Overview
More
The Karma Shack offers daily yoga classes for all levels. Swedish, Deep Tissue and Shiatsu massages, foot reflexology, facial acupressure or energy balancing sessions can be booked at your preferred time. The seclusion of a beautiful garden close to the beach makes your yoga or massage session extra relaxing! Follow the blue and white signs that point the way to the Karma Shack! New this year will be individual customised wellness retreats, offered from May thru September. These retreats are meant for individuals, couples or small groups of friends, to unplug, detox, relax and find empowerment in self care. A basic program of daily yoga and meditation sessions can be expanded with healing sessions and lectures or workshops. Learn about healthy habits, natural products and simple healing techniques. Silence or digital detox retreats are also available. Design your retreat to fit your needs and budget. Not-so-interested partners may enjoy a dive course, kite-boarding or fishing instead.

Both my partner and I each got a massage and did a yoga class. Would recommend to others and would be back if ever on Little Corn again.
