We’re proud to work exclusively with the granddaughter of the world renowned Don Elijio Panti and heir to generations of healing knowledge, Rosario Panti – the region’s last Mayan Shaman. She began training at the tender age of seven (7), learning about the earth’s cycles and the healing powers of the rainforest. When her grandfather passed away, he left his experience and knowledge in the capable hands of Rosario who had at this time walked in his footsteps and worked alongside him for over twenty (20) years. Witness as she embraces her culture and tradition as she performs mystical blessings and rituals as well as presides over healing ceremonies where physical and spiritual worlds meet. Mayan Healing is structured by elements such as air, earth, fire, prayer and water to cleanse, cure, purify, release and restore the channels that unite balance, energy and health to life.

Immerse yourself in the tropical paradise that is Belize, exploring remnants of the Maya – ancient cities and exhilarating caves – while becoming one with the rainforest and its inhabitants. More than a vacation, Belize is a state of being; a place where your senses come alive and you find yourself not just living, but savoring every moment.
Co-created with the region’s last Mayan Shaman and deeply inspired by the sacred natural surroundings of the Belizean land, rituals and traditions, this Holistic Healing Retreat will encourage you to explore how you can live in harmony as well as find balance within yourselves and with all life in your midst. Offering both Sunrise and Sunset sessions either on Ka’ana’s on-site Yoga Pavilion or on scenic settings, such as the Ball Court in the ancient Maya City of Xunantunich and the Banks of the Mopan River, the rich content woven through this comprehensive retreat will be embodied through the practice of yoga. The physical exploration of yoga poses (asana) in a flow-based approach will build over the natural arc of the retreat and will serve to clear excess stagnation and stress, creating the space for abundance, vitality and a deep sense of peace.

As a Reservations Clerk and the first point of contact for prospective clients seeking an unforgettable Belize, as well as Ka’ana experience, I was compelled to discover what the Life Altering Experience with Rosario Panti was all about. Yes, I had read her biography and had heard stories about what she does – some intriguing, others unbelievable. I had also read that Mayan Healing is holistic healing, with full awareness that the body, emotions, environment, mind and spirit are all interconnected. Curious to know this mysterious woman’s healing ability I made an appointment with her.
During the first few minutes of the massage we were both quiet as her hands worked their way from my head to my toes. Some may find this massage intense, but I actually enjoyed it. She then broke the heavy silence by stating that I’ve taken great care of my body and that I should continue to do so. I extended her my gratitude and we both fell silent again. After a few minutes had passed she told me something about my personal life that piqued my interest since only three (3) other close relations know something so intimate. Even though I was taken aback, I smiled and awaited her further comments. It was at that point that I began to believe that this woman was indeed gifted and knew what she was doing. Throughout the remainder of the massage she complimented me on my good energy and health.
Having finished with the massage, she looked at her sastun as if though she could examine inside my body through it, after which she mentioned two important elements in my life that I was preoccupied with. It was as if she brought my feelings, my insecurities and my thoughts to life yet her words were very reassuring. Rosario genuinely made me see my life’s direction and purpose if I remain true to myself. In addition, the energy I felt after the massage was amazing! I would certainly recommend, without hesitation, a healing session with Rosario Panti to those who are looking for a truly life altering experience!

On March 2, 2011 Ka’ana Boutique Resort was featured on USA Today Travel – a web portal devoted to offer its online members and other internet users with tips on travel. The article, Spa Vacations In Belize, features Belize as an ideal destination and setting for a spa retreat as the title implies. The overview mentions that this country “blends the best of both worlds” so travelers can experience both sides to the “Belizean Coin”.
It emphasizes Ka’ana’s use of natural ingredients, from its two-acre on-site organic garden, for the treatments performed at its personal spa. Finally, traditional Mayan Healing with the region’s last Mayan Shaman – Rosario Panti – is also noted within the write-up.
