Hatha yoga, peaceful time in meditation. Full cultural immersion is waiting for you. Release your worries, leave the stress behind. Smell the fresh sea air. Taste local ingredients. Escape in the middle of the winter. Experience jungle bathing. 

We will focus on strengthening your body and mind. Guadeloupe is filled with surf beaches, hiking trails, meditation spots and natural spaces to practice yoga. We care about cultural immersion and our daily excursions bring you into the heart of Guadeloupe to explore the richness and history. Find time to practice yoga along the coast of Guadeloupe, guided surf instruction in Caribbean waves, soak your body in volcanic mineral waters, inhale the oxygen rich air of the jungle and try French cuisine that carries its own creole flavor. Give yourself a taste of Caribbean sun in the middle of winter. Come warm up with us!
