Be Still, Be Well: A Wellness Retreat

February 20 - 24, 2022

At Fogo Island Inn, we’re looking inward in March, taking the time to stop, be still, and listen, on a Wellness Retreat.

Join us from February 20 – 24 for a flexible itinerary that will ground and restore you.

Jennifer Charles, founder of Wild Cove Wellness, will lead sessions in guided meditation and morning yoga flow. Our Outdoor Adventure Guide, Lorie Penton, will teach participants about the wellness benefits of botanicals in afternoon tea-tasting seminars. You can connect with nature on hikes, cabin excursions, or even pond skating (depending on the weather). Quieter pursuits include curling up by a warm woodstove, to read or journal, or taking time to indulge in massage therapy. And you can unwind from the day’s exploration in our rooftop hot tubs and saunas, taking in the expansive views of the North Atlantic and the starry skies. Your activity is complemented by meals made with local, wild, and nutrient-dense ingredients that will support your path to wellness.

Travel solo, with a family member, friend, or partner, and be well.

Offerings of the Wellness Retreat will include:

  • Daily yoga and meditation classes
  • Creative workshops, including candle making, tincture making, and pottery sessions at Fogo Clay Studio
  • A foraging hike and guided tasting experience. Our foraging experts will accompany participants on trails to identify and gather wild ingredients for healing infusions. Back at the Inn, they’ll taste food created from foraged ingredients and learn about their healing properties
  • Sound therapy sessions
  • Special musical performances and themed discussions
  • A winter cabin experience. Participants will meet local people at neighbouring cabins; enjoy a traditional outdoor meal with clean ingredients, and take part in a variety of winter activities – such as skating, snowmobiling, ice fishing and snowshoeing.
