7th Annual Belize Yoga & Meditation Vacation with Kai Om
Escape winter, relax, and nourish body, mind and spirit at the beautiful, peaceful Ak'bol Yoga Retreat Center and Eco resort on the tropical island of Ambergris Caye.
Belize (the former British Honduras) is located in Central America and is about five hours from Chicago via plane. English is commonly spoken, and the dollar is widely accepted. The peaceful cultural melting pot of Belize is home to unspoiled beaches and jungles as well as the second largest barrier reef in the world.
We will practice yoga twice a day on an exquisitely handcrafted, open-air studio, surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. The morning practice is more active, while the afternoons will be more relaxing and meditative. Our focus will be the eight limbs of yoga - a comprehensive system that includes postures, breathing, chanting and meditation, and is designed to quiet the mind so that we can experience the peace and bliss that is our birthright. Our primary practice will be Dharma Yoga, a complete practice (not just asana) which adapts well to all levels (even raw beginners). Variations will be given so that all levels feel comfortable / challenged. This retreat is suitable for all levels.
Our comfortable accommodations include eco-chic locally-crafted cabanas just steps from the sea, and affordable, Maya-inspired Village Rooms next to a beautiful lagoon. Our meals will be fresh, locally-sourced ayurvedic (healing) vegetarian cuisine that satisfies all six tastes and received rave reviews on previous trips – even from meat eaters. (Please note that on Thursday night you will be free to stay on the grounds, take an excursion, or head into town for dinner).
Between classes, you may arrange a snorkeling trip (the reef is a 20-minute boat ride away), a massage, a sailboat ride, diving trips, parasailing, cave tubing, kite surfing, excursions to Mayan ruins, a bike or boat trip to town, and more. Or you may simply stay on Ak’bol’s peaceful, healing grounds - which include a pool, three yoga studios, hammocks, many bird species, and a large beachfront
Cabanas tend to sell out and are available first-come, first-served. Please sign up early. A $500 deposit reserves your spot!
