This fresh air retreat will be a delightful balance of socially-distanced group practice and individual practice time. We will take great care to support everyone's experience. The ocean breeze will be our sanctuary.
*As with any outdoor retreat, we will adapt to the weather conditions (e.g. sun, wind, fog, rain) and practice with whatever arises in the moment. If rain or big seas are in the forecast, we will postpone. If showers are predicted with some sun, we will go! The schedule gives a general idea of the flow of the day but when in nature, one can expect changes.
Limited to 14 participants.
Level: Everyone is welcome. A general comfort level with varying conditions (e.g. aboard a schooner, hiking on an island, etc.) is helpful. Stretching out of your comfort zone is good too!
What to bring: A mask (to be worn at arrival and departure, as well as at times during the day), a day pack, layers for changing temperatures, sturdy hiking shoes, bug spray, a sun hat, sunscreen, a picnic lunch and snacks, and water. We encourage everyone to leave cell phones tucked into backpacks.
Cost: $130-150 sliding scale includes sailing aboard the Schooner Olad, park entranace fee at Warren Island, yoga and meditation, and the magic of the bay. If you are able to pay the full amount, you will help someone else participate. Thank you!
