About the Retreat
Rest, Radiance & Ritual Retreat: Yoga, Mindfulness & Conscious Connection to Nature
Hosted by Internationally celebrated yoga and meditation teacher, Christy McKenzie
Join Christy for a perfect opportunity to gift ourselves graciously, ahead of the holiday season, by connecting to nature, savoring nourishing self-care practices and tapping into the potency of simple, ancient, earth-based rituals. In our modern and busy lives, with very little time for true inward-turning and rejuvenation, the natural richness and incomparable serenity that Belize offers is a rare and special treat beckoning to our souls with whispers of calm, slowness, health and presence. Christy will present the extraordinary natural landscape of Placencia, Belize as a perfect portal to restoring and bringing more radiance to our minds, bodies and energy levels. After 20 years of teaching yoga, philosophy, meditation and mindfulness, Christy has an uncanny ability to take people deep into their innermost awareness, with expert guidance and carefully crafted practices. As a lifelong student of mystical traditions, she'll invite us to take part in simple rituals of nature connection meant to infuse us with long-forgotten reverence of earth's wisdom, deliver us right into the healing power of gratitude, and help call us back to our most essential states of peace, joy, and freedom. Daily yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices will be balanced sweetly by plenty of free time to luxuriate in the beautiful surroundings in any way that feels right. Spa treatments, lounging in ocean front hammocks or sitting on our personal beach front porches, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, catching up on rest or a good read, walking the long private beach, biking, or joining an excursion to the jungle or the barrier reef, are only some of the activities you may choose to immerse yourself in. The rhythm of Belize is so easy and inviting that it creates a most ideal framework for this kind of restorative and reinvigorating retreat. Please join us for this 4-night pop over in paradise, and feel free to extend your trip by a few nights if that suits.
