Zumba instructor brings all the moves to her role as life enrichment assistant!
Rouba Sawaf spent six years at Aberdeen Village in Olathe before recently bringing her passion for exercise to Lawrence Presbyterian Manor. “My son enrolled at KU, so I moved to Lawrence to be closer to him,” she explained.
That’s good news for residents, as Rouba’s chair Zumba classes have been packed since she started them last year.
“It’s great for upper body, but we also get our legs involved,” she said. “We typically have about 20 residents in any given class.” The Zumba classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while she also teaches a dumb bell class every other Friday.
Rouba is a certified Zumba instructor, having taught at Genesis Health for a number of years, as well as other fitness centers.
