Yoga
 
All our instructors are experienced yoga teachers, speaking English.
 
We prepare a yoga program that will suit your level, from beginner to intermediate, for balance, immune system boost, weight loss,
 
Yoga sessions are based on Hatha & Kundalini & Yin yoga.
 
The classes usually take place on the yoga platform facing the ocean or on our roofed yoga ashram.
We usually do two classes a day (morning sunrise and evening sunset) but it can vary.
 
Sometimes we host special guests: Yoga gurus from India and Yogi masters from all around the world, Ayurveda experts, spiritual guides, meditation
 
We will share with you all the knowledge we have gathered, to give you a different idea on how to live a healthier & happier life even in a fast paced society; the changes one can make in little habits, tricks for improvement and yoga practices, that are just so good for everyone and have the power to improve your quality of life.
 
Once we are happy, the world is becoming a better place; the Earth heals through us.
 
Yoga sessions will be tailored to meet your needs. We can work specifically on your issues (back pain, weight loss, hips openers, ), so that you will get the most out of your time here. Different yoga techniques will be introduced and different meditation techniques as well, so that you can find the one that fits you most.
 
We will make a special custom-made plan for you to continue it afterwards, so that your time here becomes a true life improving experience.
 
Food
 
We believe that the starting point for rejuvenation of the body and mind is through the foods that we consume, therefore at Go Natural Jamaica, we offer an abundance of carefully selected fresh fruits, organic vegetables, homemade foods and healthy snacks, prepared with loving care and attention.
 
Or menu is based on Jamaican & Caribbean cuisine with healthy international variations. Our juices and meals have the purpose to cleanse and rebalance the body, without eliminating the essential nutrients required.
 
It is a VEGETARIAN menu, with fresh seasonal products grown locally.  There are 3 main meals included daily, as well as snacks and fruits during the day. All food is included in the cost of your retreat.*** (no food on Master Cleanse & Juicing retreat)
 
The foods that we do not serve include: pork, beef, chicken, fish, white sugar, bread, refined flour, dairy products, alcohol and sweets. These foods place extra stress on our body systems. By cutting them out for a few days, the body has the opportunity to rebalance itself.
 
We do a variety of teas from Jamaican herbs that have impressive healing properties. You can at any time make yourself any of these teas.
 
Jamaican flora possesses 80% of the most powerful medicinal plants and we have learnt to use them as natural remedies. We will be more than happy to share our knowledge with you.
 
Accommodation
 
We can accommodate up to 12 people, either on a Budget Dorm Room, Private Room or Seafront Villa.   See photos here
 
At this point it is important to remark that we are not a luxury resort. Go Natural Sanctuary is a meditative space, located in a priceless natural environment. We don’t offer the luxury of a five stars resort (our facilities are eco-friendly and low-key), but we do offer a different kind of luxury: welcoming you as an integral human being - more than just a customer - where you can truly be yourself and feel genuinely cared for.

Portable AC is available for any room, for extra 10$/night.

Seasonal information
Jamaica has a spectacular climate all year-round. Average daytime temperatures range from 80° to 95°F (28°-34°C) and the water just few grades less. July and August are usually the hottest months, and February the coolest, however, the difference between hot and cold months is as little as 10°F (7°C).
The climate is very tropical. March and December are the rainiest months, with the most rain falling in the mountains. When rain does fall, it is usually light showers, it lasts for just a short time, and then the sky clears and the sun shines. If you see a rainy forecast, don't despair - weather changes quickly in Jamaica.
Hurricane season in the Caribbean runs from June through November each year. Keep in mind, however, that the Caribbean is a much bigger area than you think, so the chances of a hurricane finding this little island are slim.
