Start your day with fresh local fruit, followed by a gentle st lucia yoga and meditation class. Hike one of the islands nature trails and return in time for a relaxing massage.
Our St Lucia yoga and wellness activities perfectly complement the beautiful and tranquil natural environment at Balenbouche. Our yoga studio is a rustic and charismatic barn which like most of our structures, creates a flowing transition between inside and outside.
Classes are open to all levels and led either informally by a family member, or by a certified yoga instructor (minimum of 4). Please let us know in advance if you’re interested! The yoga studio, mats and blocks are available anytime for your personal practice.
Several times a year, we offer st lucia yoga retreats focused on meditation, mindfulness, nutrition, life coaching, art, sustainable living and more
Our retreats are small and highly personalized, typically between 6 – 12 participants. Retreats are organized and led by local or overseas certified instructors, and many are repeat and regular customers.
