Chrissy Lefavour began teaching yoga in 2012 and continued to teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Kids yoga. She completed her RYT 500-hour certification in early 2014. In addition to teaching classes around Central Vermont, Chrissy became involved with yoga with horses, SUP yoga, and leading yoga retreats internationally. A born traveler, Chrissy brought her first group of yogis to the Dominican Republic in 2016 and was immediately in love with the combination of yoga, Caribbean lifestyle, fresh food, and the amazing activities offered at The Yoga Loft, Cabarete.
Growing up, playing basketball and swimming, I always had an interest in fitness and health. I loved the feeling of being connected and at ease with my body. In 2015, I underwent open-heart surgery and found myself longing for a way to reconnect with all parts of my being. Yoga has helped me heal and helped me find inner strength. I completed my 200 Hour Teacher Training at the Goodyoga yoga school in Brooklyn, NY, with a focus on Alignment and Anatomy followed by a 300HR advanced teaching mentorship. I strive to encourage my students to listen to their bodies as they move towards growth.

"Perfect place to chill"
This was my first solo travel so I was a little anxious about it. However, at the Extreme Hotel you feel truly welcome and relaxed. Everyone is very friendly and the environment is conducive to interaction.
I booked just one week but would loved to have stayed at least one more week. I can't wait to go back. It's not a tourist environment, very chill and unpretentious.

"Exceeded Expectations "
Chrissy, the yoga instructor, is excellent ... beautiful flows with a lovely view of the ocean. The activities that were included also exceeded my expectations. The farm tour with the tubing along the river was fun with divine scenery. The SUP YOGA was in a magnificent spot as well. The surfing was great for beginners and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our group was amazing! I would definitely return !

"Best mini holiday and retreat I’ve had!"
Very friendly staff! It was the first time I visited Cabarete, yet I felt safe and at home right away. The food (breakfast and dinner) is of amazing quality (with organic and gluten free options) so props to the wonderful chef for the wonderful menu👍🏼 The daily yoga practices were all wonderful yet challenging! There are also many activities such as kite surfing, trapeze etc on site (which I will definitely try the next time I visit Extreme Hotel). The tour to the organic farm and river tubing exceeded my expectations. I’ve had soo much fun on my birthday visiting Taino’s Farm and River Yasica. If you like adventure and great sceneries; You should definitely try this one out. I had such a wonderful experience that I did not want to leave 😩 thanks Robin, Vikki and Gabby for a wonderful retreat!💕🙏🏼

"Beachside Yoga. Can’t Go Wrong"
Classes and instructors were all fantastic. Can’t beat the facilities. My package was perfect - it included meals, two yoga classes per day, an excursion and the schedule itself allowed plenty of time to explore Cabarete on your own.

"Amazing and Healing! "
This place was amazing. The yoga loft was perfect, the food was delicious, and you can’t beat the location. We did a different tour of the country each day and most of the time made it back in time for evening yoga class. Definitely coming back ASAP!

I loved all parts of this experience. The yoga, the food, the farm, the tubing, the smoothies, the pool, the badass chicks who worked there (Also the dudes) and watching the kiteboarders. I didn't get a chance to check out the circus classes, wish I had more fun tickets to use that trip, it's a must for my next visit.
I also liked that the entrance to the rooms were gated and how friendly everyone was. I need to work on my Spanish skills, but this place is amazing. I'll be back to the DR soon.

"Aging Surfer Wannabe"
I can't say enough wonderful things about this whole experience. Absolutely magical from start to finish. My only warning: bring good noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs for the nights, as sometimes the traffic on the nearby road can be a bit noisy.

"Not your typical yoga retreat "
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The environment was friendly. I met many interesting people and enjoyed hanging out with them at the "hotel's restaurant." It was a casual and inviting atmosphere.
