We CAN swing from a trapeze and climb silks and do hand stands (we might just need some help learning the basics and getting our - ahem - more mature bodies used to the movements). The Sellam Circus School in Biddeford is just the place to learn.
For an easy-going Sunday that you can still feel proud to talk about at work on Monday, there's Downdogs at Dirigo.

Pole fitness requires strength, flexibility, endurance, and a bit of panache to make it all look so graceful. Learning the art translates into a solid workout that's equal parts strength training and cardiovascular fitness.
Whether you're training for an obstacle course race or you just want a cool way to grow your strength, endurance, and agility, check out Anne L'Heureux's obstacle fitness classes, taught in her own Biddeford backyard.

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.)
