About this trip

Harness your inner bliss by joining us for a week-long retreat in the tranquil mountainous beauty of Belize. So often, the good feelings we chase in life elude us. Sometimes life just gets in the way, but more often than not, we are the ones in the way of ourselves. On this retreat, we will take the time to nurture our inner intuition, through different yogic practices focused on creating inner harmony & healing. Through these practices we will develop skills to secure the inner innate bliss that we already possess in every moment. This is an empowering and transformative experience with effects that will last long after your departure.


 On this week-long retreat, our goal is to bring you back to the heights of your inner experiences, and expand them to new levels through yoga, meditation, and through profound personal connections with other guests. Our offerings include ancient yogic wisdom in the form of Pranayama (breathing exercises), mantra, chanting, asanas (yoga poses), and story telling.


The experience will be led by two E-RYT 500 Certified instructors, Aaliya Noorani and Diala Hamed. We have a passion for the spiritual and transformative potential of the yoga practice, and want to share with you these experiences to help you live your best life. Our week long retreat will include daily yoga, meditation, and cultural activities, all of which are focused on relaxing your mind, enhancing your clarity, and empowering your spirit. In the in-between time we encourage self-reflection with the option for many add-ons excursions such as zip lining, waterfall trekking, visiting Mayan ruins and caves and touring the caribbean ocean.  All levels of yoga experience, and all people are welcome! 


We ask a $300 non-refundable deposit to hold your space. The rest of your payment will be due in two parts.






Meet Your Teachers

Aaliya Noorani


Aaliya is an E-500 RYT Vancouver, Canada based yoga instructor. Having studied in the birth place of yoga, India-  Aaliya’s classes integrate traditional foundations of physical asana, pranayama (breath work), yoga philosophy and mantra (chanting) meditation with a present day approach to philosophy and practice that provides students with a whole and integrative experience. Aaliya has taught yoga in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia and has found an approach to teaching yoga that is accessible and informative to practitioners of all backgrounds and level of experience. Yoga has strengthened her connection to self by finding a balanced practice of patient discipline and experiencing playfulness through the union of breath and movement. Traditional philosophy, mythology and mantra are the heart of her practice. The mythological stories and classical teachings offer a gateway to the universal experiences of what it means to be human. These practices provide wisdom that connect her to her ancestral roots and our innate expansive capacity. Ancient chants that still the mind and leave a permeating vibrational shift within us. It is with this passion for the ‘yuj’ (union) of all parts of what the practice truly provides that she shares with her students.


Diala Hamed


(E-RYT 500) Raleigh, North Carolina native Diala was introduced to yoga in 2011 while earning her B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics. After a few classes, she noticed a shift in her mind and body. This shift sparked her curiosity about the philosophy of yoga, and lead her to complete her 200 hour YTT in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. In an immersion program, she studied the practices which ultimately help us become our most humble and content selves. In November 2018 she earned her 300 hr certification at Akhanda Yoga School in Rishikesh, India. She has since taught and participated in yoga across the globe in over 10 countries, across Europe, Asia, and Australia. She spent ten days in silent meditation (Vipassana) in New Zealand to better understand her mind. Yoga has taught Diala to ride the waves of life instead of trying to fight them. She believes wherever you are in your practice is always enough, but when you’re ready she’ll give you the extra push you need to pass your expectations.

Reviews

This was such an amazing retreat, I was expecting mostly a lot of yoga but it was so much more. A lot of fun activities and relaxation mixed in, an ideal summer retreat at the top of the mountain with superb views, amazing teachers, and awesome people. This turned out to be the highlight of my summer. Thank you!
Fantastic location! The view over the mountains was breathtaking and we could see all the stars and the milky way during night. I loved the decor of the hangar. We were sleeping in the "hallway" and I slept like a baby. I think that some light sleepers had trouble sleeping but I didn't. The bed was super comfy and it was a very dark corner of the building. Diala provided us with ear plugs as well :-) I did bring my own pillow and duvet, and that might have helped. The food served during the weekend was very yummy and it was fun to try some new dishes and types of food that I would never have cooked myself. Everything was fresh and there were fruit and snacks available the whole time. We tried several different types of yoga and went paddleboarding and hiking, so it was an active weekend! Diala and Lauren are both very good and inspiring yoga teachers. The lake and the river where we went swimming were in such beautiful settings. I ran in the mornings, but the hangar is located on the mountain so unless you want to run downhill and then uphill, you have to run several rounds around the houses, which was ok since the view was amazing. It did get chilly, especially the first evening and morning, so bring enough layers. Our group was also really cool. People were very relaxed and friendly and we had loads of fun.
This retreat exceeded my expectations. It was clear that a lot of planning had gone into making this a special experience for the participants. The property is beautiful and unique. The food was amazing, the yoga was challenging and rejuvenating, the yoga instructors are highly-qualified and the participants were dedicated to learning and fun!
I had a great time. They provided some of the healthiest and delicious food I have ever had. The location, accommodations and hospitality were top notch. Forever grateful.
Everything about this retreat was so well organized, and the quality of care for everyone who went was exceptional. The location was simply magical, both with inviting hospitality and a peaceful stillness, nestled on the peak of a mountain with breathtaking views. The prepared food was delicious, while still remaining conscious of healthy eating and individual food preferences. One of the BEST retreat experiences I've had! Much gratitude to Diala and Nova Retreats. I look forward to the next one! :D
