Our retreat is designed for rest and renewal away from the everyday movement of the world. You are immersed in a private, beautiful setting surrounded by nature and sounds of the sea. In this atmosphere of rest and renewal, we turn on the practices of asana, pranyama, and meditation to heal, strengthen, revitalize, and deepen the experience of self-understanding. Our retreat begins as we return to ourselves amidst the beauty of the natural world.

This has been my first personal retreat in over 20 years.  And, it has been profoundly wonderful and important in my self-growth. I deeply appreciate the warm and generous atmosphere created by Lucy and the organizers and all the participants.   I learned about meditation and feel comfortable beginning that practice again.  I loved all the yoga classes, and I loved the feeling of being in the friendly company of other journeyers.  Thank you.-Deb Selkow 2012

This trip surpassed all expectations.  I had hoped to leave here a bit more rested than I arrived and with a few less kinks in my neck.  I am instead leaving with all of that plus a much lighter soul and the promises of better days.  Thank you!  Heather Iafrati  2012

I'm still smiling and feeling the "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" effects of the beautiful Maine retreat..saying "thank you" for the opportunity doesn't seem to express the joy and gratitude I feel. It was just perfect!!! My car was the last to roll out of the parking lot - Pam and I took spent a little extra time taking in the everty feeling, smell and sight we could before opening the car doors to head back home. I was looking forward to an opportunity to feel that "sweet yoga community" spirit from the weekend - it was all that an so much more....thank you Lucy -JoAnn 2011

Well organized-well balanced soothing, calming, relaxing informative and fun! Beach setting is incredible! Wonderful to spend a beautiful weekend with friends and like-minded people. - Natalie Graham Retreat  09

Very peaceful, relaxing.. good sense of community. The balance of free time and yoga retreat activities was good. Also, the intensity of the yoga was good. Although, I can do more challenging yoga, that is not what I personally am looking for at a retreat. I thought all was perfect as it was! - Lisa Toole Thank you once again for creating this great experience for us! It is something I always look forward to each year! It is relaxing and energizing! - Linda Yates

Great Yoga, Great company, Great location! - Jean Kitchen

Always brings me a sense of peace! - Anna Mary Kramer
