Puerto Plata: “Silver Port” Dominican Republic

Sl-o-o-o-w it down … satiate yourself on sun and sand, sunsets, sweet breezes, yummy food & beach cabana beds overlooking the horizon! Morning and evening regenerative and restorative yoga to tune you and tone you, stretch and ease you. Long restful days to eat, drink, laze, swim, go to the spa, or book activities and excursions. I highly recommend unplugging and unwinding!

Here’s a trailer from my scouting trip in July. Here is our resort, the Lifestyles Holiday Vacation Club Tropical Resort. Lifestyles Tropical Resort is on Cofresi Beach, on the Puerto Plata coast of the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic. The weather all 12 months, is 70’s to 80’s, the tropical breezes wafting over the lush green foliage.

Our all-inclusive resort has delicious restaurants in varied cuisines, multiple beaches, multiple gorgeous pools. You can plan excursions, or chill and take advantage of downtime on the beautiful and varied beaches and pools on the grounds. Think of it as quiet time, down time, a re-set time, with just as much adventure as you may individually decide to build in. Bring books and swimsuits and journals!

Your Teachers:

* Mary Aranas is a master trainer of Restorative, Regenerative, Yin, and Yoga Nidra styles, as well as ISHTA, AcroYoga and Thai Yoga.

* Donna Davidge, founder and director of Sewall House, Maine, is an experienced Yoga teacher and trainer, and master Kundalini teacher.

* Raul Aranas plays acoustic guitar with Concerts in Motion, and provides us dreamy Savasana and Yoga Nidra accompaniments.

Together we will unravel and unwind our souls and bodies daily AM and PM, with the sea view and the rising and setting of the sun. And we will unwind with yummy food, drink, relaxation and companionship, the rest of the time!
