It’s our third year in the beautiful mountains of Western Maine - join us at one of the most stunning times of the year in a gorgeous mountain view estate complete with a hot tub, private heated pool, and fire pit. There’s nothing like a little time away to re-charge your batteries, discover something new about yourself, and find time for transformation and bliss. Immerse yourself in the limitless qualities of love, joy, compassion as we explore a weekend of yoga, connection, meditation and adventure.
We’ll start each day with a meditation (either in our stunning floor to ceiling windowed practice space facing the mountains or on the deck surrounded by nature!) and a yoga practice.
You can plan for a more active practice to start the day and a SPA Yoga® or restorative style class to wind down the evenings.
We’ll leave plenty of time for relaxing under the stars in the hot tub (or you might even want your morning coffee or tea out there!) exploring the area, journaling, and hiking and time outdoors.
All experience levels are welcome!

Yoga. Ocean. Sun. Santorini Greece Retreat: Saturday August 10-Saturday August 17, 2019
Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. Escape to this mythical, magical island oasis with its world famous sunsets, white washed cliff top villages against the background of brilliant sky and crystal clear blue oceans, black sand beaches, and volcanic cliffs.
Get away for 7 nights of bliss. Experience daily yoga and meditation practice, fresh, organic locally prepared meals, adventure and sun, all surrounded by ocean. Santorini is the perfect blend of relaxing escape and jumping off point for adventure. Explore volcanic hot springs, watch world famous sunsets from the Caldera cliffs and sun yourself by the pool or one of the beautiful black sand beaches close by.
About our venue: Your retreat home base of Oia is located high up on what is considered the balcony of Santorini. Oia is known for its amazing views of the volcano. Just two kilometers from the beach with inspiring walks and views all around, Oia is the perfect spot for relaxation, meditation, and taking in the natural beauty of our stunning location.
‘We strongly support the idea of organic nutrition, that’s why we offer our customers a wide range of Greek, traditional dishes using as many ingredients as we can from our own produce, such as cherry tomatoes, white aubergines, local cucumbers (katsounia), round zucchinis, string beans (ampelofasoula), grapes, figs, melons and watermelons. Take a stroll into our vegetable garden and get acquainted with the renowned, dry varieties which grow on the island and taste the fruit of our fig trees which surround your bungalows.’-Antonis, your host in Oia

Sanctuary. Blss. Surrender. Freedom. All things we can access when we connect to our own inner wisdom. The ability of a community and a group to create an intention and energetic shift is a powerful thing. In this two hour experience, you will connect not only to your own energy and your own inner sanctuary, but to that of the group and sangha at Maine Yoga Fest as we set the tone together for our weekend.
In this delicious and extended candle lit SPA Yoga® flow, allow your thinking mind to take a back seat as you let your senses of touch, smell, taste, and sound lead the way into a euphoric state that connects with your own inner wisdom and your own inner sanctuary.
Be part of a collective sensory experience - weave your intention in a net of intentions that will remain up at the festival for the length of the weekend. Awaken your sense of touch with self massage techniques throughout class and with luxurious hands on assists from a group of SPA yoga assistants trained in the art of SPA Yoga massage. Aromatherapy throughout the experience helps to guide you even deeper into a bliss like state, and live music with the Bhakti Collective will wash over you as you create a shift of energy and move awareness more inwardly with every single breath. Engage your sense of taste with a special chocolate meditation following a blissful yoga nidra. Get ready to walk out of the practice feeling like you’ve just left a spa!
The Bhakti Collective is a musical group devoted to creating primal and ethereal sounds to help ground students during their yoga practice. Every performance is unique to the energy and flow of the class, providing instances that are special to each present moment.
Please note: This is a stand alone ticket. You can purchase yours for Friday night alone, or in addition to a festival pass for the rest of the weekend!

In this slow-flow, floor based, whole-body sensory experience of SPA yoga®, we will use the signature SPA Yoga® sequence to journey the path of the subtle body using the Koshas, the five energetic sheaths within us, as touchstones. We will infuse the foundational SPA Yoga experience of a slow-flow, floor-based, whole-body sensory practice with pranayama and vivid visualizations designed to help you make a powerful connection to these energetic layers—physical body, prana energy body, sensing body, wisdom body, and radiant bliss body. We will harness the opening of body, breath, and mind to access these layers, culminating in a guided meditation and extra lucious savasana and yoga nidra that will connect you to your radiant bliss body in a way you that will leave you floating into the rest of your day. By engaging all five of the senses with soft candlelight, soothing music, aromatherapy, lots of hands-on, massage-like assists, and a renewed awareness of taste (and chocolate!), SPA Yoga® aligns practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation. Be prepared to feel like you've just walked out of a SPA!
