You will be pleased to find out that yoguis will now have even more options for classes, as the Aldea Cultural Santa Rosa de Lima in La Romana, is providing ongoing courses which we can’t wait to try.

Yoga classes at the Aldea Cultural Santa Rosa de Lima are being held on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday for only RD$150 (US$3.33) per person! But these classes are not just for adults, given that children are also welcome.


Jackie, Altagracia and Carolina, are the three well prepared and professional yoga teachers who will encourage you to graduate from child’s pose to headstand in a heartbeat.

The Instructors

Jackie (Jaya Devi)

She practices Hatha Yoga since 1986 and took classes in Alma Mesa, Santo Domingo. She has been attending yoga retreats at the Sivananda Yoga Center at The Bahamas, Canada, and the United States since 2003. She took her first meditation course with Swami Sitaramanda in 2007 and 2011 at the Sivananda Yoga Center.

Shakti (Altagracia)

She got interested in yoga at a young age. At 19 she started attending the Hare Krishna Yoga Center in Santo Domingo. There she developed meditation techniques, studied the Bhagavad Gitta (the yogui sacred book), Bhakti Yoga (devotional service) and learned to cook vegan.

Carolina (Karuna)

She’s a yoga instructor for children and adults with two passions in her life, aromatherapy and yoga. In 2013, she attended to the Sivananda Yoga Center in Montreal, where she found out yoga was life’s passion.
