Healthy Habits and Yoga | Monhegan Island Wellness Retreat | Monhegan-Wellness

Retreats & Workshops

Every one needs to take time to rest, refocus and rejuvenate

Escape the heat, hustle and bustle

Join us on beautiful Monhegan Island for a reinvigorating yoga retreat, and get back to your life, renewed and invigorated. Located 12 miles off the coast of Maine, the remoteness of Monhegan paints a breathtaking backdrop for your relaxing getaway. You will leave the noise and chaos of life on the mainland and be greeted by a quiet serenity that will immediately begin healing your body and soul. I have lived on Monhegan for 17 years and know all of the best places to hike, practice yoga and meditate. I approach both my yoga and nutrition practice with a sense of joy, flexibility and fun. Monhegan Wellness offers a variety of retreats:

Individual and Group Yoga Sessions

Personal yoga sessions $75/hour up to 6 people, $10 per additional

Thai Yoga bodywork sessions $90/75 minute session

 

Thai YogaNuad Bo-Rarn, or Thai Yoga Bodywork is an ancient form of hands-on healing drawing its roots from the Buddhist temples of Thailand, Ayurveda and Yoga from India, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  This therapeutic modality consists of a series of yoga-like stretches, which the therapist performs on the clothed client on a mat on the floor.   The Thai Yoga that Tara practices comes from northern style Thai massage from the lineage of ITM, International Thai Massage School.  The manual therapy ofasana chikitsa, or the use of assisted yoga postures, promotes the restoration of an even flow of life force through the mind and body. It employs the usage of acupressure points that are found along energy lines, to increase the vital flow of prana/chi, or life force. $90/75 minutes

Personal Yoga sessions: Whether you are a beginner or experienced yogi, Tara will meet you at your abilities. Tara offers restorative, Vinyasa flow, gentle, moderate and vigorous yoga for all levels. $75/hour
