In fall 2012 we discovered the enchanted Isle of Madeira, 400 miles off the coast of Morocco and it is time for us to return and share another extraordinary week of yoga, hiking, fabulous locally grown, caught and prepared cuisine, and magical shared experiences that will last a lifetime. Madeira
North Fork Yoga Shala Retreats
Here at North Fork Yoga Shala, in Greenport, we are really proud of our expanding offering of several retreats both near and far as well as the variety of workshops and trainings that we hold both with our own instructors and talented guest instructors and facilitators.
Our retreats, currently led pre-dominantly by Claire Copersino, our Founder and Director, span the globe, and range from a few wonderful days within driving or public transport distance to further afield in Mexico, Costa Rica, various locations in Europe, northern Africa and several in the planning stage that will be further afield. It is often the case that once someone has joined one retreat, they catch the bug, so to speak, and attend another .. and another .. and another. Don’t say you weren’t warned J
It is truly magical to watch new connections form on our retreats, new yoga-family bonds be created and very much a family vibe set in within the first 24 hours amongst our small, intimate groups wherever we may be calling home on our retreats.

As a result the community and family feel of the studio just continues to deepen and expand and sweeps everyone who walks through our doors up into the glow.
Claire Copersino Yoga Retreats, trainings, and workshops are curated based upon suggestions from you as well as initiatives from our team of instructors and we always welcome your thoughts, ideas and feedback.

Bright and breezy Essaouira, on Morocco’s Atlantic coast, is an enchanting, laid-back alternative to the frenetic melting-pot of Marrakesh. The town’s name means “little picture” in Arabic, and it’s a painter’s dream location, with a vibrant blue-and-white “medina” (inner walled city), enclosed by fairy-tale, sand-coloured ramparts and imposing stone gates (“Babs”).
We are completely thrilled to be announcing our very first MULTI-DESTINATION YOGA ADVENTURE!!! Claire's first retreat to Morocco in 2019 led her to explore this incredible country from top to bottom, east to west and out of these travels we have created an extraordinary opportunity to blend a bespoke, customized
