Unplug to Recharge: Natura Cabana Yoga Retreat

Yoga Retreats in the Dominican Republic

Join us April 22-29th, 2017 with a Natura Cabana Yoga Retreat hosted by native New York yogi, Mel Russo. Mel describes her style as the sum of two things: a tough-talking New Yorker mixed with the kindness of a Quaker. She teaches breath-centered and alignment-based vinyasa classes with lots of hands-on adjustments. Alignment is her passion as a teacher.

Yoga Alliance certified since 2004, she is committed to building an authentic, compassionate, healthy life, and she hopes to guide her students on their personal journeys as well. Having recently completed a 100-hour Advanced Anatomy training with Physioglobal Yoga in the fall of 2015 and a 16-hour Restorative training with Jillian Pransky in the winter of 2016, Mel’s quest is always to help each student deepen their practice by finding what works for their individual body.

Ms. Russo is well known for her playlists, which she curates with love and positive energy. In her class, you will hear everything from Eric B and Rakim to Krishna Das. Her hope is that students might be reminded of a forgotten fave, or even better, fall in love with a new song that inspires.

Mel invites you to give your eyes, ears, and soul a break during this escape to our eco hotel. The retreat emphasizes being present, gifting a week to reset your mind and body, while inspiring participants to return to everyday life as better people. Our hotel was chosen for this retreat because Mel believes that unplugging every once in a while is crucial to maintaining a sense of well-being.
