St Lucia Retreats

“Balenbouche is indeed a world within itself exuding a tranquil presence of warmth,  hospitality and harmony.” (Tropical Traveler)

Our St Lucia retreats help people take a step back from their busy lives and the constant background noise of our modern world. We help individuals reconnect with nature, each other and themselves. Over the years, we have hosted many retreats, workshops, team building exercises and family reunions. Past events have also included Art and Photography workshops, Archeology field schools, University Courses and Cultural exchanges. Many of our retreats are wellness – centered, focusing on Detox, Nutrition, Mind/Body healing, Yoga and Fitness. Many are organized by private instructors overseas. We also host local groups and organize events in-house.

We can sleep between 8 and 14 retreat participants in 6 separate accommodations. For groups, we typically offer an all inclusive package which includes meals, activities and excursions. Yoga classes, workshops, massages and other therapies usually take place in our beautiful rustic historic barn. Classes and wellness services can also be booked year-round, individually, or as a package!

Peace and Calm Sivananda Yoga Retreats

24 May - 02 June 2020

Repeat Retreat!

This Sivananda Yoga retreat is a holiday away from an everyday life where you can deepen your practice of yoga and spend time with yourself and others in a spiritually aware (but not religious) atmosphere. An important aspect of the retreat is the chance to participate in karma yoga, or the creation of a co-operative, clean and helpful environment for the group. Karma yoga radiates through the group and each participant benefits from the well-intentioned selfless actions of all. We encourage all participants to remain on the extensive and fascinating grounds of the Estate during the yoga retreat. Group outings will also be organized. Find out more about this retreat…
