The island truly offers every facet of a great retreat destination. Want to renew the mind, body, and spirit connection? Just try to avoid it, while breathing the fresh air and listening to the lapping sounds of Lake Superior on sandy beaches. Nature is the cure for the pressures that weigh heavily on shoulders of busy women. Adventurers and athletes will appreciate the world class kayaking available during this retreat. Women experience a release during challenging and restorative yoga sessions that leave the body feeling spacious, strengthened, and open. On this retreat you will understand the true meaning of island time.
We are proud to partner with The Inn on Madeline Island to offer our retreaters a luxurious place to rest their heads at the end of the day. Wake up in the morning to the sounds of lapping waves. After a delicious simple breakfast you will start your day off in the great room overlooking Lake Superior to experience your morning yoga session.
Amy has been leading yoga retreats for five years on Madeline Island and in June of 2014 begin a yearly retreat to Italy to experience an amazing adventure. Working with some of the best guides and her favorite people she is looking forward to re-creating a wonderful adventure for another group. Collaborating with Hannah is only icing on this retreat cake.
AFTER A SAILING TRIP to Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, Mary Dougherty transplanted her family of seven plus four dogs from the suburbs of Minneapolis to Bayfield (population 487). She opened and co-ran Good Thyme Restaurant, recognized as one of the top dining experiences in northern Wisconsin, for four years. She went on to create the Cookery Maven blog and Words for Water, a photography project giving voice to people about the importance of fresh water. Founder of the nonprofit Farms Not Factories, she now works as a community organizer for the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project. You can find her most mornings at the beach with her dogs and most nights in her kitchen cooking for family and friends. She is, as Edible Magazine reported in 2012, “the quintessential perfect host.”
