How Belize has become a top destination for yoga enthusiasts
A yogi’s sun salutation mirrors the rising sun over the Belize City harbor. The seagulls call to each other as the fishing boats pass by and the day begins to warm as you start meditating on your mat. Whether you’re a newcomer to Yoga or an experienced Yogi, Belize has become a mecca for the wellness oriented. Further, it’s now a common luxury to practice Ashtanga overlooking the Belize City Harbor, in the lush rainforest among spectacular waterfalls, on the grounds of sacred Maya sites, or on solitary beaches at sunset.
