Master the tools to make sustainable, healthy lifestyle changes in our Caribbean Weightloss Camp for adults. We don’t like the term “Fat Camp”. Our approach is to kick start positive long term habits adapted to you as an individual. You will not only lose weight but also gain self esteem and have fun while embarking on your weightloss journey. Your program will be custom tailored around you and geared to your needs. We’re looking for long term success, so we don’t do weigh-ins and no one is going to judge if you have a fall back.
The accommodation options are on private room and double room basis. The beach-front accommodations will be at the eXtreme Hotel. The hotel 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 keywords are evolution and fun.
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, the 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.
The goal is to teach you the tools to take your new lifestyle home with you. Sustainable weight loss and long term changes requires that you have an understanding of what to do and why, so that you can maintain your new lifestyle long after you’ve left the retreat.
The Yoga Loft believes that healthy changes can me made naturally and that practiced regularly with the loving support, healthy changes will become long-term habits that you will take with you into the rest of your life. On this transformational holiday, you’ll learn and practice healthy eating habits, mindfulness, functional workouts, and de-stressing practices, as well as how to integrate these tools into your daily life. The secret of your success it two-fold:
One: The Yoga Loft believes everyone is an individual. Therefore, your program will be custom tailored around you, your work life, your history of fitness, your body type, and your specific needs. Your initial assessment begins long before you arrive, after which the team of experts will put together a program uniquely customized to help you reach your goals.
Two: The Yoga Loft believes that everything about a person, including their emotional state and personal history, can affect their current lifestyle. Therefore, their approach to making a positive long term changes is holistic. The programs encompass nutrition and fitness, as well as emotional and spiritual well-being for real and long-term changes.
The Yoga Loft doesn’t want to tell you it’s all going to be easy. Creating change can be hard work. Weight loss doesn’t happen overnight, and bad habits aren’t kicked without a fight. That’s why they're here for you for whatever you might need. We're looking for long term success, so you don’t do weigh-ins and no one is going to attack you if you have a fall back. The Yoga Loft is here to support you in moving forwards.
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. 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.
Chrissy Lefavour began teaching yoga in 2012 and continued to teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Kids yoga. She completed her RYT 500-hour certification in early 2014. In addition to teaching classes around Central Vermont, Chrissy became involved with yoga with horses, SUP yoga, and leading yoga retreats internationally. A born traveler, Chrissy brought her first group of yogis to the Dominican Republic in 2016 and was immediately in love with the combination of yoga, Caribbean lifestyle, fresh food, and the amazing activities offered at The Yoga Loft, Cabarete.
Jeremy is NASM certified personal trainer. His main focus as a trainer and coach and what he takes pride in is creating personalised, customised programs. These programs are designed to help clients reach their fitness goals with a focus on correct faulty movement patterns and muscle imbalances through restorative exercise. He has a love and passion for fitness and living a healthy and active life style. Jeremy grew up playing team sports such as basketball and football. For him, the best part about working as a trainer is seeing people come down to Cabarete and seeing them transform not only
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.
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 nutrition program is pretty special, as the beachfront restaurant is supplied by eXteme Hotel's very own organic farm (in which you will take a tour). This means that you'll always have the highest quality and freshest ingredients on hand, so you’re always getting nutrient dense meals to maximize your energy, and thus your happiness.
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.
A complimentary sports massage is included in the price. Relax and enjoy a professional massage. The massage room is next to the yoga loft to help heal your body from the aches and pains. Multiple types of massages are available.
Punta Cana International Airport
Transfer not provided
Gregorio Luperón International Airport
Transfer not provided
Las Américas International Airport
Transfer not provided
Transfer from and to the airport is available upon request. 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.
