There will be a two hour and 15 min, inversion/handstand workshop provided for an additional cost. Please contact us directly for prices as more information will be updated soon.
Coco is a California native from Los Angles who currently lives in Colonge, Germany. Her 200 HR YTT certification was taken in Astanga from Sampoorna Yoga, Goa India and teaches a mixture between Power Vinyasa and a Hatha type Flow. Along with teaching yoga she is also a professional roller skater which encourages her to bring in eclectic and artistic elements to her teaching style which include handstands and funky arm balances.
Whale watching in the Bay of Samaná (Jan-Mar only)
The bay of Samaná is one the main areas where the humpback whales migrate to in winter. Go on a guided excursion by boat and watch those giants in the sea in their natural environment.
After whale-watching, the trip continues to the small island of Caya Levantado, also called the “Bacardi Island”. This island has a white sandy “dream” beach with shallow waters sloping gently into the water. A delicious lunch will be served here. Before returning by boat you will have time to enjoy this beach or to explore Bacardi Island.
Full-Day Hike through the gentle hills of Samaná
Explore the undiscovered treasures of the Samaná peninsula. The plan is to go on a full-day hike with visiting Boca del Diablo, Playa Frontón and the rural area around Las Galeras. Walk along the unspoiled coastline, discover different fruits and vegetables while hiking along the cultivable land and get to know the village life in La Guázuma. It’s a strenuous 18km hike, but worth all the efforts by experiencing the natural way of the Dominican Republic.
