YOGA & ADVENTURE RETREAT with yoga instructor Alexandra Ruiz & holistic nutritionist/plant-based chef Emily Davies at the beautiful and peaceful Surfbreak Cabarete from April 8th to 14th, 2018

Treat yourself to yoga, adventure, and delicious plant-based cuisine surrounded by the tropical vibes of Cabarete, Dominican Republic at the beautiful Surfbreak Cabarete Surf & Yoga Resort.



Book your flight to Puerto Plata (POP). Santiago (STI) is an OK alternative, but try to avoid any other airport.

Located at Playa Encuentro you will find tranquilly in the paradise of Surfbreak Cabarete while experiencing the adventure in all that Cabarete has to offer. Surfbreak Cabarete is a nature and adventure inspired resort, tucked away in the tropical beauty of Encuentro Beach yet just 5 minutes away from the center of Cabarete. Encuentro Beach is a beautiful unspoiled natural beach just a 3 minute walk down the street and is the #1 beach for surfing in the Caribbean.

Life is about balance; so if you are seeking to explore the beautiful surroundings while connecting with nature and nourishing your body and mind, please join us! 

About The Retreat

Here you will start your day connecting to yourself with a morning meditation and yoga practice in the fantastic fresh air yoga studio. Each day will offer an activity or excursion granting the opportunity to either step out of your element or into your comfort zone. All the while practicing pure presence, whether it be lounging by one of the two pools, paddling out on a surfboard, jumping into a canyon, or advancing your practice on your yoga mat. Throughout this week, you will be guided through a journey of trust and gratitude, developing skills in trusting your instincts and cultivating a deeper relationship with your truest self. 


Each meal at Surfbreak will be consciously prepared by Chef Emily Davies and served in a device-free environment where space is reserved for sharing experiences and thoughtful conversations. We encourage mindful eating practices for optimal nourishment.

Alexandra Ruiz

Alex has a grand passion for living life by your own design. Since taking a chance on herself walking away from her life as a Real Estate agent and NYC bartender, she has stepped onto a more fulfilling, healing path she always craved. Stripping away the masks and making the conscious decision to live a life on the pure frequency of trust and gratitude, navigated by what fills her soul and not just her pockets. Yoga has always been a part of her life as she was raised in a home where meditation, mindfulness, and energy recognition were always present and influenced by her Mother. Since completing her 200hr teacher training at the Lakshmi Rising school of Yoga and Wellness, she has never been more fulfilled by the opportunity to hold space that allows for unique transformation, inspiring people to take their practice off their mat into their daily lives. 

Her happy place is barefoot in Mother Nature, bathing in the sea and rivers. She is over joyed to share her passion and grateful for the opportunity to guide you to find your own happy place and the courage to live your own truth.
