Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Mar 23 @ 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
Mar 23 @ 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.

Maine Maple Sunday @ Maine Maple Producers Association

The Maine Maple Producers Association welcomes you to join Maine’s Maple Syrup Producers, statewide, as they celebrate Maine Maple Sunday. Most sugarhouses offer free maple syrup samples and demonstrations on how pure Maine maple syrup is made. Many farms offer games, activities, treats, sugarbush tours, music, and so much more.
Maine Maple Sunday is always the fourth Sunday in March although some sugarhouses are offering events for both Saturday and Sunday. Please be sure to read the description of each sugarhouse to know what times they will be open and the activities they offer.

Mary’s Walk & Kerrymen 5K @ Starts at Thornton Academy
Mar 24 @ 12:00 pm
Mary's Walk & Kerrymen 5K @ Starts at Thornton Academy | Saco | Maine | United States

Mary’s Walk began in 1999 as a unique way to recognize and remember Mary Kerry Libby, a much-loved member of the Saco-Biddeford community who passed away from Burkitt’s Lymphoma.

What started as a simple memorial stroll through town with a few hundred people has evolved into a major community effort that has attracted over 50,000 participants in its 20-year span and raised over $3 million to support Maine-based cancer programs.

Last year Mary’s Walk, and its companion run, the Kerrymen 5K, raised nearly $250,000 and attracted 2,000 participants to downtown Saco.

Thanks to advances in the understanding of cancer, Burkitt’s Lymphoma now has an effective treatment that saves lives every year. We will continue to support the memory of Mary and all men and women who suffer from every type of cancer until we can proudly celebrate a Maine without cancer.

Slancha!
