“I am happy to be in Goa as the place is completely relaxing and I feel like I’m breathing. I am super excited about introducing Zumba Global Brand Ambassador and Zumba Education Specialist. I have trained Sucheta for five years in the US and I have seen her
build upthe brand in India with such great success. I have been mentoring her for a long time,” says Maria, who develops new programs to help instructors grow as professionals.
