Join us on January 9-14, 2023 for an unforgettable, New Year’s yoga retreat in the beautiful Samana Peninsula in the Dominican Republic.
An immersion retreat with daily yoga and meditation, intention setting workshops, boating trips to isolated beaches, excursions to mangrove forests and bird watching sites, pool lounging, fresh local food, and so much more!
Some of these sites are included in the retreat excursions but we highly encourage you to stay longer and explore the beauty of Samana.
The retreat will be hosted in an oceanfront boutique hotel in Las Galeras Samana. With magical ocean view rooms, tropical setting, and tranquility all around, you will truly find the time and space to relax and unwind.
While still private and tucked away, the hotel is close to small shops and restaurants that you can visit by foot or bike. Amenities include a private beach, outdoor swimming pool, spa services, cocktail bar, unlimited use of kayaks, bikes, and snorkeling equipment free of charge, and more.
You will be served 3 nourishing meals a day. All meals are made onsite from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The menu offers a variety of international, Caribbean, Latin American, Asian, and Dominican dishes with exciting vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.
Wondering how you’ll spend six days in paradise? There are plenty of things to do. Some things will be part of the retreat programming and others you can do on your own time.
2 (90-minute) masterclasses per day** will take place on the beautiful oceanfront yoga shala. The morning class will be an energizing flow with guided breathwork and meditation. The evening class will be a Yin/Restorative practice with journaling, and a full Yoga Nidra meditation. All levels are welcome.
In addition, there will be an Intention & Goal Setting Workshop where you'll use powerful yogic tools like breathwork and journaling to set heartfelt intentions for the New Year. You'll then learn how to use Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep) to embed this intention so that you can move towards something specific you'd like to achieve in live (health, relationships, stability, abundance).
**Note: there will not be a morning class on the day we have a full day excursion.
Two group excursions are included. These may include boating trips where we visit multiple beaches around the Peninsula, a full day excursion to Los Haitises National Park where you'll get to see mangrove forests, bird sanctuary keys, caves with pictographs and petroglyphs, group walk to La Playita, a popular beach located just ten minutes from the hotel (you can also go on your own), and more.
** We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover your costs in case you need to cancel, either due to COVID-19 or any other reason.
