This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a writing retreat fueled by yoga practice and the inspirational surroundings of Maine. Open to all writers, even those that do not yet think of themselves as writers, the retreat will offer structured writing exercises, a supportive environment for sharing your work, individual writing time, and tips on how to integrate writing into your life. Rejuvenate your creative spirit. Set intentions during your yoga practice.
The Sewall House is 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. All 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 our off season, they can arrange special retreats if requested. Each participant who pays for the course, room, and board will have a private bedroom for rest and study. The rooms are wonderful, comfortable, and beautifully furnished.
Yoga/ Writing workshop begins on Saturday, October 12, 2019, at 15:00. The closing session ends on Monday, October 14, 2019, at 13:00.

Sewall House is located in a small village in northern Maine. It is only 30 miles from the Canada-United States border. The bordering town in United States is Houlton, Maine (passport required). In Canada, the bordering town is Woodstock, New Brunswick which is 92 kilometers west of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
Northern Maine is not highly populated. The Sewall House is situated in a town of 700 people with two nearby lakes and Baxter State Park with its mighty Mt. Katahdin. There are gift shops nearby, a number 1 rated 18 hole golf course, one restaurant, and a few diners but no commercial chain stores or coffee houses. Island Falls is a pure small-town in New England.
