Jamaica is hosting its first ever Caribbean Yoga Conference Feb. 2-5 in Montego Bay, bringing together people from around the world who are inspired by the practice of yoga. Instructors will include Seane Corn, Simon Park, Toni Bergins and Sadie Nardini, and the music of MC Yogi and his band.
Behind it all is Kim Moon, who first started by developing a yoga consulting business, Bella Luna Yoga, offering resorts help with creating yoga programs, kicking off with places like Club Med.
The latest one with Jamaica includes a community outreach component: In partnership with Shakti Mind Body Fitness in Kingston, Jamaica, the conference will give a Shakti Love Scholarship, inviting Jamaican youth counselors, social workers and teachers to the conference at no cost.
The conference cost is $345 per person, and it will be at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Montego Bay, which is offering a noninclusive group room rate of $239.93 a night to conference participants (the resort's usual all-inclusive rate is $291 for a single room, $343 for double occupancy). Conference cost includes all events, selected classes, morning meditations, noon yoga sessions, evening events and keynote and closing addresses.
