They are doing all that they can to ensure a diverse, bright future. Maine Yoga Adventures is very excited to visit with a shared love for nature and community!

Island Open House on The Goslings in Casco Bay @ Mere Point Boat Launch
Jul 20 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Island Open House on The Goslings in Casco Bay @ Mere Point Boat Launch | Brunswick | Maine | United States

Maine Coast Heritage Trust will be offering FREE boat shuttles to The Goslings islands in upper Casco Bay!

Connected by a sand bar at low tide, small beaches on the two Goslings offer a perfect place to soak up the sun or search for treasures carried in on the tide. Explore the shady island interiors or climb around the perimeter of the islands and bring your binoculars to spy on the seal colony on the nearby rock ledges.

We’ll be grilling hot dogs on the beach to complete the perfect island getaway and laidback vibe of a visit to The Goslings. The large cove is often scattered with local boaters rafted together to enjoy the great pleasure of a warm summer day in Maine. If you have your own boat, meet us there!

Boat Shuttles:
Shuttles to the island will depart from the Mere Point public boat launch on Birch Island Road, Brunswick between the hours of 10 am and 1:30 pm. (The final shuttle will return from the island at 2:45 pm)

We’ll travel aboard open skiffs which can accommodate 5-8 people at a time. The ride to the Goslings is approximately 15 minutes. We will provide mandatory life vests or bring your own if you have one.

Participants must be agile enough to step off the dock into a small boat and then climb out over the side of the boat onto the beach at the island. At The Goslings, be prepared to get your feet wet as we bump up on the beach to disembark.

This trip is appropriate (and encouraged!) for children.

The shuttles will depart from the boat launch approximately every 15 minutes between 10:00 am and 1:30 pm. The last boat over to the island leaves at 1:30 pm.

We will be sending people to the island in order of arrival at the boat launch.

There is no charge for this event. We recommend you register online for this event (https://mcht.org/trips-events/2018-07-20-the-goslings-open-house) so we know how many people to expect – but this does not guarantee your spot on a boat. Please sign in with the MCHT greeters upon your arrival at the dock.

What to Bring:

Wear footwear appropriate for climbing along on the rocky shoreline, sandy beaches, and paths. Be prepared to get your feet wet disembarking from the boat at the island. Wear a bathing suit and bring a towel if you’d like to swim.

There are no bathroom facilities on the islands or boats. Please be prepared to carry any waste off the island. There are bathroom facilities at the boat launch on the mainland.

Questions? Call us at (207) 729-7366.

Adult Summer Camp Weekend @ Tops'l Farm
Aug 10 – Aug 12 all-day
Adult Summer Camp Weekend @ Tops'l Farm | Waldoboro | Maine | United States

How does a weekend with your pals spent throwing axes, foraging for cocktails, playing barn games & cruising the Maine coast sound? Yeah, that’s what we thought. We have an epic weekend planned for our 2nd annual Adult Summer Camp weekend and hope you and your pals can join us. Let’s just break down the itinerary for you and we’ll see how fast you can herd that group of friends you have together and claim your spots!

Friday Night — We are putting together a ridonkulas welcome cornucopia at the campsites…a cured meats/local cheese/dippy-things bonanza and of course accompanied by adult beverages. Camp fires, s’mores & perhaps a ghost story or two will cap the evening off. (cue starry skies, the smell of pine and deliciously comfy bedding).

Saturday — Kick the day off with an open fire breakfast, enjoyed family style in the middle of the woods with cider mimosas, and make plans for the day. Yoga in the yurt? Hiking? Naps? Or yes, all three. Take the day to explore this special area in Maine’s mid-coast — we can hook you up with suggestions and optional custom services for the day! Just ask.

Saturday Night — Put on your walkin’ shoes. We’ll be moving through the different magical spots at Tops’l Farm for a progressive and locally sourced meal — starting at the barn with lawn games & cocktails — finishing at the campground for desert and more good times.

Sunday — Bloody Marys at the barn on your way out with optional archery school to cap off the weekend.

Cost: $499/person for a shared cabin — includes breakfasts & dinners and accommodations. Some activities included – others are a la cart.

SUP Yoga Retreat @ Red Quill Cabin
Sep 14 @ 5:00 pm – Sep 16 @ 1:00 pm
SUP Yoga Retreat @ Red Quill Cabin | Rangeley | Maine | United States

Join us for a 2-night, 3-day retreat that combines adventures of the body (Stand-Up-Paddle-Boarding) with adventures of the soul (yoga twice a day, journaling, meditation and relaxation). All athletic abilities are welcome—come renew your spirit and reawaken your passion! Registration closes September 1st.

“SUP Yoga improves balance, strength, flexibility, and mindfulness! Is it challenging? Yes! If you can stand on two feet, odds are you can stand on a paddle board! This is a great way to challenge yourself to try something new without having to worry about getting hurt. If you fall off, the water will catch you!” ~Ashley Flowers

Each day, we facilitate 2-3 yoga practices to take advantage of the natural rhythms of the body: an energizing morning practice, a mid-day practice and a restorative, relaxing evening practice. We also tailor our yoga practice to complement the season and our outdoor activities.
