For folks who have long harbored surfing fantasies, here's a chance to get surf-inspired exercise, sans the big waves and beach sand.
For pregnant women and new moms who have a hankering for a good sweat, medicine balls and some walking lunges thrown in for good measure, there's Warrior Moms.
Maine Warrior Gym really is like a jungle gym for grownups. The monkey bars, warped walls, ropes and salmon ladder give that away as soon as you step inside.
By now, you're likely familiar with the idea. It's yoga - the downward dogs and planks and twists and triangles you're perhaps already familiar with - except instead of a mat, there's a paddleboard under you.
These yoga sails fill up fast, and for good reason. It's yoga. On a sailboat!
YogaYavira combines two of life's most splendid things: yoga + beer. (And hey, if you don't really think yoga is all that splendid, the after-yoga brews might convince you to come anyway. I'm pretty sure that's exactly why instructor Erin Compton is leading these classes. It's like she knows us.)
Update: Barn Bootcamp has been cancelled for the rest of the month. Darn! It’s bootcamp. In a barn! Kendra Wheeler,
I tried Strike Fit. And wow, there was sweating. There was panting. There was a sense of toughness that lingers days later (just like the soreness in my arms and quads).
The full moon brings out all the best events - like a full moon canoe in Old Town, full moon yoga on a Portland rooftop, and full moon hike on Noyes Mountain in Greenwood. But you can also enjoy a morning workout at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, do yoga and get a surf lesson in Scarborough, run the streets of Munjoy Hill at night, and tackle an amazing assortment of obstacles on the mountain at Sunday River.
Go on a city-wide scavenger hunt, run a 5k in a kilt, and enjoy a bike ride that ends with a lobster roll.
