PRESS PAUSE and reset your mind, body and soul on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure to a stunning private island in Belize! Rejuvenate on a life-affirming week of yoga, fitness, nutrition, outdoor adventure and relaxation in a completely secluded setting that brings a whole new meaning to to the word "disconnect."

Stay at the beautiful private island resort of Thatch Caye with a huge salt water pool, unobstructed views of the ocean from your over-the-water bungalow or ocean-view-cabana, air conditioned rooms with private bathrooms and all the amenities you need in a rustic, one-with-nature setting. Enjoy full access to island water sports like kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, windsurfing and more - all included in your retreat package and at your disposal anytime during the trip.

The island resort hosts 30 people at the very most at any given time making this a truly unique, private adventure. Participate in as many or as few activities as you'd like - all designed to help you disconnect from the grind and reconnect to your body and your soul.

Cannot possibly say one negative thing - this group is amazing, this location is amazing, I wish I was still there. This experience was life changing. Miss you all!

SoulPlay retreats are perfect for solo travelers, friends and couples looking to experience something beyond just 'going on vacation.' We're for people who are interested in personal growth and supportive community while connecting and challenging your body and mind. Our deal is, "you do you," but we offer plenty of opportunities to make this a an experience that will ignite positive shifts in your life.

This hybrid adventure is perfect for someone looking for an active retreat focused on fitness, wellness, good food, good people and adventure with a healthy dose of much deserved down time.

The trip is designed to refresh you, inspire you and make you feel part of something. We show up for ourselves and for each other, we dig deep and come home transformed in some way.

 

This is not your typical yoga retreat!!
 

The locations we select and the activities we curate may push you out of your comfort zone, make you face fears and look at how you show up to new and exciting challenges. We work hard, play hard and rest hard. We start to break through patterns that have kept us from our full potential, all while building real friendships for life!

We start the day with a Vinyasa Yoga class every morning and include a daily Metabolic Effect workout class (30 minute high intensity workouts at your own pace).
Based on how activity-packed the day is, we often end with a yin or restorative yoga sesh to recoup after those workouts!

This experience was completely transformative to the well being of my soul. The connections that were made with strangers were authentic and absent of ego. We became a family almost instantly! I felt comfortable and supported and encouraged to be my true self.

In between, there's:

  • group activities & games
  • learn to stand upside down (handstand/headstand & shenanigans- beginners welcome!)
  • play on the swing right over the salt water "pool" that joins the ocean
  • kayak or paddle board to your heart's content
  • explore the 1 mile long island on foot or a bike
  • challenge yourself with an outdoor rapelling & hiking adventure
  • kick back and read a book or take a nap on one of the many hammocks throughout the property.

Play is a big part of our programs - we believe that dropping the hats we wear and being a kid again brings us back to who we truly are and gives us a chance to look at life with a fresh perspective.

We welcome all ages and all levels of experience. Our classes accessible, challenging, playful and fun for everyone. You don't need to be a yogi or a fitness buff - you just need to be a human being interested in exploring, playing, growing and getting your movement on! Basic familiarity with yoga is recommended but not required.

  • Have you had an interest in a yoga or fitness retreat but didn’t want to sit in silence for a week or show up and feel out of place physically?

Have no fear! Our yoga and fitness classes are challenging to all levels and we meet you where you are in your practice and physical abilities. Nathania loves to make yoga playful and accessible no matter how much or how little experience you have. Gary’s workouts are designed for all levels of fitness as well. He likes to say that his grandmother and an Olympic athlete could both get a good workout. If you want to dabble in the world of mindfulness and meditation, without being TOO serious about it, we've got you.

  • Do you feel like you need to put down your phone for a bit and disconnect with other amazing humans and reconnect with yourself mentally, spiritually and physically?

Let’s get out of the rat race and feel alive again all while making new friends, recharge our batteries, and create some new memories that will last forever!

  • Are you a little bit adventurous and that little voice inside is urging you to “get out and flex your holy sh!t muscles”?

We are a perfect fit if you’ve been looking for new ways to challenge yourself mentally and physically in a safe and encouraging environment. The best cure for inaction is to put yourself in uncomfortable situations and be ok with that. Our adventures span the realm of cave drop-ins of 300ft in Belize to zip lining on the longest line in Mexico to jumping from a 50ft pendulum swing. Regardless, we will meet you where you are and help you get to the next level in whatever area you’ve been stuck.

  • Ready to see how you stand in your own way so you can move through that and start living the life you deserve?

All you need to be is open to having a new experience and connecting deeply with others from all over the world. You can go as deep into reflection as you want, or keep it casual. If you’re feeling stuck or looking for answers, this is the perfect opportunity dive in.

  • Are you a little excited and nervous about doing something like this?

Good! That’s exactly what we want you to feel. From this place of fear and excitement, magic happens! You’re not alone. See what others have said just below. Know that we are going to do everything we can to make sure you have a great experience. All you need to do is show up with an open mind!
