Yoga Retreat in the Dominican Republic

Self Care Yoga Retreat

Join me in Dominican this December at the most charming yoga retreat centre you will find. Located right on a beautiful sand beach with brightly coloured water, the yoga shala faces the ocean yet gives you shelter from the sun. 


Between the beach and the pool, you will have no issues chillin’ the days away with a book and a smoothie if that is what you are looking for. On the other hand, with the number of activities here you could spend the whole week and not try them all. SUP yoga is available right in the pool, or take yourself way out of your comfort zone and try a circus class. There are many to choose from. Horseback riding can be arranged, and we also have included a tour of the organic farm capped off with a river tubing experience. Yes you read that right.

Your daily meals are farm to table right from the Yoga Loft’s own organic farm. Your meals will be healthy, fresh and delicious.  An emphasis on self-care for this 7 night retreat, so that you can take what you need and leave at home what you don’t. This is all about you. Fill your bucket. Return home feeling full, invigorated, refreshed, and full of love.
