Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Dominican Republic.
During this New Year Yoga Retreat, we will focus on self-awareness through exploration. Self-awareness is all about what makes you tick: your emotions, sensations, triggers, likes, dislikes, thoughts and beliefs. Through a daily yoga practice and a range of group activities we will safely explore our current state of being and where we would like to direct our intentions for the year 2020.
Resolutions always trend around the New Year and while they may work for some, sometimes we NEED to get away from our daily distractions in order to reconnect with our roots.
There are some lessons that only you can teach yourself. If you have reached a stagnant routine in your day to day life or feel out of touch with your intuition and desires, it may be time to seek different experiences. Lessons are hidden in the unknown. Exploring the unknown leads to self-awareness and reflection.
This retreat is designed to safely explore our relationship with ourselves and the world around us. Our morning yoga practice will feature a rejuvenating morning sequence of physical postures with a morning meditation. Our evening class will be a restorative sequence at our loft space overlooking the sunset at Kite Beach. Everyday will feature a group activity and/or excursion following our intention for the day. This retreat is open to yogis and yoginis of all levels, beginners are welcomed.
The eXtreme Hotel Cabarete is one of the leading ecologically sustainable small hotels in the Caribbean. Extreme is more than just an adventure sports and fitness hotel, it is a place where the values of sustainable and ecological tourism are forefront, the community is thriving, and the key words are evolution and fun. Voted number two on Trip Advisor in Cabarete, the eXtreme Hotel is the perfect place to meet amazing people and have an incredible holiday in tropical paradise.
Perched on the second floor overlooking the ocean is the magnificent and tranquil yoga loft. Services and amenities include various classes, yoga mats, yoga blocks, and other useful equipment. It’s a quiet and peaceful place with a beautiful canna roof where you can find your inner chi.
It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned yogi, our friendly and helpful instructors will give you a yoga workout that is both fun, enjoyable, and relaxing, with the gentle lapping waves in the background. Combine a yoga class with a cross fit class, personal training session, kite boarding session, or surfing and you’ll have a well-rounded day followed by a deep sleep.
You will also have an opportunity to learn about and enjoy Dominican culture—all while supporting local innovators in sustainability and wellness. At The Yoga Loft, they have a mission of making sustainability accessible through conscious tourism that promotes local empowerment. They will stay at the eXtreme Hotel, a solar-powered, eco sports hotel right on Kite Beach, Cabarete. The Taino Organic Farm, a community and educational center, will provide local and nutritious food for our breakfast and dinners.
There’s plenty more to explore in Cabarete, a small coastal town in the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, which is known for its various sports and outdoor activities. It is the ideal location for a sunny Caribbean beach getaway that will encourage reflection on a personal level and as a collective of human beings on this earth. You will have daily down time to explore local spots and the nightlife, if you wish.
This half day experience will teach you about aquaponics and sustainable agriculture, as well as get you into the local culture of rural Dominican Republic. The Taino organic farm grows a variety of fruit, vegetables, and super foods which you’ll be able to taste fresh off the trees during your tour.
After the farm tour, be ready to head down to the beautiful Yasica River. The cooling fresh waters will be your guide as you float peacefully downstream from 1 to 2 hours. Adventurists are invited to scramble up a jungle side cliff and jump from an overhanging tree into the crystal waters below. Afterwards you’ll enjoy a lunch prepared from fresh organic produce.
Growing up, playing basketball and swimming, I always had an interest in fitness and health. I loved the feeling of being connected and at ease with my body. In 2015, I underwent open-heart surgery and found myself longing for a way to reconnect with all parts of my being. Yoga has helped me heal and helped me find inner strength. I completed my 200 Hour Teacher Training at the Goodyoga yoga school in Brooklyn, NY, with a focus on Alignment and Anatomy followed by a 300HR advanced teaching mentorship. I strive to encourage my students to listen to their bodies as they move towards growth.
Due to the active, modern community who frequents Cabarete, the town is full of healthy eating options, ecological businesses, and sustainable tourism. Cabarete is home to a lively international community that supports local development through private business operations and NGO’s.
The center of Cabarete is full of international restaurants, bars, live music venues, and much more. The surrounding areas are full of amazing nature, outdoor adventures, and natural beauty to be discovered.
The Yoga Loft believes that how you feed your body is as much of a part of a yogic life as breathing. The food served during this retreat is made from organic, natural, farm fresh ingredients. The Yoga Loft are very lucky to be supplied by their own Taino organic farm.
The menus have been carefully planned to provide fuel and energy to keep you exploring. Every bit of food is prepared with love and is to be enjoyed with just as much zealous pleasure as that with which it was created.
Please let The Yoga Loft know if you have any dietary restrictions. They can cater to vegetarians and those on gluten and lactose restricted diets, however they unfortunately don’t have the ability to cater to vegans or raw foodies at this time.
Relax and enjoy a professional massage. You can choose from Thai, Swiss, and deep tissue massage. The massage room is right next to the yoga loft to help heal your body from the aches and pains. Multiple types of massages available.
The Yoga Loft has four airports that you could fly into. Each one has its own pluses and minuses, so they like to leave guests to decide what works best to balance their budget and travel style.
Gregorio Luperón International Airport (POP) is about 30 minutes away, and a 35 USD taxi ride (taxi seats four). It is a local airport but it is as close as you could possibly get to Extreme Hotel, so if you want to fly into here you’ll have to book your international flight into Santo Dominigo or Punta Cana and get a small connecting plane to Puerto Plata.
Cibao International Airport (STI) is one and a half hours away, and about 100 USD by taxi. It is an international airport, however flights are frequently more expensive into Santiago than into Santo Domingo or Punta Cana.
Las Américas International Airport (SDQ) is four hours away, and is about a 200 USD taxi from Extreme. There are a lot of international flights to Santo Domingo, and coming from Santo Domingo you also have the option of taking the local bus (about 20 USD) instead of a taxi. This is a good option for budget travelers.
Punta Cana International Airport is seven hours away and is a 400 USD taxi ride. The downside of Punta Cana is both the distance and the expense, but the upside is that it is one of the nicest airports in the Caribbean due to the large number of private flights that arrive there, so if you are nervous about flying, Punta Cana might be a good option for you. Also Punta Cana is a resort city, so there are frequently flight deals to there that might offset the taxi ride if you’re sharing the fare.
