Silks By The Sea: Aerial Yoga Escape in March 20-25, 2025

Hang Out In Paradise!

Have you ever dreamed of taking your aerial yoga practice to a white sandy beach? Imagine the sounds of ocean waves, warm wind, and exotic birds harmonizing with the scents of salty air, tropical fruit, and sun-kissed skin, as you gently sway in your aerial hammock… Welcome to our Aerial Yoga Retreats! Read on for all the info you’ll need to join us on our next getaway.

Why Go to an Aerial Yoga Retreat?

Aerial yoga retreats are an amazing way to rejuvenate and restore your mind, body, and soul, all while enjoying a unique and increasingly popular style of yoga that boosts flexibility, strength, and relaxation. Surrounded by serene and picturesque settings, aerial yoga retreats offer a wonderful mix of physical activity, meditation, and community, fostering personal growth and wellbeing.

What to Expect from our next Aerial Yoga Retreat

Join us on a tropical paradise journey to our first annual aerial yoga retreat! Led by Earth & Aerial Yoga founders, Katharine Scalora and Lora Markova, this 6-day/5-night intimate experience will transport you from your daily routine to a stunning beachfront setting. All your needs will be taken care of, allowing you to relax, restore, and enjoy the sun, serenity, and aerial yoga by the sea.

Location

Our inaugural getaway will take place at Villa Serena Wellness Retreat Center in Las Galeras, Samaná, Dominican Republic– a boutique luxury waterfront sanctuary that offers exclusive oceanfront rooms and an open-air yoga shala overlooking the beach. Nestled in a private tropical paradise on the western side of the island, this gorgeous property beckons with its calm, secluded atmosphere, stunning views, and abundant opportunities for both activity and relaxation. Step out onto your private ocean-view terrace to take in all of nature’s beauty, including coconut trees and vibrant gardens. (See full image gallery below)
