About this trip

Relax, explore, work out, and breathe in the beautiful fresh air in the Dominican Republic! Our retreat will take place in a boutique hotel located in Samana— a beautiful peninsula in the north of the Dominican Republic. You’ll have the option to take part in classes throughout the day such as Vinyasa, 26+2 yoga, yin yoga, and Pilates sculpt/core/HIIT. Everything is optional! If you’d rather sleep in one day, or plan a solo trip into town to explore, do it!!! There will be a beach hike excursion included where we will traverse 7 beaches and have a picnic lunch. Meals at the resort will be served buffet style and are included in the retreat price. Alcoholic beverages and soft drinks are available for purchase at an additional cost. The resort is on a private beach and has Kayaks, paddleboards, and bikes available to use during your stay. We can help you plan any extra excursion you may want to experience during your stay! Our main goal is that you have FUN, feel relaxed, eat good food, and enjoy yourselves.

Katie Southard: I am a mother of two inspiring people, attorney, and business owner. As a perfectionist (currently in recovery), in a career, which expects perfection, I needed to rebuild my mental and emotional infrastructure. I needed to learn how to relax, go with the flow, and give myself the safety, time and space needed to learn.

In 2022 I Completed the RYT 200-hour foundational course study for Kundalini Yoga under the tutelage of Guru Singh and Brett Larkin. I remain enrolled in Kundalini University to continue my studies.

Inspired by learning and sharing information, it is my desire to help others learn how to slow down and breathe. We will join together with a unique blend of movement, mediation and sound. We will learn together how to shift our energy, use our voice, focus on what we can change and what we do not have control of. Together we will build mental balance and learn how to feel the radiance of life.

This will be an introductory class. The less you know, the better! If you are curious, please join this introductory class.
