You will have access to unlimited trapeze and other circus arts such as hoops or silks to be arranged by request. Safety is always first, so if you are a first timer you can relax and know that you are in great hands.

Tour of Taino organic farm

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.

River tubing at Yasica River

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.

  • Victoria Acland

    Marisa has studied yoga for more than 10 years, including lineages such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, Para, Tantra, Dharma, and many others. The exposure to so many types of yoga has helped her form a unique teaching style, which focuses on strength, alignment, and breath, but most importantly about finding the path of ease and doing what is right for your body.

The retreat will be held in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. Cabarete is best known as one of the world’s meccas for kite boarding. The sport is popular due to the consistent winds nearly year round, so it is one of the best places to learn, practice, and perfect the sport. Cabarete however, has so much to offer beyond kiting.

It also is a fantastic surf location for both beginners and advanced surfers with waves reaching double overhead in the fall when the wind dies down. Most of the breaks are coral based, making the perfect formation when the conditions are right. Cabarete also has horseback riding, beautiful lagoons for paddle boarding, and waterfalls to be explored.

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 non-government organizations.

The center of Cabarete is full of international restaurants, bars, live music venues, and much more. The Yoga Loft believes in living a balanced life, so for those who enjoy the nightlife as well as the day, you would not be short of options.

All breakfasts and dinners are included in the retreat. 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 is made from organic, natural, farm fresh, and unaltered ingredients supplied by the Yoga Loft's own Taino organic farm.

The menu is carefully planned to provide fuel and energy to your body to keep it running at its top level. Every bit of food is prepared with love and will be enjoyed with just as much zealous pleasure as that with which it was created. The Yoga Loft can cater to vegetarians and those on gluten and lactose restricted diets, however, unfortunately they do not have the ability to cater to vegans or raw foodies yet.
