In Costa Rica, she learnt the secrets of Kundalini yoga, nutrition, surf, and harmony with the ocean, in Czech the secrets of Tantra yoga and Mohenzodaro (yoga for women), and was influenced by the great masters of yoga that have been curing all types of illnesses of modern society with the art of yoga.

Food
You will get homemade healthy food and snacks prepared according to your preferences. There will be 3 main meals included, as well as healthy snacks and fruits during the day. You have a choice of vegetarian, vegan, raw, or normal meals. With every yoga session, there will be a different herbal tea made from Jamaican healing herbs.

Fresh Juices from local fruits and vegetables are served daily. Yoga Bless believes that the starting point for rejuvenation of the body and mind is through the foods that we consume. Therefore, they offer an abundance of fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole foods at Yoga Bless Jamaica. The food is included in the cost of your retreat.

To Yoga Bless, detox and rejuvenation means eating the foods that supports our bodies to cleanse and to help us move towards our ideal weight, rather than adopting a starvation diet where you are always feeling hungry. They prepare juices and meals that cleanse and rebalance your bodies, without eliminating the essential nutrients required.

They use seasonal products where possible, grown or locally, so the menu is typically Jamaican. All food is served fresh, prepared and cooked on the premises, with care and loving attention. The foods that they do not serve include: pork, beef, white sugar, bread, refined flour, cow's milk and derivatives, alcohol and sweets. These foods all place extra stress on our body systems, so by cutting them out for one week, or a few days, the body has the opportunity to rebalance itself.

At Yoga Bless, they use a lot of natural remedies, superfood, fruit smoothies and natural medicinal plants that can be found in Jamaica (and its 80% of all most powerful herbal medicinal plants). They will be more than happy to share their knowledge with you.
