At My Five Acres, we focus on the intersection between adventure, travel, and yoga. We believe in taking mindful journeys, moving respectfully through our world, and travelling as sustainably as we can.
We’re here to help as you embark on your next mindful journey.

The name My Five Acres is a reminder to tread lightly, wherever you go.
“Jane and Stephen are living the adventurous life we all dream about! They inspire me to take more chances and teach me how.”
