The small town of Yarmouth Port can also only be described as charming and unique, seeped in rich history and quintessential New England character. Yarmouth Port is in the northern part of Yarmouth, bordered by the Cape Cod Bay and the towns of Dennis and Barnstable. Yarmouth Port was home to the original Christmas Tree Shops until its closing in 2007.
Yarmouth Port is also known for its coastal allure. Visitors can enjoy the warm waters and wildlife of Cape Cod Bay, and the soft sand and shallow pools of Chapin Beach. Take a stroll down Gray's Beach Boardwalk during golden hour to take in the breathtaking sunset and observe aquatic creatures. Another landmark not to be missed in Yarmouth Port is The Captain's Mile, a stretch of road lined with over 50 impressive homes dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Homes with a schooner plaque indicate that the building was once owned by a sea captain.
Yoga of Yarmouth Port certainly reflects the history of the town it resides in. Originally the space operated as a bed and breakfast in the 18th century, and the original wood floors and windows are still intact. The studio even sits right above a quaint antique store, a popular pastime in this area. Yoga of Yarmouth Port doesn't shy away from the nautical roots of the area, either. The yogis of this studio are known to jump on a lobster boat excursion together every so often.
