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

Sundays are for chilling out. Down time. Going easy.

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.)

Sundays 10:30 a.m.at Dirigo Brewing Co., 28 Pearl St, Biddeford
(The tasting room opens to the public at noon).
$15 drop-in. Bring your own mat.

Full Moon Hike @ Emmons Preserve
Jan 31 @ 8:00 pm
Full Moon Hike @ Emmons Preserve | Kennebunkport | Maine | United States

Enjoy the magic of winter with a full moon hike at the Emmons Preserve! KCT Board Member, Russ Grady, will lead the group on a moderate 3 mile hike on the Trust’s trails. There will be several opportunities to stop along the way and enjoy the glow of the moon. Weather will dictate gear (snow shoes, poles, winter clothes, etc…). While we hope to use the moon light, bringing a flash light or headlamp is always a good idea. Feel free to bring your beverage of choice to enjoy in the headquarters after the hike. Meet at our headquarters located at 57 Gravelly Brook Road in Kennebunkport at 8pm. Free, all welcome!

Thanks to C.A. Smith Photography for his full moon photo taken in the Smith Preserve.

We can’t wait to see you for our 7th annual, only a few moons away.
