A born leader and yoga-lover, Emma knew instructing yoga would be the perfect fit for her. Emma strives for her classes to be upbeat, restoring and a great workout so you know her class is gonna be amazing! You’ll be going through tons of flows followed by some bodyweight moves that will get your heart rate pumpin’ and help lengthen and strengthen to help achieve long, lean muscles.

After you burn, you’ll be rewarded with Banded Horn’s seasonal brew: Wicked Bueno. Wicked Bueno is light on the palate with a hint of citrus-floral hops which will hopefully transport us to the wicked good days of summer!

    Kayak Rescue Clinic @ Portland Paddle
    Jul 1 @ 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
    Kayak Rescue Clinic @ Portland Paddle | Portland | Maine | United States

    Getting back into a kayak after a capsize is more difficult than you might expect — but only if you’re not prepared. That why it’s important to be familiar with some techniques that enable you to rescue yourself and fellow paddlers if someone accidentally goes for a swim. This course, open to anyone who has sea kayaked at least once before, will give you a chance to learn and practice some of the most tried and true kayak rescues. Portland Paddle (and most sea kayaking outfitters in the U.S. and Canada) will require you to have the skills taught in this course before letting you rent a sea kayak for use on open coastal waters. As with all our courses, your instructor will customize the course to meet with each student’s goals and interests. Wetsuits and all necessary gear are provided. Plan to get wet!

    Adult Summer Camp Weekend @ Tops'l Farm
    Aug 10 – Aug 12 all-day
    Adult Summer Camp Weekend @ Tops'l Farm | Waldoboro | Maine | United States

    How does a weekend with your pals spent throwing axes, foraging for cocktails, playing barn games & cruising the Maine coast sound? Yeah, that’s what we thought. We have an epic weekend planned for our 2nd annual Adult Summer Camp weekend and hope you and your pals can join us. Let’s just break down the itinerary for you and we’ll see how fast you can herd that group of friends you have together and claim your spots!

    Friday Night — We are putting together a ridonkulas welcome cornucopia at the campsites…a cured meats/local cheese/dippy-things bonanza and of course accompanied by adult beverages. Camp fires, s’mores & perhaps a ghost story or two will cap the evening off. (cue starry skies, the smell of pine and deliciously comfy bedding).

    Saturday — Kick the day off with an open fire breakfast, enjoyed family style in the middle of the woods with cider mimosas, and make plans for the day. Yoga in the yurt? Hiking? Naps? Or yes, all three. Take the day to explore this special area in Maine’s mid-coast — we can hook you up with suggestions and optional custom services for the day! Just ask.

    Saturday Night — Put on your walkin’ shoes. We’ll be moving through the different magical spots at Tops’l Farm for a progressive and locally sourced meal — starting at the barn with lawn games & cocktails — finishing at the campground for desert and more good times.

    Sunday — Bloody Marys at the barn on your way out with optional archery school to cap off the weekend.

    Cost: $499/person for a shared cabin — includes breakfasts & dinners and accommodations. Some activities included – others are a la cart.
