Accommodation

You will be accommodated in Chai Garden Ashram. The palapa, a thatched roof structure, native to Belize, rises overhead like a giant umbrella, the leaves are woven like a huge basket which rests on the many supporting poles which radiate from the center post. In Belize, the bay leaf palm is used for round thatch.

This traditional structure, being fractal, is optimal for the best possible flow of energy and vibration for healing and yoga, as fractal energy patterns are most conducive to experiencing bliss. What this means to them is the free expansion of the aura, unfettered and uncaged by the metal and plastic of modern building. This is a key to bliss, the freedom of the NAM to connect with the SAT. SAT being the Supersoul, and NAM being the individual. SAT NAM.

Note: No alcohol, cigarettes, or dogs at the ashram, please.

You can book a tent under the thatch on the canopy level yoga deck, surrounded by the sounds of birds, frogs, and the constant lull of the waterfall. You can also book a semi-private room on the main floor, suitable for a couple or may be shared with two single beds. This room on the main floor has easy access to the shared bathroom which features a mosaic hot and cold shower. There is also an outdoor shower in the Orchid Spa.

For more comfort and privacy, cabanas are available nearby. Single occupancy and double occupancy are available. This can be added on to the basic fee for the retreat, just let Chai Garden Ashram know if you prefer an off-site cabana with private bathroom. The price includes transport to and from the ashram each day.

Program

The day begins with fruit in the morning with the famous Chai tea available at 7:30 a.m. Tea is followed by an 8 a.m. morning call, chanting, and meditation practice. A yoga session from 10 a.m. until noon will follow. Vegan lunch is served at 1 p.m. Healing massage session, sound healing, or jungle prints art workshop are available for an additional fee in the afternoon. A light meal is served in the evening, followed by a kirtan or meditation to close out the day. To add to your retreat, Chai Garden Ashram offers afternoon excursions, workshops, and spa menu.

Evan and Laine are a powerful team for personal development and healing. Offering both Hatha and Kundalini yoga classes and various styles of massage and meditation. They keep things fun and lively and continue to change up the practice. They can easily accommodate various levels of experience, from beginner to advanced in the same session. Yoga sessions are tailored to the participants and they are appraised as they progress.

Retreat location

The natural magic of the waterfalls can be seen looking down from the yoga palapa. The waterfalls are spring fed, falling down limestone formations, creating a highly ionized local environment. This uplifting atmosphere intensifies in the pool itself, the energy of the living water caressing, cleansing, revitalizing, and uplifting you from the skin to the bone. The spiritual vibration is high in this sacred ancient location. This waterfall highlights the natural beauty of Belize.

Just minutes from the town of San Ignacio in the Cayo District of Belize, Chai Garden Ashram, surrounded by jungle, offers a sense of seclusion. Easy access to Mayan ruins and ancient caves, the ashram is in the heart of the Cayo District of Belize, surrounded by jungle, between the ancient sites of Caracol and Xunantunich.
