The Full Story

Unplug and unlock "The Power of Bliss" in the lush jungles of Western Belize! Immerse yourself in the wisdom of Maya culture, and let daily yoga ignite your inner bliss. This is your chance to unwind, explore, and renew in a paradise unlike any other. Wake up to the symphony of nature, relish the flavors of Belizean cuisine, and find inner harmony. Your path to bliss begins here.

Your Ananda Shakti Adventure includes:

  • Seven Nights Lodging (Accommodations and pricing vary. Scroll on down for the skinny on that.)

  • Transportation to and from Belize International Airport. (The drive is about 1.5 hours)

  • Incredible Daily Yoga Classes in the stunning outdoor pavilion with Lauren or Kate. (One or two per day depending upon the itinerary.)

  • Most Meals

  • Authentic Mayan Healing Ceremony with traditional Belizean curandera Thelma Waight.

  • A day long adventure to Actun Tunichil Muknal, the Mayan Underworld!

  • A tour of our Medicinal Plant Trail with don René, our local village elder.

  • Full Moon Drum Circle.

  • And So. Much. More: Optional adventures include: a Belizean Cooking Class, a trip to the local Iguana Rescue Center, a Chocolate Tasting Tour, Tubing down the River, tours of local Mayan Ruins, shopping like the locals at the farmer’s market, or just claiming one of our numerous hammocks for the afternoon!

Your Belizean Home: Balance Point Wellness is a unique and wondrous place. Located in the village of Bullet Tree Falls in Western Belize, BPW boasts a six hundred square foot open air yoga pavilion on a breezy hilltop, guest houses, dining, 14 acres of trails rife with medicinal plants and cool wildlife, and a jungle spa where you can indulge in wonderful, world class body work or authentic Mayan healing rituals, including Maya abdominal massage and spiritual bathing. Envisioned and built by owner Kate Devine, BPW is a labor of love and a place for you to rejuvenate your entire Self.

Your Retreat Leaders: Kate and I (Lauren) have been soul sisters for many years and have a magical history! Already friends through the yoga scene in Belize (I had been leading retreats there since 2006), we, unbeknownst to each other at the time, bought adjoining properties in Bullet Tree in 2008. Recognizing that this was much more than a coincidence, we have been building the dream of offering unique and powerful experiences for yogis and travelers alike. We are thrilled to welcome you into our dream come true!
