  • Description


    I am a yoga teacher trainer and mind body therapist practicing and facilitating in this field for the last 25 years. I founded the first yoga studio on Miami Beach 21 years ago and am now living in my country of birth, Jamaica. I turned my family home into an up and coming yoga/wellness/bed and breakfast retreat. We are located in a small village in the parish of St. Mary called Bamboo Walk. We are in walking distance from some rivers and fifteen minutes from the beach. It is a rustic, humble environment offering our visitors an experience of a simple authentic rural life.
