The Instructors

Shayna Hasson:
I am so excited to welcome you to my home away from home, Caye Caulker, Belize. This trip will mark my fifth time on this magical island and I cannot not wait to share it with all of you!

Yoga has always been an accessible way for me to add mindfulness to my travel and I’ve been sharing this with people through my yoga retreats since 2016.

My style is simple, slow, and approachable for any person especially beginners to yoga. Enjoy daily classes with me on a rooftop with 360 degree views of the Caribbean Sea.

Travel is a time to push ourselves outside our comfort zones which is the perfect space to find your authentic self. Join our amazing community and make memories and friendships to last a lifetime.

Ana Maria Quintero:
What I love about yoga is that you can take and practice it anywhere you go. You don’t need fancy yoga clothes or an expensive mat to do yoga. You don’t even need to be “good” at yoga because anybody can do yoga.

My philosophy as a yoga instructor is that yoga is for anyone, every-body, everywhere. As a teacher I have found creative ways to offer yoga to those around me: virtually, at parks, on rooftops, in people’s backyards, at parties, particularly during and after the pandemic when people were finding themselves needing outlets to stretch and be mindful.

I have taught people of all abilities, from beginners to seasoned yogis, young and old. I believe this is where I have thrived the most as a yoga instructor; through the unconventional nature of being able to adjust and be flexible (pun intended). This is why I am excited to lead you through this journey in Caye Caulker to integrate yoga into our travel experiences, whether it's starting our day with a mindful meditation or just soaking in the crystal-clear waters. I invite you to let go of any preconceived notions that yoga has to be a certain way and celebrate the freedom, travel, and enriching adventure that is yoga.

The Yoga

Practicing yoga regularly can be challenging with a busy schedule. Taking yourself away from the stresses of daily life will allow you more time & freedom to see the positive effects of Yoga.

With ample free time & daily yoga classes, you will build a healthy habit and the foundations for a fantastic yoga practice that you can take home with you and continue to explore.

On this retreat, you will enjoy 1-2 yoga classes daily. We will explore movements that promote healthy bodies as well as quiet time for meditation and healing of the mind. All classes will be fit for all levels, beginners are welcome and encouraged!

YES! We absolutely welcome those who have never tried yoga before!

Most of our yoga sessions will be on the partially shaded rooftop of the nirvana suite. Some of our yoga will also be poolside and beachfront!

The Excursions

Two unbelievable excursions are included in this amazing retreat:

Half Day Reef Snorkeling:

Swim with Caye Caulker’s most spectacular marine life.

On this tour you will discover the wonder of Belize’s marine ecosystem. Your trip will focus on three different snorkeling locations along the reef that runs parallel to the island of Caye Caulker. In this natural haven for thriving sea life you will be surrounded by the laid-back nature of local nurse sharks, dancing coral beds, and an array of colorful fish.

Caye Caulker South Channel, Shark Ray Alley, and the Swash are popular local destinations for snorkeling. Our experienced guides will help you discover many different marine species such as parrotfish, lobsters, angelfish, tarpon, eagle rays, and many more. We’re here to answer questions, point out sea wildlife, and make sure you get the most out of your journey into the underwater world.

This tour is available for all snorkeling levels of experience from beginner to advanced. The guides accompany you in the water to point out fish and other marine life while making this one of the greatest experiences of your life.

Our spacious catamarans are equipped with sun and shade areas, washrooms, changing areas, and freshwater rinsing stations as you emerge from the ocean.

Sunset Dinner Cruise:

Enjoy an exclusive dining experience while cruising the Caribbean waters.

Watch the sun leisurely fall from the sky as you enjoy a locally prepared dinner from the comfort of a luxurious catamaran.

On our catamarans, you’ll be on the expansive deck and free to move about to capture the best sunset view or dance the daylight away. From the scenery to the wildlife, great photo opportunities surround you. Experience the thrill as the wind fills the sails and you glide along the Caribbean sea and await the sunset celebration.

We have many seating options both in and out of the sun. Choose a plush bean bag on the deck, dining table in the salon, or lounge area near the captain’s helm.
