Embrace nature and let’s get in shape! Most classes will be taking place out side – No AC.

No judgment!

About Guadeloupe Islands
Framed by the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the French overseas department of Guadeloupe Islands is located between Antigua and Dominica and is comprised of five islands connected by an efficient inter-island network. When it comes to preserving its authentic way of life and protecting its rainforest, mountains, beaches, and coral ecosystem, Guadeloupe Islands have been ahead of the game for decades. The result is an entirely preserved environment offering today with its 55,105 acres of Natural Reserve, the most diverse scenery in the whole Caribbean. Premiere destination for Ecotourists, godsend for outdoorsy types and definitely a heaven for foodies since French Import have made dining on the islands a true delight. In Guadeloupe Islands we are Naturally Active, just our Volcano is not!
