Program

Sustainable changes

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.

Doing your part

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.

Retreat location

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.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

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.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 50% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid on arrival.
