About this trip

Joy is our birthright. From the day we make our debut earthside, it is already within us. However, as we journey from infant to adulthood, we often lose sight of that very thing that’s so intrinsic to our being. This often results from past conditionings, traumas, negative thoughts and patterns. 

Join us in the tropical paradise of Belize, for a 6 day, 5 night women’s wellness retreat experience led by Jaimee Ratliff, LeNaya Smith Crawford & Lauren Williams: a dynamic trio of spiritual changemakers, who’ll help you reawaken and cultivate even more joy in your life through soulful, immersive experiences for your complete well-being.

Together we’ll explore the healing modalities of yoga, meditation & mindfulness, breathwork and sound: bringing us back to our purest state of joy!


Nestled south of Mexico, east of Guatemala and next to the Caribbean Sea, Belize is an untouched paradise with an abundance of wildlife – both on land and in the sea. From its time as a part of the Maya civilization to its role in the British Empire, Belize has a rich cultural heritage reflected in the diverse people who now call it home.

Our Resort is located on the beautiful Maya Beach in the Placencia Peninsula, a verdant, 18-mile long isthmus in southern Belize poised near the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and near the country’s extensive network of protected areas and parks. Each day you can watch the sun rise over the Caribbean and set over the Maya Mountains. Enjoy the on-site amenities; swim-up bar, spacious pool, restaurants, an overwater bar, marina, and more.


Guests are welcome to use the complimentary scheduled transportation to Placencia village to take in the arts and crafts and enjoy its bars and restaurants.

For those seeking relaxation, calming beaches run the length of the peninsula. If you're looking to explore, the reef offers some of the best diving in the country or head inland to one of the many national parks and forest preserves. In between, in Placencia lagoon, you may even see a manatee.

We all have to start somewhere and retreats are the perfect space to start and/or grow your practice.

If you're new, let us know so we can make sure our teachers are prepped to assist you. 

2. I've never travelled before and I don't have anyone to go with. Can I come alone?

Yes!! Before you go, we are here to guide you and get you prepared as much as possible for this retreat and travel experience. With us, you're never alone! We set up a group chat to communicate with one week prior to the retreat to check in and update each other as you start your travel from where ever you may be. We'll pair you up with a roommate, who will most likely end up being a lifelong friend.  You may come alone, but you'll end up leaving with a community of like minded people who will forever be connected through this experience.

Yes! Once you've paid the deposit amount, the remainder of your balance can be split and paid by the remaining months left until the full balance is due.  For example, if the total retreat is $2,300 USD and you pay your deposit in November - starting from December to April (5 months) you will pay a monthly fee of $360 USD. If you would like this option, once you've paid your deposit please email us at to set up a payment plan for you.

I had a wonderful time with the Montana Retreat and am really grateful for the opportunity to have attended. The only thing that I think could have been better was communication & planning with the actual staff from the retreat center. There were a few cases when Adzentures made a change to the schedule but the staff at the retreat center didn't seem to know about it which lead to some confusion and at least in one case, missing an appointment that was scheduled for one of the retreat attendees and that person needing to pay a cancelation fee.

I had a great time - I loved the yoga classes, the accommodation and the food.
This was such an AMAZING trip!!! I can't recommend Adzenture Retreats enough! I went on this trip by myself and was a little anxious and nervous about it to be honest. It has forever changed me as a person in the best of ways and I am continuing to use methods and techniques that I learned at the retreat. Daniela and Azma were both amazing and made me feel so welcome in a foreign city. I am so grateful to both of them for a great and thoughtful agenda, awesome and healthy food, and most of all for accepting me as I was and making me feel like family. If you are considering going on any of their trips, my advice is DO IT! You won't regret it! Much love, Amanda

This trip was so well thought out and smooth as a participant! The venue was beautiful. The pace of the activities and free time seemed just right and the food was divine!! Azma & Daniela & Kelly are so much fun to be with too!

This trip was needed for all of us! Daniela and Azma are amazing! They planned such great adventures for us not to mention great food!! Kelly as always did a fabulous job with yoga and meditations. I got to experience a sound bath, which was one of my favorite parts!! Everybody was just so open , non-judgmental, and fun! Just being a part of a like-minded group of gals was the connection and community I've been craving! I could've definitely stayed for another day! I can't wait to go on another retreat! See you guys soon!!
