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.
Portland SWEAT Project
FREE OUTDOOR WORKOUT
there is no better way to wake up and say good morning than with a group of strangers who all happen to be in one place because of an early morning workout
WHO? Good People. [age, athletic ability, social status, ethnicity – not applicable] In other words, this is for EVERYONE.
WHAT? FREE outdoor sweat session. Workouts are scalable and FUN. The sweat session will challenge you, the atmosphere will change you.
WHERE? Various locations in Portland (Baxter Boulevard/Back Cove Trail, Eastern Prom, City Hall.). See www.facebook.com/PortlandSweatProject/ for each week’s location
WHEN? Wednesdays at 6:29 AM – Rain or Shine
WHY? Because sometimes we need a reminder to wake up and get moving. It’s your accountability, motivation and reason to get in shape.
All you have to do is lace up your shoes and show up.
See you there.
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.
Join us Thursday nights from May-September as we partner with L.L.Bean for our weekly Bike & Brew rides. The 22- mile route begins and ends at Maine Beer Company, and is a self-supported, moderate skill group ride through the back roads of Freeport, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, and Pownal. Check in at Maine Beer Company between 4:30-5:15(you will need to fill out 2 waivers-only need to do this once), the ride leaves around 5:15, and is followed by a beer on your return.
I am so so so excited for another year of Yoga at the farm.
Meet us for the first class on Thursday May 30th then make it a weekly event!
Saturdays 9:30 am-10:30 am
End of May-Mid September 2019
No need for ticket or reservation, just come!
Donations for Class Support Farm’s No Cull Philosophy. Suggestion donation $10.-$15. per person
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.
