Samaná Ocean View Eco Lodge
Yoga is a practice that will adapt to you – not the other way around. This retreat is especially created to convey the fact that yoga is so much more than just a posture or a perfectly performed Asana. Everybody is welcome regardless of skill level, even if they have never done yoga before. Anyone who would like to have a personal practice, customized to their preferences, will benefit greatly from this experience. Even those who are already on an advanced level (that would like something more challenging than a normal yoga class) can benefit from learning how to live the philosophy of yoga in their daily life.
During this retreat, you will live an experience to harmonize your body and soul. Totally unwind, let your mind go, and relax while your body immerses into the perfect combination of restfulness and independence of external influences. This retreat offers daily yoga practices as well as interaction with the yoga instructors and like-minded fellow travelers in this picture-perfect environment.
Yoga is rather a way of life which is about compassion, mindfulness, and truthfulness. The atmosphere on this retreat is quiet and, except for the daily yoga hours, your time is your own to read, swim, sleep, and enjoy. Another important part is healthy, diverse and fresh food to accompany the experience.
The yoga classes are suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced learners likewise and will include basic breathing exercises (Pranayama), a series of Asanas, Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar, a deep relaxation using yoga Nidra, and a gentle introduction to meditation.
On the arrival day, you will be welcomed by the yoga instructor and provided with information on the accommodation.
Extend your Caribbean holiday and stay for a few more days in your bungalow at Samaná Ocean View Eco Lodge and explore the spectacular nature and pristine beaches of the Samaná peninsula. We will be happy to assist you with planning and booking your excursions. A hike, a boat trip or whale watching (from January to March, even possible directly from the lodge) will allow you to familiarize even more with the beauty of the Dominican Republic. If you would like to explore other parts of the country, we can recommend you our adventure- and self-drive tours. Also, if you are looking for a few days of luxury and relaxation at the beach, we will be happy to organize this for you.
Please inform us prior to arrival about any injuries, surgery during the last 6 months, chronic diseases or pregnancy. We recommend that our guests purchase travel cancellation insurance to be covered in case of an unavoidable cancellation.
