Beginner’s Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Jun 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Beginner's Yoga @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

The beginner class focuses on the fundamental principles of alignment and a sequence of postures linked together by the breath. Students will be introduced to yoga poses through step by step verbal description and demonstration. Emphasis is placed on student understanding, safety, and stability within each pose. Props and posture modifications are offered to accommodate new or tighter bodies. No yoga experience is necessary. Class is open to all ages.

About your Instructor: Laurie Chadbourne believes that we all come to yoga with different needs and goals and sometimes we may not even know why we are arriving upon the mat. Yoga calls us in and guides us. Her intention is to create a safe, supportive practice that is accessible for everyone, at every age and every stage of life. She aspires to lead you through compassionate, judgment free, lighthearted classes linking breath and movement as she embarks on the journey of teaching. Robert A. Heinlein inspires her with, “When one teaches, two learn.”

Laurie enjoys reading and playing the guitar. She truly believes laughter may be the best medicine (next to yoga) and brings plenty of that with her on and off the mat.

Weekly Group SUP Paddle @ Portland Paddle

Weekly Group SUP Paddle @ Portland Paddle

We’re bringing back our weekly SUP paddles for our 2019 season! Starting on June 6 our staff will lead an early morning paddle from our site at the East End Beach every Thursday. It’s free to join with your own board or just $15 to rent one from us ($10 off the usual rate).

This weekly gathering is a casual paddle open to anyone with some SUP experience who feels comfortable and confident on a board. This isn’t a guided trip, so everyone is responsible for their own safety and it’s not a good fit for total novices. That said, our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport and offer tips and support. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants.

A note about weather: If we need to cancel a weekly paddle due to weather conditions we will post an update on our Meetup page and on Facebook.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Jun 13 @ 4:30 pm – 5:45 pm
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

The room is heated up to 80 degrees.

Each class is unique and targets a peak pose. The class is led with intention and intelligent sequencing to prepare the body properly for apex of the practice. We work foundational and primary poses in each session. And the root of the teachings is to develop the capacity for self-inquiry. The body becomes the vehicle. 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. Thus creating ease. As we create strength in the body we also begin to embrace stillness and longer holds. In leaving a class one should have a feeling of stability, strength and a connection to the body.

This class is a dynamic practice. Please hydrate properly before the class.

About your instructor: The landscape of Amy Figoli’s teaching is to hold the intention for people to find a way in, to meet the totality of oneself through asana practice, as well as working with the ability to begin to listen to what is arising. Learning to not override the currently pushing language of culture and of our bodies. To hold the space for silence, and listen inquisitively to how the body speaks.

Classes designed for teens and adults, but if you have a little one who can sit on a mat for an hour, feel free to bring them. There will no supervision elsewhere on the farm during class.

All classes are one hour, all level vinyasa classes in the field next to our goat pasture and end with goat snuggles and cheese tasting. Proceeds are split between instructor and farm. And… since the self-serve fridge is open Fri-Sun, people who attend yoga get early dibs on all the weekends treats! Hope to see you all back again this summer and to meet many new folks in the field as well. There is limited parking, and usually a turn out of 50-80 people, so try to carpool and pull all the way in to park behind the barn. Bring your mat and some water and get ready to enjoy a sweet outdoor class! Please note: Herd dynamics change throughout the season, so some weeks classes are next to the goats with baby snuggling after class, other weeks we will practice with goats in and amongst the mats! I try to decide based on what will make the goats most happy and quiet for our hour of yoga! The majority of the goat kids are at the farm for the June classes.

Bond Brook Tread Fest @ Bond Brook Recreation Area
Jun 14 – Jun 15 all-day
Bond Brook Tread Fest @ Bond Brook Recreation Area | Augusta | Maine | United States

A fundraiser for the trails and a celebration of mountain biking and trail running!
Friday afternoon – Trail Running
Saturday – Bike races

There is something for everyone. We are really excited to bring this Stage Race to the region. As an athlete you can go “all in” or pick and choose the events that appeal to you. We hope we have created something for everyone and that a ton of the riding community come out to support the growth of the trails in the region. THIS EVENT IS A FUNDRAISER TO BUILD MORE AND BETTER TRAILS IN THE REGION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Stage 1: We’ve gone back to our roots a little bit with Stage 1. With so few traditional XCO style races left we are bringing back a little taste of old school mtb racing. Take it serious, or not at all, it’s completely up to you and a great way to spend some time on your bike, riding a great course, and supporting trail growth. The course is a fun mix of climbs, rock gardens, and fast flowing descents, and some more climbs.

Stage 2:This is a Mountain Bike time trial. The course will be 4-5 miles long and will be a different variation from any of the other stages. You will be racing against the clock and at the end of the day there are no categories, no brackets, and no extra podiums. You are mostly racing for points in the stage race. There will be 3 men and 3 women on the podium. If you are competing in the overall stage race your finish place will be the number of points for your total standing. The stage will start 90 minutes after Stage 1 ends with riders leaving at 30 second intervals. We will start riders based upon previous results and/or your entry category in other stages.

