Antigua and Barbuda’s yoga classes are popular

Antigua and Barbuda is attracting health conscious tourists through its Wellness Month in January and continuing with a series of retreats and exciting experiences for visitors throughout the year.

For many their New Year’s resolution embraces a wellness lifestyle. The Antigua and Barbuda Tourist Board is encouraging visitors to immerse themselves in complimentary ‘socarobics’ and Zumba classes, meditative yoga in the countryside, various hikes in lush hills and a variety of spa treatments. Visitors will enjoy healthy dining options utilising local produce in addition to other wellness offerings by providers throughout the country. Interested in going dry during the month of January with no alcohol? Antigua and Barbuda Tourism’s social media pages detail how to make the perfect mocktail.

Wellness continues to be a focus throughout the year in Antigua & Barbuda, with numerous activities planned to include:

In February, the focal point is Carlisle Bay for a three-night all-inclusive Wellness Retreat including daily mindful meditation, gentle yoga classes to suit all levels and abilities, daily activities including reef snorkelling at Cades Bay, a guided rainforest hike to Signal Hill and a local cooking demonstration. A mindfulness coach, holistic health practitioner and yoga instructor will guide creative and soulful yoga practices suitable for all levels. Carlisle Bay will also host a second wellness retreat in May.

For the super-fit, Antigua and Barbuda’s most anticipated marathon race returns on May 28. Runners from around the world join seasoned national athletes and fitness enthusiasts in Antigua for ‘Run in Paradise’. The race that traverses the colourful capital of St John’s and Antigua’s north coast offers one of the most scenic courses in the world. Distances of a marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k run/walk offer an activity for all skill levels. Friends and family can cheer on the runners and stay for the fun as the race concludes at the historic Fort James beach.
