Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists

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.

A little about Jennifer…

Jennifer’s yoga journey began over a decade ago when she took her first power Vinyasa class in 2007. She was recovering from a running injury and seeking an alternative way to manage stress and remain active. She had no idea that yoga would become so much more to her over the years than a regular workout routine. Class after class, Jennifer began to appreciate how yoga has the ability to create strength, flexibility and transformation of our mind, body and soul. It aligns us with gratitude for the present moment and inspires us to lead healthier more purposeful lives. Over the past 10 years, she has practiced many styles of yoga in various studios throughout the country. Jennifer completed her 200hr teacher certification with Leslee Clark of Well Heart Yoga School in Falmouth Maine in 2015 and Yoga Assistant Training with Sue Jones and Ray Mucci of Prana Power Yoga in Cambridge Massachusetts in 2011 and 2017. A Doctor of Physical Therapy practicing locally in Portland, Jennifer is a specialist in pelvic floor, oncology and perinatal rehabilitation. She utilizes her passion for yoga in a holistic approach to healing injury. Her teaching is authentic and playful drawing from her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to create a safe and intentional practice for her students. Jennifer believes yoga is truly a gift and feels incredibly grateful to share it with this community.

Tweed Ride @ Meet in Monument Square

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!
