JBYoga Yoga Retreat and SUP Camp in USA Program

Whilst the end of summer is slowly rolling in, the pace of coastal life is tuning down to a beautiful, organic feel. September by the Atlantic Ocean is a wonderful time to surf, stand up paddleboard, and transition your yoga practice into fall.

Join Jessica and Nadia for this all women retreat as you dive deep into practice on and off the mats and on and off our boards. Wake up everyday and join the beach yoga class before jumping into one of the surf or stand up paddleboard yoga classes, and take time in the evening to relax, unwind, and participate in some really amazing goal setting and discussions around how to tap into you potential in creating a life you are in love with.

A perfect solo or with girlfriend getaway to get salty in the ocean, move freely on your mat and nourish your body before the transition of fall sets in. Fun, tears, and new connections guaranteed!

How to get there

Arrival by car

Rental cars are available from Portland International Jetport Airport (PWM) and General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport (BOS). If you are coming from the Montreal area, York, Maine is about a 5.5 hour drive southeast of the border. If you have a few days on either end of the retreat - renting a car or driving is a great option as it allows you to take time and discover the East Coast and its many beautiful sights and beaches.

Some guests also enjoy carpooling. The JBYoga team is happy to try and link you up with other guests coming from the Montreal area or flying into the same hubs as you. You can then share the cost of a rental car and get to know yourselves better before arriving to the retreat home.
