Summer Solstice by the Ocean - Outdoor Yoga, Live Music and Meditation

The first weekend of summer is here! Please join us for a magical morning of mindful celebration at one of MA' most beautiful spots. If you haven't been to Halibut Point State Park in Rockport before, you are in for such a treat. Imagine sweeping ocean views, dramatic rocky coast, sun-dappled meadows with the sound of the waves echoing through the trees. Easy trails to explore around the a stunning quarry or down to the water's edge. Abundant places to sit and just take it in. Think of a place where nature surrounds you so completely that you are reminded that you are nature too. It is well worth the trip if you are coming from a distance! We will begin our morning at 8with a one-hour yoga class with live music at a specially selected spot within the Park (think secret garden vibes ;)). Yogaway Retreats founder Checka Antifonario will guide you through an all-levels class as singer-songwriter Kimberly Fife of Little Tribe Yoga uplifts us through vocals and guitar. We will then carry the post-yoga glow with us down to the ocean (a short walk) for a meditation on the giant coastal rocks.  There are ample flat and smooth places to sit, which makes this an idyllic spot to reflect, dwell in gratitude for the gifts of summer, and set our intentions for the season ahead. This seaside meditation spot is in fact the nugget of magic that prompted this whole special event, and we cannot wait to share it with you! This event is limited to 30 people. We plan to complete the meditation by about 9:45 am, after which you may like to stay for further exploration of the Park or head into charming downtown Rockport for some breakfast and some of the coolest shops around! Important Notes: Please arrive by 7:45 am so we can begin class promptly at 8:00. Checka will be at the parking lot to guide you to our class location. The parking lot is large and there should be plenty of space at this time of day, but carpooling is always encouraged when possible. Parking fees: 1) free for Trustees of the Reservations Members2) $5 for cars with MA plates3) $10 for cars with NH plates What to bring: Please bring your own yoga mat as well as well as sturdy shoes for our walk down to the ocean. It is not a steep walk but we will pass over rocks and perhaps some muddy spots depending upon recent weather. It is always a little with the ocean breeze, so please make sure you have layers to stay comfortable.
