While a wide variety of people enjoy Deborah Joya's style, it is perhaps most appreciated by those who might feel out of place in most yoga classes or retreats. Deborah is passionate about practices that enhance wellbeing and joy, but everything is optional. You are encouraged to embrace your unique self and tailor your practice and your entire day to what is best for you.

This retreat takes place in two cities of Belize. The first seven days of the retreat will be spent in the beautiful rainforest near San Ignacio and the following four days will be spent on the island of Caye Caulker.

Most mornings you will enjoy a yoga session before breakfast. This morning session is for those who enjoy a greater physical challenge, as it tends to be more active, with practices like Vinyasa flow. The second yoga session is held after breakfast and is focused on self-discovery. There will also be guided meditation, which is intuitive and focused on deepening your connection to your emotional and energetic self.

Afternoons are free for relaxation or optional tours and activities. You may relax at the pool or beach, or explore the rainforest, rivers, caves, ruins, and reef. You can also enjoy time with others who are drawn here for similar reasons. Wonderful, lasting friendships have been formed on Deborah's retreats. Be yourself and, without even trying, you may just find transformation.

One tour to the Mayan ruins is included. During this tour, you will have the chance to practice yoga or meditation at the ruins. Also, Saturday is a travel day to the island, so there will be no tours on that day.

Excursion at Caye Caulker Island

A boat ride and snorkeling trip at the island of Caye Caulker will allow you to enjoy the clear water and variety of wildlife in Belize. Bikes and canoes are provided.

Excursion to the Mayan ruins in San Ignacio

The Mayan ruins invoke wonder, curiosity, and introspection, making them the perfect place to meditate during your visit.

  • Deborah

    Deborah has participated in and assisted many self-development seminars. The Heal Yourself Heal Your World Wellness Event in Apache Junction was an idea formulated in one of her seminars, and she created it with the help of several friends and the city. She received her Yoga Teacher Certification from Vince McCullough’s Pacifica West Institute. She is highly influenced by his elemental style of yoga, which emphasizes the dance of fire, the flow of water, the strength of earth, the breath of air, and the meditation of space. Since then, she has incorporated other yoga styles into her classes.

San Ignacio

The rainforest has a healing presence in so many ways. With the rich foliage, the big green leaves, the colorful birds, the unusual animals, and the wide variety of sounds, the Mayan ruins invoke wonder, curiosity, and introspection. Nearby rivers, caves, and waterfalls are a perfect place to explore and relax.

Caye Caulker

The beach has its own healing qualities, such as the sound of the ocean, the feel of the sand, the birds, and the beauty. The Belizean culture is a draw in and of itself. The people are known to be laid back, creative, fun, loving, and welcoming. You will have the opportunity to enjoy local music, people, and cuisine for your dinners on the island.

    "Deborah has been doing private yoga instruction and guided meditation with me for the past several months. Although I was a bit skeptical at first, she has been able to help me with issues from my war time experiences in Afghanistan, my recent divorce, and my childhood physical abuse. Deborah seems to intuitively and empathically know what the underlying issues are, where to find them, and how to best address them. She has helped me heal from years of bouts of depression and anger, and has helped me find an internal source of peace and contentment. I am deeply grateful for her healing abilities and refer to her as my magnificent yoga instructor because of her unique gifts."

    "I have enjoyed a couple of retreats with Deborah Joya, one in Arizona and one abroad. Having been a student of yoga for many years under the guidance of all kinds of teachers, I have found that Deborah's focus on detail and explanation in asana sequencing and her meditation guidance is surpassed by none of them. Deborah offers both yoga and meditation most days of the retreat, coupled with discussion and activities open to all who choose to participate. I am so looking forward to my next opportunity for a retreat with Deborah."

    "Deborah's Costa Rica retreat was absolutely amazing and one of my most memorable experiences; it was filled with much more than I ever imagined it could be. She tirelessly committed herself to delivering a variety of yoga sessions for participants of different levels, including partner, water, circle, and rejuvenation yoga, not just once, but twice daily! As a beginner to meditation, she taught techniques that helped me to relax and find an escape from the stress of daily living. Wow! I cannot wait to do it again!"
