The Montauk Beach House is situated in the heart of Downtown Montauk, and is a block from the Atlantic Ocean surf beaches and a short stroll to Montauk’s shops, restaurants, bars and cafés.

We are a boutique hotel with an active daytime environment and a comfortable, warm, chill-out-by-the-fire-with-friends vibe at night. A social gathering space to eat, drink, be relaxed, and make memories. The summer will find a laid-back East Coast vibe with great entertainment, special events, and unique offerings to fill our summer calendar with one common theme: “to show our guests a different path; a unique alternative to summers in Montauk.”

Damn Good Yoga: Montauk - Retreat Itinerary

Friday, May 3rd

3:00 pm: WELCOME

You just got to Montauk. You probably already want rosé. That will come later. Check in to The Montauk Beach House and get settled in your new chic weekend digs. Expect a signature Damn Good Yoga swag bag on your bed with a whole slew of goodies to make your weekend extra EXTRA.

4:15-6:15 pm: BFire and Yoga Nidra Meditation at BYoga

Walk over to BYoga to meet the crew. We will have a Welcome Circle before a BFire vinyasa class, led by Anna and Sarrah, to kick things off. Expect to be asked what your favorite thing is to do in the water and expect to sweat. Then surrender to a sweet Yoga Nidra and meditation that will be sure to strip away any city stress still on you!

7:00 pm: Dinner at Navy Beach

Meet us at Navy Beach for our first family dinner together by the water. Navy Beach is always fun and festive, with delicious food to boot! Think hamachi ceviche and grilled artichokes with the sea breeze in your hair. After dinner, there may be some dancing on the beach if we have any say in the matter!
Saturday, May 4th

7:45-9:15 am: BFire Inversion Workshop at BYoga

After grabbing a coffee at Left Hand next door, put that caffeine buzz to good use with a morning practice sure to flip your world upside down. Sarrah will lead you through a practice with a focus on getting into handstand, forearm stand, and headstand. No worries if you have an injury, there will be beautiful modifications for all bodies!

9:15 am – 12:00 pm Break(your)Fast and Shop Main Street

Walk around town with Lauren and catch that sweet Montauk vibe. Grab a Tortarican at Naturally Good or an açaí bowl at Happy Bowls. Stop by Cynthia Rowley for discounts and refreshments – really, they’ll be expecting you! Cruise to the Montauk Lighthouse and watch the waves. Visit Stu at Air and Speed and dream shop your next board.

12:30-2:00 pm: Lunch on the beach by Salt Box

We will head to the infamous Ditch Plains for a beach picnic. Think lobster rolls and Montauk Brew Co. Watermelon sessions. Catch some surfers doing their thing and maybe even join in. If Mother Nature has other plans, we will eat inside the Salt Box, a charming Main Street staple.

2:00-3:00 pm: Free Time

Walk down the beach to Poles and sit under the rocks staring out into the sea. Or head in the opposite direction to the Trailer Park for a tour of America’s most expensive trailers! (This activity not sanctioned by BYoga). Head down to the docks for a taste of the true fisherman culture or simply stay put and read that book you keep meaning to read.

4:00-5:00pm: Montauk Salt Cave - Gong Sound Meditation

When is the last time you got to hang out in a salt cave? We will head to Montauk Salt Cave, where we will meditate to the sounds of the gong while improving our respiratory health and overall well-being! Salt therapy clears all pollens, viruses, pollutants and toxins in our lungs and nasal passageways. The salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial. Meditation is key to a quiet mind and a happy body. This special session will be led by a special guest teacher designed exclusively for BYoga to get your mind and body right!

5:30-7:30pm: Montauk Beach House Derby Party

We want to make all of your hat dreams come true! Throw in a mint julep and some friendly betting on what horse has your favorite name and get to the MONTAUK BEACH HOUSE – KENTUCKY DERBY PARTY! And who knows? After all of that meditation, you may be able to move the horses with your mind. 😉

8:00pm: Dinner at Swallow East*

After the winner of the Derby has been crowned, let’s have a beautiful meal together at Swallow East. There may be a live band playing outside and definitely some rosé because…Montauk.
Sunday, May 6th

7:45-9:15am - BFire with Anna

After a fun filled Saturday, you will be glad to wake up early and have your core fired up by the one and only Anna. Known as the quiet killer, Anna will ignite your fire, and bring you that much closer to empowering yourself and trusting in your intuition.

9:30-10:30- Breakfast at Joni’s*

Walk about 100 feet from our front door to go say hello to Joni! Her breakfast wraps are a staple of the BYoga family and famous around these parts. Don’t forget to try the banana bread.

11:00 am- CHECK OUT. It's so hard to say goodbye... so we will have optional activities for you! Stay tuned...

*food and beverages at Navy Beach, Swallow East, and Joni’s not included in rate

Your Teacher: Anna Chung

IN SEARCH OF BALANCE WHILE WORKING ON WALL STREET AND TRAINING FOR HER BLACK BELT IN TAE KWON-DO, ANNA HADDAD FOUND HER ESCAPE IN YOGA.

The practice gave her the courage to leave her life as a hedge fund executive and follow her dreams of becoming a yoga instructor and entrepreneur. Driven by her purposeful calling of making yoga fun and accessible, Anna discovered a passion for building brands rooted in community, creativity, and connectivity. With that in mind, in 2017 she cofounded her second startup, BYoga, a yoga studio in Montauk, NY, that helps others tap into yoga’s powerful and transformative influence. There, in addition to sharing her love of yoga as a teacher, she also curates fun music playlists to bring humor, joy, and good healing vibrations to each and every class. In the spring of 2018 the brand expanded with two Pop Up locations in East Hampton and NYC.
In what little spare time she has, she also teaches at Yoga Vida, Equinox Sports Club, and Facebook as well as one-on-one private and group sessions and corporate networking events. She has completed her trainings at Pure Yoga, Woom Center, and Yoga Vida. Deeply passionate about connecting with students, teachers, and small business owners, she is focused on creating positive and memorable experiences through yoga and stoking the fire that lives inside all of us to uncover our grit, be resilient, take risks, and encourage one another to live our dreams.

Your Teacher: Sarrah Strimel

SARRAH LOVES YOGA. A LOT.LIKE A LOT A LOT.

To balance the repetitive damage of dancing on Broadway eight shows a week, yoga was suggested by her physical therapist. Over 12 years ago, the love affair began upon walking into a power flow class.

She quickly noticed that her body started to change, her dancing improved, and she was rarely at the physical therapy office. Most importantly, her mind started to quiet, and being a professional performer became much more manageable. The drama started to quiet and fade, and the joy shined through. Yoga truly became the thing that kept her going in a business made for short-lived careers. Miraculously, throughout her career of six Broadway shows, she has never sustained a major injury or even a pulled muscle.

When Modo Yoga NYC opened five years ago, she joined the community as a student. Struck by the balance of incredible teachers, environmental conservation, and community, she made the decision to embark upon their teacher training. A one-month window opened up in 2013, amidst creating the Broadway show, “Big Fish”, and it just happened to be the Moksha/Modo training month. It was divine timing and a sign that this was her path. She completed both the 500-hour and 100-hour flow trainings with Moksha International and has been a senior teacher at Modo Yoga NYC and Williamsburg for four years. She is also the lead teacher at Sweat Yoga NYC and a guide at Woom Center. She is certified to teach vinyasa, hatha, yin, and restorative.
