yoga and meditation retreat

Rolling Meadows, is a 100 acre meditation and yoga retreat center over-looking the hills of coastal Maine.

It provides an ideal environment for spiritual renewal supported by the practices of yoga and meditation.

Scheduled silent meditation and yoga retreats for up to 11 participants in a charming  1840’s New England farmhouse are offered throughout the year.

Yoga Retreats are also held in India, Costa Rica, Italy and Sweden.

The practices of meditation, classical hatha yoga, yin and restorative yoga, pranayama, and self inquiry create the flow of the day with personal time between sessions for solitude, reflection, enjoying the beauty and peace of the land and walking the extensive trails that weave thru out the property. 

The form of the yoga retreats  provide a supportive environment, allowing you to begin or deepen practices, to shed light on habituated patterns of behavior, to take personal time for digesting life experience and to recognize the ease and peace of our true nature.

A container of shared silence is maintained during these yoga retreats, except during the sessions and question and answer periods. Silence is restful, being the mirror of your natural state.  The silent community creates a supportive environment in which to surrender to the inner silence, allowing the body and mind to quiet while being aware of our conditioned beliefs and the ever available presence of your True Nature.

USA Today,, Travel & and Outside Magazine have called Rolling Meadows Retreat one of the top ten places to take a yoga retreat.
