Inversion Workshop @ The Rooted Collective
Aug 20 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Inversion Workshop @ The Rooted Collective | Portland | Maine | United States

Inversions: Foundations + Finesse

WARNING: Euphoria alert! That’s just one benefit of turning your body upside down! Have you been interested to try inversions but haven’t yet had the opportunity in class? Join Danielle + learn how to use the bandhas (yogic body “locks”) to stabilize the body, find proper alignment to avoid injury, and know the benefits to spending some time with your head below your heart. Danielle has been teaching safe, alignment based yoga for the past 11 years and has taught countless students how to safely invert. This workshop is for all levels, but students will take away more if they have some prior yoga experience. Students with neck and shoulder injury should speak with the instructor beforehand.

Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga @ Portland Paddle
Aug 22 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 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.

This year, most classes will be lead by the amazing Gretchen Campos of Greener Postures Yoga! Hoping to get some other teachers from last summer back as well. All classes are donation, all level classes and end with goat snuggles and cheese tasting. Proceeds are split between instructor and farm. And… since the self serve fridge is open Fri-Sun, people who attend yoga get early dibs on all the weekends treats! Hope to see you all back again this summer and to meet many new folks in the field as well. Limited parking so try to carpool and pull all the way in to park behind the barn. Bring your mat and some water and get ready to enjoy a sweet outdoor class!
