Restorative Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 15 @ 6:00 pm – Nov 16 @ 7:00 pm
Restorative Yoga @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

This class setting is created to be of support to the nervous system. A reset to the system and the opportunity for deep rest are good for the soul, the body and the mind. We come in to a variety of restorative postures to aid in the dropping of an anxious mind. And to support a stressed physical and emotional body. This class goes well in tandem with any of the our other scheduled classes.

If you have a current or old injury you may also attend this class and you will be supported. Please inform Amy accordingly.

No yoga experience is necessary. Open to all ages and Levels.

Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 17 @ 8:30 am
Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

The room is heated up to 80 degrees. During summer months, the heat is not on. We work a nature’s heat. This class is great for a good sweat!

Each class is unique and each class targets a peak pose through intelligent sequencing. The class is led with intention as you are properly prepared for the apex of the practice. We work with foundational and primary poses in each practice.

The practice session allows the body to open slowly, not to overload the nervous system, and in exchange, tension, stress, and congestion that has been stored in the muscles and joints now has the opportunity to release. We also work to create strength in the body as we begin to embrace longer holds and include movement. In leaving a class one should have a feeling of stability, strength and a connection to the body.

This class is a dynamic practice. No yoga experience is necessary, as modifications are offered.

Please hydrate properly before the class.

Gentle Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Nov 17 @ 10:00 am
Gentle Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

In this class we slow things down. We begin each practice with slow stretching of the body and preparing the body for movement in the form of Vinyasa. We make our transition into fluid movement at a slower pace, then winding down and easing into restorative. Practicing poses from this easeful state will help develop balance, strength, and resiliency and create a nourishing and rejuvenating experience of yoga.

Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists
Nov 20 @ 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.
