Join Sally Delisle & Megan Morris for a getaway that inspires people to unplug, love the lake life and bask in the nature that surrounds us. Enjoy the vibrant colors of fall, walk through the woods and listen to the lapping water as you move through your yoga practice.

Sept 29 – Oct 2, 2022

It’s time for a magical weekend of self-care. This three-night retreat will take place on the tranquil shores of Cobbosseecontee Lake in central Maine and features activities that promote all aspects of health & wellness.

Fall into nature, fall into beauty, fall into three days of perfection and peace. Experience yoga, hiking, swimming, boating, delicious food and more.

This is the perfect retreat to attend with friends, couples or solo!

Disconnect from the busyness of life and reconnect with yourself. A short break is necessary to rest, recharge, and simply relax.

✅ Practice yoga by the water.
✅ Walk through the woods.
✅ Go swimming or boating in the lake.
✅ Enjoy the sunset.
✅ Nourish yourself with delicious food.
✅ Take the time you need to simply be.

Venue

This retreat takes place at a private residence. The address will be shared after registration. Getting to Cobbosseecontee Lake is easy breezy. Detailed information will be provided prior to the trip, but for prepping purposes, note that the lake is one hour north of Portland International Jetport and one hour south of Bangor International Airport.

Please note, because it is a private residence, there are no room keys like a hotel. Valuables should be left at home. The venue is not wheelchair accessible and requires traversing stairs.

I'm ready for Maine...
