Hey There,

I'm DeAnn!

Bringing health, wellness & fitness to your school, office, conference room, work or other creative space.

Hi. I'm DeAnn, or Dee, and I am the founder of LEAP-groove Mobile Studio, a female, Latina owned, Flagstaff, Arizona fitness company.​ I am a retired classroom teacher of 20+ years, mom of three truly amazing people, and lover of humans, nature, chocolate, animals, learning and health , fitness & wellness. My favorite class to teach right now is Paddle Board yoga because it combines all of my favorite things: water, sunshine, laughter and healing through movement.​ Some other classes I teach that also bring me great joy are: Young at Heart Music & Movement, Chair Yoga, Lift Your Spirits Yoga, Poolates, and Body Groove. 

LEAP-Groove Mobile studio is meant to provide group fitness & wellness opportunities for people of all ages, genders, abilities & ethnicities that bring us together, empower us to love ourselves and one another unconditionally, celebrate diversity, and nurture health, healing and laughter so that we may fully embrace the radiant human beings we are all meant to be.

Find what moves you and your workout will be the highlight of your day! A happy body is a healthy body.
