REstore, renew & PLAY Retreat in

Dominican republic

jan 25th - Feb 1st, 2020

at The Palms

30 minutes outside of Punta Cana

I get it.

There are lots of legit excuses (and some kinda lame) to NOT go on a retreat.

But let me counter with one that will trump them all:


(Read the testimonials below if you need a little convincing.)

The best gift you can give yourself (and everyone around you, when you come back feeling sensational) is this weeklong chance to rest & reconnect with your body, the outdoors and your inner vitality -- which includes reconnecting to PLAY! This can be hard to come by with all the responsibilities of “adulting,” yet it's essential to your wellbeing.

Join myself and Baron Carr in the Dominican Republic for a week of rejuvenating & mindful movement, delicious food, sunshine, introspection, community....and let's not forget recreation, to bring more healthy play into your life.

We offer two classes per day (yoga and meditation) and aside from that we don’t over-structure you. We DO give you all sorts of options to choose how you might want to spend your precious free time.

Here's the scoop:

LocationThe Palms - Punta Cana - a secluded Mediterranean-style private beachfront villa situated on one acre of Caribbean paradise offering 250 feet of beach, an expansive swimming pool with a lazy river that flows the full length of the property, and up to 14 spacious, bedroom suites with private bathrooms, complimentary spa products, and breathtaking sea views.

Yep, I’ve stepped it up a notch in luxury on this retreat!

Includes: 7 nights lodging, 1 morning vinyasa yoga class per day, 1 restorative/meditation class per day, opening and closing circle, one energy reading/clearing, facilitation of journaling/introspection exercises, all breakfasts, lunches & dinners, all non-alcoholic drinks including fresh juices & bottled water, all taxes, resort fees, and gratuities.

Extras on your own: Airfare, airport transfer, sunset catamaran cruise, massages, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, bikes, parasailing, sailing, zip-lining, wind surfing, kite boarding, kayaking, adventure buggies, alcoholic beverages (including those in the swim-up bar!) and souvenirs.

Travel: Fly into Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) then it’s a short 30 minute drive outside of the city

Testimonials about Rachel's retreats:

"My Nicaragua retreat with Rachel was the time of my life! I loved the casual, laid back vibe of everything. There was a lot of freedom to do what you wanted, but also a nice structure to our days that kept me grounded. The yoga we did was both athletic and relaxing which was a perfect balance. It was such a great treat to myself and I recommend everyone participate in a yoga retreat if you get the chance. Rachel created a safe, fun, uplifting and pleasurable atmosphere that I think I'll be having withdrawals from until I join her on her next retreat!" - Greta

“I know how incredibly blessed I am... gratitude upon gratitude for a retreat with new friends, new practices, orchids, coconut trees, water, birds and a multitude of sunrises. Thanksgiving for Dr. Rachel Allyn. My first ‘annual’ retreat!”  - Siri 

"I want to thank you for such an exceptional experience. I hope you know how much your style of teaching, as well as your subtle mix of psychology, really made for a powerful trip. It was beyond what I expected and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of such a special week." - Kim

"Nicaragua really was the most amazing and restorative experience for me, and I'm so grateful we were all able to share that time together. I really thought about how to integrate the clarity and relaxation I felt on this trip back into my real life." - Amanda

"I cannot thank you enough for an amazing adventure… Many great memories and learnings. New friends & connections. Just wow. I was totally able to unplug and appreciate. I never would have done something like this if it weren't for you - absolutely amazing." - Bea

"Thank you Rachel, and for the incredible impact you made on all our lives. I imagine (albeit presumptively) that each of us was made better, more whole, by having spent a week with you." - Shawn

"If you're looking for inner peace, digital detox, increased flexibility, amazing surfing, new friendships, good food (I could keep going) then I highly recommend checking out one of these retreats. A seriously life-changing experience." - Nell

"Rachel leads a top notch physical practice expertly weaved with words of inspiration, gratitude and self discovery. The retreat was high-spirited tropical fun with some fascinating cultural experiences. I would love to go on another retreat with Rachel." - Grace

”Had an awesome time with an awesome group of people. Dr. Rachel's yoga retreat was well organized, educational and entertaining. I would definitely recommend participating in one of her future retreats. I certainly look forward to attending another one myself. - Tony

“I want to thank you and Baron again for a wonderful trip and restorative retreat. Even after the long journey home I still have a smile on my face. It was also wonderful to connect with everyone on the retreat- I can’t wait to hear about your future endeavors and yoga success!” - Leslie
