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: I'm a mother of two boys, a wife, a part-time employee, and love to organized events, get togethers with friends, so 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!

Dear all at Sol Axe Thank you for your hard work in putting this together. It was amazing! Eva

Wonderful! I enjoyed the location of the beautiful Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort in Nosara, Costa Rica. The all inclusive amenities (i.e. prepared meals, beach towels, laundry service, etc) enhanced the stay. The courteous and attentive staff also heightened the retreat experience. Much love and respect to Andreina, Mary and Elika, the instructors who coordinated the retreat. The ladies were phenomenal! The classes that I participated in were rigorous and challenging. They met my expectations. The class schedule and excursions were posted daily on the white board, this helped with logistics and planning. It was a wonderful group of people on a very memorable trip.

I almost don't want to post this so people don't find out how awesome this is and it gets sold out next year. I am not sure I could have had more fun. I took advantage of all the classes, spent time meeting new people and basically said "yes" to everything. It was well organized and laid back at the same time. The hotel and the food was great. The people were lovely and I learned to love Zumba. So great, can not wait until 2018.
