Instructors:

 Charles Poon finds inhabiting a human body to be a great gift and movement practices to be a powerful gateway to keeping body, mind, and spirit in harmony. Having been a dedicated martial artist and athlete for years, he came across yoga almost a decade ago and has since dedicated his life to this beautiful path.

His yoga and TRX classes offer a fun, safe space for students to take charge of their own bodies and make their practice their own. Charles aspires for his students to find ease and a light attitude in even the most challenging moments, as this best supports a consistent practice that will yield breakthrough after breakthrough and keep the body going for years to come. Some fun music and partner exercises along the way also don’t hurt!

Charles gives a deep bow to all his teachers, past and present, including Timothy Lynch, Sarah Stone-Francisco, and the Asta Yoga family. Another deep bow to the lineage: Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Larry Schultz, creators of Ashtanga Vinyasa and the Rocket.


 Adriana Oyarzun: Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. Adriana was surrounded by music and fell in love with dancing at a young age. She discovered Zumba in 2005 and became a certified instructor in 2014. She strongly believes in the power of dance and loves to experience the magic that happens in each class. Dance always takes Adriana to her happy place and this is a secret that she loves sharing! Adriana lives in the Bay Area with her husband and two daughters and is also a lifestyle family photographer.   


Andreina Febres: Mother of two boys, a wife, a part-time Safe Water project employee, and trip & event organizer. Love to get togethers with friends, and teaching Zumba gives me the honor to meet amazing people. I'm inspired by many of my students and friends I've met since 2009. I'm very fortunate!!!

I was born and raised in Venezuela. Dancing was a big part of my life growing up and now getting people to dance with me is my passion. I truly care about people that are taking my class, making sure that you can enjoy yourself, follow us and have a good time. Come to my classes and see what I mean!

We love to travel, and create a community that supports each other. We love to relax and dance, we love to eat healthy and drink wine . We love to swim, meditate, practice yoga; experience the places we visit in an adventurous way. When we travel, we respect people around us and we take care of each other. We've done this since 2013 and we plan to continue organizing these unforgettable vacations for you...leaving our footprints (huellas)! Our groups are very diverse; from teenagers that take our classes in the Bay Area to seniors that are retired. We're a very welcoming group of respectful people that appreciate and celebrate each other.

This was a great trip, filled with many sites and adventures. Andreina, Franklin, and all of our tour guides did a terrific job of presenting the best of Peru! The days were busy, but we got to see so much more than I would have on my own. They have a wonderful energy and I highly recommend this tour.
I had a lovely time.. Peru's sights are breathtaking and the experience was unforgettable. The group was lively and well organized. Andreina and the local hosts worked very hard to address any issues encountered and were very gracious facilitating the activities of each day, keeping us informed and handling everyday minutia. The tour flowed smoothly and it shows they worked very meticulously to provide a special experience, pleasant stays, unique culinary opportunities and informational tours. The hotels we stayed at were comfortable and pleasant. We got presents, treats, surprises and even a special treat to a 7 course delightful lunch that blew my mind off. From the food sampled, to the settings, to the exquisite attentions given to us by the hosts and vendors I had a lovely time. I'm very happy and grateful for such a special experience.
Andreina is an amazing trip leader. Our group had such a special time together in Peru. I usually travel alone but was drawn to Peru and this trip and I do not regret it! Andreina has an amazing way of bringing people together. This trip was well-organized, packed with fun/inspiration and truly unforgettable. Thank you!!

This retreat was loaded with good energy from the teachers, other participants, retreat center and staff, location, wide variety of activities, weather . . . I could go on and on. It was fabulous!
