Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists | Kennebunk | Maine | United States

Yoga and Cancer classes are different from regular yoga classes you would typically find at your local studio. They are even different from classes that are called “gentle” or “restorative.” Yoga and Cancer was specifically designed to provide therapeutic benefits to cancer patients and survivors in a relaxed and supportive environment. Specific movements and postures along with mindful breathing and meditation techniques help manage stress and support the immune system. Yoga and Cancer will help you build strength, improve flexibility and range of motion and support the health of the cardiac and lymphatic systems.

Downdogs at Dirigo @ Dirigo Brewing Co | Biddeford | Maine | United States

I’m all for lounging around in pajamas the entire day watching old episodes of Dateline. But for an easy-going Sunday that you can still feel proud to talk about at work on Monday, there’s Downdogs at Dirigo.

This weekly event combines an hour of yoga with a glass of your favorite Dirigo Brewing Co. beer. (To be clear, you do the yoga first, then drink the beer. Not that beer-during-yoga wouldn’t also be lovely, but think of it most as a post-yoga reward.)

(The tasting room opens to the public at noon).
$15 drop-in. Bring your own mat.
