Life Changes

Welcome to Sacramento sign

2018 has brought changes for me and my family.

Our youngest and only daughter graduated high school and now is attending CSU San Marcos.

After living in San Francisco for 26 years, we had the opportunity to relocate to Sacramento.

It is not easy to begin again especially in your mid 50’s.  I need to remind myself what a very wise woman told me years ago,  ” Jackie, we must keep an open heart and an open mind to serendipity.”

We miss many things from San Francisco, especially our friends, student athletes, and colleagues. 

I hope to begin teaching group fitness classes in Sacramento and bring more Zumba Gold classes ­čÖé .  

In the meantime, I look forward to exploring the many activities the Sacramento Delta Area has to offer.

The first month of the new year is about to come to a close and a new month begins.  The month of February brings some changes.

Saturday, February 4th will be the last class of Zumba fitness at SFYBA location. It has been nearly 8 years ago that I started this class and I would like to thank Kellie Foy for allowing me to share the fun, dance fitness program of Zumba to the studio. I have enjoyed working and being part of a wonderful dance studio in my neighborhood. I hope you all still want me back as Grandma Stahlbum in “Nutcracker”

Beginning February 2, Cynthia Bringas will take over 7am Zumba Fitness at Stonestown Family YMCA.  Thank you all for the last 5 years, it has been a joy being part of your early morning workout.

Announcing a new Zumba Gold-Toning Class beginning Monday, February 6 at 8:00am at Stonestown Family YMCA. Don’t forget to bring your toning sticks. I am looking forward to teaching this format.

Changes are good…
