Our Thanksgiving Thanks

By | blog | No Comments

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway —
Thanksgiving comes again!

By | blog, featured, pastevents | No Comments

An all inclusive 4 nights 5 days (airfare included) at the breath taking beach in Club Indigo, Haiti. Join us in a majestic surrounding for an extended weekend filled with the most fun you will ever have. We want to get you prepped for 2015, this is our pre- New Year’s resolution. Or should we say damage control before the holiday season?

You will have three amazing hosts for those 5 days: Irena Meletiou, Diego Chauca, and Edmee Cherdieu. They have designed an intense yet fun and invigorating class schedule with various fitness activities. You will have 12 classes to chose from, but don’t worry this is a Zumba Beach Bum retreat, so no one will force you to get up and dance if you decide to cultivate the beach bum part… lol.

  • Zumba
  • Aqua Zumba (in the ocean!)
  • Zumba Step (the latest Zumba speciality program)
  • Abs and Core
  • Early Morning Water Workout
  • Zumba DanceHall Flavor
  • Zumba Cumbia Flavor
  • Stretching

All classes will take place outside. Also, for the more active participants, we will offer early morning workouts – really invigorating especially after a night of dancing. Join us for 5 days of fun physical activities while enjoying the sea, getting your winter glow, and of course getting into top shape. Every day will be filled with two to three classes. All classes will be 60 minutes long! We intend to work hard and party hard at the same time. On Saturday night we will relax on the sand while enjoying a fresh refined dinner (lobster, oysters, grilled fish, stew chicken, fresh vegetables, assortment of desserts, and many more choices served with wine) while listening to one of the best upcoming bands of Haiti “AKOUSTICK“. Just Paradise!

Instructor Spotlight: Irina Peschan

By | blog, featured | No Comments

Irina Peschan’s smile and beautiful energy burst into the room even before she steps in. Regardless of the studio, she is able to turn any room into an embracing space. From the moment she introduces herself, you feel safe in her class, a feeling that continues as her class progresses.  Irina teaches from her heart, truly taking the time to include every person in her class and create a community within the hour of Zumba. She has a unique style that emerges from deep within her and permeates every molecule in the room – she infuses it into both her Zumba classes and her Afro Fusion Burn classes. She weaves her personal journey into her choreography and it is compelling to learn from her. She is actually able to create a safe space within a Zumba class in which it is okay to feel open and vulnerable – she sees everyone in a way that makes the class feel like we really are all in it together. Her energy is sweet, encouraging, and supportive and she quite simply is a wonderful teacher. Through her sweet energy, Irina commands a strong presence – her students respect her for her talent, her dedication, and the brilliant sunshine that she radiates. Read More
