Join Maine Yoga Adventures on an autumnal adventure that blends yoga, hiking, gourmet vegetarian food, relaxing, and whitewater rafting all together into one fabulous weekend.

Adventurers will enjoy lodging at the Pleasant Pond Inn, a recently renovated building located in peaceful Caratunk, Maine. The inn boasts a beautiful dining area and a large screened porch facing Pleasant Pond. Adventurers will have the option of multiple bedrooms with shared bathrooms.

All meals are included and prepared by Dead River Expeditions Event Coordinator Emily Wolf and River Manager & Senior Guide Kevin Ross. Emily & Kevin have years of restaurant experience and certainly know how to make amazing food! MYA will be treated to vegetarian, organic and locally sourced as much as possible yummy food all weekend long.

Adventurers will arrive Friday evening and slowly settle in to enjoy dinner by 6pm. Holly, founder of MYA, will lead an evening yoga session before bed to get minds clear and bodies flowing. Saturday will begin with more yoga then we’ll move onto breakfast. Adventurers can enjoy some free time to take in the beauty of Pleasant Pond.

Next up is a guided hike up Pleasant Pond Mountain for a mountaintop yoga/meditation session and a tasty bagged lunch. More free time will follow the hike before we move onto our evening meal. A gentle yoga practice will ease adventurers right into their bedtime.

Sunday morning also begins with yoga and more yummy food. Then we’ll get ready to pack up and depart for the rafting base. Oh yes! It’ll be time to enjoy a day of whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River!

Please know that this weekend adventure is perfect for both beginning yogis and beginning rafting adventurers; also great for those with more experience.
Cost: $575 includes multiple yoga practices, meals, guided hiking & rafting, and wicked fun w/ great people…
