Women's Autumn Retreat with Sarah and Jen @ Mountain home at Sunday River | Newry | Maine | United States

Hit the reset button and create some time and space for yourself in this beautiful mountain retreat home.

Weekend includes fresh, healthy meals prepared daily by Jen, daily yoga and meditation practices including Flow Class, Workshop style classes, and SPA Yoga® and yoga nidra. We will leave space in the day for your personal exploration of nature, journalling, and goal-setting, as well as time to hang in the hot tub under the stars.

$350 for the weekend and a shared occupancy room. Includes dinner Friday night, brunch and dinner Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. Retreat is limited to 10 participants. Your $100 deposit secures your spot. Deposits are non-refundable.

About Jen: Jen found her passion for yoga through the back door. With a background in tae kwon do and meditation, she began her journey five years ago with Hatha yoga and expanded her way into power vinyasa. She received her 200 hour Live Love Teach certification in winter 2014. In addition, she has trained with Betty Riaz for her SPA certification. In her practice, she creates a restorative yet strong and ever evolving flow. She is continuously learning as a teacher and on her mat as a student. She also has a passion for locally sourced foods from her lengthy career with Whole Foods Market. Beyond teaching, she has numerous experiences providing home cooked meals for Stil Studio’s annual yoga retreats for up to twenty-five guests. When she’s not on her mat you can find her in the kitchen whipping up delicious goods or outside traveling this beautiful world with her significant other and dog, Autumn.

About Sarah: When Sarah took her first yoga class in 2009, she was inspired by the freedom and dance-like quality she was able to find on the mat; in 2012 she was hit by a car while crossing the street, and then the real practice began. Her asana practice put on hold, her focus shifted to mindfulness, meditation, and the philosophical teachings of the yoga practice.After completing Stil Studio’s 200 hour Fluid Yoga Training in 2013, Sarah began teaching a mindful, fun, spirited flow that fuses philosophy, asana, and music. She considers herself a yoga DJ as much as she does a yoga teacher, and you can count on fun, inspiring music as you flow through class. Sarah’s classes leave the body feeling open, and encourage mindfulness both on and off the mat through breath and body awareness. Sarah completed her 500 hour Fluid Yoga teacher training at Stil Studio with Kevan Gale and Betty Riaz in Spring 2015. She is certified in Thai Yoga Massage Level 1, Yin Yoga and Meditation, as well as in SPA Yoga® teaching with Betty Riaz.

Tweed Ride @ Meet in Monument Square
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm
Tweed Ride @ Meet in Monument Square | Portland | Maine | United States

Dress up in your best old-timey attire and climb on your bike for a leisurely ride through downtown Portland, the Back Cove and Deering Oaks Park! The ride is a slow pace (because bystanders are going to want to see this!) and there aren’t a lot of hills either.
This year the Tweed Ride is again partnering with the Gaslight League, an organization of supporters of Portland’s Victoria Mansion, in putting on this year’s Tweed Ride. After the usual ride through downtown Portland and pictures in Deering Oaks Park, we will proceed to the Victoria Mansion on Danforth Street, where riders will be greeted with a reception of hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks and snacks and free tours of the Mansion. Please join us!

Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists
Oct 24 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists | Kennebunk | Maine | United States

Yoga and Cancer classes are different from regular yoga classes you would typically find at your local studio. They are even different from classes that are called “gentle” or “restorative.” Yoga and Cancer was specifically designed to provide therapeutic benefits to cancer patients and survivors in a relaxed and supportive environment. Specific movements and postures along with mindful breathing and meditation techniques help manage stress and support the immune system. Yoga and Cancer will help you build strength, improve flexibility and range of motion and support the health of the cardiac and lymphatic systems.

You better WORK(shop) @ Cloudport CoWorking MultiSpace

You better WORK(shop) @ Cloudport CoWorking MultiSpace | Portland | Maine | United States

If you’ve ever said the phrase “I’m not strong enough.”, then this is the event for you.

The women of the Superhero Lady Armwrestlers of Portland* invite you to attend a unique workshop that offers a peek into the world of theatrical ladies armwrestling. Our instructors (state champions!) will show you techniques to give you a foundation to arm wrestle safely and powerfully, using your body to your advantage and making you a force to be reckoned! These techniques will be combined with an interactive character development portion to help you unlock the persona in you that is begging to be let out. Each attendent will receive an honorary wrestler name.

Whether you’ve been interested in joining the ranks of SLAP, you’re looking for a way to feel more powerful, or you just want a fun skill to pull out at parties…we want to help spread the joy of this sport and organization.

This event will be 100% free, so RSVP via Eventbrite as soon as possible to make sure you get a space!

*The Superhero Lady Armwrestlers of Portland (SLAP) are the local chapter of a national collective of women who armwrestle in character for the purpose of raising money for charity. We give stage and space for women to demonstrate strengths from all sources, while giving back to our community.
