Monhegan Island Wellness Retreats

The first time I set foot on Monhegan Island, about 16 years ago, I knew I had landed somewhere very special and I immediately felt the healing benefits. I had been living in big cities including Los Angeles and New York, the peaceful remoteness of Monhegan was exactly what I needed after the hectic, high energy pace of those other places. Now I have been living here for over 12 years and I am still amazed on a daily basis by the beauty of Monhegan and the healing energy that is embedded in the rocks and sea.

I started Monhegan Wellness with the mission of sharing my home, it’s beauty and the healing energy with as many people as possible.

I practice Yoga year-round outside on the highest cliffs on the East Coast overlooking amazing vistas. My practice is elevated because of my surroundings and I want you to get to have a similar experience.

Monhegan Wellness offers many opportunities for men and women to leave the busy world behind and participate in your personal journey to health and wellness.

Located 12 miles off the coast of Maine, Monhegan Island is a beautiful, relaxing destination where people come to escape the stresses of daily life, unwind, heal and nourish themselves. The peaceful remoteness of Monhegan has a natural ability to soothe the body and the soul.

We at Monhegan Wellness build on this experience by giving retreat participants the space and knowledge to take full advantage of the Island’s healing energy.

As a Health Coach, Tara creates a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health objectives. She has studied over 100 dietary theories and uses practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.

Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

No one diet works for everyone.

Tara will guide you in learning

  • To tune into your body’s needs vs. desires
