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.

This was an unforgettable experience. I loved being fully immersed in the jungle with full focus on yoga teacher training. It was a mental and physical challenge in the best way. Each day was utilized with amazing lessons, practices and activities. I am so grateful and blessed to have had the opportunity to learn and grow with such an amazing community!

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!
