Belize Yoga was created by Jessie and Brad Wigh, Americans who reside in Belize. They first came to Belize in 2003 and immediately fell in love with the country--the friendly people, the gorgeous scenery and the blue, blue water. The Wighs soon realized that yoga in Belize was different than the studio-based yoga back in the States. Feeling the warm tropical breeze, hearing the waves and birds, seeing the sun come up over the mountains--all these elements brought a deeper meaning to their practice and a feeling of connectivity to the world. They decided that it wasn't an experience they should keep to themselves.
The Wighs became Belizean residents in 2008, and have had three sons in Belize. They have spent the past eight years traveling to all areas of Belize, handpicking the most spectacular spots to practice yoga, selecting the best tours and guides they could find, and advising resorts on the building of yoga decks. The result is a selection of spectacular yoga retreats. Come experience yoga in Belize. We think you will be inspired.
On Belize Yoga retreats he is likely to host hermit crab races and can help you track down tarantulas...if that is your thing.
