Endorphins = Less cortisol (cortisol is your stress hormone)

Reduced cortisol = Less stress, better sleep, improved cognition

Better sleep = Improved emotion & weight management

Improved cognition = Increased productivity/ more time for YOU

What is Groove?

Meet your instructor:

Hi. I'm DeAnn, or Dee, and I am the founder of LEAP-groove Mobile Studio. The Covid-19 pandemic brought many challenges, struggles, and disappointments to my world, but it also brought significant, life-affirming changes. The time at home, quarantined and sheltered in place while the world navigated our new normal, I began a journey of education for myself. I have spent the last two years deciding what I really wanted to do and be for the rest of my life, and I landed here, as a health, wellness & fitness guide.

If you are struggling to find peace, love or joy in your mind, body, or soul, I hope you'll click on the "contact" button above, so we can talk about what your health and wellness journey may look like. 

One of our love notes:

“I have a talented friend who just became a Groove instructor. To support her in her new class, I decided to check it out this morning. In my mind, I was doing it more for her than for me. Then magic happened!  I felt how energizing and freeing the rhythmic movements felt. Stomping, swaying, jumping, cha-cha-ing. There were lots of gentle reminders to “move in your own way“ and “do what feels good.” And the best part? After what seems like endless months in pandemic mode, it was so fun to do it with nine other women, each moving their own way. Thanks, Dee Mendoza Engelthaler for creating a judgement free zone and the opportunity to get energized through C.onnections with my body and the energy of others! If you haven’t yet today, get moving, connect with yourself and R.O.C.K. thru!”
