SAMANA AREA - THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC:

On the northeastern coast of Dominican Republic lies the nature paradise, Samana on a peninsula which is today a sought after natural area. In the 16th century pirates hid in the lush, palm-filled forests, isolated beaches and hidden caves, while European and Haitian troops competed over the deep waters of the protected bay. Today, Samaná - often shortened to the whole peninsula - is well connected to soil and air, but it remains DR's secluded, paradisiacal escape of wild beaches, coconut orchards and rainforests. Its rolling mountains and valleys form the crystalline rivers that feed into the Atlantic Ocean as they cascade against brilliant white sandy beaches, stretching over hundreds of miles around the peninsula's rocky shoreline. Every year comes humpback whales in the bay. The giant mammals return to this special corner of D.R. to mate and give birth to calfs. The bay cultivates ecotourism to preserve the beautiful scenery and the rich wildlife.

YOGA:

The yoga is adapted to your needs, level and wishes. The yoga  sessions is a blend of gentle Yin yoga that rebuilds the cells of the body and provides tranquility to our mind and body and hatha / flow yoga that awakens the body's natural energy so you learn to switch between the inner  calm and more energetic flow in your body and also  learn to listen to your body.

Yoga has a calming effect and is good at creating inner balance and connection to our emotional life. We will do yoga daily and you will be guided through the exercises. No previous experience needed.
