Presence and Renewal in Maine

Be present and renew this summer with JJ!

Reconnect with nature, your yoga practice, and kindred spirits on a little island just outside of Stonington, Maine. Practice Surya Chandra Healing Yoga with JJ Gormley amidst the tall pine trees, salty waves crashing against giant granite boulders, and unforgettable sunsets that make the "Down East and Acadia" region of Maine a famous and beloved place to visit. 

Activities include daily yoga with JJ, kayaking, healthy eating, visits to local farmers markets and many art galleries, and easeful hikes through pristine nature reserves. Don't worry - there will also be plenty of time for rest and relaxation - enjoy a tea on the rocks in front of the house while overlooking iconic Penobscot Bay, journal on your own private beach, or delve into a good book next to the hearth...all while listening to the ocean waves lap against the shores and the sounds of distant fog horns.
