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 us reconnect people with nature, each other and themselves. Most of our retreats are organized by overseas instructors and are wellness – centered, focusing on Detox, Nutrition, Mind/Body healing, Yoga and Fitness. We also host local groups and organize events in-house. Past events have also included Art and Photography workshops, Archeology field schools, University Courses, Cultural exchanges, concerts and weddings.

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!

Upcoming St Lucia Retreats

Peace and Calm Yoga retreat

May 31 - June 9, 2022

Annual Retreat!

This retreat is hosted by Mary Monrose Elke, who was the very first yoga teacher to host a retreat at Balenbouche Estate! Mary is from St Lucia and London and we have known her for over 20 years!

Deepen your practice of yoga and spend time with yourself and others in a spiritually aware (but not religious) atmosphere. An important aspect of this retreat is the chance to participate in karma yoga, or the creation of a co-operative, clean and helpful environment for the group. 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.

Experience yourself on a magical island with mystical waterfalls and turquoise blue sea, hot volcanic springs in the rain forest, black and golden sandy beaches and breathtaking views of the famous Pitons, which tower majestically over the sea. The elements of fire, earth, water, and air are more powerful than ever and work for your greatest benefit. Enjoy the sunrise as you immerse yourself in healing yoga asanas. Connect with yourself and with the elements of nature. We will celebrate sacred natural rituals in healing power places far from tourism.

About Anja Sherin Pfeiffer: I lived on this dream island for 3.5 years and offered retreats and healing therapies to the guests of the Balenbouche Estate.This is why I’m so thrilled to be able to explore the most beautiful and magical places in St. Lucia with you in April 2020.
