    I love Lita’s Zumba classes. She brings positive energy, great music and modifications to her classes. I can’t wait to take one of her Zumba classes again!

    Thank you, Jen! It was so much fun having you in my Zumba class! You have such high energy and you were my high impact model for the class to follow. I can see all how much you love Zumba from the huge smile on your face!

    It brings me great pleasure to write a review for this exceptional woman. For the 4 years I've known Lita, she's proven to be a dedicated instructor, who cares for her students' safety, consistently fills the class, takes the time to connect with her students, & encourages them in their fitness goals. Lita is descriptive, challenging, & thorough in her yoga practice. She incorporates strength, flexibility, & balance in her sessions. She's a hard-worker, inspiring, & knowledgeable in her field. I hope you get the opportunity to take her class one day, if you haven't already.

    I absolutely love Lita's yoga class!! She works you up in order to heat and strengthen your muscles and continues with poses that allows you to really stretch them out :D. I always feel so rejuvenated after attending her class. Also, she really helped me out by giving me some heart opening stretches when I felt sore in that area. I'm just sad that I can't attend her classes on the the regular since I moved out of town but any time I am in town I make sure to clear my schedule for that class.
    Thank you Lita!

    I started going to Lita's Hoth Yoga class without ever doing a yoga class a little over a year ago. She is a patient instructor that is able to explain difficult techniques and poses to people new to yoga without making them seem impossible. I love her class and I have recommended it to many different people I know. I have also taken a few Zumba classes from her in Glendale and she has so much energy that she keeps it up beat but easy to follow! If you can definitely take Lita, you won't be disappointed!!!!
