6 Days Dynamic Flow: Where Yoga Meets Martial Arts Yoga Retreat in Treasure Beach, Jamaica

Calabash House, Calabash Bay, Treasure Beach, Saint Elizabeth Parish, Jamaica

Yoga and Martial Arts Retreat in Jamaica

Step out of your room directly onto the white sands of Treasure Beach for six days and five nights of conscious vibes and Caribbean bliss. From Reggae sounds and new friends to the solitude of a quiet beach, Jamaica’s south coast will slow you down and open your heart as you challenge your mind-body practice with an exploration of the interconnections between yoga and martial arts. The yoga philosophy of ‘ahimsa’ and the cultivation of mindful movement will be your gateway into Aikido, the Japanese martial art of “harmony with universal energy.” Classes taught by Arielle Herman and Patrick Gaucher. No martial arts experience is necessary!

This retreat is held on the south coast of Jamaica in Treasure beach. This safe, walkable fishing community defines joyful Jamaican hospitality. The area is hopping with intimate restaurants, shops, and music venues as well as expansive stretches of beach where you can wander in solitude.

We will be staying at Calabash House & Cottages, a beachfront villa nestled within lush hummingbird filled gardens. Amongst this natural beauty is a seaside gazebo with hammocks swaying in tune with the waves.

Meals will be held on the spacious veranda overlooking the Caribbean.

Classes will be held across the street from our lodgings at Breds Treasure Beach Sports Park. Breds is a community organization, based on the philosophy of sports for social change to empower Jamaica's youth. We will be practicing in an expansive open air pavilion that also provides an exquisite panoramic view of Treasure Beach.
