JQ WILLIAMSJQ Williams is a warm and energetic teacher. Expect to learn a lot about anatomy and body mechanics under her teaching while she takes you on a journey of free expression through body and spirit. She is a certified 500 E RYT, who owns a studio in Saint Paul Minnesota and travels teaching nation-wide.
“Yoga came to me after I severely injured my back pole vaulting. In truth, my practice was more or less just stretching at first, but after a soundbath induced my first meditative state, I knew I had stumbled on something much bigger than healing a physical wound. My goal as a teacher is to help you take ownership over your body, and your life. My classes are always set to build on one another leaving you with a trail of learning connecting where you were to where you have arrived. Life is always a journey, and I’m so honored to be part of my students’ paths.”
Zoe Wirth is a sincere and spirited yoga teacher based in Los Angeles, originally from Florida, and in her heart calls Miami Beach her home. Integrating joy into yoga practice is her main focus. After working for years in the fast-paced fashion industry as a stylist, Zoe found peace through yoga, eventually making the shift into full time yogi after completing her RYT at White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara California.
With a naturally curious mind, Zoe is an eager student, consistently sharing new things she’s gathered along the way. She is known for integrating humor into her class, while holding a meditative space where students can connect to their physical bodies from an internal experience. “What I love the most about yoga is that it’s boundless, no real goal or end game, this notion takes a lot of the pressure off, finding fun and freedom in practice; I take my classes to a place where if you fall, you fall with a smile-but watch your teeth.”
Our charming, chic hotel and yoga retreat is located on a quiet, serene beach in Playa Troncones, thirty minutes up the coast from Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Restore in a gorgeous setting with wellness classes, yoga by the sea, meditation, qigong and dance classes. Rejuvenate with our offering of spa treatments and healing arts. Dine on mouth-watering, healthy gourmet cuisine. Take in the local adventures such as sunset horseback riding, eco tours, hikes to waterfalls, kayaking, surf-yoga excursions, surf lessons, shopping in our boutique, the village and more.

YOUR BOUTIQUE BUNGALOW
Present Moment is the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Authenticity was imperative in the construction of every inch of this resort. Thus, all bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400 count cotton bedding and a canopy of white linen.
With 5 deluxe bungalows and 3 family bungalows, somewhat blurring the lines between the indoors and out, with its amazing vantage points to the sea, gardens and pool, your accommodation will be the perfect place to rest yourself after a full day of yoga and surf at Present Moment. Just a 30 second walk the beach, let the sounds of the ocean lure you to sleep each night.
With 3 air conditioned suites, for those seeking a little more similarity to the comforts of home. Centrally located, you will be just steps away from the beach, amazing yoga classes, massage, and fine dining. If you enjoy strolling the shore at sunrise, these stunning bungalows will have you on your way in no time. Hand-crafted and beautifully appointed, a true home away from home.
ABOUT TRONCONES & GETTING THERE
At the heart of charming Troncones Beach, nestled between the lush mountains of the Sierra Madre and the sparkling Mexican Riviera, Present Moment Retreat combines the ambience of nature’s grandeur with personally challenging mind-body work, set in harmony on beautifully-landscaped tropical grounds.
Troncones Beach is a small, recently-developed community situated on some 3 miles of pristine Pacific beach – a strand of white sand punctuated by occasional rock outcroppings often harboring tidepools teeming with fascinating saltwater life. The charming village is home to a small school, a public library (donated by generous local residents for education of the village’s children), a church, several dry goods outlets and a few other small provisioning services for essential items. All of these are couched within a traditional and tropical Mexican ambience.
You can fly into Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, the airport is located only 20 miles north and an easy 45-minute drive. The international airport is serviced by a number of International airlines including Alaska Airlines, Continental, American, America West, Frontier Airlines, Mexicana and Aeromexico. Troncones Beach is highly connected, yet still a world apart. Its proximity to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo affords you a full choice of shopping conveniences and recreational possibilities, all just a short distance from your world-class yoga retreat and resort. We can assist you with booking all flights and airport transportation. We recommend arriving by mid-day on the 12th or arriving a day early if you want to explore the town and get settled in!
