8 Days New Year Meditation and Yoga Holiday in Dominican Republic

Extreme Hotel, Carretera, Sosua Cabarete, Kite Beach, Cabarete, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

Self-Awareness Through Exploration Yoga Retreat in Dominican Republic

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.

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

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.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 25% of the total price.
