Summer SUP Yoga Series @ Portland Paddle
Jul 23 all-day
Summer SUP Yoga Series @ Portland Paddle

If you enjoy yoga and you like being on the water, you’ll probably have a blast trying out SUP Yoga at the East End Beach this summer. You don’t need to be an expert yogi or an expert paddler. All experience levels are welcome. If it’s your first time there’s a decent chance you’ll get wet, so make sure you wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet, along with an extra warm layer! We’ll provide anchors for each SUP so that the entire group can circle around the instructor without floating away.

Tuesdays, 5:30 – 7:00 PM, June 25-July 30
Instructor: Ashley Flowers
Registration ends June 18, 2019

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

Beginner’s Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Jul 24 @ 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.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Jul 25 @ 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga @ Threads of Yoga
Aug 8 @ 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.

Aug 8 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Yoga with Goats at Sunflower Farm @ Sunflower Farm Creamery | Cumberland | Maine | United States

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!

Thursdays 5:30-6:30pm
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.

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.

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.

Gentle Yoga w/ Amy @ Threads of Yoga
Aug 10 @ 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.
