Floating Yoga Makes a ‘Splash!’ at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa

We’ve got an activity to keep you balanced this week — literally. Paddleboard Yoga, or Floating Yoga on the Water (FloYo®), is bringing poise and strength to Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa all week.

FloYo® takes the class out of the gym and into the water, cultivating fitness with yoga sequences and interval training performed on a paddle board.

Jessie Benson, founder of FloYo®, describes her class as a full-body workout for men and women of all fitness levels, noting that FloYo® equally refreshes and connects the mind and body.

This isn’t the FloYo® mastermind’s first stay at Breathless: In fact, she has taught highly attended classes at the resort in the past, always receiving excellent feedback from guests. She encourages each FloYo® participant to bring all of the following:

  • Beach towel
  • Water bottle
  • Swimsuit or Dri-FIT workout gear
  • Sunscreen

The minimum age for FloYo® classes is 18, and no previous experience is required. Additional details, including class times, are available on the Hourglass Entertainment Program.

FloYo® was inspired by Jessie Benson’s love of paddle boarding and water sports.

Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa frequently offers professional Paddleboard Yoga classes, and we’re thrilled to have our FloYo® pro back for another round of innovative fitness in paradise.

Five Adventure Excursions to Plan in Punta Cana

There’s plenty going on at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa to keep you busy for weeks, but if you’re feeling adventurous, why not take advantage of your time in the Dominican Republic to see some of what this incredible county has to offer? Below we’ve listed some of our favorite excursions, all within a couple hours of Breathless Punta Cana.

  • La Romana: Located approximately 1.5 hours southwest of Punta Cana, La Romana is one of the largest cities in the Dominican Republic and is known for its superior golfing, beautiful beaches and shopping area.
