Long before Thai boxing, aerobics or spinning, there was African dance and the electrifying sounds of African drumming. Now, for the first time, internationally acclaimed dancer, drummer, teacher and choreographer Joneeba Mouflet has created a teacher training certification program for his innovative, fun and proven-effective workout, Joneeba™, which he has been successfully teaching for 18 years. No fancy equipment or huge investment of money or time is necessary. Joneeba™ can be taught anywhere. All you need is the passion to be at the forefront of this revolutionary fitness program. It will open the door to an exciting new career opportunity.
Based on the principles of exercise physiology for a complete body workout, Joneeba™ focuses on the dances and drums of Africa. It combines a unique body stretching, strengthening and toning warm-up along with powerful yet graceful and simple West African dance movements that are methodically broken down so that everyone and anyone can learn and have a good time. Incorporating body, mind, and spirit, Joneeba™ is the perfect holistic workout. But most of all, Joneeba™ is fun fitness.
