The retreat starts on December 12 and ends on the 16 (5 days, 4 nights). The originality and uniqueness of Yoga & Sea Retreat is that you will practice different types of yoga (Kundalini, Hatha and Nidra) and link these practices with topics and activities related to the sea and the environment. All this on a private island only for you! The purpose of this is not only to feel and strengthen your inner awareness and peace, but also to to feel and connect with the environmental one, which we are part of.
You just have to be in Belize city on December 12 in the morning.The retreat includes the pick-up from the airport (whatever day you decide to arrive) and the trip to the island on a boat (in the morning of December 12th). On December 16 in the morning the retreat will take you back to the airport or your hotel in Belize city.
During these 5 days on the island we will open the day with Kundalini Yoga (Aquarian Sadhana) and close it with Yoga Nidra. In between, we will practice some Hatha Yoga and/or Kundalini Yoga, which includes pranayamas, asanas, mudras, mantras, bandhas and meditations. In parallel you will learn more about aquatic life and how to identify some species, you will then put your knowledge into practice through a snorkel tour to the barrier reef. We will also talk and meditate on environmental consciousness and how to apply it on our everyday life. We will play games, watch related movies, have free time to sun bathe, kayak, nap, receive therapies (by appointment), etc.
