Keep reading to learn more about this immersive and serene experience!
Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana’s breathtaking property is integrated with the natural surroundings of lush Uvero Alto. A wellness oasis featuring a soothing rustic elegance, the spirit of the resort is far removed from the hectic tempo of everyday living, creating a tranquil atmosphere for a relaxing retreat.
Led by world-renowned yoga instructor, Marianne Wells, retreat experiences will take guests on a journey of self-discovery through experiences that explore all six pillars of holistic wellness – Movement, Spirit, Serenity, Appreciation, Love and Nourishment.
Wellness for All
The program is open to all guests – with no registration or length of participation required – and will offer four optional experiences each day, involving morning movements, lunch and learns, unique activities and evening calm classes.
Some of the activities and experiences offered will include:
During a Wellness Welcome Ceremony on arrival day, guests will enjoy a cocktail hour at one of the resort’s most breathtaking locations, including a wine tasting, a delectable selection of organic, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free appetizers, a soothing variety of live music, and an opening introduction from retreat leader, Marianne Wells.
During a Natural Tea Making Class, guests will learn how to incorporate real live plants for tea infusions.
Partner Yoga is a very special activity that will teach the importance of working together.
By participating in our Horseback Riding on the Beach experience, guests will learn and discuss the importance and benefits of working with animals in order to appreciate every aspect of the world around them.
During a Tranquil Swim, guests will be encouraged to appreciate the natural element of water, while relaxing in the calming ocean or one of the resort’s pristine pools.
An Ayurveda for Life themed class will feature open discussions about plant medicine, natural teas, self-care rituals and routines, and more.
A Personal Yoga Therapy class will teach the importance of breathe-move-meditate-eat-rest-love wellness practices. Also during this time, Marianne Wells will tailor her methods to each individual guest, discussing holistic care and Ayurveda spa treatments, as well as yoga poses and routines for specific needs.
A Cool & Calm Brain themed evening class will mark a special time of deep meditation in one of the most natural and tranquil settings.
The September 17th – 23rd dates for Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana’s Holistic Wellness Retreat were carefully chosen and have a two-fold significance. Not only is September Yoga Awareness Month, but also September 20th represents the new moon.
New moons are a time to enfold into your real self. They are a blank page on which to speak your dreams out loud and set intentions for anything you’d like to create, develop, cultivate and make manifest. They are a hiatus for relaxing and resting by merging with the renewing, spiritual source before the next cycle of life’s happenings. Most importantly, new moons are a time to remember who you are and to receive guidance on the road ahead.
