anymore so teaching Zumba makes me feel young and alive again and keeps me fit in the process. I have around 30-50 people in my Zumba Classes and we have so much fun. Last year my Zumba Gold Class was in the Berlin Christmas Parade and we got 2nd place!!!
I have been married for ten years and have a ten year old son. I also work as the Media Assistant at SonRise Church and I do Photography on the side. I am originally from PA and have lived on the Eastern Shore for 8 years now.I hope you will try out one of my classes either at WOC or Ocean Pines Recreation Center. Once you try it once you will be totally hooked. It is the only way to start your day!!!

Certified 200 hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance. Over ten years teaching experience in health clubs, schools, private studios, state parks, and The Wellness Community.
I discovered yoga when I was an undergraduate at Penn State University. It was the one exercise that made me feel whole. I decided to devote all of my energy towards the 2oo hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance). I have specialty certifications for prenatal/postpartum, seniors, and kids and a 200hr completion certification from YogaFit. I began teaching in Ocean City in 2003.
It has been a wonderful journey to work with clients of all levels and ages. Teaching while pregnant and teaching to infants and children is energizing. Literally feeling new life blossom is so complimentary to connecting with the prana, life force and energy that flows within us.
Senior classes are enlightening. I always leave feeling like the students have given me so much. Always open, willing, and delightful, I feel so grateful to work with those who have so much wisdom and experience to share.
I have been blessed to practice on vacations in Costa Rica, Hawaii, Florida and California. Taking yoga to the beach was a natural step. Feeling the sun, grounding in the earth, and listening to soothing surf is a sublime experience. I also teach yoga on the beach in the summers in Ocean City and Assateague. Living on the coast is where all my pleasures have collided.
As a mother, runner, surfer, and yogini, I feel that yoga is the one thing that culminates all of my joys. From yoga I have learned patience, to slow down, enjoy the moment, stay open, and to go with the flow.
I hope you find as much joy as I have in our journey together.
Life is a series of moments; enjoy them.
