Chakra Life Force Mindfulness Retreat (April 13-20)

Be Bold, Be Brave, Be YOU!

A New Experience for Your Soul

Join us on the beach in the beautiful North Coast Dominican Republic.

Chakra self-discovery, mindfulness, yoga, meditation, beaches and adventures, we offer it all. Enjoy a daily sunrise yoga routine, Pranayama and Meditation. Our chef prepares chakra meals for vegans, vegetarians and can accommodate any dietary restrictions.

What will the Chakra Retreat do for you?

The chakra system is a map for the journey through life. This workshop will be your travel guide for your chakra journey. It is a comprehensive personal growth program- a way to transform your life that touches on each of the essential levels of consciousness that the chakra system describes. Learning about the chakras will give you access to your programmed responses so you can minimize their negative effects and maximize their positive ones.

What can you expect every day?

  •    Yoga: A daily sunrise yoga routine that will reconnect you with the natural circadian rhythms of our planet. We will practice yoga exercises to activate the chakra of the day with a backdrop of the most beautiful and colourful sunrises over the ocean. There is nothing better to start the day! Through pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation we energize and balance ourselves, bringing mindfulness to our conscious awareness.
  •    Workshops: After breakfast we will dive into a two-and-a-half-hour chakra workshop every day to work deeply on each chakra, using many different techniques. You will get a basic working understanding of the nature of each chakra that will help direct the focus toward connecting profoundly with your own personal chakra energy. The emphasis will be on providing many experiences so you can feel the excesses and deficiencies in your chakra energy and find a way to balance it. The work and nature of this retreat is to come into a condition of acceptance and inner peace.
  •    Great food! Our chef has designed a rainbow of meals that complement and support our chakra retreat. When thinking about the chakra system you probably aren’t considering the types of foods that you consume. Our vortexes need both physical and spiritual energy to thrive. It is important to feed and nourish the flesh in order to help support and fuel the energy body. Our meals are designed for vegetarians, but can be adjusted for vegans and with prior notice, can accommodate any dietary restrictions.  

 Diverse Daily Adventures:

 Biodanza: This is a human integration system of organic renewal, affective re-education, and re-learning of life’s original functions through dance, music, singing, movements and group encounter situations.

Paddle-boarding: Stand-up Paddle Boarding is an ancient form of board sport practised by the Polynesian people. Participants take a short hike to the Boca de Ori just down the beach a short way.

 Waterfall visit: Working with the energy of water early on second day, we will go on an outing to the local waterfall.  

Relaxing on the beach: At the beautiful Beachcomber Hotel waterfront you can take a swim in the aquamarine waves, or sunbathe at the pool side.

Personal treatments: Shiatsu, Energy Massage, Reflexology and Access Bars.

Nature hikes: Become familiar with the local flora and fauna. On our first hike we’ll shoot as many specimens as possible, with our cameras of course! You will be able to move at your own pace while getting to know a few of the 6,000 species of flora and 7,000 species of fauna that thrive in the DR.

Indian Dinner at Blue Moon: Blue Moon hosts a fantastically original and unique Indian-Caribbean Fusion restaurant in a thatched-roof dining kiosk. Guests enjoy dinner in the traditional Indian way seated comfortably upon cushions on the floor with banana leaves as plates and the right hand as silverware.
