A Caribbean yoga retreat in sunny Barbados might be just what you need!
You will ease into the experience even if this is your first exposure to yoga and meditation.
Wondering what you might experience there?
You’ll rejuvenate and connect with your inner peace and joy. It’s your chance to slow down and unwind. Soak up the island’s warmth, breathtaking landscapes and seaside scenery. Also the green spaces, sandy beaches, and ocean breezes will soothe.
What are the daily activities?
Every day you can practice a new relaxation technique. You can explore hatha yoga exercises tailor-made for you. Equally important are the exercises to undo the tension that contribute to stiffness or pain. In the end, you’ll return with the beauty of these skills and more.
Care to share your heart’s desire?
Let us know what you want to experience during this week. You may wish to try mini meditations or periods of silence. Then again your hope may be for more flexibility. Or to spend time visualizing, or creating affirmations. Whatever it is, together we can create a plan. If you wish, bring color pencils to play in your journal.
Topics for discussion:
(1) action with compassion.
(2) developing intuition, and
(3) being at peace with emotions.

Barbados is a coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity long ago. On the West Coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. While coral reefs edge the shoreline and provide excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. Along the East Coast a strong and constant trade winds blows, and waves pound against a rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds give Barbados a mild and pleasant tropical climate.
When you visit, you will see Barbados is mostly a flat with excellent beaches. There are some rolling hills and many deep ridges and gullies. Furthermore, you will find an interesting distribution of flora and fauna. Within the Barbados coral core there are many caves and underground pools.
Barbados has lots of art, activities, night life, music, and history. And some of the best restaurants to be found anywhere. But what makes Barbados even more special, is the people. It’s also the reason so many visitors keep returning to the island.
Barbadians, called Bajans, are warm and friendly. And they are always ready to greet you with a sincere smile. You will feel it’s your home. You will want to come back again and again to Barbados. It’s a unique Caribbean paradise. Surprisingly sophisticated, it’s also friendly, fun and always naturally charming!
