Midcoast Humane Society and Jai Yoga invite you to an all-smiles event, Kitten Yoga.
Join us for an all-levels yoga class featuring an adorable crew of (adoptable) kittens from Midcoast Humane. Connect with your inner feline! Prance, pounce, play and purr through a spirited yoga class offered at Jai Yoga in Brunswick ME. The kittens get important socialization and the humans get smiles and warm-fuzzies from the kitties’ presence.

All Proceeds benefit the important work of Midcoast Humane. Suggested donation $25

Meet & Greet the Kitten Bowl All-Stars! These kitties will be playing in the Kitten Bowl at Midcoast Humane on Feb 2. They will be available for adoption after the big game.

Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center
Jan 20 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center | Jefferson | Maine | United States

Midcoast Conservancy will offer a full moon hike (or snowshoe, depending on conditions) at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. Enjoy a crisp evening illuminated by the glow of the moon and discover a new way of being in the woods. At night, sounds become more pronounced; listen for owls and the rustling of nighttime foragers along the trail.
Meet at the gate at HVNC at 4:30 pm. Dress warmly, wear shoes/boots with good grips and a hiking stick if desired, snack, drink and flashlight or headlamp. Guide Chuck Dinsmore will lead the hike to shore of Little Dyer Pond, to watch the moon rise over the water. The hike will be about 40 minutes each way, and of moderate ease. Snowshoes are available by reservation, or bring your own, if we have snow.

Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists
Jan 22 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
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

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??
