Retreat From the Everyday
Rejuvenating Spa Retreats
“A tranquil seaside escape dedicated to the art of well-being.” These words from The Spa at The Samoset in Rockport, Maine, are relaxing enough. But it gets even better with their four luxurious treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, and a private outdoor patio with beautiful ocean views.
The Fairwinds Spa at Sebasco Harbor Resort invites guests to a spa experience that relaxes, rejuvenates and balances the spirit — from aromatic facials to therapeutic massages to restorative body treatments. And the sounds of the sea you hear are actually the sounds of the sea.
In York Harbor, The Spa at the Stage Neck Inn offers relaxing, invigorating spa treatments for individuals and couples, including facials, massage therapy and hot stone treatments. All in the comfort and serenity of a boutique oceanfront hotel.
Outdoor Yoga Overlooking a View
In yoga, there’s the mountain pose and the tree pose, both of which work perfectly for an outdoor yoga class with a view. Whether it’s in a nature park, on a bluff or at the beach, just inhale, exhale and enjoy the visualization.
Ashley Flowers Yoga in Portland offers all levels of outdoor yoga in a beautiful park setting. As their own inspirational words say: “Feel your feet on the earth. Reach your hands to the sky. Let your soul expand.”
Bar Harbor’s Yoga In Your Park connects body, mind and spirit at locations in Acadia National Park, including Cadillac Mountain, Sand Beach and Beech Mountain. The local program has also connected with kindred spirits in parks around the country.