Stage 3: The Fun-duro is back better than ever!. There will be a minimum of 5 timed segments. All segments will be descents(mostly). Each segment will be timed and the cumulative time for each segment will determine the winners. We will recognize the fastest times for each segment during the awards. Between segments you can take your time getting to the next segment; catch your breath, have a drink, eat some food as there is no real rush. The “transition” as it’s known in big Enduro races will be a time to make sure you are rested and ready to start the next section(within reason of course, we don’t want people stopping for a picnic between segments).

Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool
Jun 14 @ 6:00 am – 6:45 am
Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool | Biddeford | Maine | United States

Boot camp uses interval, circuit, and aerobic training. It will burn fat, tone muscle, improve posture, build strength and endurance, and build confidence. You work out your arms, legs, and core using exercises that incorporate your whole body. Boot camp can get you into the best shape of your life. As one of my campers stated, “I am stronger, faster, and leaner”
A typical day includes a warm up, stretches, the ‘workout’, cool down, a possible game or challenge, and finishing stretches.

Boot camps varying routines are intense sessions that offer a variety of exercises, and challenge every muscle in your body. By rapidly moving from one exercise to the next, with minimal breaks, you can get a cardiovascular workout while simultaneously toning your muscles. And, you burn lots of calories. Its fun, varied, motivating, produces amazing results, and meets at a fantastic location.

Boot camp’s 45 minutes workouts allow you to do strength training and aerobic training in a single workout, which is very efficient when you have a limited time to work out.

Beginners Yoga w/ Marcia @ Threads of Yoga

Beginners Yoga w/ Marcia @ Threads of Yoga | Bridgton | Maine | United States

We begin with gentle movements to warm the body. This part of the practice includes gliding and circular motions to release tension from areas of congestion and restriction in the body. You are introduced to slower movements of the body in preparation for more movement in the form of Vinyasa. We transition into standing postures to begin to cultivate stability and strength. Props are utilized in the practice as support. The combination of these gentle movements and postures leads to the cultivation of a strong, flexible body.

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.

Please hydrate properly before the class.

Waldoboro Day 5K @ Waldoboro Village

Waldoboro Day 5K @ Waldoboro Village

Waldoboro Day 5K returns June 15

Maine’s favorite hill workout disguised as a race returns this June. 

The 22nd running of the Waldoboro Day 5K will take place on Saturday, June 15 in the historic Waldoboro Village to kick off the annual celebration of the town. 

One of the oldest 5Ks in the state of Maine, the Waldoboro Day 5K has been revitalized over the last couple of years by embracing what makes Waldoboro unique. Last year’s race saw a record number of runners conquer the hills and the race’s founder, Waldoboro’s own Jeffrey Sprague, claim his first title in 18:39. The top 4 finishers were all Waldoboro natives, a testament to the town’s record of producing some of the best runners in the state of Maine. 

Once again this year, runners will start in the Village and tour the town, with the course featuring a “Rest Area” sponsored by Dow Furniture, a whoopie pie aid station sponsored by Moody’s Diner, and pickle juice recovery shots at the finish line from Morse’s Sauerkraut. 

The race also features a team competition with the winners receiving a beer tasting at Odd Alewives Farm Brewery. 

Registration for the race is $20. Part of the fee will be split between Healthy Lincoln County’s Summer Meals program at Miller School in Waldoboro and the Area Interfaith Outreach (AIO) Food Pantry’s “Backpack” program to help fight childhood food insecurity.

T-shirts are included for the first 75 runners or while supplies last.

Runners can register in advance at Long Winter Soap Co. at 11 Friendship St. in Waldoboro or online at WaldoboroDay5K.com. Day-of registration will also begin at 7:30 a.m., prior to the 8:30 a.m. race.

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.

Vinyasa Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Jun 18 @ 4:30 pm
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.
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.

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.

Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool
Jun 19 @ 6:00 am – 6:45 am
Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool | Biddeford | Maine | United States

Boot camp uses interval, circuit, and aerobic training. It will burn fat, tone muscle, improve posture, build strength and endurance, and build confidence. You work out your arms, legs, and core using exercises that incorporate your whole body. Boot camp can get you into the best shape of your life. As one of my campers stated, “I am stronger, faster, and leaner”
A typical day includes a warm up, stretches, the ‘workout’, cool down, a possible game or challenge, and finishing stretches.

Boot camps varying routines are intense sessions that offer a variety of exercises, and challenge every muscle in your body. By rapidly moving from one exercise to the next, with minimal breaks, you can get a cardiovascular workout while simultaneously toning your muscles. And, you burn lots of calories. Its fun, varied, motivating, produces amazing results, and meets at a fantastic location.

Boot camp’s 45 minutes workouts allow you to do strength training and aerobic training in a single workout, which is very efficient when you have a limited time to work out.
