When I go to Monhegan Island, part of my relaxing vacation is getting Thai massages and taking restorative yoga with Tara. I broke my arm last March at work, and it was still healing when I went to Monhegan. The Thai massages seemed to have relieved my inflammation and increased my circulation. Tara is a master at this!

When the Chi hiking retreat fell through, Tara still offered to have me come out to Monhegan for a getaway including hiking, yoga, nutrition, and a thai bodywork. Yoga by the ocean really does stir up your soul and offers inspiration. Tara was a great companion for my first visit here and has a gentle yoga instruction. I can't wait... More

This is an amazing five day springtime Art & Yoga retreat. There were multiple opportunities for yoga. We learned from each other and island artists, ate wonderful food, renewed and deepened friendships and made new friends, created inspired art (drawings, paintings, photographs and more), and developed a deep sense of camaraderie. Special thanks to Kika and Tara for their planning... More

The Monhegan Wellness retreat led by Tara Hire was my first experience of Monhegan Island. It was absolutely magical! I spent five days this May together with a group pf creative, positive and engaging women - painting, doing yoga, walking and talking. The energy in the group was incredibly positive and supportive. The surroundings were breathtaking and the paths on... More

Monhegan Island is already magical, and visiting Tara’s Monhegan Wellness while on the island adds to that magic. I visited in late August-early September 2015 and took Tara’s dextox yoga retreat and several classes during my stay. I have done yoga at the ocean before, but the views from the shipwreck on a gorgeous September afternoon were stunning. Truly great... More

I had the opportunity to participate in the Hiking and Yoga Retreat yesterday. From the ferry ride out of Port Clyde, to arriving on the Island on Monhegan, there was positive energy flowing from all participants, on the misty, cloudy Sunday. Tara was a gracious Leader from the minute of our arrival, to the minute of our departure. She led... More

This special five day retreat, hosted by Tara Hire of Monhegan Wellness and artist Kika Nigals was well planned and perfect for a group of artists & photographers. The morning yoga sessions relaxed and opened us to creating art, visits to local artists’ studios inspired and educated us and the additional adventures were perfect for our group.

A special 5 day retreat was enjoyed on Island of Monhegan. It was thoughtfully prepared and included everything we needed. We had structure, and a little free time. Tara's food preparations were admirable, delicious and healthy. Her yoga was refreshing. The accommodations wonderful. The yoga studio is new under construction, but fresh and clean.
