Zumba Fitness

This class is taught by:

Mandy Brugger

Hi!! My name is Mandy and I have been involved in teaching fitness since 2003, when I started teaching a step class in the Flint area. After having twin boys in 2005 I took a little break from teaching fitness. I attended a girls night out, Zumba night, with my mom and sister at Body Language and became completely obsessed. In May of 2008 I went to the Zumba Basic 1 training and started teaching classes that June. I absolutely love teaching Zumba and am thrilled to be teaching at Body Language. When I am not teaching Zumba, I teach 7th and 8th grade science at White Lake Middle school. I also spend as much time as possible with my amazing boys. Sam plays soccer and baseball, and Ethan takes dance classes. However, both boys continue to want to add activities to our schedule.

Tricia Auten

Several Years of experience teaching fitness classes, personal training and wellness advising. Bachelor of Exercise Science, Wellness & Health Promotion from Oakland University. On a more serious note I expect my students to sweat, workout like it’s their last and NOT drop their quarter!

.Andrea Von Behren

Did you know that Andrea has never lost a hula hoop contest, in fact she was on Bozo's Big Top show ( hula hooping of course!). Her bucket list includes going to Alaska and hiking through the Grand Canyon. Who would have guessed that her favorite songs are: Mama Mia, Hairspray, Grease! (only all of us that have been in her ZUMBA classes!)
I love the fact that life has led me down this road of health and enabled me to touch so many students' lives. I am truly passionate about offering a fitness, yoga and nutrition program that allows every student to look and feel his/her best and am SO grateful to be surrounded by an awesome staff who share my passion and a wonderful family who have supported me every step along the way. The training that I received in order to be able to effectively share my passions include my degree from MSU as a Registered Dietitian, A.C.E Fitness Certification and Yoga Certification provided by Jonny Kest’s Center for Yoga as well as over 13 years of teaching experience. Look forward to having YOU in class!!

Emily Donohue

My name is Emily, and I am so excited to begin this journey of teaching Zumba! Body Language has been a big part of my life since I was in high school. The community is amazing, and I am so blessed to be able to teach here! When I started college, I knew I needed to find a workout that would help me stay fit, and also have fun while doing it. I fell in love with dancing, and it is definitely one of my favorite workouts! Currently I am in nursing school, and will be graduating this December! My dance partner is Chandler, and we can’t wait to dance with you!

Marie Volansky

Marie's dream vacation would be to spend 3 months travelling all of Europe.  Her favorite book(s) are the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Life of Pi! Marie loves animals and spends most of her time with her husband and 2 standard poodles.
I have had a passion for fitness my entire life. I previously worked in the fitness industry for 14 years managing multi-million dollar fitness studios and as a certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor. I took a break from the fitness world to work in the corporate world for 10 years and I realized how much I missed working with people to help them reach their fitness goals. I started as a member at Body Language several years ago, I soon realized that I wanted to get back into teaching group fitness classes. The community atmosphere at Body Language is so supportive and like nothing I have ever experienced at any other fitness or yoga studio. I am currently ZUMBA® and R.I.P.P.E.D.™ trained. Carri Lee is my Zumba Team partner. We hope to see you in one of our classes soon.
