Acadia National Park
Physical fitness, yoga and music in a secluded setting on the rocky coast of Maine…can it get much better than that? Venture Outside is pleased to offer this unique and special holistic wellness retreat experience at the perfect location for recharging your body, mind, and spirit.
The Schoodic Peninsula is the “quiet” corner of Acadia National Park, known for its pounding surf, incredible sunsets, and soft spruce-fir cloaked landscape. With miles of hiking and mountain bike trails, a rugged shoreline of both quiet coves and rugged headlands, and miles of quiet paved park road, the Schoodic peninsula in Acadia N.P. provides the perfect setting for this active retreat. In partnership with Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, this retreat is held entirely within the park, and based from the Institute’s beautiful campus.
We invite you to reconnect to the power of your body by focusing on your physical fitness and well-being. We’ll choose from two activities and bike, hike, and paddle over this two day weekend retreat. We balance physical activity with just the right amount of reflection during and between outdoor excursions. In addition to the outdoor nature-based activities, you’ll practice yoga indoors and out to balance body and spirit, and be treated to restorative and entertaining music performances and chanting.
Explore and immerse yourself in the uninterrupted landscape of green forest, blue ocean, bold shoreline, and big sky. Find healing and inspiration by connecting with nature through simple meditations and interpretive nature “stops.”
