Each yoga retreat at Balancé includes a “Point-Man”. The point-man is an ambassador that helps the retreat participants better enjoy their stay throughout the week. The point man regularly checks in with each guest to determine if there is an unmet need, he provides recommendations for activities, help procuring side activities, massages, day trips, or anything of interest not originally reserved in the yoga retreat package. The point-man has one underpinning mission: Do whatever it takes to ensure you have an unforgettable yoga retreat!

Adrian Wigston a.k.a. “Pelo de Tusa” :

Adrian founded Sunzal Surf Company in 2005 and later Balancé Yoga Center in 2013. Adrian has spent 12 years developing a wealth of knowledge on El Salvador’s coastline and all it has to offer. Adrian comes from a family of watermen and when he isn’t chasing waves in El Salvador he’s probably whitewater kayaking in Colorado, Washington, or Idaho. Adrian will also join you in the yoga classroom. He’s maintained a regular yoga practice for 13 years and loves nothing more than the combo of surfing & yoga.

Amilcar Argueta a.k.a. “Gorilla”:

Amilcar has worked with us since 2006 back when we used to manage the Sunzal Surf Shop in Playa El Tunco. What we didn’t know then was how much Amilcar would grow to become a favorite local connection to our clients over the years. I can’t tell you how many raving reviews I’ve seen for his service and quality attention to our customers. Amilcar embodies the term “point-man” in every way. His smile and fun personality symbolize the way to the way we do business.
