Sewall House Yoga Retreat has discovered since they opened in 1997 that Sewall House especially seems a good choice for people going through some sort of change in their life, whether it be work-related, relationship or health-related. People also choose them because they are in Maine in a uniquely inviting historic home.

Sewall House Yoga Retreat guests have also shared that the smaller number of attendees feels less like a "university" than some of the larger yoga retreats. They also have an isolated camp on the nearby lake, rented by special application and for overnight stays. During their off-season, Sewall House Yoga Retreat can arrange special retreats if requested.

The rooms

Each participant who pays for the course, room, and board will have a private bedroom for rest and study. The rooms are roomy, comfortable, and beautifully furnished. Sewall House Yoga Retreat has six bedrooms, five of them have full sized beds (one has a full bath) and there is one room with a queen-sized bed. This means that Sewall House Yoga Retreat never rooms strangers with each other.

The option is to have your own private room or to share a bed, such as couples or friends. Sewall House Yoga Retreat can pull in an additional mattress for double occupancy guests who prefer that but there is only one bed per spacious bedroom.

The environment of Sewall House gives the future teachers the opportunity to fully concentrate on their studies. Your work will then help you incorporate and build what you have learned into your own practice, homework and potential as a teacher. It is important that you are able to commit to the entire program of this yoga instructor training in Maine.

The length of the session will be three weeks. Each day the sessions will be 10 hours. Thus, there will be a total of 3 weeks of sessions to meet all of the requirements of the 200 hour training plus homework.
