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!
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.
(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.
