This was my second visit to Sewall House, and again I felt comfortable and at home right away. Nadja cooked wonderful meals, and Donna's yoga classes were the best. Her classes have helped me learn new approaches to yoga, which I find really valuable. I also was able to break through a fear and go kayaking for the first time,... More

My week at Sewall House was exactly the Reset I needed after a transitional time in my life. Everyone at Sewall focuses (and succeeds!) in creating a nurturing, family environment. The yoga was gentle and nurturing and a nice introduction to Kundalini, Ashtanga, and other types of yoga. The beauty of this retreat is you can "build your own adventure".... More

I had high expectations for this retreat. I had known Donna for probably 5 years and done a number of excellent yoga classes with her. She is so good and so concerned with the well being of her students that I thought she would offer a wonderful experience. But I was blown away by how my expectations were exceeded in... More

I recently spent an enchanted week at Sewall House Yoga Retreat. From the moment I arrived, Donna and Nadja made me feel relaxed and welcomed. My fellow guests were delightful and interesting. Sewall House is a cozy oasis of calm in rural Maine. I stayed in the Pine Room which was large, airy and bright and shared a bathroom which... More

Basically, if you want a simple and authentic Maine experience, and a caring and enriching yoga program, this is the place. The hostess/yoga teacher is giving and forgiving. Together with her talented staff, you will be well fed, nurtured and reconnected with the sense of self, whether you are advanced or novice. Classes are small, with lots of personal attention...

My 3-day yoga retreat at the Sewall House was beyond amazing. Donna, the host, was gracious, hospitable and she’s an amazing yoga teacher. Her team members, Stephen and Nadja, made the best vegetarian meals I’ve ever had - who knew that vegetarian meals could be so delicious, not-boring, and has so many layers of flavors?! The best was their sense... More

I love Kripalu, they have a lot to offer in terms of yoga, workshops, nutritious meals, and beautiful vistas, and I've been several times. I was looking for a yoga retreat and this time Kripalu was not what I had in mind. I searched extensively for a place that would meet my needs, a need for individualized yoga after a... More

Sewall house feels like my second home. I've been staying at Donna's retreat for 7 years now and I always enjoy my time immensely. The yoga is rejuvenating and we often have a chance to practice yoga on Loon Ledge which is at the center of a beautiful pristine lake. Donna is the perfect hostess, the food is amazing, and...

We expected the retreat center to be tucked in the woods, but instead it was in the main part of town and walkable to hikes and local amenities. Once inside the doors, we entered a beautiful caring, light filled space filled with history and nurturing. Our room was spacious and comfortable but the food and yoga made the experience memorable.... More

This is my second time staying at Sewall House Yoga Retreat. The first time I stayed was as a paying guest and this second time was under the work-study exchange program. I am so glad I applied for the program! I was at a point in my life where I needed to reconnect with nature, get some rest and more... More
