This year, Amanda and I have chosen the Sea Breeze resort on the south coast of Barbados for our annual Caribbean yoga retreat. Complete with private pools, an expansive white sand beach, and three different restaurants on the property, there is no need to leave the hotel. Should you want to venture out, however, St. Lawrence Gap—known for its amazing restaurants, bars, and live music—is only a short cab ride away. Yoga classes will be held twice daily on an open-air porch with a view of the Caribbean Sea. Welcoming for all levels, these classes will follow the format of a vigorous vinyasa flow designed to strengthen and lengthen the body while calming the restive mind.
The retreat price includes daily yoga classes, an ocean view suite, and all meals and beverages (including alcohol). Airfare and airport transfer are not included. JetBlue goes direct from NYC to Barbados and the airport is a short twenty-minute cab ride from the resort.
