Yoga & Readings in Maine start Now!

Today I went to practice at one of my usual spots, Maine Hatha Yoga (formerly Maine Bikram) where I went from a sometimes yogi to a dedicated student in 2003. And I got to talk to some "friends I'd never met" there too! Thank you all for the warm welcome back! I believe in the community aspect of yoga, and though it's fine to practice at home, there is another element to practicing in the energy of others and I very much adhere to that! My own practices are fueled by you who are next to me, focusing, breathing and maybe sweating along. Namaste. I truly honor that. 

Sunday I start the first ever Yin Yoga class at Maine  Hatha Yoga 10 am to 11:30. Yin targets the connective tissue and the meridians of Chinese medicine. In each class I will mention some of this. All you really need to know now is that a deep, cleansing stretch is in order. It will be meditative with lower light, longer holds, mainly floor based (as in, you are low to the floor), and will open up stuck places as you find and work with your edge.  

Tuesday, I'm at Scarborough Yoga for two classes at 9:30 and at 12, Wednesday at Maine Hatha for a hot class at noon, and Friday at 12 noon for the only RoZoYo® weekly class at The Breathing Room South Portland (which will always be awesome and a little bit unpredictable as we follow the Moon, Sun & planets).

I hope you can join me! Never be nervous to try! I'm nervous every time I start something new, but it's always good! I promise you the easiest introduction to yoga, and it will change your body and your life. in positive ways. This is why yoga became a part of my life I could never stay away from. 

Scarborough Yoga is brand new and attached to Chiropractic Family Wellness Center. I first came to CFWC in 2003, and  I felt highly motivated to  join the yoga practice in their new healing arts facility on Route 1 in Scarborough. 9:30 & 12 on Tuesdays. One hour classes for your convenience & busy schedule.
Breathing Room is such a warm, inviting community oriented studio centered in SoPo, my home. I've offered workshops and classes there since summer 2013, and now we make it the studio home for a weekly RoZoYo® astrology inspired yoga class! 12 Noon to 1 on Fridays

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training just announced today!  The world needs you as a Restorative Yoga Teacher. This is where the inner work, the cleansing, the self acceptance, the surrender happens. This practice is so needed as we move forward and reconcile all we are inundated with every day, personally and as a culture. I would love to introduce you to the philosophy, the anatomy, the layers, and the reasons for the stillness of Restorative Yoga. We'll contrast the practice with Yin yoga also so you'll get a feel for Yin and for the similariti…
