Austrian-born Carina had her first yoga experience at the age 16. She started practicing Hatha yoga before going on extended trips to Asia, which inspired her to take yoga to new and dynamic levels. Through her unique training, Carina’s classes are taking a very somatic approach, connecting the mind to the body and unraveling and unfolding all the layers of your being. You will practice flowing sequences with a strong focus on the breath and the dynamics in the body. You will chant, practice pranayama (breath work), and release what no longer serves you in deeply healing evening workshops.

The Samana OceanView was an excellent venue; the scenery and facilities were lovely. You stay in a little cottage with amazing views. The pool area is a main attraction; always well maintained with a tremendous outlook. The yoga studio is like none you've known - it looked out over the bay. We had great weather, which obviously helped. The food was healthy and delicious; they combined specific foods we'd asked for (our group had vegans, vegetarians, lactose intolerant people which were catered for well) with local foods.
The people were friendly and very accommodating; excellent service.

"One week in Paradise"
Caribe Yoga in Samana is a perfect location to re-connect to yourself in a paradise-like environment: remotely located on top of a hill, surrounded by the dominican forest, with a breath-taking view on Samana bay, Joerg and his team found a perfect spot to build a wonderful resort. There are only few cabins embedded in an beautiful garden, a nice pool and a wonderful yoga room facing the ocean and the forest.
Lovely Larissa, Mark, all other yogis and everyone working there created a unique loving environment, and the chef delicious meals evey day. The yoga teachers Parisa and Alyssa inspired me to further explore yoga, improve my practice and re-connect to myself after a stressful time. Thank you all for this unforgettable vacation.
