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.

As I describe my experience at this yoga and Zumba retreat to my friends and family, I realize how enjoyable and fun the whole experience was for me. The retreat resort was wonderful, along with the food and staff. The warm, diverse, and intelligent group that gathered from all over were amazing. Moreover, I say muchas gracias to the organizers/teachers Andreina, Adriana, and Charles for their attention to details, planning, scheduling the dancing and yoga classes. It was fantastic!!

What a marvelous experience.!! There was so much warmth, love and caring that my husband and I felt immediately upon meeting Andreina and Adriana.This is one of the best trips we have taken. Andreina was extremely professional and communicated with us frequently to keep us informed. The location was paradise, and the activities planned were varied and interesting - something for everyone. So well organized . Anndreina and Adriana were fabulous dancers, and Charles was so patient and a terrific trainer. They provided such great classes and Ronald provided technical support to insure that all went smoothly and there would be lasting memories. We also loved meeting her family who were filled with such warmth and made us feel like family. Everyone was so patient and it didn't matter what level you were, they made everyone feel successful. The group was so dynamic and varied and everyone bonded together quickly. On my birthday Andreina and my daughter planned a surprise celebration complete with singing , cards signed by everyoneand a cake! I was touched and humbled and filled with such gratitude and happiness which I will treasure always. They even inspired my husband to take his first Zumba class.!! Finally as a retired Zumba teacher I have to say this experience exceeded our expectations went above and beyond what was needed. I learned something new each time I went to class. I highly recommend this program and we plan to go again with this group. Thank you for a very memorable experience❤️ Sharon and Courtney
This trip was absolutely perfect. Wonderful people, great classes, delicious food, gorgeous location. It was truly one of the most enjoyable, relaxing weeks I can remember. Thanks for all the hard work that went on behind the scenes that made our stay effortless.

Such an incredible trip. Andreina, Charles and Adriana did a fantastic job putting the whole retreat together. The group was fantastic and the location was so beautiful and relaxing. Would definitely go again.
This trip was a great experience, not only because of the wonderful destination, but mostly because the way it was organized made the entire group feel very solid and able to take advantage of every single experience: bus rides were fantastic and comfortable, drivers were very safe, the food was amazing and varied, the flexibility to choose our own food was great for me! The tour guides were particularly attentive and knowledgeable, and the organizer, Andreina, was olways taking care of every detail, so our group felt taken care of. Great experience! I can’t wait to my next trip with Andreina :)
