Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists
Dec 12 @ 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.

Portland SWEAT Project
FREE OUTDOOR WORKOUT

there is no better way to wake up and say good morning than with a group of strangers who all happen to be in one place because of an early morning workout

WHO? Good People. [age, athletic ability, social status, ethnicity – not applicable] In other words, this is for EVERYONE.

WHAT? FREE outdoor sweat session. Workouts are scalable and FUN. The sweat session will challenge you, the atmosphere will change you.

WHERE? Various locations in Portland (Baxter Boulevard/Back Cove Trail, Eastern Prom, City Hall.). See www.facebook.com/PortlandSweatProject/ for each week’s location

WHEN? Wednesdays at 6:29 AM – Rain or Shine

WHY? Because sometimes we need a reminder to wake up and get moving. It’s your accountability, motivation and reason to get in shape.

All you have to do is lace up your shoes and show up.
See you there.

Dyna Maxx Christmas Meet (Party)! @ Dyna Maxx Gym
Dec 15 @ 4:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Dyna Maxx Christmas Meet (Party)! @ Dyna Maxx Gym | Westbrook | Maine | United States

It’s the most wonderful meeeeeeeeet of the year!!!

It’s time for the annual Dyna Maxx Christmas Meet/Christmas Party! A sign-up sheet will be up in the gym for anyone who wants to “compete”, and for everyone else, swing by and watch your friends set some PRs!

We use the term “compete” very loosely. There will be no weigh ins, no entry fee, no singlets. There will be judges. But they probably won’t notice if you lift your ass off the bench.

There will be a pot-luck so please feel free to bring a food or beverage of your choice!
