Alicia Dugar, E-RYT 200, of Afroyoga
Class with Alicia centers around listening to the wisdom of your body. Breath-focused movement is encouraged as you practice mindfulness and self-care. You are invited to join in an engaging session that will leave you feeling relaxed and ready for whatever.
Alicia’s yoga journey started with a Lupus diagnosis in 2009, immediately following her freshman year at Rice University. Life became a juggling routine: back and forth between body aches, doctors visits and prescription medications. Then, Alicia finally found yoga, after searching and hoping for a way to feel good in her body.
Since starting a daily yoga practice, she has found relief from joint pains and stiffness. Being able to understand her body for the first time inspired Alicia to encourage others to do the same. Naturally, she became a yoga teacher! She enjoys leading group classes and especially loves private sessions that allow her to share personal experiences in self healing.
Yoga retreats are not just a hobby for Alicia. She has always loved to take adventures in amazing locations around the world, even since childhood. Interestingly, she has discovered that a yoga retreat caters to those individuals who want to do more than a regular vacation. Participants come from all age groups and lifestyles because they desire to connect and explore.

Your own private island.
Your Island Adventure retreat is at the fantastic Hatchet Caye. Each double occupancy guestroom has a spacious porch with gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. The rooms feature Belizean hardwoods and local detailing.
Set on its own private island, while on Hatchet Caye you will feel like a castaway–a happy, catered-to castaway.
All meals are included, beginning with dinner on arrival day. Belizean food is always deliciously homemade, and is simple and unfussy. All produce is locally grown, and while in the mountains, much is organically grown on-site at the lodge. Vegetarian and vegan options can be accommodated
Meals at Hatchet Caye are casual gourmet. Breakfast might be fresh tropical fruits, followed by homemade tortillas, eggs and beans. Lunch options include freshly-caught lionfish and plantain fries. Dinner might be garden salad, creamy shrimp and basil pasta, and strawberry margarita pie.
Your meal package includes water served with meals and juice, coffee and tea at breakfast. Drinking water is provided to you free of charge. Additional alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages may be purchased.

Snorkeling the Western Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef–Belize’s barrier reef is like a living art gallery. Living among the many beautiful corals are a myriad of tropical fish–Blue Tang, Angelfish, Butterfly Fish, Parrot Fish…there are simply too many to name. Snorkelers often see elusive beauties such as spotted eagle rays, sea turtles and the magnificent Queen Triggerfish.
