About this trip

Set the intention to finish the year in a powerful way. Yoga is self work and self work is a practice - an ongoing effort. Deepen or begin your yoga journey by joining me for a mind, body and soul experience on the beautiful island of St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands for an end of the year yoga retreat! 


Unable to touch your toes? GREAT! Super bendy contortionist body? AWESOME! This journey is tailored for the experienced and novice yogi alike.  This journey will include twice daily opportunities for yoga and meditation, as well as lots of time for adventure and relaxation. Practicing yoga and meditation is optional giving you the flexibility to choose if and when you practice!


You will also have ample time to experience the vibrancy of Virgin Islands culture while re-alining with your heart's purpose. The greatest adventure of life is discovering your true nature. Come home to your purest self by closing 2019 with love and breaking into 2020 with new found perspective.  You deserve it!

Ibeliz Guadalupe

Ibeliz Guadalupe has been practicing yoga since 2008 while living in New York City. Yoga became a pathway to pause and reset in the midst of city life. She became a registered vinyasa yoga teacher (RYT) in 2015. Soon after, having great love for children, she became Level 1 Children's Yoga certified and Level 1 Rasa-Restorative Yoga certified as well. After a series of fortunate events, life brought her back to Ohio, where she completed her undergrad in Fashion Design 10 years prior. It is here that Ibeliz began exploring the mental limbs of yoga and became meditation and reiki level certified as well . During this transformative time, she deepened her practice by peeling back layers of self to find her truth. She believe that her life's purpose is to teach and shine light. Whether its fashion design, art or yoga, she aims to continue growing as a teacher and learning as a student to continue to spread love light and knowledge everywhere she can.

The St. Croix Yoga Journey into 2020 was a series of unforgettable experiences. Ibelize had this trip very well organized, and her positive and cheery spirit made it so enjoyable! There were unique lodgings right in the rainforest, with views of the crystal clear nighttime scene of the starry sky, unlike I have seen. Being surrounded by native plants, trees, and creatures was a dream for a nature lover like me. She led us through yoga on a platform bordered by the rainforest, an inspirational setting. We went on a food tasting tour plus walking tour of the city, a great introduction to St. Croix’s fascinating history and culture. Home cooked meals were delicious. Seeing the movie JUMANJI with the local audience made me feel a part of St. Croix,, where I grew quickly to love the people, culture, and history. Since Ibeliz is native to this beautiful place, her familiarity and love for the island readily transferred to the members of the Yoga Retreat. The boating and kayaking trips were experiences I often dream about, but rarely experience. Visiting and exploring the well preserved ruins of the plantation had a special and unique feel for the past and its meaning. Being able to photograph the yoga on the beach at sunset on the last day of the decade was a beautiful experience. Reviewing my many photos will continue to allow me to appreciate that scene. Finally, there were memorable drives to Pt. Udall and through the rainforest on Mahogany Road. Thank you Ibeliz for packing so much life into this journey. I also really enjoyed the other members of the Yoga Retreat - both from the Mainland, and Ibeliz’s great family. Stephen Harvey
St. Croix owes me nothing! It was a glimpse of paradise: beautiful sunrises and sunsets, lovely people and great food! Ibeliz was a gracious host and I would definitely journey with her again!
Thank you to one of the best if not the best Yoga Instructor I know. It was an amazing trip. So grateful to have spent the last week of the year with you. Can’t wait to do it again. Love, Ivy

Trust yourself and go on this experience with Ibeliz! St. Croix was absolutely beautiful , the vegan meals she had prepared for us everyday were delicious and the fun trips we took to explore the island were unforgettable. Most importantly where we stayed in the cottage was relaxing and absolutely beautiful, this yoga-cation allowed me to completely open my mind and spirit to what the universe had to say to me. 5/5
