Early Bird Special from $1140
Join us for AcroYoga, handstands, Caribbean beaches and farm-to-table eats on this next level “Learn to Fly” retreat in the Dominican Republic.
Tarzan and Sprout, a leading couple of Acro Yoga, have created the perfect program for those looking to build strength, flexibility, and confidence while learning all the foundational techniques into beginner sequences and more advanced partner exercises.
Incorporating partner balancing, stretching and body weight training this dynamic duo will teach you everything you need to know to take your partner workouts to the next level. You wont believe how much stronger and more flexible you’ll get in just a week of training with them!
If you’ve never tried Acro before you will learn all the basics you need to feel grounded and confident. We will progress along with you during the week and keep it as fun and challenging as we can while staying safe.
Add on an amazing experience like Flying Trapeze class (yep, we’ve got one) or a kiteboarding or surf lesson and you’ll find yourself getting tanned, fit and blissed out in the Caribbean sun.
Or should I say ModernTarzan, is a world renowned acro Yogi with years of experience and training with many well known instructors from all over. He has also made a name for himself as a top competitor on the TV series American Ninja Warrior and as a movement artist on social media, but, like any superhero, he goes by an alternate identity when performing his amazing feats of agility and strength.
He’s been fascinated with movement since day one! Growing up playing soccer most of his youth later discovering more of a passion for the free flowing artistic movements like Capoeira, Parkour, and of course Acro yoga. He’s taught at events such as Divine Play, Acro Love, Lucidity, and now hosting movement retreats like this one.
On his rest days he spends his time cooking delicious food, playing the piano or planning the next adventure.
Otherwise known as Sprout, like so many others, has fallen in love with Acro Yoga. The exercise has left her feeling stronger both physically and mentally then any other exercise she’s ever experienced. Expanding on her 7 year yoga practice and high school cheer experience, Acro was the perfect combination of strength and partner trust. Now she’s very excited to teach and share the beauty and confidence it’s brought into her life and what better place to do it then in the Caribbean!
Besides Acro, Sprout is a health specialist particularly well versed in medicinal mushrooms and herbal tonics. She loves sharing and educating the benefits of with the community. Be sure to ask her about something that ails you!
You’ll find her biking to yoga, experimenting with new flavors in the kitchen, gardening or working on various creative projects. Her close friends call her sprout, because of her love for sprouting seeds & constantly wanting grow and flourish in new learnings. Her life goal is to always have a goal 🙂

Afterwards you’ll enjoy a delicious homemade vegetarian lunch prepared from fresh organic produce!
