Our instructors will help you develop a balanced practice that will serve you well in all aspects of your life. There will also be time to explore the incredible Big Cove YMCA Camp site to canoe, hike and more!

Shared accommodations and meals are included in your fees. Please bring your own yoga mat as well as a block and strap if you have them. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the site.
