Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists

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.

Shine Dance Fitness @ SHINE DANCE FITNESS - ALL CLASSES @ AQUARIUS BALLROOM DANCE
Dec 18 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Shine Dance Fitness @ SHINE DANCE FITNESS - ALL CLASSES @ AQUARIUS BALLROOM DANCE | Portland | Maine | United States

1st class is FREE!!! Shine Dance fitness incorporates Jazz, Hip Hop, and Ballet all while dancing to today’s hits (think 97.9). My two favorite things about SHiNE: It’s FUN, and it’s YOURS! Every routine is easily modifiable to ANY fitness level. If you need low impact and small range of motion, SHiNE can be that. If you need killer cardio and deep booty squats, SHiNE can be that! If you need a great workout that feels like a party, SHiNE is definitely that! What are you waiting for??

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.

Winter Solstice Lantern Walk @ Houghton Graves Park

Winter Solstice Lantern Walk @ Houghton Graves Park | Harpswell | Maine | United States

Friday, Dec. 21, from 5-6 p.m.
Houghton Graves Park, 1714 Harpswell Islands Rd, Orr’s Island

Celebrate the winter solstice with a lantern walk and bonfire. Welcome the lengthening days with light, song and community. Walk along a short, easy trail lined with lanterns and luminaria. You are encouraged to bring a lantern to carry. At the end of the trail, warm up with songs, fire, hot cocoa and sweet treats.

All are welcome at this free, family-friendly event. Advance registration is requested to help us plan. Click here to register or contact Julia McLeod at outreach@hhltmaine.org or 207-837-9613.

Bring warm clothes, a flashlight, your lantern (optional), and a travel mug for your cocoa (to help us use fewer disposable cups). We will provide LED lights to place in your lanterns.

You are welcome to show up at any time during the hour. The lantern walk is self-guided. There will be cocoa, cookies and a campfire for the whole time, and there will be music for at least the first half hour.

Thank you to the Harpswell Community School PTO for co-sponsoring the event and to Lowe’s for donating the fire pits.
