This retreat is for the explorers, adventurers and for souls that are hungry for life and experience. Wake up every morning in your private bungalow nestled in the hills of the Dominican Republic with the most stunning view over the Caribbean ocean. Practice daily yoga and meditation on the stunning deck overlooking the ocean, sample local Caribbean delights and dive into the turquoise ocean just minutes away from the resort. This week will make you feel alive, connected and filled with joy!

Yoga is a practice that will adapt to you – not the other way around. This retreat is especially created to convey the fact that yoga is so much more than just a posture. Everybody is welcome regardless of skill level, even if they have never done yoga before. Anyone who would like to have a personal practice, customized to their preferences, will benefit greatly from this experience. Even those who are already on an advanced level (that would like something more challenging than a normal yoga class) can benefit from learning how to live the philosophy of yoga in their daily life.

During this retreat, you will live an experience to harmonize your body and soul. Totally unwind, let your mind go, and relax while your body immersed in the perfect combination of restfulness and motion-free from external influences. This retreat offers daily yoga practices and interaction with the yoga instructors and like-minded fellow travelers in the incredible picture landscapes.

Yoga is rather a way of life which is about compassion, mindfulness, and truthfulness. The atmosphere on this retreat is quiet and, except for the daily yoga hours, your time is your own to read, swim, sleep, and enjoy. Much emphasis is placed on healthy, diverse, and fresh food to accompany the experience.

The yoga classes will be tailored to the group with the chance to have a private lesson with Jess as well as your group sessions.

    Additional Things to do Review Like

    Waterfall El Limon

    Horse riding to the waterfall El Limon and swimming in sweet water
    Included in the price! Trip to the waterfall El Limon including horse riding
    The waterfall “Salto El Limon” is located amidst a lush tropical landscape on the peninsula of Samaná, approximately an hour away from Las Galeras. This spectacular waterfall drops 150 feet into a natural, beautiful pool filled with fresh, crystal clear water.
    You can reach the top of the waterfall on horseback, then hike downwards through tropical jungle until you reach the bottom of this roaring cascade, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the big natural pool.

    Tour by Boat thru different beaches

    Included in the price! The bay of Samaná is one of the most beautiful areas in Dominican Republic with its magnificent beaches, of soft sand and turquoise waters.

    With this tour by boat we will visit some of the most delightful beaches of the peninsula.
    After the beach tour, the trip continues by boat to Playa Fronton, one pristine beach, where we will have time to relax, and have something to eat. At Playa Fronton we start the hike, we will explore the undiscovered treasures of the Samaná peninsula.
    The hike which we will take for approximately 2 hours to Boca del Diablo, will give you the opportunity to walk along the unspoiled coastline, discover different fruits and vegetables while hiking along the cultivable land. At this point, you can take a taxi back to the resort, or continue with an uphill hike which will give you a glimpse of the life at the village La Guazuma.

    And for the end we will pass by a Marmol Mine.

    Beach Day Playita

      This is a spectacular, small and private resort where you can relax, unwind and totally escape in the natural beauty of your surroundings. The accommodations, pool, food, staff, panoramic scenic views and owner are ALL top notch. I attended an AMAZING one week Yoga retreat there and it was the vacation of a lifetime!!!! In between our peaceful yoga sessions overlooking the mountains AND ocean we also visited beautiful beaches, rode horses to swim in a breath taking waterfall and hiked vigorously through the jungle/mountains as well. Truly a wonderful experience and great value, worth every penny and more!

      My husband and I really enjoyed this hidden gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The owner Jorg is a wonderful and selfless person who went out of the way to please us – whether it be special veggie food or wine after a long hike. The scenery is spectacular and the pool is wonderful. Staff are attentive and cheerful. Lots to do in surrounding areas including the best beach! Doing yoga amidst the nature was truly magical.
