Summer Schedule!!!!

Oh... summer in Maine. How I love that we live in Vacationland! On any given day we can visit the ocean, lakes, mountains, farms, islands, small town villages, cities, theme parks, plus all the fairs and festivals, and be back home for dinner. My head starts spinning with all that I want to do with my family over the summer, and of course, it will all go by so fast. 

One way for your children to keep pace this summer is to ground those feet, revive, renew, and breathe on a regular basis. How, you ask? I would recommend YOGA! This summer's yoga classes will all have purpose and intention. We will have fun all while learning how to energize, regulate and relax our bodies. We will be and act out as objects of nature, will experiment with teamwork in partner and group poses, and play with concepts of self, as a unique, special and powerful being in a world with wonderful possibilities. And the coolest part.. we do it all OUTSIDE!

Classes will be held on The Eastern Promenade, next to the Kiley Field ballpark. If the weather chooses not to cooperate, our rain location will be The Heart Opening, so no worries about missing a class! 
It is recommended that you register your children for the session because the classes will be progressive, although walk-ins are completely welcome.

Baby Violet has arrived!

I've been a stranger to this blog while awaiting the birth of my second child. Classes were put on hold as I grew to a size I didn't know was possible. And on March 17th, in the very early morning, baby Violet entered this world and our lives. Now that spring is in the air... I think..., and Violet is finally here, my brain is allowing other thoughts to enter. I'm working on setting up summer classes, most definitely outdoors again, and hopefully some indoors as well. So please stay tuned for upcoming information in the near future. Namaste!

Yoga at the Portland Library a hit!!

I had the pleasure of doing yoga with lots of kids from all over Portland to the theme of "Make a Splash- Read!"
We boated, waterskiied, surfed, and became ocean animals on our yoga journey. Thank you to all of the children that shared this adventure with me!!
