What people think about Sewall House

Rave Yoga Retreat

Above and beyond. I am blown away. It was so relaxing. Everything was so easy. Kayaking was a short distance on a beautiful brilliant blue lake, under a big sky and surrounded by trees. I learned so much in yoga – totally individualized, fun from teachers with outstanding experience. I loved cuddling up with Beau (pooch) and Shoepee(sp?) kitty. My heart is full. Comfort food healthy yumm, yummm yummm meals. Very unusual. Offers so much. House is so cozy. Go do it.


Exactly what I needed. I was in a major transition from a difficult 4 years into a new job and life chapter. Sewall House far
exceeded my expectations. The location was beautiful, especially in peak fall season. The house was peaceful and welcoming. Donna and Ajit catered to our every need and made me feel like I was part of their family. There was a good blend of meditation and yoga that worked for all levels. What I liked most was that this was not a trendy, “take photos of yourself in yoga poses for Instagram” type place. If fancy is what you’re seeking, this might not fit the bill. If good for the soul, mind, and body is what you need, I highly recommend it.

I am a Sewall House regular, returning each year in the last few years. I always think my upcoming visit cannot top my last, but somehow it always does. This year the other guests were even more comfortable to hang out with–in the yoga studio, at the dinner table, and on Loon Ledge on the Lake–than ever before, but if I wanted solitude, I could drift away to my spacious, charming bedroom for an afternoon siesta–or stroll the tiny town to browse the consignment shop or just gaze at the island in the falls. They are always improving their home: a fresh new bathroom downstairs makes everything even more inviting. And yoga with Donna is the best: I always think I will be too sore to take the next class, but I always take it, and I never feel more flexible and balanced than when I am at Sewall House.

Just a note to say thank you for a wonderful spiritual retreat at Sewall House. Michelle and I enjoyed our time there together so much. Doing yoga together brought us closer than we had ever been. Each morning since we have been home the yoga mats come out and we did the tape we bought from you on our living room floor. She left to go back to Arizona today. She made me a promise to continue yoga while she is gone. It makes me feel still connected to her. Hope you have continued success at your home for healing.”

A belated but heartfelt thank you for the wonderful experience for Suzanne and I. We loved the experience – combination of healthy food (delicious), healthy body (yoga) and healthy mind- beautiful Maine with waterfalls. lakes, flowers, greenery and kind people. What a great time we had. I am recommending to friends and coworkers.  ( my sister and I will come). Most of all thank you for the positive direction in my life. I eat much healthier, practice yoga 3-5 x a week, a good start! You were fantastic! Keep up the good work in your lives and the effort to make the world a better place.
