“If you want to relax and unwind, delicious vegetarian meals cooked from scratch, challenging yoga taught by one of the strongest instructors I’ve ever encountered, this IS the place for you.”
Chaya Garden Ashram is a beautiful place, an absolute gem to discover. It is the place we would love to spend the rest of our lives. Nestled in the jungle AND close to town, anyone visiting San Ignacio, Belize who is interested in Yoga, natural healing, swimming, birds, and R&R should come for a visit.
There is nothing so refreshing as a swim in a fresh water spring when you are dripping sweat, just from spending the morning in town! One dip might be enough to keep you refreshed all day long! But the waterfalls are right there, so we spend the whole day going into and out of the water.
After your swim, treat yourself and receive a massage from the healing hands of Laine Hoogstraten. Just this morning I was feeling like I was falling apart from the vigorous kundalini yoga class we partook at 8am. In only half an hour of massage, and a little rest afterward, I was ready to take on the world again! Laine speaks the language of energy with your body, listening and learning about subtle energies. It is how she earned herself the name “Laine Hand-singer”.
I know the impetuous is to go out there in Belize and see every mayan ruin you can and see as much of this amazing and vibrant country, but let me give you a word of advice; “GO SLOW!” However you can make a day of seeing 3 different ruins in Cayo District!
We can also prepare you a vegetarian meal, with local vegetables, salads, smoothies, soups, you name it. We are well acquainted with the variety of available fruits and veggies, and know what to do with them. All to be had for a reasonable cost.
Take a little time where the healing is strong, and there are many healing places in Belize. We have found one of the best ways to incorporate natural healing into your itinerary and it’s called Chaya Garden Ashram.
