Full Description

Awaken your senses and prepare to be transported in an Anthony Bourdain-like YOL experience. Magical secret waterfalls. Luxury villa with private chef. Yoga and meditation twice a day. Delicious, healthy organic meals. Vibrant culture and music. Breathtaking cliffside coves. Deeply meaningful service projects with local schools.

The Highland House is located in an exclusive area of Jamaica aptly named Content. Rich with history and made famous by the Royal Windsor Family, Content is in the parish of St. James located just 20 minutes from Montego Bay and the airport – but it seems worlds away. Set among grand estates, coconut plantations, and thick bamboo forests, the Highland House features a panoramic view of the bay and village during the day that lights up to reveal a star-like scene at night.

Included in your retreat:

• Deluxe accommodations for 6 days/nights at the luxury villa Hammerstein Highland House, stretching across the cliffs of the pristine area of Content, adjacent to Montego Bay. The villa sleeps 12 people in 6 bedrooms (3 couples and 3 singles or shares). Fun fact: This villa sits on a property where The Sound of Music was written. The hills are alive indeed!

• Meaningful YOL signature service projects with local schools through the renowned Rockhouse Foundation

• Daily yoga and meditation to recharge body, mind and spirit

• Beach activities, snorkeling, cliff diving and an authentic Jamaican cooking class

• Healthy and gourmet breakfast and dinner each day, all transfers and taxes

Airfare to Montego Bay, alcoholic beverages and spa treatments not included.

Trip Leader - Nadine McNeil ()

Nadine, aka Universal Empress, is a change catalyst committed to global transformation. With over 20 years working for the United Nations primarily in operational roles in challenging locations, her own threat of burnout led her to yoga, initially as a self-care tool. Compelled to share its gifts with others in her birth-land Jamaica and beyond, she facilitates integrated workshops that combine her Sivananda, Kripalu and Baptiste trainings with writing. She serves as Director for the Jamaica Yoga Association (JAYA) and is a JADE Yoga ambassador. Currently, Nadine resides in Bali, where she teaches at the renowned Yoga Barn in Ubud.

Nadine will be assisted by a member of the YOL staff.

Logistics
1. When to arrive
It really comes down to flight schedules which can be somewhat limited. Ideally we want you to arrive by the latest 3PM, which will give you enough time to clear customs and immigration and then for us to get you to our Villa before nightfall. If you arrive earlier, say in the early morning, not to worry as you could spend the day at Doctor's Cove Beach which is STELLAR!

2. What time and how will folks get transported to and from airport to Hammerstein Highlands House?

We will provide more detail as the trip gets closer depending on everyone's flight arrivals. The timing will be as closely tailored as possible to your arrival times.

3. When to plan to leave
We will leave the Hammerstein House for Montego Bay Airport sometime mid-morning on November 13 depending on everyone's flights and it takes approximately 30 minutes to get to the airport.
