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.
