Camila “La Loca” Camaleón is a paradigm shifter, bridge-builder, and queer archivist based in the San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles. Her origin story began in the unceded Chumash territory in which the lessons were cemented upon her return home to the beautiful Tongva land. Her ARTivism centers joy, playfulness, and power as gender deviant folks to the center.

Heart Healing Movement is the embodiment of trekking soundscapes through your mind, body, soul, and spirit. As a SOULtrepreneur her practice is centered around the muscle of joy as a lifestyle. It is in her writing, the dance floor, and various speaking engagements that the practice of Heart Healing Movement commences. Through Camila’s specialty in leadership development, “La Loca” has been able to find power in her presence as the first Trans Woman President of the San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ+ Center.

Her Heart Healing Movement is most notably known through her ZOOMbA Con Camila! classes that occur via various partnerships with LGBTQ+ service-based organizations. By hearing the rhythm of the world one practices playfulness by dancing, shaking it up, and owning the beat!
