Yoga instructor Lauren Rudick knows a thing or two about planning yoga retreats, a retreat guru who honed her skills over time, taken advantage of this trend to maximize her business and made a living doing what she loves. Lauren’s retreats can cost $3,000 to organize–and that doesn’t include the profit she makes for all of her hard work.
As an alternative to a pricey U.S. getaway, escape to Belize for the yoga retreat of a lifetime – all you need is your yoga mat, they’ll take care of everything else!
The Private and intimate resort offers sunrise vinyasas, wave-assisted meditation and days spent hiking, swimming, kayaking or simply saluting the sun.
Yoga getaways at this exotic location is a great way to refresh and rejuvenate and it’s become so popular, management has built an intimate yoga deck facing the Caribbean Sea for blissful experiences that surpass ordinary venues for beauty and tranquility. The resort’s remote and private location also makes for one of the world’s most tranquil settings for yoga.
About Yok Ha Island Resort
This slice of paradise occupies a corner of the 3-acre Waterfoot Caye located within a chain of islands that is part of the Belize Barrier Reef system. There are only 5 brightly-colored and well-appointed beach cabanas on the property, allowing for an intimate and personalized experience.
You can rent the entire island for your yoga retreat as the island offers comfortable accommodations for up 24 guests, with a maximum of 30. At a group package rate, your stay includes all accommodations, meals and boat transport to and from the island for as low as US $150 per person.
When not exploring your inner yogi, lounge on our beach, kayak and snorkel around the island or to nearby islands, or have a tropical drink at our over-water Restaurant & Bar “Chief’s Place.”
Our Chefs will incorporate true Belizean Love into every dish and will be happy to tailor meals to you and your posse’s dietary preferences and restrictions.
Side trips and flight fares and relaxation – What’s not to love?
Getting to Belize has become a breeze thanks to major airlines servicing the nation and if you leave from a southern U.S. city, it may only take a little over two hours to reach Belize. Shuttles from the international airport to Dangriga are relatively inexpensive and add just minutes to the journey.
For those seeking adventure, excursions to the nation’s jaguar preserve, ancient Maya ruins, zip-lining, jungle treks or scuba diving and snorkeling (there’s a dive shop on-site) can be arranged, so you can customize your retreat accordingly. That stated, if all your crew wants to do is relax, recharge and renew via as many yoga sessions as time allows, you couldn’t find a better island destination to make that happen.
