Each villa, nestled atop the cliffs in Discovery Bay, offers its own unique intimate setting and provides the ultimate vacation experience for all guests. Complete privacy, luxurious accommodations, and the most attentive and impeccable service are the highlights of this unique sanctuary.

Afia Walking Tree Women Of Color Yoga Retreat in Jamaica Program

On this yoga retreat, you will have daily African diasporic drum, song, dance, writing, and yoga sessions. You will also enjoy other fun activities such as rituals, heart circles, and ancestral healing.

This retreat is for women of color only. With the recent attacks of people of color, particularly black women and men, it is essential to host healing journeys in sacred spaces as womb spaces where you are allowed for purification, wailing, decompression, and as much soulful release from post-traumatic slave, stress, and societal syndromes.

You will explore and remember our ancestral threads from this land celebrating ourselves in a sweet caldron of loving compassion. We are offering partial scholarships for women of color.

Included excursions

On this yoga retreat, you will have field trips to Stush in the Bush, Dunn’s River Falls, and local attractions in Jamaica.

This retreat will take place in Discovery Bay, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica.
