Full Moon Yoga Adventure

  • Hirundo Wildlife Refuge 1107 West Old Town Road Old Town, ME, 04468 United States (map)

Join MYA on a fab fall excursion to Hirundo Wildlife Refuge! Adventurers will enjoying hiking, yoga, tasty vegetarian soup, a moon on the rise and more...

We'll begin with a hike to take in all of the wondrous nature that Hirundo has to offer. Only 10 miles from the University of Maine, Orono, the refuge is a 2,400 acre nature preserve, spanning Pushaw and Dead Streams, Lac d’Or (lake), vast wetlands, including a gently raised bog, Silver Maple Floodplain Forest, mixed hardwood and evergreen forests. We should be nicely into fall foliage season and will breathe in a vast variety of hues.


Along the hike we'll be practicing yoga - beginners welcome! No worries, the hike will be gentle and the yoga will follow suit. At times we will be surrounded by trees, perhaps we’ll get to know them a bit better using them as our balance partners :)


Afterwards adventurers will gather up inside the Hirundo shelter with vegetarian soup and some other yummy treats. We'll definitely be taking it outside again with a fire and toasting vegan marshmallows (yes, they're just as good as the gelatin variety, in fact, they're better!).

As the light begins to fade, the oh-so-close to full moon will be rising. It's the Hunter's Moon in October with a slightly orange color and a larger size compared to other month's full moons. Adventurers will surely notice the quieter sounds emerging in the dark as daytime's almost constant murmur is dimmed.


Meditate, relax and fill yourself with wonder and joy!

Cost: $45. Please register via Hirundo Wildlife Refuge HERE! Thank you!
