"Outstanding, Beautiful, Refreshing "

Exceeded my expectations. Everything was perfect.. from the food, community, schedule, environment. Suggested for anyone, of any age. I think my entire group extended their stay at least one night because it was so unbelievably refreshing.

"Enlightening experience "

JB is a wonderful host. I enjoyed my retreat at Santosha. Yoga instructors were excellent, food was delicious and the house is beautiful and welcoming. There is a structured schedule that includes two yoga practices a day and one meditation. There are also other activities during the day you can choose to attend. However all activities are optional and you can make your retreat as flexible as you want.

The location, services, atmosphere and hospitality were all that I expected and exactly what I needed. A fabulous place to rest your mind and expand your knowledge and yoga practice.

"Contentment "

Santosha on the Kennebec provides a beautiful environment to turn inward and concentrate on your practice. My daughter and I felt totally relaxed and cared for as we worked on our own contentment. The shared meals and conversation around topics we care about were meaningful and thought provoking. The yogi in residence, Bridget, was extremely knowledgeable and made sure all levels of practice were personally challenging. As a yoga beginner, I felt included and nutured to dig deeper and improve my physical poses as well as my mental stamina.

"Much needed break for relaxation and learning "

This was the perfect vacation for someone who’s into yoga and self reflection! The location overlooked the serene Kennebec river. The structure provides something for everyone: hikes, meditation, great homecooked food (like really delicious), hot tub to wind down, lot of time for quiet self reflection with emphasis on intentional living and a wonderful sense of community. It just all came together so beautifully!!! Thanks JB for making my first vacation after a long pandemic so peaceful and enjoyable!!!

"A unique experience "

JB has created a wonderful space to practice yoga and a welcoming atmosphere for all individuals. The combination of yoga practice sessions and Dharma talks made for a complete mind/body experience. I’m extremely grateful to have found this place.

I found the interaction with JB to be the best part of my experience. The setting and the daily yoga practice/teachings were what I enjoyed. It was also very interesting to meet the other participants and learning about their lives and interests.

"Kennebec bliss"

We loved immersing into a calm and serene setting overlooking the Kennebec river. It was ideally suited for a peaceful and mindful few days that allowed us to slow down and be present. The yoga studio was immersed in natural light and honey colored wood and that made for a serene and intimate setting. Food was prepared with a lot of skill and imagination. It was amazingly delicious using influences from all over the world. Thank you JB for welcoming us into a beautifully crafted and delightful experience.

"The dream yoga & writing retreat in gorgeous Maine "

I had the most wonderful week at Santosha on the Kennebec with JB. With both powerful and restorative yoga on offer, time to write and daily prompts, epic views and even better food this was the perfect COVID-safe week away from the city. Socially distanced yoga made for a terrific experience flowing in a safe way. With epic day trips from hikes to foraging to trail running it was a brilliant end to end retreat and experience. For any dog lovers the resident pup Pamplemousse will never turn down a play session or a walk in the woods. I will be back and cannot recommend Santosha on the Kennebec highly enough! I learnt so much and met some great yogis and writers along the way. Thank you JB & team!

"Magic in Maine "

Santosha provides a take your breath away setting and a program that breathes new life into your soul. Everything about the retreat is top tier: the yoga, the guided meditation, the accommodations, COVID safety and the food is truly next level. You’ll come away from a visit to Santosha refreshed and feeling like your whole self. JB, the owner has the ability to make you feel like an old friend which creates a sense of comfort and ease that only adds to the beautiful setting.

If you have the opportunity to go to Santosha you should absolutely take it.

"This retreat went far above & beyond any expectations I had."

I was welcomed by JennyBess Dulac with such generosity and kindness. I appreciate all the wisdom she shared with me, she took the time to teach me the beginning principals and philosophy of yoga and meditation. JennyBess Dulac was a thoughtful and supportive listener to everything I said without any judgement. She gave me such positive feedback and encouragement on my writing, that I continued to write, where in the past I would have stopped at the very beginning. JennyBass Dulac provided delicious, nourishing home-cooked meals for me, three times a day, every day. She is an extraordinary and wonderful person, whom I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet. This retreat went far above and beyond any expectations I had. I arrived completely burnt-out, stressed out and exhausted. I left refreshed, peaceful and rejuvenated. JennyBess Dulac provided a place of restoration and healing.
