Jessie Wigh, co-founder of Belize Yoga Retreats, founder of RandOM Yoga/Namaste Yoga Studio in Caye Caulker, Belize, certified yoga instructor since 2007
Jessie's yoga-centric life began when she and her husband moved to Belize in 2008 to begin offering yoga retreats in the gorgeous Central American country. It was there she also opened her by-donation studio, where she taught 6 days a week for 15 years until recently returning back to the US (her oldest child was ready for high school). Her classes are “island-paced” vinyasa…casual, relaxed, and designed to bring emphasis to the world around you. Jessie truly feels like she is living the dream by sharing yoga and seeing how it can change the lives of retreat students. Jessie currently leads retreats in Belize, Italy and the Azores.
Jessie’s retreats are spiritual, healing, and just plain fun. Having taught almost exclusively outdoors, she finds that connection to environment helps to cultivate connection within. Jessie’s retreats are very much about the WHOLE body (physical, mental, spiritual, emotional). With a focus on the chakras, each day of the retreat will focus on a different area of the body and mind. The nature of travel–changing one’s physical location–sets the stage perfectly for beginning the bigger journey.
