TietoaHeippa heippa! My name is Gwen and I am a MSc student in public health at UEF. I come from Ohio (in the United States), where I got my bachelor’s degree in anthropology. With SYKETTÄ, I instruct Zumba classes. Zumba, which is dance-fitness based primarily in Latin music, is the perfect workout - the music is upbeat and the moves are energetic and fun, so you don’t even realize how much you’re sweating! I love to incorporate traditional Zumba music (salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, and merengue) with music inspired by my hometown (hip-hop and international tunes).
Please feel free to join the class whenever you can! Zumba becomes easier to follow the more than you practice, so coming to class twice per week is optimal. The class is for all levels of fitness; if a move is too easy, you can add in extra movements, and if it’s too hard then all moves can be simplified. Although I don’t speak Finnish, the communication in the class is all visual, so no English skills are needed! Welcome!
