Belize (No date set) Eco-Adventure Yoga and Yamuna Body Rolling® with Melora
We are met at the airport and transported a few hours through beautiful Belize countryside to our separate bungalow lodging at the amazing location of Black Rock Lodge for 4 nights. In pristine mountain rain forest we enjoy Yoga every morning and Yamuna Body Rolling late afternoons in an outdoor thatch roof yoga pavilion, overlooking a pure river to tube down, mountains to climb, and birds to sight. One day excursion is to hike through rivers to a hidden cave, enter and be enchanted by a Mayan past. Another day we take a river pulley bridge to a fascinating Mayan ruin with guided tour and perhaps a local market visit. There is a free day where you can choose to bird watch, hike, visit another Mayan ruin, read in your hammock or visit waterfalls and swim. We then travel by bus to the coast, stopping for a lunch, and with luck a visit to a local village chocolate maker, board a boat and cruise out to our private island for the next 3 nights, in well appointed separate bungalows dotted around the island. Again morning yoga and setting sun Yamuna Body Rolling over the ocean on a thatched roof platform. Included in the price is 3 meals a day, 3 excursions, – Cave Adventure, Mayan Archeological Tour, Snorkeling Adventure, all transportation in Belize, and every morning Yoga Class and evening Yamuna Body Rolling Class with Melora, in lovely outdoor pavilions!

Her main influences are BKS Iyengar Master Teacher Patricia Walden, Gabriel Halpern, and Doug Keller. Registered as an instructor with the Yoga Alliance, (E-RYT 500), she continues to learn anatomy, therapeutics, yoga philosophy and flow sequences, which she joyfully incorporates into her alignment based classes. Melora has instructed yoga at many week long retreats to Italy, Monhegan Island Maine, Costa Rica and Belize. Spending junior year in England, traveling Europe (1980-1), serving in the Peace Corps in Tanzania, East Africa (1983-6) and living 2 years in New Zealand (1986-8), Melora is fascinated with culture and travel.
Certified in Yamuna Body Rolling® Level ll in 2009, and in Foot Fitness in 2011, Melora is delighted at how healing and beneficial this form of body work is.
