There’s no feeling quite like sleeping between the cool sheets of a crisp, freshly made bed. A good night’s sleep can do wonders for your mind, body, and soul.

You will be accommodated in a luxury villa of single, double, or triple occupancy.

At Casa de Campo, the contemporary comforts and luxurious conveniences mean you’ll wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The Tuscan style villa is beautiful and it features four two double bedrooms with private bath each facing the spacious garden and pool area. There are also fine living and dining spaces, a gazebo, jacuzzi, sauna, pool and barbecue.

A spa meditation room and reclining areas to enjoy both sun and zen are also there. It's only ten minute energy walk to Minita's crystalline beach.

Picture yourself in a place with lush vegetation, white sand beaches bathed by the crystalline waters of the Caribbean Sea, and lodging in prime quality accommodations. Add to this the exclusivity of a qualified staff looking after you, providing a personalized treatment that includes a detoxifying diet, holistic therapies, and yogic activities that promote the dialogue between your body and your energy.

At the same time you can visit beautiful locations and do fun excursions to discover the unspoiled nature around. This program is called holistic holidays.

Yoga experience

Throughout your stay on the retreat, you will immerse yourself in a total relaxation, shut out external noise, and connect to your inner voice. There will be a unique yoga experience daily in a luxury villa in the Caribbean. Guided by professional instructors, you will practice and learn multiple yoga disciplines and techniques including Hatha yoga and yoga Nidra. Aside from that, you will also explore pranayama, stretching, relaxation techniques.

Hatha yoga

In the language of Sanskrit, “ha” means sun, and “tha” means moon. The practice of Hatha yoga is the unification of opposites - of the sun and the moon, of the body and the mind.

Hatha is the physical component of yoga, practicing body poses or “asanas”, and the root of all other types of yoga. It’s a quiet, restful practice, incorporating mild physical exercises with breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation.

It allows the individual practicing to learn more about oneself, providing resources to resolve everyday situations, overcoming physical, mental, and emotional limits

Yoga Nidra

Experience a unique final relaxation where your swing becomes a chrysalis. With your legs inverted, you are promoting blood and lymph circulation and the equilibrium of your body systems. In this restorative position, you will experience a mineral stone and aromatherapy treatment, closing your unique experience with a golden seal.

Meditation

Through meditation, you will learn how to create silence inside your minds and discover innate peace, harmony, and happiness. Meditation is an ancient practice that allows you to explore the vast capabilities of the mind. It is practiced by sitting or lying in a comfortable position without distractions and focusing on one’s mind and how it functions, taking the position of the “observer.” This is a practice that can be achieved through patience and perseverance.

Pranayama

The prana, or life energy, nourishes both body and mind. At the physical level, it manifests as your breathing while mentally, it is the psychic activity. Through pranayama, you can re-orient and consciously channel this vital energy, allowing it to flow freely throughout the body system.

During the practice, the powerful boost of the universal energy that flows through your breathing is brought into your consciousness, a process that many consider involuntary. Science has shown that the pace and quality of breath is altered according to one’s emotional state. Through pranayama you will notice the profound relationship between breathing and mental activity.

  • Davide Sciortino

    David has always been convinced that his way was to help people find their own external and internal balance, although at first he did not know how. After high school, he looked for a new way to study, where he could find the tools to better understand himself and people around him. Naturopathy has been a revelation to Davide. His life changed and he knew that this was his path and there was no turning back. But he found his real passion in shiatsu (master of the school of naturopathy).

  • Maria Testillano

    Since Maria was a little girl, equality between people was a matter of vital importance for her. Being able to help the unprivileged has always been the best satisfaction she could get from life. In order to achieve this goal, Maria studied law, embracing the rights of the less privileged. Maria traveled the world, owned a business, but especially and above all, her greatest interest was the human being and his minimum health and wellness conditions. This feeling gets stronger each day and turned Maria to the techniques that accompany her today on her way as a therapist and yoga instructor.

Your luxury retreat will be located on Casa de Campo, along the south coast of the the Dominican Republic.

    "if you want to truly have a relaxing vacation experience, you have got to visit Toque Holistico! Davide and Maria are absolutely Wonderful. They picked us up and brought us to the studio where we were greeted with an amazing view of the ocean, fresh fruit and an delicious assortment of teas. We immediately felt welcomed with their warm hospitality. We had booked a private session consisting of three different types of yogic techniques consisting of hatha, meridian and aero. What an enlightening experience! This is by far the best way to enjoy some time to relax! Highly recommend!!!"

    "I attended the 3 part yoga retreat and loved every minute of it. Maria and Davide are two of the kindest people you will ever meet. I am a 57 year old woman who loves yoga but has trouble to let go when trying new things. They were both so awesome leading me through the practice. I so want to go back now that i know with their guidance it can lead to an awesome practice. The studio is so lovely by the ocean. Super clean and welcoming. They serve the nicest fruit and delicious tea. Treat yourself to one of their classes, you won't be disappointed. I want to give a special mention to one of their teachers who teaches at Zoetry Punta Cana five times a week. Ashley was the one who suggested the retreat and was so awesome as a yoga teacher that it made me want to go to the retreat. Ashley is a great representative for your company."

    "Toque Holistico has the best ambiance of any yoga studio I have ever been in. Just imagine laying on your mat listening to the crashing waves and smelling salt in the air. It really is incredible. The huge windows are left open during class and the ocean breeze fills the room. "

    ""

    "The owners of the studio and the instructors are so welcoming and professional. It is clear that they put their hearts and souls in to making the experience inclusive and positive for all yogis. After travelling solo for a month I was really craving community and some serious healing. Toque Holistico helped me restore my body and mind. I am so thankful I went to the studio."

    "I am amazed. Not only by the center, but by its founders and classes. What they offer here is truly life changing. Eight months ago I went to my first class and I have not stopped since. They offer an array of different classes and seminars. I couldn't decide which I wanted more so I decide to try them all! I spend anywhere from two to three hours a day here and all I can say is it has drastically and holistically changed my life, my being, my sense of self, and my perspective on life. From yoga to stretching, shiatsu, aero Pilates, aero fitness and aero yoga. I have been able to get in shape mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I have grown as a person and I no longer have difficulty sleeping, I no longer feel stressed at work and I feel more concentrated and empowered in all aspects of life. I highly recommend this place. With its ocean front view and serene wave sounds, you can truly lose yourself and find yourself all at the same time."

I had the opportunity to attend the aero yoga and gentle yoga classes and also, the 3-hour retreat conducted by lovely and knowledgeable instructors. Such a peaceful environment facing the Caribbean Sea. Many thanks, Maria and Davide, for making my stay in Punta Cana so special and full of good energy!"
