In need of some R&R and head-clearing time, I spent a week at the Sewall House yoga retreat in Island Falls. Island Falls is a teeny little town about an hour and change north of Bangor, and 30 or so minutes south of Baxter State Park. With a car (important!) it's easy to get around and when I wasn't practicing yoga I was attempting to hike flooded trails, kayaking, and getting rain-soaked while exploring the town. While the locale wasn't quite what I imagined in terms of seclusion (the house is in town, I expected in woods), it was an immensely beneficial week with some really inspiring people.
