April 22 - April 28
Cabarete, Dominican Republic
Breathing is fundamental to life and well being. Breath of Life Retreats offers you the chance to reconnect to your breath, reset, and rediscover your purpose. When we take a step back we often have a better sense of clarity and understanding. This perspective allows us to notice what choices we are making in our everyday lives. You will have the opportunity to establish a daily yoga practice, eat healthy delicious meals, and get back to nature. The trip is designed to help you balance your mind body and spirit; allowing you to return to your daily life with a newfound sense of passion and energy!

"The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and relationships"
- T.K.V Desikachar
Our daily yoga and meditation classes are designed to educate, rejuvenate and empower. Each class will offer a chance for students to learn a little more about their own anatomy and how the various asana (postures) can be designed to fit each person's needs. We will nourish and balance our nervous system with pranayama (breathing techniques), restorative yoga and meditation. There is a wise and profound inner teacher within each one of us and by cultivating self awareness and mindfulness in action we are empowered to let this inner teacher to shine forth.
Roque Rodriguez RYT 500, E-RYT 200
Roque Rodriguez is the proud Co-Founder of Suryaside Yoga. He is Co-Director and Co-Lead Trainer of both the Suryaside Yoga and Hosh Yoga 200 hour Teacher Trainings.
He received his first Yoga teacher Certification from Yoga To The People in 2009 and continued his studies with the Ishta Yoga 500 Hour level course and at Jason Brown’s Anatomy For Yoga Teachers program.
Roque believes that a yoga practice is the most effective way to bring yourself, and in turn the world, in to balance. Whether it’s to become a better athlete, more successful at business, recover from an injury, or improve your relationships with others, a yoga practice can provide you the tools necessary to meet your goals and better honor your intentions. He is honored to share this practice with the world; especially people and communities who have not traditionally had access to the teachings.
Yuuki Hirano E-RYT 500, L.Ac
Yuuki is the proud owner of Dou Yoga as well as the co-founder of Suryaside Yoga and Hosh Yoga. He is the Co-Director and Co-Lead teacher of the 200 hour teacher training program at Dou Yoga and Suryaside Yoga.
In addition to a decade of practice, Yuuki has been teaching since 2008. He completed his 500 hour training with ISHTA Yoga but his thirst for knowledge and passion for helping others laid the path for him to receive his Masters in Oriental Medicine and become a licensed acupuncturist.
Yuuki believes in the importance of functional movement and using the breath as a foundation and progression of one’s yoga practice. With his understanding of anatomy, body mechanics, meditation, the breath and the energy that weaves all it together, Yuuki wishes to educate and create an environment of inquiry, healing and growth for his students.
