Join us for a beautiful day on Monhegan Island! The adventure begins with a brilliant boat ride from Port Clyde out through the islands and waters of Muscongus Bay. Wildlife sightings – porpoises, seals, eagles, seabirds, and the occasional Minke whale – are a real treat.
Upon arrival on Monhegan, we’ll gather and set our intentions for the day! The morning hike will take us to water's edge, through forested trails, and along breathtaking cliffs. We’ll practice yoga and meditation at various spots along the way! The middle of the day will feature free time to enjoy lunch, hike additional trails, relax in a favorite spot on the island, swim in the invigorating ocean, etc. We’ll gather back together in the afternoon for restorative yoga, meditation, and relaxation to close out our island time. The day ends with a gorgeous boat ride home to the mainland.
