Opportunity for Personal Retreat and Renewal
Feel free to turn off your head from the moment you arrive at the airport in Dominica, where a shuttle will take you to the authentic eco-resort at Jungle Bay. Here you will find 55 acres of nature trails, swimming areas, and amenities that include ocean cabana, pool, yoga center and meditation gardens. Our itinerary includes ample opportunity for personal reflection and discovery - both individually and as a group - as well as the daily practice of observing the wisdom and peace of silence.
Supporting Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit
The all-inclusive meals at Jungle Bay are sourced by local producers who bring the best and freshest organic vegetables, fruit, honey, spices, fish and eggs to the restaurant daily - where the cooks are happy to cater to any food sensitivities or preferences you may have - and host a group cooking class if interested.
Your package includes two massages at the Spa du Soleil, in treatment rooms overlooking the ocean. Daily opportunities for yoga and meditation - including our exploration of this not-so-famous natural paradise - will help still the mind, move the body and restore the spirit!
Eco-Adventure in the Caribbean’s ‘Nature Island’
Rainforests, oceans and hot springs, oh my! Dominica is truly the Caribbean’s natural wonderland with its diverse ecosystem. We will explore some of the island’s highlights, from the lush rainforests that lead to Victoria Falls to Scott’s Head Pinnacle, one of the most beautiful dive/snorkel spots on the island. The truly adventurous will hike to Boiling Lake - an amazing fumarole, or an opening in the Earth's crust that releases steam and gas, and it's flooded with hot bubbling water that rises into a cloud of vapor. Locals say it’s a challenging hike but well worth it. Of course, any and all opportunity to soak in the many hot springs around the island will not be missed.
8 Day Yoga + Wellness + Eco-Adventure Retreat with Shaney Aalbers
Shaney Aalbers, Yoga Instructor
I can light-heartedly reference myself as a bit of a gypsy. My attention span might yawn in attempting to list and name the certificates I have obtained, the trainings that I have attended, the disciplines that I have studied, and the characters that have and continue to inspire me. Alternatively, I delight in referring to the awakenings and treasures found in my own character, that are the result of having traveled to and explored 15 countries. A few of these travels were dedicated to residential bouts of studying or instructing and offering bodywork services. More of the travel finds me as an observer of life and how vast it can be, admiring and appreciating with eyes and heart wide open.
I’ve acquired a couple formal, beyond the yoga industry, credits; a B.S. in Community Health Education from Portland State University, and qualifications with experience as a massage therapist (licensed since December, 2000). Off the mat and outside of my role in bodywork therapy, I feel most vital when I play recreationally; cycling, snowboarding, rock climbing, skateboarding, surfing, dancing, and frolicking with my 2 dog friends. Oh, and then there’s napping, I really enjoy naps. I would be charmed to cross paths with you, practicing the practices, exploring connection, and embodying conscious play.
