Warrior Yoga with David GlazebrookThis class was fun with a unique spin on vinyasa. I would join Dave's studio if I lived closer to York.
COMMUNITY CLASS ~ Yoga For ALL BodiesLOVE LOVE LOVE LOVED
Aerial Decompression with Robin Ivy PaytonI had never really liked previous Ariel yoga classes at yoga festival, this was well designed, carefully presented and a joy to do! Robin was clear and welcoming, the space was clean and windows open, she demonstrated enough with still keeping us doing, her moves flowed better than previous Ariel classes and I enjoyed some new variations, great class!
Pelvic Floor Yoga with Amanda DelormeGentle class, good first thing in the morning, she did a great job keeping it trauma sensitive. I would have liked better if she had described her take on mula banda, there was no effort at all on how to lift there. But I liked the visualizations , it was sweet.
Yin Yoga: Bringing Balance to Your Internal WorldA great send-off to an incredible weekend ~ Stephen
Slow the Funk DownPerfect for the final class of the day.
Somatic Flow with Amy Leydon & Alicia MathewsonSuper! going to come to Boston just to check you out!!!! Amy McLellan
Warrior Yoga with David GlazebrookGood. I would like more workshops that actually broke down asanas. Maybe 30 minutes of asana posture work and then the flow?
Melissa Boyd Subtle Body Activations to Grow Your Knowing ®At first I thought it was kind of "hokey"...:)....but the realness of you came through. I would love to revisit my experience with you soon. Amy
LUNCH BREAK ~ Swan KirtanI just bought a harmonium. Would you ever consider teaching me?
Reset Your Seat with Gretchen CamposGretchen is a wonderful teacher and I loved her class.
COMMUNITY CLASS ~ Yoga For ALL BodiesI love how Katie fills the space with enthusiasm and positivity. Great very slow class with so much focus on breathing that breathing felt new
Yin Yoga: Bringing Balance to Your Internal WorldI wanted to try a class by Andrea because I admire how she has put together this wonderful Maine Yogafest, and has resurrected it after the pandemic. Yin is not a comfortable practice for me. Holding poses does not serve my body well. I am happy to have taken the class.
Jacqui Bonwell Chakra CleanseOur group travels from Central Maine and are all groupies of Jaqui. She has such a unique and engaging style that is unforgettable. We will always arrange our schedules around her classes. This was a beautifully orchestrated class that stoked up our inner fires to be strong and confident and then helped us cool down our common reactions to life to process it through the heart, throat, and bigger picture. The takeaway from this class are Jaqui's words that have now become my mantra: "I am not going to let the hell out there change the heaven in me."
Tear Down the WALL with Amy LeydonAmy was fantastic! This event was really special and made yoga so much fun! I will never see Pink Floyd the same again. I also liked her cues about tearing down the walls in ourselves, especially aligned with the chakras and how the music coordinated with each center. Brilliant!

Take ACTION: Creating a Life of FulfillmentNicole was awesome. The lesson was very helpful and thought prevoking. Totally enjoyed it.
Breathwork Journey- Illuminate, Nourish & Enliven Your Empowered SelfI can’t say enough about Tania’s workshop. I left a puddle of tears on my mat but finally felt peace and calm afterwards.
Pranayama Workshop—“Expanding the Life Force”This workshop with Shug was absolutely phenomenal. What a great opportunity it was to focus on pranayama. His ability to explain it in a way that is easily understandable and applicable, so we can practice it better, and teach it to our students. Thank you.
