About Belize Yoga


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 studio-based yoga. 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 continually travel to all areas  of Belize, handpicking the most spectacular spots to practice yoga,  selecting the best tours and guides they can find, and advising  resorts on the building of yoga decks. After several years and hundreds of thrilled yogis, the Wighs began adding European destinations--currently offering select retreats to Italy and Azores (Portugal). The result is a selection of  spectacular yoga retreats. Come experience our yoga retreats. We think you  will be inspired.

 When not on a Belize Yoga retreat, Jessie teaches yoga six days at week  at her by-donation studio in Caye Caulker, Belize. She has written three  children's books about Belize: Caye Boy: Barefoot Adventures of an Island Child, Caye Boy and Kite Day, and Caye Boy Visits the Jungle.

On  retreat, Jessie's goal is always to keep the energy of the group smooth  and relaxed and blissful. In the office, Jessie oversees all student  correspondence, design and marketing.

 A licensed Belize tour guide, Brad spends as much time as possible  wearing a mask and snorkel. When out of the water, he enjoys birding,  soccer and stand-up-paddleboard yoga (does that count as "out of the  water"?). 

On Belize Yoga retreats he is likely to host hermit crab races and can help you track down tarantulas...if that is your thing. 

In the office, Brad oversees all of Belize Yoga's instructor communication, logistics, resort contacts and finances.
