CARIBBEAN YOGA RETREAT AT PAYA BAY RESORT

APRIL 29TH - MAY 4TH

WITH JUST BREATHE YOGA TEACHERS MONICA SHARP AND BRANDY MANGUNO 

↠ What ↞

SIX DAYS AND FIVE NIGHTS SURROUNDED BY THE BEAUTIFUL BLUE WATERS OF THE CARIBBEAN AND THE WONDERFUL WELLNESS RESORT OF PAYA BAY

Paya Bay is a beach, nature, leisure, and wellness resort catering to those seeking serenity, tranquility, and communion with nature. Our boutique resort is perched on a bluff overlooking the multi-hued Caribbean Sea and two beautiful half-moon beaches. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef (the world's second largest reef system) lies just a 100 yards offshore. The gentle tradewinds keep ambient temperatures cool and comfortable. Soaring music gives your spirit wings. Paths through enchanting nature you will love to explore. Beautiful energy to breathe in. The perfect place to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Paya Bay invites you to 'Feel Good, Be Happy'!

Yoga + Meditation

We will have two yoga classes a day, Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga,  yet leaving significant time for you to relax, unplug and reconnect in a luxurious environment. 

DINING 

Paya Bay’s mantra is “Feel Good, Be Happy.” Tasty, wholesome food is a critical part of feeling good, which, arguably, is a prerequisite for being happy. Our menu includes a variety of healthier options designed to maximize energy and supply necessary nutrients while minimizing the stuff that can slow you down when consumed in excess (saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar, etc.). Another part of feeling good comes from knowing that we are being conscientious and respectful of the sacred Web of Life. We are making an effort to minimize the use of any local species that are being overfished, as well as specific non-endangered species whose commercial production is considered harmful to the global environment. There is also a great bar facility with a delicious plunge pool located perfectly at beach level! A great place to take a freshwater plunge after swimming in the ocean or to enjoy sunset cocktails.

Bungalows 

Your room is your private space during your vacation. We want to make sure you have the creature comforts you expect, plus a little something extra that is unique, special, and out of the ordinary. Our rooms have an island bungalow look and feel with their high ceilings and wooden floors. The views from your private balcony are beautiful views of the beaches right outside your door. You will drift off to sleep to the soothing sound of waves breaking on the rocks, the beaches, and cliff sides.

Beaches + Coves 

The peninsula on which the resort is located has nearly a mile of waterfront. On the property you will find a large beach (Big Beach) that is visited by locals and guests from other resorts, a bluff on which the restaurant sits, imposing cliffs, a smaller private beach known as Bliss Beach, a very large rock formation shaped like an alligator's head that contains the Tropical Garden Reserve, a small cove called Secret Cove, a large cove called Buccaneer Landing, an islet with a bridge to it, a private rock island, a small ridge covered in dense tropical jungle, and the multi-acre Wetlands Reserve. Really a numerous and extraordinarily varied collection of features you will find fascinating to explore and enjoy.

ACTIVITIES 

For some people, the ideal vacation is had by simply relaxing, reading a good book under the shade of a coconut tree on a beautiful private beach, swimming in the clear Caribbean or taking a dip in the pool, and getting a good tan. Other people, in addition to the above, add some activities like snorkeling, hiking, scuba diving, sea kayaking, horseback riding, local and deepwater fishing, bird watching, island exploration, hitting some local bars, and so on. No matter what floats your vacation boat, you can find it at Paya Bay!

↠ Where ↞

New Years Yoga Reset 2017

When: Sunday, January 1st, 2017 at 4:30 PM - 7 PM

Where: Just Breathe Yoga Studio - 339 Girod St.

Special “opening” yoga class followed by new intentions and releases!!

A Sanskrit word, sankalpa means “will, purpose, or determination.” To make a sankalpa is to set an intention. It’s like a New Year’s resolution with a yogic twist. While a resolution often zeroes in on a perceived negative aspect of ourselves (as in, “I want to lose weight, so no more chocolate chip cookies or ice cream or cheese”), a sankalpa explores what’s behind the thought or feeling (“I crave chocolate chip cookies or ice cream or cheese when I’m feeling stressed or sad. I will set an intention to become conscious of this craving and allow my feelings to arise and pass, rather than fill up on fats”).

It also praises the nobility of the effort rather than focusing on what you are doing wrong. New Year’s resolutions, this time with a conscious effort to reject the resolution rut. We will encourage ourselves to look back and let go, and to open the heart to new possibilities.

In this special workshop you will make up a mantra (a short repeated sound or phrase) and paint it onto your own Just Breathe sweatshirt. Take it home forever!!

Open to all. (Your sweatshirt size is required)
