Zumba with Victoria Genisce - 'Every class is like a party! I've been active in sports & dancing since age nine. Dance is my biggest passion. I've studied jazz - modern - hip hop - bellydance - latin & ballroom forms.  I'm always energized to move & inspire others to assist them in achieving their Fitness Lifestylegoals.' Victoria is trained & licensed by Zumba (including Zumba Aqua) at the highest levels. She helps classes impress themselves! 

Kickboxing with Dion Jackson - A man born to inspire others, Dion has coached & trained MegaStars Jennifer Lopez - Al Pacino - Jim Carey - Aaliyah & others. His philosophy about good health, 'a lot of people think it means being super buff or super strong. But good health is applicable to things you do in everyday living! It might be your ability to play with your children or pick them up. It could be as simple as being able to walk around your block or carry your luggage.'
Yoga with Ingrid Cheng 
Yoga has more than 5,000 yrs of history & today 11+ million Americans enjoy its health benefits in ways they never expected.  In one study participants realized 35% improvement in flexibility after just 8 wks of yoga. Yoga increases energy & reduces stress. It is a definite process of self-discovery + empowerment.
Optional: Therapeutic Massage by Mar Vista Health Center
Flower Therapy + Tea Ceremony by The MOA Wellness Center - promotes art, culture & wellness.

Healthy Breakfast

 Subscribe in a reader

The Healthy Breakfast-4-Kids (HB4K) goal is to create and improve access to breakfast in schools nationwide as a means to lessen the huge negative impact of hungry children across our nation. In 2012 Food Family Farming Foundation (F3) and Walmart Foundation are partnering to grant 117 $2500 equipment grants to high needs schools for the purpose of assisting in the successful establishment of universal breakfast in the classroom programs. Grant awardees will be able to order $2500 worth of food service smallwares or equipment to help support implementing breakfast in the classroom via an online order with our partner Tundra Specialties. As part of the grant program, F3 will create universal breakfast implementation resources to be available to all schools via our program, The Lunch Box.
