Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists
Feb 27 @ 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.

Shine Dance Fitness @ SHINE DANCE FITNESS - ALL CLASSES @ AQUARIUS BALLROOM DANCE
Feb 27 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Shine Dance Fitness @ SHINE DANCE FITNESS - ALL CLASSES @ AQUARIUS BALLROOM DANCE | Portland | Maine | United States

1st class is FREE!!! Shine Dance fitness incorporates Jazz, Hip Hop, and Ballet all while dancing to today’s hits (think 97.9). My two favorite things about SHiNE: It’s FUN, and it’s YOURS! Every routine is easily modifiable to ANY fitness level. If you need low impact and small range of motion, SHiNE can be that. If you need killer cardio and deep booty squats, SHiNE can be that! If you need a great workout that feels like a party, SHiNE is definitely that! What are you waiting for??

Join me at Aquarius Ballroom dance it Portland every Tuesday night at 6pm and Saturdays at 10am. Introduce a friend to SHINE & you get another free class. Promotion is 50% off classes 5 classes for $25 & 10 classes for $45. Drop in anytime and follow our Facebook page for special events.

Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center | Jefferson | Maine | United States

Explore the wonders of nature under the light of the full moon at Hidden Valley Nature Center. Let your eyes adjust to the ambient light, enjoy the shadows and the sounds of coyotes, owls, and the trees blowing in the wind. We’ll end the evening with a hot drink and camaraderie at one of the heated cabins. Meet at the gate promptly for a 2.5 mile trek to the pond for the full moon rising. Please no dogs. If you are borrowing our snowshoes, please make arrangements and arrive early for a fitting.

Full Moon Hike @ Emmons Preserve
Mar 1 @ 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.

7th Annual Liberal Cup Biathlon @ Hidden Valley Nature Center | Jefferson | Maine | United States

On Sunday, March 4, 2018, Midcoast Conservancy will host the seventh annual Liberal Cup Biathlon at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate! Racers can compete individually or in teams of four, and everyone is encouraged to compete in costume.

All air rifles are provided by Midcoast Conservancy, and each racer will receive safety training on how to use the rifle. Snowshoe racers are welcome.

Races will begin about 9 am and continue into the early afternoon. All day long there will be bonfires, great food, and something on tap from Hallowell Brewing Company & Liberal Cup Brew Pub one of our major sponsors. Spectators are encouraged. And consider volunteering if you’re not planning to race; we can always use extra hands!

Race categories are based on self-selected skill levels, and there are special categories for youth racers. Awards will be given out for best costume, best team name, and for youth and high school aged participants. The winning team will be honored at the official Liberal Cup trophy ceremony.

$35 for adults, $10 for kids and students. Registration will begin Dec. 1st. Space is limited, prices go up Feb. 23rd, and there are no day-of registrations. Any questions, call Midcoast Conservancy at (207) 389-5150.
