AWAKEN YOUR SPIRIT WITH 
YOGA, ART & NATURE IN MAINE - 
July 10-15, 2020

YOGA, MEDITATION & HEALING

Join us on some of the most beautiful beaches in Coastal Maine for outdoor (and indoor) Kundalini & Hatha traditions. Relax and go deep into yourself with yoga and meditation and with nature and the arts. Schedule a personal Reiki healing session with Lola, let go of stress, and reconnect with yourself on every level!

ENJOY NATURE & 
THE OUTDOORS

You'll love this retreat! We'll be outdoors a lot! We'll visit local beaches, hike and bike locally, head to Portland ME for a day, visit the Maine Wildlife Park, sail away on the Harbor Lights & Sights cruise for a lighthouse tour, build some sand castles at the beach and more!

LOVE THE ARTS

Kennebunk ME has many lovely art galleries to visit; Yoga Lola has chosen three to visit on our "Art Day Out"! We'll visit the Ogunquit Museum, the Maine Art Gallery, and the Landmark Gallery. This will also be our day for shopping or just walking around in this lovely little town! 

Sweet Release

This 6-day/5-night experience touches us at every level. Inside, outside, and all around our physical, mental, spiritual and emotional being. We'll open up more fully to life and our authentic selves through yoga, meditation, communing with nature, contact with water both on land and by sea, and explore the outdoors in general through outdoor yoga, biking and hiking. We'll experience many different areas of Maine, including Saco, Kennebunk, Portland and more. We'll refine our spiritual aesthetics through art and chanting, and optionally, connect with our deepest powers of healing through an optional Reiki healing session and/or the healing that comes through connection with animals in the Yoga with Horses practice.
