Testimonial about the space:
“Jen, I love it there! The chef in the farm-to-table restaurant makes amazing and delicious cuisine. I have had multiple students come back for a second retreat in this same destination. The Yoga Loft is beach side and breezy, the rooms are simple and clean, the staff is super friendly, and all in a sustainable eco-friendly environment. My favorite part of the retreats at extreme is always the farm tour and river tube!!! Let me know if you have any questions, but my students and I love it on Kite Beach! Highly recommend.”

Testimonial about your facilitator, Jen Deraspe
“The retreat made me feel the best, both physically or mentally, I’ve felt in a really long time. It really helped me take a step back and open my senses, improve my awareness and change some of my mindsets
that had been stuck for so long. I feel like I am more aware and hopefully more able to make positive changes.” Angela Haiss, Maine
Facilitated by Jen Deraspe, founder of Nurture Through Nature retreat center, who has been leading retreats & teaching yoga, qi gong and meditation since 1999. She is passionate about each person finding their healing potential and offers opportunities to do so in an authentic & effective way.
The Yoga Loft is located on Kite Beach, Cabarete, on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Cabarete is the perfect place to escape to for a yoga retreat, giving you the opportunity to unwind and be at peace in a beautiful environment.
Cabarete is famous as one of the top kitesurfing destinations in the world and one of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean is that the area also boasts world class surf breaks. If neither surfing or kiting is for you, there are other water-sports to choose from; learn windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding, or body surfing. Most instructors for the classes are Dominican locals, giving opportunity to engage with the community and learn more about the country and it’s culture, which is very social and full of passion and life.
