Hiking Yoga @ Meet at base of Mt. Agamenticus at the entrance to the Ring Trail. | York | Maine | United States

Warm up your body in the woods, do yoga on the summit!

Hiking Yoga starts at the base of Mount Agamenticus at the entrance to the Ring Trail at 7am. After a 15-minute hike up the 0.3 mile Blueberry Bluff Trail, yoga will start at 7:30 am at the 692-foot summit.

The hike offers the challenge of climbing on exposed bedrock and the delight of expansive views to the south of Pawtuckaway Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean. The Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region’s 10,000 acres is one of the largest remaining expanses of undeveloped forests in coastal New England. It’s known for its vernal pools, rich biodiversity, unique trail system and many of Maine’s rare plants and animals. Take advantage of this gem created by state, local, and non-profit landowners’ efforts to preserve the water, wildlife and land on Mount Agamenticus.

Fort Gorges, a Civil War-era granite fort surrounded by water, is one of the most fascinating spots in Casco Bay, and it’s only accessible by small boat. The former parade grounds, surrounded by gorgeous granite walls, is a remarkably ideal spot for yoga. The trip will begin with your licensed kayak guide offering a basic kayak lesson and then leading the group on a paddle through Portland harbor and across open water to tiny Hog Island. You’ll land on a beach by the fort’s entrance and explore its elegant granite halls and dark passageways. Make sure you check out the gorgeous view of the Portland skyline from the rooftop!

Then your yoga class will begin in the grassy, calm parade grounds of the fort. You’ll stretch, strengthen and rejuvenate. The yoga class is suitable for all ages & abilities. The kayaking part of the trip is great for all skill levels — even first-time kayakers.

$55 per person. Kayak and paddling gear included.

Graze in Peace Flow @ Graze in Peace
Aug 19 @ 10:30 am
Graze in Peace Flow @ Graze in Peace | Durham | Maine | United States

Attention all animal-loving yogis! Have you heard of Graze in Peace? This wonderful place is a farm animal sanctuary and care farm in Durham Maine. They offer lifelong homes to rescued farm animals. Their mission follows a similar path to yogic principles: founded in 2006 by vegan co-founders Deborah and Carl Schwink, the farm is dedicated to providing a caring home to rescued and unwanted farm animals. They also provide a space for healing, learning and reacquainting with personal power through nature for humans too – people are welcome to walk their grounds and observe the animals, as well as participate in programs designed to re-establish connection between human beings and animals traditionally considered food or livestock.

Hustle and Flow is humbled to offer a power flow class led by Liz Kovarsky at Graze in Peace on August 19th! Liz will guide participants through her loving, supportive power flow out on the farmland with a group of the farm residents – including pigs, sheep, chickens and llamas – as they do what farm animals do… enjoy the land and the abundance of nature.

We humans spend a lot of time indoors, and we all know that it is healthy to get outside to a place where we can’t hear cars whizzing past or sirens blaring. But it’s also important for us to understand where our food comes from. Whether you are a meat eater, vegetarian, vegan or any shade of green in between, understanding the power of these animals is a gift.

For instance, did you know that at just two weeks old, piglets can recognize their mother’s voice, and will run toward her when she calls them? Some mother pigs have been observed singing to their piglets when they’re nursing. Plus, once adults, pigs can run up to 11 miles per hour. That’s a five and a half minute mile – if you’re a runner, you know how fast that is.

All of these animals have knowledge and power to share with us, and a story to tell about our culture’s ideas about farm animals. I’ve never become acquainted with a pig, sheep or llama, but of the chickens I’ve known, some of them are cuddlers and want to be held or petted, while others are little jerks who are moody and unpredictable. Just like us! And just as there is a place for each of us, Graze in Peace makes a place for every farm animal they can accommodate who needs a healthy home.

Hustle and Flow will be donating a portion of the funds from this class to Graze in Peace to help support their operation and the expansion of the farm to help more animals and visitors. Please join us for this very special day of learning in the joy of movement with our four-legged and winged friends.

Graze in Peace Flow is on August 19th at 10:30 am at Graze in Peace in Durham Maine. Bring your own mat, water and anything else you may need for a yoga class. Purchase tickets here and we’ll see you out under the sun!

Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool
Aug 20 @ 6:00 am – 6:45 am
Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool | Biddeford | Maine | United States

Boot camp uses interval, circuit, and aerobic training. It will burn fat, tone muscle, improve posture, build strength and endurance, and build confidence. You work out your arms, legs, and core using exercises that incorporate your whole body. Boot camp can get you into the best shape of your life. As one of my campers stated, “I am stronger, faster, and leaner”
A typical day includes a warm up, stretches, the ‘workout’, cool down, a possible game or challenge, and finishing stretches.

Boot camps varying routines are intense sessions that offer a variety of exercises, and challenge every muscle in your body. By rapidly moving from one exercise to the next, with minimal breaks, you can get a cardiovascular workout while simultaneously toning your muscles. And, you burn lots of calories. Its fun, varied, motivating, produces amazing results, and meets at a fantastic location.

Boot camp’s 45 minutes workouts allow you to do strength training and aerobic training in a single workout, which is very efficient when you have a limited time to work out.

Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Aug 21 @ 4:30 pm
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.
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.

She aspires to lead you through compassionate, judgment free, lighthearted classes linking breath and movement as she embarks on the journey of teaching. Robert A.
