Shelley Carroll founded Dancing Dogs Yoga in 2010 and has been leading retreats and trainings worldwide ever since.  Enjoy daily yoga, meditation, and yoga nidra classes in the yoga dome.  Set in the middle of the jungle, you'll be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the tropics.


Our yoga classes are designed for ALL levels of practitioners, so no matter where you are on your yoga journey, you will be challenged and inspired.  We start each day with a vinyasa flow practice and meditation, and on non-excursion days, offer a special afternoon practice, like yoga nidra or yin.


Please bring any props you require for your practice.

Welcome to the Jungle

The Dominican Treehouse Village is a unique property located in the rain forest near Samana. Famous for whale watching, Samana is strategically located on the north eastern part of the island, with unparalleled views, beaches, and tropical flora and fauna. The treehouse village itself is one of the most unique properties you’ll ever visit, like a magical city on stilts in the middle of the forest. You’ll feel like you’ve escaped to a make-believe world.  

Disconnect to get connected

Live in a treehouse. Get close to nature. Make your morning commute across stepping stones and a rope bridge and leave traffic and the news behind. Each day, you will wake to fresh coffee and cacao, a delicious buffet breakfast, yoga, meditation and bliss. And no internet. Unplug and unwind, treehouse style.

Fresh Food to make you drool

All of your meals are included at the Dominican Treehouse Village.  Breakfast includes fresh fruit and juice, local delicacies, and Dominican coffee and cacao.  Enjoy lunch on the beach with fish pulled straight from the ocean, coconut and pineapple drinks, and the best papas fritas and tostones you've ever tasted.  Chef Leo will wow you each night at dinner with a four course meal of appetizers, creative soups, delicious organic dinners.... and there is always dessert.



What should I bring?

Our retreat swag bags are epic, and often have amazing surprises.  You don't need much out here in the jungle, though there are a few must haves:

 

Bring sunscreen, personal toiletries and medications, and shorts and swimsuits. We highly recommend rain jackets, as downpours HAPPEN in the rain forest! 


The weather is warm and humid, but can be breezy at night.  A light hoodie or jacket is often welcome.


This location is truly beautiful, so DO bring a camera.  We recommend leaving very expensive equipment at home unless you are prepared to deal with the humidity!  We do keep a professional photographer on staff, so bring an easy camera.


Pack sneakers!  While it will be tempting to live in flip flops, some of the hiking (Including the zipline) can be muddy and rocky, and you'll appreciate the footwear.


Bring a little cash for incidentals.  Tips, souvenirs ...  you won't need much, but it's nice to have.  Almost everyone takes US dollars.

This trip to Iceland was amazing. We were fortunate enough to see the northern lights on 3 different nights and then to top it off, even from the backyard of the places we where we were staying. The country is so beautiful - hiking and seeing the sites as we traveled together. The geothermal spas were incredible, the food was superb and the company was so much fun. We had a yoga practice daily then went to lunch and began excursions. I cannot say enough good things about this trip. We laughed, we played and we were there for each other. This is one journey to truly consider. Shelley does such a great job planning these events, she is resourceful, fun and creative.

This was my second retreat with DDY retreats. A huge thank you to Shelley for a once in a lifetime adventure in France. It was an amazing time. It was obvious that everything was thoughtful and planned for an enjoyable trip. It was a week I will never forget. I got to meet new friends, eat amazing food and practice yoga in the French countryside. I seriously cannot wait until my next DDY retreat. Thank you again.
