I look forward with all my heart to welcoming you to Treasure Beach, my Om Away from Home in Jamaica, a very special place on the South Coast that I call my spiritual home. This tiny little fishing village has been a part of me since I was in my early 20’s when I used to come down and help my amazing family friend Jason Henzell, along with his incredible parents Perry and Sally, build their dream and now world famous, Jakes Hotel that Conde Nast Traveler calls “A Treasure Beach institution, the family-run Jakes is more than a boutique hotel; it’s the heart and soul of the community”. In 1995, when I started my aromatherapy company, Starfish Oils, I moved into Jakes (at that time it was just a couple of rooms) to spend time practicing Yoga as a newly certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher and creating my line of scented candles, soaps and oils…the energy there was and still is so full of Shakti-that creative life force in all of us that longs to be free. It was a wonderful time and it was then that I committed to finding a place in Treasure Beach to call my own. Finally, 11 years ago, my dream came true and my hubby and I bought a sweet little 2 bedroom cottage a few minutes walk from Jakes, right on the water and named it Shakti Home in honor of my Shakti Yoga Center in Kingston. Its been 11 years of love and dedication to fix this little house up to a 3 bedroom beauty with a pool and yoga deck that is truly the beach house that you've been dreaming about. We will split our time during the retreat between Jakes with their funky rooms, gorgeous yoga deck and spa where you will stay and Shakti Home where will swim in the sea, have healing treatments and practice radical self care. What I want for you is what I would want for me on a retreat. Not only do I want to share the best of Jamaica with you, you will have 5 life changing days of twice daily Yoga Classes, one vigorous to get the blood flowing and the other, gentle and restorative with a long meditation. Delicious, clean, island food, wonderful spa treatments, bike rides, long hikes, boat rides, body scrubs on the beach and plenty of time in between to do absolutely nothing but curl up in a hammock or bask in the sun. I want you to experience to be just taken care of by people who understand how valuable it is to receive, to be nurtured, to be elevated. I want you to breathe, relax, let go and allow your life to flow. I want for you to leave this retreat feeling rested, rejuvenated and with your cup filled and overflowing with love. And that is exactly what you will get. I hope you will be able to give yourself this gift of just letting go and allowing yourself to just breathe and BE. It wont be a struggle, Treasure Beach has a way of magically speeding up the slowing down process, so you get to a state of being blissfully fully present really fast. It’s really wonderful to see how quickly you unwind here. I want to share this magic with you. I hope you let me take you on this journey of self discovery, right back to who you truly are.
Live Love, Sharon

DAILY SCHEDULE This is what our schedule for the retreat looks like. While it may be subject to minor changes, it gives you a basic idea of how your days will unfold while on retreat: when you can expect to practice and when you can participate in other activities or simply relax
Should I bring a towel? Jakes Hotel provides towels for beach and bathing.
Should I bring my own yoga mat? You don’t need to bring any of your yoga stuff…they have all of it there!
I have dietary restrictions, can Jakes Hotel accommodate them? In our experience, Jakes Hotel has been very accommodating to students with specific dietary needs. Please let us know ahead of time so that we can communicate to the Jakes Hotel culinary staff.
Do I tip at Jakes Hotel? There is a $60 fee added to your bill which covers gratuities for the employees of Jakes Hotel (you are welcome to change that number so that it’s less or more, at your discretion). That fee does not cover tips for massage therapists or the boat tour. Other tips to consider during this retreat are small tips for shuttle drivers who are not employees of Jakes Hotel, and tips for activity leaders/guides should you decide to go on a hike or boat tour.
Can I drink the water there? Yes! The water in Jamaica is very safe to drink and you can refill your water bottle daily at Jakes.
Do I need an adapter to plug in? Jakes Hotel has two-prong outlets, just like the ones in the US.
Do I need a passport to travel to Jamaica? Yes, you do.
