~in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico
Join us for this one-of-a-kind Zumba Yoga Retreat. Lots of fun with daily Zumba classes! All the health benefits of daily, gentle Yoga classes. Combined with Mexican cultural adventures and natural excursions...
This retreat was inspired by Duncan's enthusiastic students...when he goes to Mexico, many people comment they really miss his Zumba and Yoga classes! This Mexico Zumba Yoga retreat gives you the chance to enjoy his popular classes and escape the cold of winter!
World dance-inspired fitness classes, combining dance styles such as Latin dances--like Salsa, Merengue and Reggaeton, with Tango, Belly Dance, African, Broadway and Hip-Hop. Lovingly curated music and rhythms from around the world that make you want to boogie!
Zumba is not about
being perfect, or performing. It's about having fun and getting
exercise! Some classes will be more active, other classes will help you
break down the choreography and better understand the steps.

A special discounted rate has been negotiated for our group. There are slight variations in pricing, depending on the room. Last year, the special discount rate was about $130USD per room per night. You book and pay for the accommodation directly with the hotel.
I have made a special arrangement with the hotel to hold rooms for our retreat dates. Though the hotel will only hold the rooms for our retreat until mid-June. Once I receive your retreat deposit, I will send you more info on directions for booking and receiving the special rate.
Flight pricing will vary depending on origin, times, connections, etc. The closest airport is San Jose del Cabo International Airport, near Los Cabos in Baja, Mexico. As many of you will be coming from Kelowna, BC, the most convenient return flights would be about $900CAD--if you book early, many months in advance! If you wait till a few months before, the flight costs often double! You book and pay for flights directly with the airline. Once I receive your retreat deposit, I will send you more info: recommended airline, recommended flights, times, etc.

A Retreat Program deposit of $500 CAD is required to reserve your spot (non-refundable, however if rescheduling becomes necessary due to Covid, deposit will be transferable to a later date). Retreat Program Deposits are due by June 30, 2022. Once I receive your deposit, I will send you more information about the hotel and flight bookings. The sooner you make your deposit, the better your choice of hotel rooms and also, you will be able to choose from the best route/lower price air tickets! In other words, the sooner you make your deposit, the better for everyone!
This retreat was inspired by Duncan's enthusiastic students who miss his classes when he goes to Mexico. A lot of research, planning and love has gone into making this the most fun, beautiful, convenient, safe, reasonably-priced, culturally rich and unique experience possible.
