The brand new Yogaplatform

 


The Instructor
 
Take advantage of one of the best known and most experienced Sivananda yoga teachers, Keshava Peter Weitgasser, that "Yoga" original and unadulterated experience.

 

Keshava Peter Weitgasser is a former Yoga Monk (Swami Keshavananda) and Interior Architect. He has been a full-time teacher of Yoga since the year 2000. For more than 16 years he worked in the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers of Europe, and assisted thousands of students in their Yoga teacher training courses and in Yoga retreats all over the world. He is a certified Sivananda Yoga Teacher and registered with Yoga Alliance (RYT). The teacher Registry is a listing of teachers worldwide who meet Yoga Alliance's Requirements for teaching experience and have completed their training at a Registered Yoga School. His teaching style is naturally, refreshing and dynamic. Peter`s extensive experience as a Yoga teacher is most appreciated during classes, when he provides precise, individual instructions and corrections on how Asanas are to be performed. His intuition and sensitivity to individual needs and differences restults in a very supportive and enjoyable learning environment, and makes every Yoga class a special occasion. He is an expert in Kirtan and Mantra singing and plays several instruments, like Harmonium, Tabla and Cymbal.
 

 
 
 
Yoga is much more than body exercises
 
 
The great Yogameister, Swami Sivananda says: The idea of the beginner Yoga is only from physical exercises (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayama) is widespread however, a big mistake. Yoga brings perfection, peace and lasting happiness. Through the Yoga praxis you can always find Peace of mind. Sleep calmly. More energy. Strength and vitality. Alive. Healthy. Powerful.
 
The effectiveness of yoga. On Body. Spirit. and. Soul. Arrived in one place. With hosts. They create rooms to find yourself in the middle of an intact nature. High up over the ocean. A free spirit needs free visibility. 

Yoga is a practice that will adapt to you – not the other way around. This retreat is especially created to convey the fact that yoga is so much more than just a posture. Everybody is welcome regardless of skill level, even if they have never done yoga before. Anyone who would like to have a personal practice, customized to their preferences, will benefit greatly from this experience. Even those who are already on an advanced level (that would like something more challenging than a normal yoga class) can benefit from learning how to live the philosophy of yoga in their daily life.

 
Yoga paradise
 
 

During this retreat, you will live an experience to harmonize your body and soul. Totally unwind, let your mind go, and relax while your body immersed in the perfect combination of restfulness and motion-free from external influences. This retreat offers daily yoga practices and interaction with the yoga instructors and like-minded fellow travelers in the incredible picture landscapes.

Yoga is rather a way of life which is about compassion, mindfulness, and truthfulness. The atmosphere on this retreat is quiet and, except for the daily yoga hours, your time is your own to read, swim, sleep, and enjoy. Much emphasis is placed on healthy, diverse, and fresh food to accompany the experience.


Highlights inclusive

 

Half-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. Starting with a boat in Las Galeras we will arrive Playa Fronton after 30 minutes. There we will stay for 2 hours, enjoying the beach and the sea. Drinking fresh coconut water. Then we will 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. You will feel all the efforts by experiencing the natural way of the Dominican Republic.

Whale watching in the Bay of Samaná 

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.

 

Trip to the waterfall El Limon including horseriding

The waterfall “Salto El Limon” is located amidst a lush tropical landscape on the peninsula of Samaná, approximately an hour away from Las Galeras. This spectacular waterfall drops 150 feet into a natural, beautiful pool filled with fresh, crystal clear water.
You can reach the top of the waterfall on horseback, then hike downwards through tropical jungle until you reach the bottom of this roaring cascade, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the big natural pool.

 

Beach day at Playa Playita

Beautiful beach to spend a moment of tranquility and enjoy nature, with a spectacular view.

 

1 hour massage included
