Monday nights at Alliance look a lot livelier thanks to our volunteer Zumba instructor, Sandra Herrera. Beginning in October 2018, Sandra began teaching our weekly Zumba class that is free for patients. This 60-minute dance exercise class is a perfect way for our patients to get moving, build community, and relax from daily stressors. Sandra’s contagious joy and incredible energy make her a perfect fit for the Alliance volunteer team. She also connects easily with our Spanish-speaking patients as a bilingual instructor.
“When you come to Alliance, you instantly feel a connection. The environment is relaxing and the people inspire me to keep volunteering. I feel blessed to volunteer here.”
Zumba is one of the many ways Alliance approaches health in a compassionate, comprehensive way through our Healthy Steps Wellness Program. Healthy Steps offers hands-on, inspiring, and educational opportunities to help patients achieve their personal health goals. We are so thankful for our Zumba class and to have Sandra on the Alliance team!
