 Dharma Shala

“…Everyone has a purpose in life… a unique gift or special talent to offer to others. And when we combine that unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exhilaration of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals."

Deepak Chopra.


Our Story

Dharma Shala was born from a community dream to live a life of service from the heart. Bringing consciousness to the union, because we are all connected on the same land.


We feel committed to the development of our Cabarete community, which is why we seek to nurture ourselves among the collective, connecting a network of local alliances that can position Cabarete as a place of sustainable tourism that respects the values that preserve nature and the community.

We are a holistic Center for which the health and comprehensive well-being of our community

is the focus. Our space encourages teaching in which values such as sustainability, respect for nature and the collective are fundamental to our training. We promote comprehensive education promoting topics that include physical and holistic disciplines, physical/mental health issues, yoga and social responsibility, as well as maintaining ancestral practices that have preserved nature and created awareness in union with our land. At the same time we offer the service of holistic therapies that go from the aesthetic part to the part of traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, osteopathy, massages, etc.


Serve the community by bringing a space that promotes the integral well-being of the individual, offering holistic therapies and practices that help the individual to maintain balanced health and connection with their human being.

Offer a teaching space that allows the community to share knowledge, train in different holistic disciplines and promote new ventures.

It will also be the host of TTC, yoga retreats among other holistic disciplines that seek to show the beauty of the Dominican Republic promoting green tourism, which respects nature without invasion.



By contributing our grain of sand, we will help the Cabarete community to expand their intellectual horizons, opening the door for many of our locals to undertake holistic disciplines committed to values that respect and care for nature and the community. As well as travelers who come passing through in small or long seasons to choose our destination to train in different disciplines. Providing job opportunities, exchanges and scholarships that promote education and fulfill the cycle of sustainability
