Unplug with Jessica and Jeff in this soul-enriching yoga retreat in Belize’s first yoga resort on the smallest and most sacred island of Belize, Ambergris Caye. Through powerful ritual and sadhana with soothing sound healings to accompany your yoga and meditation practice, this retreat is sure to be a week you will never forget. During this retreat, you will enjoy two yoga classes a day, meditation and pranayama sessions, and regular nutrition and wellness workshops in pure landscapes of oceans, palm trees, and sacred ruins.
You will be accommodated within the Maya-inspired village of seven cabanas mindfully positioned by the sea at Ak'bol Yoga Retreat and Eco Resort.
Maya is the power by which the universe becomes manifest. It is how people view the breathtaking, phenomenal world in which people live. Anamaya is that which is not afflicted by inner and outer suffering or karma. You will learn how to experience life from a space of non-attachment by remembering what really matters and who you really are. You will rediscover your innate wisdom while taking time for you in this paradise location.
During this retreat, you will practice with the energy of the sea beneath you and after class, you can plunge into the sea or in the lagoon-inspired freshwater pool or even have discussion groups within a private palapa on the beach. Organized extra activities can be available as the sea is your playground. You can engage yourself in diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, or windsurfing, visit Maya ruins, or relax in a hammock and listen to the birds. You can also get through the book you have been wanting to read, write in your journal, and get a massage treatment.

Jeff brings a light-hearted, authentic, and hands-on approach when teaching yoga to the students. Yoga became an integral part of his life 15 years ago. He studied and practiced many forms of yoga including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Hatha, Vinyasa, Bikram, and Sadhana yoga. In 2003, he practices yoga along with many philosophical studies and ultimately extended solitude in the Patagonia Mountains lead to a metaphysical experience. These insights into enlightenment lead him to seek a life of teaching and blissful existence.
