Intro to Stand-Up Paddleboarding @ Portland Paddle | Portland | Maine | United States

Rates include use of a SUP and all necessary gear, but you are also welcome to bring your own board.

Active Wellness Retreat @ Acadia National Park

Active Wellness Retreat @  Acadia National Park | Maine | United States

Physical fitness, yoga and music in a secluded setting on the rocky coast of Maine…can it get much better than that? Venture Outside is pleased to offer this unique and special holistic wellness retreat experience at the perfect location for recharging your body, mind, and spirit.

The Schoodic Peninsula is the “quiet” corner of Acadia National Park, known for its pounding surf, incredible sunsets, and soft spruce-fir cloaked landscape. With miles of hiking and mountain bike trails, a rugged shoreline of both quiet coves and rugged headlands, and miles of quiet paved park road, the Schoodic peninsula in Acadia N.P. provides the perfect setting for this active retreat. In partnership with Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, this retreat is held entirely within the park, and based from the Institute’s beautiful campus.

We invite you to reconnect to the power of your body by focusing on your physical fitness and well-being. We’ll choose from two activities and bike, hike, and paddle over this two day weekend retreat. We balance physical activity with just the right amount of reflection during and between outdoor excursions. In addition to the outdoor nature-based activities, you’ll practice yoga indoors and out to balance body and spirit, and be treated to restorative and entertaining music performances and chanting.

Explore and immerse yourself in the uninterrupted landscape of green forest, blue ocean, bold shoreline, and big sky. Find healing and inspiration by connecting with nature through simple meditations and interpretive nature “stops.”

Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga @ Portland Paddle
Jun 22 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Tuesdays, 6:30 PM:  Sarah Graham, Wild Craft Yoga
Thursdays, 5:30 PM: Ashley Flowers, Ashley Flowers Yoga

If you enjoy yoga and you like being on the water, you’ll probably have a blast trying out SUP Yoga at the East End Beach this summer. You don’t need to be an expert yogi or an expert paddler. All experience levels are welcome. If it’s your first time there’s a decent chance you’ll get wet, so make sure you dress appropriately! We’ll provide anchors for each SUP so that the entire group can circle around the instructor without floating away.

There are limited spots available for each class, so we strongly recommend signing up ahead of time by clicking on the blue button below or calling 207-370-9730. If we cancel a class due to poor weather conditions you will be given a choice between rescheduling or receiving a full refund. However, we usually go out as long as there’s no steady rain or strong winds. The sea conditions near the beach are different every session, and that’s part of the fun of doing yoga while floating.

PRICE PER CLASS: $28 per student or $18 if you have your own SUP.

FIVE-CLASS PASS: Buy five classes at once for $100 (or $75 if you use your own SUP) You will select the date of your first class when purchasing, and then you can choose the four other dates at any time using a code that will be emailed to you. All unused class credits will expire at the end of the 2017.

Bond Brook Tread Fest @ Bond Brook Recreation Area
Jun 24 – Jun 25 all-day

Welcome the the all new Bond Brook Tread Fest!!! The event has a lot going on this year and as you can we’ve shaken things up quite a bit!! There is something for everyone. We are really excited to bring this Stage Race to the region. As an athlete you can go “all in” or pick and choose the events that appeal to you. We hope we have created something for everyone and that a ton of the riding community come out to support the growth of the trails in the region. THIS EVENT IS A FUNDRAISER TO BUILD MORE AND BETTER TRAILS IN THE REGION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

FUN RACE/KIDS – 1 Lap: While all the stage racers are taking a break for lunch, the FUN RACE will take to the course at 3:30 pm. This is a kinder, gentler version of the 6 hour course and is meant to encourage participation from newer riders, those interested in a relaxed pace way to support the event, and kids.

Stage 1:This is a 6 hour endurance event. Ride as many laps as you can in 6 hours. Simple, straight foward, masochistic fun! Race it solo, or get a team together. Take it serious, or not at all, it’s completely up to you and a great way to spend the day riding your bike.

AFTER STAGE 1 AND THE FUN RACE WE WILL HAVE A BAND, TASTY FOOD, AND A BEER TENT. PLAN TO CAMP OUT AND ENJOY THE AFTERNOON FESTIVITIES.

Stage 2:This is a Mountain Bike time trial. The course will be 5-6 miles long and will be a different variation from any of the other stages. You will be racing against the clock and at the end of the day there are no categories, no brackets, and no extra podiums. There will be 3 men and 3 women on the podium. If you are competing in the entire event your time will be added to your total. The stage will kick off at 9 am with riders leaving at 30 second intervals. We will start riders based upon previous results and/or your entry category in other stages. Be ready to ride at 9 with the understanding that you may have to wait your turn to start.

Stage 3: For the first time ever we are bringing an Enduro style event to Bond Brook. There will be 5 timed segments. All segments will be descents. Each segment will be timed and the cumulative time for each segment will determine the winners. We will recognize the fastest times for each segment during the awards. Between segments you can take your time getting to the next segment; catch your breath, have a drink, eat some food as there is no real rush. The “transition” as it’s known in big Enduro races will be a time to make sure you are rested and ready to start the next section(Within reason of course, we don’t want people stopping for a picnic between segments).

So fantastic the first time, we’re going to do it again!

Join Maine Yoga Adventures on an amazing overnight adventure in stunning Penobscot, Maine!

With the beach just steps away from a glorious seaside home with amazing views, we’ll enjoy yoga & nature explorations, healthy food & wine, stargazing, an outdoor fire, and more…

And, adventurers will absolutely love the vegetarian evening meal provided by popular local caterer Markel’s Bakehouse from Castine.
