EZYMovez is a dance fitness programme that embraces diversity by incorporating a variety of global dance styles. This results in fun classes which are exciting and provide an effective cardio and muscle toning workout. The programme is suitable for people of all ages, cultures, and dance abilities.
We want to help people by promoting healthier lifestyles and fitness through dance. We want to provide the community with a safe and enjoyable programme where there are no restrictions, no boundaries, and no limits to what people can achieve through EZYMovez Dance Fitness. We encourage a sense of community and togetherness, where people can connect through music and dance whilst getting fit and having fun in a friendly, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere.
EZYMovez will be offering workshops for students which provide opportunities to improve technique and learn choreographies. Instructor workshops will also incorporate tips for cueing which will help you to become an effective and engaging instructor.
Our vision is to take the EZYMovez Dance Fitness programme to everyday people through community classes, gyms, and schools. We are passionate about providing students with fun classes that also deliver the necessary fitness components. Classes are about connecting with your students. We want to inspire instructors who show compassion, friendship, support, and create a sense of community where everyone feels welcome and included.
Hey! I'm Elaine Zafra Yu. I was born and raised in The Philippines, then later moved to the USA where my husband and I started our family. Now I am settled in Auckland, New Zealand, and love the life I have here.
Dancing has always been my passion. I have explored many forms of dancing including Latin, ballet, jazz, pop. One of the best things that I have discovered through dance, is its ability to bring people together and enjoy themselves.
My journey as a dance fitness instructor began through Zumba Fitness, and through the years it gave me the opportunity to express myself and grow as a person and leader. I was also fortunate enough to have been chosen by the Zumba Home Office in the USA to be a Zumba®jammer, meaning I was able to teach choreographies and techniques to ZIN members (Zumba Instructors). As well as this, after taking The U-Jam® Fitness training in Australia, I decided to bring it over to New Zealand and start the programme up from scratch.
Community spirit is what I am all about, and after experiencing the highs, lows and everything in between that this industry has to offer, I believe that there is a gap in the market here in New Zealand, and EZYMovez is here to fill it.
I believe in giving back to the community, and after being able to use the dance fitness platform to raise money for different causes in the past, I hope to be able to do the same through EZYMovez.
