Beginners Yoga w/ Marcia @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

We begin with gentle movements to warm the body. This part of the practice includes gliding and circular motions to release tension from areas of congestion and restriction in the body. You are introduced to slower movements of the body in preparation for more movement in the form of Vinyasa. We transition into standing postures to begin to cultivate stability and strength. Props are utilized in the practice as support. The combination of these gentle movements and postures leads to the cultivation of a strong, flexible body.

A little about Jennifer…

Jennifer’s yoga journey began over a decade ago when she took her first power Vinyasa class in 2007. She was recovering from a running injury and seeking an alternative way to manage stress and remain active. She had no idea that yoga would become so much more to her over the years than a regular workout routine. Class after class, Jennifer began to appreciate how yoga has the ability to create strength, flexibility and transformation of our mind, body and soul. It aligns us with gratitude for the present moment and inspires us to lead healthier more purposeful lives. Over the past 10 years, she has practiced many styles of yoga in various studios throughout the country. Jennifer completed her 200hr teacher certification with Leslee Clark of Well Heart Yoga School in Falmouth Maine in 2015 and Yoga Assistant Training with Sue Jones and Ray Mucci of Prana Power Yoga in Cambridge Massachusetts in 2011 and 2017. A Doctor of Physical Therapy practicing locally in Portland, Jennifer is a specialist in pelvic floor, oncology and perinatal rehabilitation. She utilizes her passion for yoga in a holistic approach to healing injury. Her teaching is authentic and playful drawing from her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to create a safe and intentional practice for her students. Jennifer believes yoga is truly a gift and feels incredibly grateful to share it with this community.

Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 17 @ 8:30 am
Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

The room is heated up to 80 degrees. During summer months, the heat is not on. We work a nature’s heat. This class is great for a good sweat!

Each class is unique and each class targets a peak pose through intelligent sequencing. The class is led with intention as you are properly prepared for the apex of the practice. We work with foundational and primary poses in each practice.

The practice session allows the body to open slowly, not to overload the nervous system, and in exchange, tension, stress, and congestion that has been stored in the muscles and joints now has the opportunity to release. We also work to create strength in the body as we begin to embrace longer holds and include movement. In leaving a class one should have a feeling of stability, strength and a connection to the body.

This class is a dynamic practice. No yoga experience is necessary, as modifications are offered.

Please hydrate properly before the class.

The Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k ( Run/Walk) @ Bug Light Park | South Portland | Maine | United States

What’s more fun than a holiday race?? Racing the Second Annual Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k at Bug Light, on Thanksgiving morning !!! This going to be a fun family event !!! This is the second annual run of the Turkey Trot to honor Nathan Savage. Nathan was an avid runner, biker, triathlete and family man. He lost his life to a fatal heart attack on July 2, 2016. This was just three weeks before he was set to compete in his first full Ironman event, and just months prior to his 40th birthday. This year’s event will fall on November 22rd.

The proceeds will stay local and be given to the Nathan Savage Memorial Fund, a fund created by the Savage Family with the South Portland Community Center that gives financial assistance to any child wanting to participate in one of their youth development programs. One of Nathan’s dreams was to help kids get off the couch and get out there and be active and healthy and we thought this was the perfect way to honor his dream. So, prepare to have that extra helping at dinner, or that second ( or third) piece of pie and join us!!! Run, walk, bring your friends, your family and maybe even your well behaved dog ( on leash, of course). Start your Thanksgiving day off and support an amazing family and a great cause.

T-shirts to all those donating $20 or more before 11/15/2018.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 22 @ 4:30 pm – 5:45 pm
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

The room is heated up to 80 degrees.

Each class is unique and targets a peak pose. The class is led with intention and intelligent sequencing to prepare the body properly for apex of the practice. We work foundational and primary poses in each session. And the root of the teachings is to develop the capacity for self-inquiry. The body becomes the vehicle. The practice session allows the body to open slowly not to overload the nervous system, and in exchange tension, stress and congestion that has been stored in the muscles and joints now has the opportunity to release. Thus creating ease. As we create strength in the body we also begin to embrace stillness and longer holds. In leaving a class one should have a feeling of stability, strength and a connection to the body.

This class is a dynamic practice. Please hydrate properly before the class.

About your instructor: The landscape of Amy Figoli’s teaching is to hold the intention for people to find a way in, to meet the totality of oneself through asana practice, as well as working with the ability to begin to listen to what is arising. Learning to not override the currently pushing language of culture and of our bodies. To hold the space for silence, and listen inquisitively to how the body speaks.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 29 @ 4:30 pm – 5:45 pm
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

The room is heated up to 80 degrees.

Each class is unique and targets a peak pose. The class is led with intention and intelligent sequencing to prepare the body properly for apex of the practice. We work foundational and primary poses in each session. And the root of the teachings is to develop the capacity for self-inquiry. The body becomes the vehicle. The practice session allows the body to open slowly not to overload the nervous system, and in exchange tension, stress and congestion that has been stored in the muscles and joints now has the opportunity to release. Thus creating ease. As we create strength in the body we also begin to embrace stillness and longer holds. In leaving a class one should have a feeling of stability, strength and a connection to the body.

This class is a dynamic practice. Please hydrate properly before the class.

About your instructor: The landscape of Amy Figoli’s teaching is to hold the intention for people to find a way in, to meet the totality of oneself through asana practice, as well as working with the ability to begin to listen to what is arising. Learning to not override the currently pushing language of culture and of our bodies. To hold the space for silence, and listen inquisitively to how the body speaks.

This class setting is created to be of support to the nervous system. A reset to the system and the opportunity for deep rest are good for the soul, the body and the mind. We come in to a variety of restorative postures to aid in the dropping of an anxious mind. And to support a stressed physical and emotional body. This class goes well in tandem with any of the our other scheduled classes.

If you have a current or old injury you may also attend this class and you will be supported. Please inform Amy accordingly.

Beginners Yoga w/ Marcia @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 30 @ 8:30 am
Beginners Yoga w/ Marcia @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

We begin with gentle movements to warm the body. This part of the practice includes gliding and circular motions to release tension from areas of congestion and restriction in the body. You are introduced to slower movements of the body in preparation for more movement in the form of Vinyasa. We transition into standing postures to begin to cultivate stability and strength. Props are utilized in the practice as support. The combination of these gentle movements and postures leads to the cultivation of a strong, flexible body.
