Our Journeys

Be. Loved. My Beloved.:
A Christian Yoga Wellness Journey for Women

Are you feeling as though you are the never-ending chaos-coordinator for life?

Grab your best friends, sisters, aunts, mother, adult daughter, cousin and anyone you know to join us on this luxury, faith-filled yoga & wellness retreat! Everyone needs time to refocus and remember that they are loved. This year’s theme: Be Loved, My Beloved gives you the intentional time to rest and refresh.

Step away from life as you know it and enjoy the warm Caribbean breeze as it kisses your skin. Bask in the sun while enjoying Biblical meditation and community time on the beach. Reconnect with God and nature as you soak it all in, filling your heart, mind, body and soul through movement, meditation, Bible study and fellowship.

This 6-day, 5-night Christian Yoga Journey for women provides you with intentional space to find your deepest contentment in God.

What does it mean to Be?
What does it mean to Be Loved?
What does it mean to Be loved as His Beloved?
Walk this beautiful journey with us.

This is a soul-care retreat where you will reconnect with your Creator while also recharging your heart and mind. There will be lots of free time to explore and relax on the beach, by the serpentine pools, and in the beach yoga pagoda. Take all the time you need for yourself during free time, or make new friends and bond in fellowship with the friends you’ve brought with you. You’ll be surprised by the many wellness activities available to you on-resort — delight in your exploration!

Step outside of your average retreat, and join us as we rediscover what it means to be loved as God’s beloved daughter.
