Join us at Banded Horn Brewing to crush a killer yoga sculpt class taught by Emma Brunet! Energetic, loving and active, Emma trained in sunny southern California in power yoga.

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!

Join Maine Yoga Adventures for a special day out with the animals at Lone Spruce Farm. We’ll meet up at the farm for a wonderful tour of the grounds. The Beauchamp family are the hearts and hands that make up Lone Spruce Farm in Dedham. Their farm is dedicated to education, community, and sustainable agriculture. They are doing all that they can to ensure a diverse, bright future. Maine Yoga Adventures is very excited to visit with a shared love for nature and community!
Adventurers will get to the know the goats a little better practicing yoga alongside them. Springtime at the farm means lots of babies to meet and greet! No yogi will mind getting distracted by cuteness.
A yummy vegetarian meal will be served of salad, bread, cheese & chocolate. We’ll then head out onto trails to soak in the beauty and relax beside a sweet creek.
Cost: $40. Please register online at maineyogaadventures.com or call 207-299-0082.

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.
