For a while now the art of yoga has been finding its way into Belizean society; so much so that Belize is becoming a top yogi destination. This jewel offers everything you are looking for in a yoga retreat. You expect perfect lighting and calming music to set the tone, so what better than the natural environment around you to offer just that? From Northern to Southern Belize, you can find a yoga retreat that is tailor-made for you.
Ray Caye is a private island located in Southern Belize; they offer a couple of packages to host yoga retreats throughout the year. Each of these retreats is hosted by various yoga instructors that plan the retreat. Guests are able to have their own space on the island, doing yoga on the beach or on the pier overlooking the beautiful ocean.
In Corozal, we have Serenity Retreats Belize which is dedicated to giving guests a very unique experience. This place is known as ‘bird’s aisle’ because of the various species of birds that stop by. Each guest has a private cabana, to indulge in some much-needed me-time, and take a break from the bustle of everyday life. These retreats are very small and allow a maximum of only 8 guests. Serenity Retreats is also a complete vegan resort that offers guests unlimited vegan meals all day.
Om Shanti Belize is a well-known yoga centre in Belize City that gives the highest quality in yoga instruction. They offer many healing workshops, retreats, and community outreach. There are many different classes to choose from, in different yoga styles. They also teach mindfulness and do 200/300 hour certification courses for those who want to learn.
Where Else Can You Practice Yoga?
Almost every resort in Belize offers classes for yoga, and even if they don’t, I guarantee you can find a nearby yoga studio. Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker have a number of different yoga studios/cafes for you to enjoy during your stay. There are also yoga retreats at two of Belize’s World Heritage Sites – Half Moon Caye and Southwest Caye.
If you are a yoga enthusiast or you’re hoping to start, then what better way to do so than in a beautiful place? Whether on the beach, over the Caribbean Sea, near the jungle or wherever you choose; Belize is the perfect destination for you to reconnect with your mind, body, and soul.
