"Thanksgiving Yoga"

I loved the yoga! Donna made it fun and tailored it to our individual needs and abilities. The house was really comfortable and my bed was divine! It was great to be able to use the sauna, and lounge around on the window seat in the front room. The food was absolutely amazing! Healthy and delicious!

Ive always been interested in yoga, especially Kundalini yoga. However, I hadnt really thought about taking a teacher training until I visited Sewall House last year. Sewall House is a serene place, perfect to get immersed in training. I enjoyed my three week intensive training and learned a lot from Donna. She covered so many topics that really helped me understand the origins of yoga and that its so much more than just about asanas.Donna not only brings theory to the training, she also speaks from experience from her many years as a teacher and small business owner, which is why I enjoyed the training so much. After all, theory only gets you so far and you want to have a teacher that can also address how to deal with difficult situations, create space and much more. I havent taught yet but the training has advanced my own yoga practice because I have so much more background on why we do the poses And meditations we do.I do plan to teach one day but in the meantime, I take different classes to continue learning.

The Yoga was fantastic. Donna was wonderful at keeping Larry motivated and not afraid to experience something (yoga) that was totally new to him. At the same time I never felt like I was doing a beginner class. If there is such a thing as magic Sewall House performs it in an extraordinary way. Leaving here relaxed and filled with happiness.

I'm now back to Finland & back to work, and I remember the Sewall House with great warmth. I really enjoyed my stay there - it was my most relaxing holiday ever! I loved just about everything: the food, the yoga, the beautiful house etc. Your only fault is that you are so far away! I would love to come back some day. I'm trying to do some Kundalini yoga on my own now, but I think it's nicer to do it with the group and with the great teacher - thanks Donna! I was happy to find out that some Kundalini classes are available in Helsinki.Unfortunately they are on summer break in July, so I'll just have to practice on my own for a while. Please say hello and give my thanks to Inga. She's such a great person, you are so lucky to have her there with you. Thank you for making my yoga travel so wonderful! I hope I will see you again. All the best!

My friend and I searched for a yoga retreat and Sewall House was a perfect fit. The reasons we chose Sewall House was because they provide 3 meals, offer 2 yoga classes per day, and a daily meditation. The meals are healthy and delicious! Nadja is a talented chef. My friend and I are gluten-free and it wasn't a problem at all. We had full delicious meals that you felt good eating. As a mother it was a real treat to not have to think about food and know that every meal is well-thought out and delicious. And wait until you have dessert!

The yoga...amazing. Donna is an incredibly talented instructor and effectively teaches a variety of levels in one class. Her studio is welcoming and it is mindfully designed. I enjoyed having the option of attending 2 yoga classes. Other retreats only offered 1 daily class but my friend and I really wanted more than that, and Sewall House provided that. We also enjoyed the morning meditation, it was a great way to start each day.

The house itself is clean, welcoming, and has an air of true hospitality. My room was very spacious, clean, had plenty of light, and most importantly the bed was incredibly comfortable. I checked out all the rooms and they are all spacious. Bathrooms are clean and there's plenty to share.

The location is ideal for a retreat. There is plenty to do (hiking, kayaking, biking, blueberry picking, swimming) if you so choose. There is also a wonderful porch on which many books can be read, conversations had, tea/coffee sipped, etc.

Donna and Nadja were incredibly welcoming and warm. The best part of the retreat is that I really felt pampered and left feeling as if I have known Donna and Nadja for longer than the 6 days that I stayed in their lovely lovely home. I would highly recommend Sewall House not only to yogis but to anyone that wants to get away, relax, and simply enjoy life.
