Yoga: it’s a practice that has such a positive impact on your life, on so many levels. And perhaps, vacation means full flexibility of your schedule to take advantage of extra time on the mat. You may venture to Ambergris Caye at one point or another on your Belize vacation, and you don’t need to stop your yoga practice either. With more and more wellness packages popping up in resorts and healthy cafes along the way, the Belize island is increasingly catering to those seeking total relaxation and a connection to something deeper. If yoga is one of the reasons you want to visit Belize, below are five places to try a yoga class and flow while visiting San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
Two miles south of the island’s town of San Pedro is Victoria House, a luxurious beach resort offering yoga classes three times per week. The resort also has the option to book private sessions for groups and welcomes all levels. For a deeper experience, participants can enroll in a week-long wellness retreat that comprises yoga classes and spa services.
Located 3.5 miles north of San Pedro Town, yoga classes at Las Terrazas take place on a terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the second largest barrier reef in the world. They usually start at 9:30 am and last for one hour. Everyone is welcome, not only guests of the resort. Those interested can check for information at the resort’s front desk.

Right in town yoga classes at this beautiful beach resort takes place in different areas like the beach, under the palapa under the deck, or between Ramon’s jungle-themed manicured grounds. Classes are also open to anyone and interested persons should check with the front desk ten minutes before the yoga session. Additionally, classes can either be taken from 9:30 am or 4 am lasting one hour.
Found north of town just before Grand Caribe, Ak’bol Yoga Retreat & Eco Resort focuses a lot on yoga practices. Guests can arrange scheduled daily yoga classes and retreats throughout the year. For drop-ins, yoga takes place under a quiet palapa at the end of the pier where class usually starts at 9 am. After, grab breakfast: Ak’bol counts on its organic garden for providing fresh fruits and vegetables to its restaurant and juice bar.
