Benefits of a small group:
You become an integral part of the group and will benefit from a personal, memorable experience! Tailor your yoga practice, centre with guided meditation, and gain from individualized yoga asana instruction.
Free time activities:
Head to the beach – float or snorkel in the salty Caribbean Ocean. Read, “lime”(hang out) with the group or villagers, hike through tropical forests, listen to birds, or simply breathe the fresh air. Plenty time to enjoy solitude!
Tours/activities available at an extra cost include:
Island tours, bird watching, fishing trips, forest tours, scuba diving.
Where is the retreat held:
Northeastern Tobago – a recently declared UNESCO biosphere reserve. Our destination takes us off the beaten path to the most picturesque and pristine of Tobago villages. The quaint fishing village overlooks the deep blue Man O’ War bay, isolated by mountains and a narrow winding road. Photos
Are alcoholic beverages included:
Alcohol is not included in the retreat but you can purchase at duty-free, the grocery store or some smaller shops in the village.
How do I know which flight to book:
Depending on which dates you’d like to attend, I will provide information on which flights to book from YYZ-POS and from POS-TAB. The intention is for the group to travel on the same flights. This saves you extra costs and time. If you’d like to book the 1-bedroom cottage before or after the retreat, let me know in advance.
OUR WOODEN VILLA
Home base is a comfortable, insect-proof, wooden villa surrounded by acres of vegetation. Accommodation is shared with privacy screens. The lower level accommodates two persons – ideal for a couple. There is no ac or swimming pool but there are windows, plenty fresh air, fans, and the ocean!
Nestled into an isolated cliffside, our eco-friendly villa offers panoramic views of the entire village, the hilly rainforest, and the Caribbean Ocean.
Eco-conscious efforts involve sustainable practices (design & materials, water & energy conservation, waste reduction, etc.).
Plenty of wildlife in the garden to catch your attention, including agoutis, parrots, iguanas, peacocks, and a variety of singing birds. We are within walking distance to a handful of small shops, restaurants, freshwater springs, and Tobago’s best beaches!
Classes are for everyone, including those without experience. This week is an ideal opportunity to nourish, recharge, and heal body, mind, and spirit.
The cuisine of Trinidad and Tobago reflects its cultural diversity – creative, eclectic, and mouth-watering! A local cook will prepare delicious meals using quality, local ingredients. The menu caters to vegans, vegetarians, and pescatarians.
