Lunar Light Up 2023
Happy Lunar New Year !
I love this time of year for so many reasons–all of the festivities, feasts, and gatherings of family and friends! Days of reunions, late night mahjong games, a break from regular routines, delicious meals and snacks– these are the things the best memories in life are made of! And at the same time, I know that any holiday time can sometimes stress us out big time!
So often in the weeks leading up to and the weeks following Lunar New Year, I hear students grumbling about the fear of gaining weight from overindulging, the pressure to present themselves well in the face of family interrogations, or just feeling pretty crappy in general after a week or more of lying around a whole lot.
How can we balance celebrating with resting?
Eating our favorite foods with keeping our health in mind?
Family time with some moments for ourselves?
This Lunar Light Up! is all about helping you feel energized, active, and glowing —inside and out— the entire week of Lunar New Year!
During this 8 day program,
You will receive:
8 health + Mind Tips
Feeling good is about much more than just our physical bodies. Each day we’ll explore topics such as health goals, checking our mindset, nutrition tips, building healthy habits and more! We’ve got you covered with useful ideas for you to try out each day!
8 Dance Breakdowns
Feeling lost while following along? No sweat! I’m breaking down one routine per day so that you can feel confident when taking class all week! These Dance Breakdowns are perfect for beginners to learn the basic steps in a Zumba class, and fun for Zumba lovers who would like to improve their technique and commit a routine to memory!
8 Daily Emails
To help keep you connected and motivated all week long!
Stay connected with us through a private Facebook group! This will be our place to interact, listen, inspire, and support one another throughout the program. Each day there will be a call to action for us to share our small wins, challenges and fun facts about ourselves. Participation is highly encouraged!

How can I best use this program?
Lunar Light Up is here to support you in enjoying the celebration and rest of Lunar New Year, as well as to help you transition back to life after the holiday.
We recommend you read the Health + Mind Tips each morning, which can give you some ideas to incorporate into your day. (Remember to get your raffle ticket for the private class with Katie by commenting in the Facebook Group! )
Listen to your body. If you’re too tired or unable to take the prerecorded class, just take the day off and DO NOT blame yourself. If your body craves movement, set an alarm to remind you to dance.
Do what works for you. No judgment! This program is here to help you feel good throughout the holiday.
Can I sign up to do only a few days of the Lunar Light Up?
This program is actually designed so that you can miss a few days.
We understand Lunar New Year can be hectic for some days and boring for others. Before you know it, you are back to work tomorrow!! Make sure you read “How can I best use this program?” It'll give you a better idea of how to plan your time.
Can I share the classes with my family or friends?
We know many of you will be with family and friends during the holiday, so if you are together in one place, by all means, get everyone in your home dancing together!
We ask that you not share the password to the ZinStudio prerecorded class or the link to your exclusive Dance Skill video tips with others out of respect for all of those who have paid for the program.
Can I still use the course after the course is finished (Jan. 28)?
Each Prerecorded class is only available for that day from 05:30am to 05:29am (the next day). However, the Dance Song Breakdown Videos and Health + Mind Tips are yours to keep.
How do I design my class schedule?
This year we are giving you MORE FLEXIBILITY in planning your workouts by providing 8 different classes you can choose from each day. But sometimes more choices can make it more difficult to know where to start. You can simply ask yourself the following questions to design your class that day:
How many minutes do you want to dance today? (15, 30, 45, 60 )
How do you feel today? (Tired, Strong, Energetic, Ready to party! )
What do you want to work on today? (Arms, Hips + Abs, Lower Body, Balance)
I want to dance for 45 minutes today.
I feel tired and I want to work on my balance today.
So today I’m taking
1 30-min class
Fast Calorie Blast
Slow Down + Savor ✔
Strength + Resiliency
Feel Great + Celebrate
1 15-min class
Hot Hips +Abs
Lower Body Blast
Beautiful Balance ✔

How do I enter to win the private class with Katie?
All you need to do is to simply participate in our Lunar Light Up Facebook Group (link found in your daily newsletter)! Each day we will be making a “Take Action” post in the group.
