5 day retreat at our peaceful yoga studio overlooking St. Margaret’s Bay. Explore meditation, asana, and yogic philosophy, balanced with bicycle and kayak forays, and the nourishment of great food.
Freewheeling’s home base is in a coastal paradise on the beautiful Aspotogan Peninsula. No wonder we were inspired to build a yoga studio on the edge of the ocean here. We watch whales, seals, gulls, eagles, and occasionally, fishermen, kayakers and sailboats in Virabhadrasana (Warrior posture), staring out at the always changing ocean in Padmasana (Lotus posture) and are lulled into blissful Savasana (relaxation pose) by the sound of waves.
From our doorstep, we can enjoy quiet and picturesque cycling through fishing villages and past beaches, we can meander along the granite and wooded coastline in ocean kayaks, walk on the pretty wilderness trails of the Aspotogan Peninsula, and spend precious solitary time gazing at the ocean. Accommodations are simple - dormitory style or camping. Vegetarian meals are served on the premises, prepared for us daily using locally grown, organic ingredients whenever available.
Yoga teacher and Freewheeling’s co-owner and founder, Cathy Guest, is your guide and facilitator for the retreat. In addition to her skills on her bicycle and in the kayak, she has training and expertise in writing, dance, chant and mantra, shamanic studies, and philosophical and religious enquiry. She is also a great cook!
Guided Cost: $1495 per person, based on four to eight participants. Per person prices are lower for groups of eight or more, and higher for fewer than four. Included are all meals and snacks, all yoga sessions with Cathy, B&B accommodations, guided kayaking, walking and cycling during the retreat period (not including equipment rental, see prices below), and any extra sessions related to the retreat (yoga dance, chant, and drumming)
