Hopkins, Belize

Ahhhh Belize….

Escape to a haven of adventure and relaxation and reconnect with yourself!  Whether you’d like to laze in the beautiful scenery at the beach or poolside, or to seek thrills with the wind in your hair, Metta School of Yoga presents you with nothing short of the perfect retreat experience. Enjoy unmatched comfort and create memories by joining us in paradise.

Come with us on a journey to beautiful Belize. The Belize Collections Resort in quaint Hopkins, Belize is a unique experience at one of the up-and-coming vacation destinations. Join us in nourishing your mind, body and spirit while exploring the hidden beauty of Belize.

Our mornings will begin with sunrise meditations for those that are early risers. Followed by a morning yoga session with a view of the amazing beach.

The morning practice will be followed by breakfast featuring outstanding local foods and recipes at the amazing resort restaurant. The days are yours to spend as you wish: at the pool and hot tub, lounging, using the spa services (they offer a full-service menu if you are interested), and a variety of ½ and full day amazing adventures Monday thru Friday, which can be booked once we arrive. These can include tours of Mayan ruins, snorkeling, barrier reef tours, cave tours, etc.

Our evenings will offer several types of optional classes throughout the week. We’ll close each day with dinner and sharing friendship on the beach. There are different meal packages that are offered. We would recommend mixing it up for lunch and dinner at some of the local establishments.

Please email for information on availablity, costs, lodging, food and airfare.


My many highlights on our retreat in Belize were first the yoga & meditation. The yoga practice was unmatched. It taught me something new every class and challenged me to a new level. The meditation allowed me peace & serenity, sealing my mind, body & spirit in complete gratitude and compassion. Sharing this space with new & old friends was an added plus.

I chose a beachfront room where I would wake up before sunrise and enjoy my coffee.

I did the ATM Mayan cave tour. It’s one not to miss. You are surrounded by spectacular sights throughout the cave. It’s really a travel back in time.

I also did the bio luminescence river tour.  The river lite up with colors of blue and green as the water was moved. You could follow the fish as they darted around the boat. The night sky was bright with stars without the interference of city lights.

One of the chefs, Cleveland, treated us to to the most tasty jalapeño and peanut soup when he heard me ask if soup was on the lunch menu. I asked that he not prepare anything special but he insisted. It was the best food I had!   – Joanne

“I attended the retreat in Belize 2023 sponsored by Meta School of Yoga.  Thank you Marcy and Ken for such a wonderful retreat.  I loved that you both could reach the trained and untrained in our daily yoga practice.  The Yoga times were absolutely perfectly timed for an exceptional experience in Belize.  I love your laid back, loving energy, even though I am full of questions.  I especially enjoyed the opt in or opt out of different activities without judgement as I know, deep inside,  your authentic desire is for me, to have the best time ever—-which I did!  💗 “
With Love, Jill.
I am looking forward to 2024

Pura Vida was a delightful experience!  The Vista room provided a breathtaking view of the central valley, both day and night.  The food was fresh and flavorful, especially using the various homemade sauces provided.  My daily turmeric tonic was delicious as well. The yoga was varied and enjoyable and I meditated daily for the first time! All of my spa treatments were unique, mindful and thoroughly enjoyable! Thank you!


The retreat to Costa Rica was a trip to the no judgment zone with fun, happy people embracing the world of healthy living.  I enjoyed amazing food, relaxing meditation, spa treatments, enlightening excursions and yoga; all of which has introduced me to a new, healthy and enjoyable way of life. Thank you!!


This retreat and mixture of people was just amazing! I loved every minute of it!  Everything from the people to the food to the excursions were just so much fun!  The yoga was awesome, the treatments were amazing and the staff was so thoughtful! This was my first yoga retreat experience and I will definitely be there for the next one! Thank you!!


This was such a wonderful leap of faith for me!  I didn’t know the group very well but based on the joy I always felt after classes at Shanteel, I was drawn to do something unlike I’ve never done before. What a fun group of people; so much laughter, some personal insights and hopefully some growth.  Great choices on excursions and spa treatments.  I am so glad I came.  Thank you!!


The resort was beautiful, it was well maintained and clean.  The food was excellent, fresh and well prepared. The excursions were fun and the pool area was great for socializing.  I stayed in a tentalow and enjoyed it very much and highly recommend.


The resort was surrounded by lush foliage and tropical flowers. I awoke each morning to the sound of birds singing, the smell of fresh coffee and guided meditation and yoga. The food was organic and the taste was exceptional.  Although I did not know many people on the retreat, I felt welcome and included. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a unique experience.
