Solé East Resort is a hotel housed in a landmark American Tudor building, with 60 renovated bungalow-like rooms, each one unique, and seven garden cabana suites. A heated pool with oversized St. Tropez style beds will keep you cool while your head bops to tunes being spun by the poolside DJ. Lush lawns and gardens with bamboo walkways complete the beach club feel. To indulge your gastronomic palette, there is the hip yet healthy Backyard, full service restaurant bar, and poolside lounge.

Solé East Resort is a hip little place, renovated with their own style and hands, with a ton of great vibes and atmosphere.

Accommodations are in single or double rooms. Expect sprinklings of luxury in the areas that matter; such as Simmons pillow-top mattresses and 300 thread count Italian linens, flat screen TV’s and iPod docks. Be sure to ask the friendly staff anything to make your stay spectacular.

There would be four yoga classes with Jessica Bellofatto, 20 minutes of individual consultation with Jessica about yoga goals, injuries, as well as questions about yoga and meditation practice. This individual consultation can be scheduled pre-retreat or over the course of the weekend.

You can also join some optional activities. They include paddle boarding and SUP yoga on Fort Pond with Jessica (if weather and conditions permit), and nutritional consultations with Adam Kelinson, chef extraordinaire and author of "The Athlete’s Plate: Real Food for High Performance".

There would be a 1-hour guided hike through pristine nature preserve.

    Jivamukti Yoga School (Jivamukti Yoga)

    Jessica has been practicing yoga for 24 years. She started at the original Jivamukti Yoga Studio in East Village, New York. She completed her 500-hour training in 1997 at the Jivamukti Yoga School under the guidance of Sharon Gannon and David Life. She spent many hours studying the Anusara, Iyengar, and Ashtanga styles and is currently pursuing certification in Ashaya yoga, which sprouted from Anusara, with Todd Norian. Jessica is also a triathlete, an avid surfer, and the owner of KamaDeva Yoga.

Montauk, on the easternmost tip of the South Fork, is one of the sports fishing and surfing capitals of the world, as well as home to the oldest lighthouse in Long Island. The Montauk Historical Society maintains the lighthouse, keeper’s dwelling (there’s a nice museum in there), outbuildings and grounds, while the US Coast Guard operates it. Visitors are welcome to climb the 137 spiral steps to the top of the lighthouse and, on a clear day, look out at Block Island across the sound.

A visit to Montauk Harbor is a must when you are out here. Stroll through while watching the fishing boats go in and out of the harbor. Sample a true fisherman’s hangout at the Westlake Marina’s Chowder House – the fishing boats pull up right off the deck of the restaurant.

Also one of the best surfing destinations on the entire USA east coast, Montauk is known for its quality waves and consistency of swells. There are many different spots to choose from according to your level, the tide, swell direction, or wind conditions.

Testimonials

  • Review by Deborah Spera

    "A yoga practice exists to anchor you in the here and now while reminding you of your greatest potential spiritually. As a result of that reminder, the body gives way to incremental moments (inches really) that provide enormous pathways of possibility. When I met Jess I hadn’t done a handstand in 22 years, i hadn’t contemplated the splits in even more. I had given up what I thought my numerical age allowed. Jess reminded me that who we are and what we are are defined by practice and faith and belief in possibility. As I remembered what it was to do a backbend and a headstand, so I also remembered and discovered not only who I am, but who I am meant to be. Only a great teacher can provide a light to that path. And Jess is and has always been for me a great teacher. A reminder of my spiritual being and a true beacon of joy."

    "I have known Jessica Bellofatto since she became certified from Jivamukti many years ago. She has always been a gifted teacher and an inspiring spirit. She was always the epitome of a yogini, which is why I chose her to represent my Nuala yoga inspired clothing line for our first catalogue. She is a beautiful soul inside and out. I continue to learn from her every time I am in her presence and I am grateful for the opportunity always."

    "In a sky full of yoga stars, Jessica’s shines most brightly. She is a natural teacher of yoga in all its aspects and her classes are rare, perfectly formed gems. Afterwards, I always feel satisfied and I am always hungry for more."

  • Review by Shira Barzilay

    "I had been going on a yearly yoga retreat with Jessica (and Lois the first year) for a few years. Each time, I emerged with a rising feeling of power, a clarity in my heart, and an unmistakable sense that I wished I didn’t have to wait until next year to experience this again. When an email arrived in August of 2012, announcing a teacher training in East Hampton with Jessica and Lois, my first reaction was, “I don’t want to be a teacher, but 10 weekends of instruction and hands-on practice, now that may be even better than a one week retreat!” I knew I wanted to invest in the deepening of my practice, because as anyone who commits to yoga can say—it is the answer. I cannot compare my time spent on my mat to anything else, and now with the knowledge I have gained—bringing it into my daily life—driving the kids around, washing the dishes, and dealing with people—has made all my interactions and life work so much better. If you are considering this teacher training, go with your gut, trust yourself, invest in yourself. Doing so will take you to new heights. Trust Jess and Lois. Don’t underestimate yourself."

    "Dear Jessica and Gina, I am so full of gratitude for this past weekend and for my relationship with each of you. This weekend was incredible. It was so powerful to be in the company of you both. You set an example of what it is possible. You are both such wonderful role models. The experience helped to rekindle my determination to work hard and nurture my practice. I have been on a journey to find my spiritual apex through yoga while creating a sustainable business. This goal often seems like an impossible dream. Watching you both gave me renewed hope and I am very grateful. I think the example that you set in working together is one that the women that attended your conference will benefit greatly from. I can’t imagine what my adult life would have been like if I had spent the weekend with the likes of you both when I was in my 20's and 30's. You should be very proud of yourselves and hopefully you recognize the impact you are having on many many women. I love you both. Thank you for your generosity and inclusivity."

  • Review by Robbie Luitjen from Tulum, Mexico

    "I just spent a week at a yoga retreat lead by Jessica Bellofatto in Tulum, Mexico. Amazing almost sums it up. It was my first of hopefully many more. I went alone and was the oldest. Yet, I never felt it in the best possible ways. The staff at Amansala was spot on and the food was healthy and delicious."

    "Jessica and Iris are extremely experienced. The constant hands on attention was such a plus. Jessica is the best instructor I’ve ever experienced in my 20 years of yoga. Although, I just met them it was as though I’d known them for years."

    "The ocean being feet away and the additional excursions between yoga and eating was a win-win. Did I say I loved it!? What a wonderful way to meet new women of like mindedness of all ages. Thank you Jessica for your devotion and attention to detail. See you next year!"

    "Jessica, You have no idea what kind of positive impact you made on me. I adored your personality and your amazing skills as a yoga teacher, we were very fortunate that we met you and your family and all the nice yogis we got to know in Tulum. My first yoga class here in Boise was almost a shock, I missed your voice and your energy. I will definitely always look into your schedule for your yoga retreats and make sure I will join you again. Thanks again for a fabulous week at Amansala."

  • Review by Amanda Jesenof from Rincon, Puerto Rico

    "The only thing I didn’t like about this trip was that it had to end! Jessica is a fabulous teacher and I loved all of the personalized attention she’s able to give with a group of this size. In four days, I became more confident in my yoga skills than I have in the last few years. The location for the retreat is absolutely unbeatable and the food was delicious; this will definitely not be the last time I go on one of Jessica’s retreats!"
