Alma Moya came out of the womb dancing. She sashayed her way through Texas where she grew up and attended the University of Texas in Austin.  She discovered the theatre at the age of 14 and was immediately hooked. Upon receiving her degree in Cultural Anthropology she set out to combine her love of performance, movement and dance with her intrigue of all cultures.

It was a magical theatrical dance performance in college that fiercely engrained dance into every crevice of her body. She immersed herself in the study of Raqs Sharqi (belly dance) and Polynesian dance with additional training in Latin dance.

Upon settling in Los Angeles, Alma quickly realized the importance health, attitude and therapeutic movement played in a life filled with hustle & bustle.  Due to a health incident in 2005, she took a leave of absence from everything and armed herself in diet and fitness research. Through this life altering experience, Alma began to drastically change the way she viewed food and fitness. The food choices she made became paramount to her health. She studied intently the teachings of many nutrition philosophies including those of Dr. Weston Price, Deepak Chopra and Sally Fallon.

Alma is the founder and head instructor for Sassy Dance Workout and a certified Pilates instructor through the Body Arts and Science International School.

Currently, she lives all over Morocco teaching fitness.    

When not teaching, writing, acting or dancing, she’s cooking up various other endeavors. One that sounds mighty good right now:  An organic lavender farm in the south of France, where writings flow freely, the barnyard is the local pilates/dance hot spot and a sweet musical man knows how to cook us up something fierce
