Do you feel like there just isn't enough time?
Are you striving to be a better parent, partner or care-giver?
By taking the time to care for yourself you can find enough time for everything. A regular yoga practice will give you the tools you need to bring the distractions down to a dull roar so you can focus your time and energy on the things that really matter to you.
This series meets once each week for 6 weeks. Unlimited attendance at any of our regular drop-in classes is also included in the cost for students new to Yoga in ME. Students who are brand new to yoga as well as those starting over - whether because of a long break from yoga, an injury or other reasons - are welcome! We will provide the support you need to get started with yoga in a safe and compassionate environment.

THE BEST GIFT I EVER GAVE MY CHILDREN
In 1999 I still thought I had to be perfect: I was a full-time over-achieving graduate student, was a wife to a man who was typically at work over 80 hours a week and, almost entirely by myself, managed a household and parented my three children ages 6, 8 and 10, I volunteered at the elementary school, my house was immaculate, and so on. As a preacher’s kid from a small farming community in Wisconsin, I lived with the idea that people were watching me and that I needed to live up to their expectations. Although I wasn’t hooked into following conventions that didn’t make sense to me, for example, I didn’t have a t.v. in the house for many years, I definitely thought I should do everything I chose to do perfectly - as if I was being judged.
Not surprising, I did not find joy in my life. Read more about how yoga helped me change this and more...
