Escape to the beautiful island of Nantucket for an all-inclusive getaway. This retreat, which will be co-hosted by Caitlin Marcoux and Caroline Pope Peavy, will help you replenish your prana and nurture your sense of well-being. Deepen your connection to yourself and the natural beauty of Nantucket, with 2 daily

yoga and SUP yoga practices, nature hikes with Nantucket Walkabout, a guided bike tour with Nantucket by Bike, and a paddle tour of Nantucket’s stunning harbor. Enjoy historic downtown Nantucket, bike to some of the most incredible beaches on the east coast, and enjoy the local music scene at the world-famous Cisco Brewery. With a thoughtful balance of outdoor adventure as well as down time to simply relax pool side, this retreat has something for everyone.

Nantucket Harbor by Katie KaizerCaitlin & Caroline have a combined 12 years of yoga teaching experience, and have been yoga besties since meeting at a Kathryn Budig workshop at Kripalu in 2010. Together they will offer a full-spectrum practice, both solar and lunar in nature, with the intention of helping you find a deeper sense of equanimity throughout mind, body and spirit. Practices will be appropriate for all levels, and will address the needs and wants of the group. You can read Caitlin’s yoga bio here, and Caroline’s here.

Just Add Water: Nantucket will be capped at 12 participants to ensure that each student receives individualized attention, plenty of hands-on assists and the most detailed yoga and paddle instruction.

We hope with this miticulously-crafted retreat, introduce you to the natural beauty of the island Caitlin calls home, to deep your yoga practice, demystify the burgeoning art of standup paddle yoga, and highlight some of the other special people and services Nantucket has to offer.
