Overview
More
Shiva's Cave Yoga Studio is part of Monte Placido Vacation Home Rentals. We are a residence of six Villas for rent on a hilltop in the Dominican Republic. All of our homes have breathtaking ocean views. They are about fifteen minutes from the town of Las Terrenas and a five minute drive to the nearest beach. Shiva's Cave Yoga Studio is a natural limestone grotto carved into the hillside. It features a large wooden workout deck and is fully stocked with blocks, blankets, belts and even has an Iyengar style rope wall. It is a mystical and spiritual place with an interior cave chamber perfect for quiet meditation.

Lovely garden and quiet surroundings. Steep hill to get up, and we didn't trust our car to make it. Luckily the owners were very helpful.

I just discovered your question! Sorry it took so long for a response. No, the yoga teacher will come upon request. You are welcome to use Shiva's Cave for your own personal workout.
