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
