Jean-Baptiste Belledent is a French yogipreneur based in Mexico where he cofounded and currently runs Xinalani, one of the world's leading yoga retreat centers. After 8 hectic busy years in Paris, he felt the urge to start a meaningful and eco-sustainable venture to promote mind-body balanced lifestyles. Pretty much at the same moment did he attend his first yoga class: it didn't take long before he connected the dots and drew with fellow entrepreneurs the purpose of a lifetime: creating an awe inspiring transformational haven on a tropical pristine beach. JB is a strong advocate of finding freedom through entrepreneurship and healthy habits. He practices yoga as a way of life and competes in several triathlons each year just for the heck of it. He's also the father of two amazing toddlers and the happy husband of Ana Paula, a beautiful Mexican yogini, partner in business and in life.
