      Had an incredible experience with DDY!

      YTT with DDY is amazing! I learned more than I ever thought I would -- about yoga, but also about myself. The safe and accepting community of DDY YTT is like nothing else. I walked away teaching with confidence and a hunger to keep learning and growing! Immersing ourselves at the Dominican Treehouse Village was a truly wonderful, unique, and life-changing experience.

      This retreat was expertly planned in one of the most unique properties I have ever experienced. The yoga, food and excursions were top notch. We had a very nice balance of activities vs down time, which I appreciated. It felt adventurous but relaxing at the same time. Shelly and her staff exude a warm, wonderful vibe and you immediately feel that you are 'part of the family'. I met some fantastic women on this trip and some lovely locals. Honestly, this retreat couldn't have been any better. I am already looking at my next DDY Travels retreat for 2023!

      Trip of a lifetime. Had such a wonderful experience at the Dominican Treehouse Village. The location is beautiful, food was delicious, and the excursions were fun and well thought out. Yoga twice a day and the wonderful staff at the Dominican Treehouse Village were the cherry on top. Cannot recommend enough.

      This was everything I expected and more. The programming and instruction was solid, insightful, accessible to all. There was just enough down time - I didn't ever feel extremely exhausted - it was well balanced (Shelley is flexible and meets the group where they are at). The best part was by far the amazing people and energy. My graduating class is filled with the most beautiful individuals I've ever seen in one place. The entire experience, from the accommodations and welcoming staff, to the great food, beautiful beaches and fun excursions, and most importantly kickass yoga... was a time I will never forget. I fulfilled my dream of officially becoming a yoga instructor and I couldn't have asked for a better journey to get there.

      I was fortunate enough to complete my YTT at the Dominican Tree House Village in El Valle, Samana. I am so thankful for Shelley and being able to share my yoga story. Shelley is a woman of many virtues but my favorite is her being able to hold space for diverse populations in yoga (BIPOC/LGBTQIA+). I was supported during my learning journey, and encouraged throughout my training to continue to create space for other individuals like myself. Our training was well organized, detail oriented, knowledgeable, and a healthy balance between learning, resting, and adventure! I was paired with the best roommate and suite mates ever! I am terrified of being in the jungle but knowing I was there with three other women, made it so worth while. Finally, Emma made the most amazing Dominican cuisine for us daily and the Tree House Staff were so hospitable. I would absolutely go on another training/retreat with Shelley and the crew!

      What an amazing trip! This was my second DDY retreat and I will be back for more! The resort was beautiful, with a yoga Shala that looked out over the ocean and has a jungle backdrop! And on top of that, the food was amazing! The variety of both included and optional activities where amazing, in addition to the twice daily yoga. My personal favs were the sound healing, and the Mayan clay ceremony. The fellow retreaters where also amazing and really made it a trip to remember! Can’t wait for the next retreat!
