About this trip

Join All Bodies Rise Yoga (ABRY) for our First Annual Yoga and Seva Retreat in Negril, Jamaica! ABRY is dedicated to body positivity, mental wellness, and social justice. Our yoga is gentle, intended to soothe your nervous system and release tension and stress. We want our retreat to be inclusive, and for you to come as you are. No prior yoga experience or expensive yoga pants necessary! 


You'll spend 6 days and 5 nights at an intimate, 17 room cliff-side resort.  Each open-air room has a private balcony that offers a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. Catch some sun on the 1,500 square feet of multi-level cliffside sun decks, or take the stairway to the sea for swimming, snorkeling and cliff diving.  This retreat will embody rest and relaxation. A sanctuary to unwind and slow down, and an opportunity to offer *seva.


Between the beaches, breathtaking sunsets, amazing food and the vibrant Jamaican culture – as well as the spirit of the Jamaican people – you'll find yourself falling into step with the island of No Worries. You will enjoy the slow and easy vibes of Jamaica, practice yoga daily, swim in the calm waters of the Caribbean sea, dip in the pool any time you wish, and have the option of heading out for live music and nightlife. 


This trip will include gentle, body-positive yoga, meditation and group council, a group snorkeling adventure, and an unforgettable day trip for service work in either Nine Mile or Kingston.  You can also relax, read, and do absolutely nothing as well. This is your vacation, a unique, once in a lifetime experience, and a completely different kind of yoga retreat. 


Payment plans available! Your deposit reserves your room. The remaining balance will be spread out to make the trip more accessible. 


*(Seva: The Art of Selfless Service. ... “Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one's spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community.)

Fun, exciting, educational, beautiful, magical, upliftin,good food, very nice people !
We had a great time with awesome people, and this experience wouldn't have been as special without the group. Thank you everyone and to Jeniffer for making this happen. The accommodations, food and beach location was perfect as well.
Caressed by the gentle trade winds, Home Sweet Home, in Negril. Jamaica, was perfect for this retreat, along with fresh, locally sourced meals, comfortable rooms, and a warm and friendly staff. As aging women and survivors of sexual abuse, the body positive approach of ABRY allows for individual autonomy and feels delicious. There were many adventure options as well as opportunities to be of service. My partner and I brought supplies to be delivered to a home for elders in the community. One of the most rewarding parts of the trip for us was learning a bit of the local culture and getting to know the amazing staff, who began to participate in our morning and evening yoga, adding to the inclusiveness that ABRY is all about.
