About This Center

Yoga in Harmony with Horses is a transformational journey to develop awareness & strength in your body, mind & soul. The practice of meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques) and asanas (postures) heightens your self awareness creating a deeper connection to your horse, to the nature around you and to your inner self. It is a path of healing, of Knowing Yourself and Knowing the Horse.

Venue Highlights

2km away from the coast, our center is well in the jungle. You'll live the best of both Caribbean worlds, waking up amongst monkeys, birds, sloths, butterflies and hummingbirds, while also making it down to the beach, dipping your toes in the sand and welcoming the sun as you practice sunrise Yoga.
Our arena and yoga shala are both walled by the tall trees of the jungle, rain or shine, the sounds will fill you with peace, leaving you completely revitalized by the end of this trip.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
