Aromatic Yoga Nidra - May - New Date


with Susan Coady, Maranacook Adult Education

May 11, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Aromatic Yoga Nidra is yogic deep relaxation combined with the sensory experience of essential oils, which transport us to deeper states of consciousness. Yoga Nidra is a luminous state of mind hovering between wakefulness and dream, which is profoundly healing. An hour of Yoga Nidra rejuvenates like 4 hours of deep sleep! The guided relaxation takes you into the subtle centers - the chakras- and the oils have been specifically blended for each one. You will receive the oil in your palm, healing touch, at head and feet and hear the pure tones of crystal bowls. Come relax and rejuvenate! Please note: the oils are not suitable for pregnant women, who can enjoy the experience without them. Facilitated by Susan Coady, oils by Kathy Leone, healing hands of Marion Messenger and Erin Drapeau.

You’ll be surprised at the journey your soup can, yogurt container and paper products take: Tide containers shipped to China, that become your polar fleece jacket; recyclables sorted on a conveyor belt using laser beam technology; non-recyclable waste incinerated and turned into electricity; plus how all this helps take a bite out of climate change. Learn convenient ways to sort waste, make a positive impact on the environment, and lower trash outputs and costs. Bring your questions: Do I rinse out cans and bottles first? What about pizza boxes and liners covered in cheese? What if a bag’s marked recyclable, but there’s no triangle? Can I recycle Styrofoam? ecomaine is your community-owned nonprofit waste management company, providing comprehensive long-term solid waste solutions in a safe, environmentally-responsible, economically-sound manner; they’re leaders in raising public awareness of sustainable waste management strategies and offer this as a free community service.

Chair Yoga


with Cheryl Aston, RSU 19 Adult Education

Jun 27, 2017 at 4 pm

Yoga is now accessible to everyone! Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that incorporates many classic yoga poses or asanas as well as gentle stretches. The classic yoga poses are adapted so students don't have to get up and down off the floor or be able to balance on one foot. Poses are done sitting on a chair or standing behind the chair for support. Class begins with a few moments of breath awareness and ends with a period of relaxation. Students should wear comfortable clothing and bring a small towel or blanket to sit on and a belt or scarf for stretches. No yoga mat required. No experience required. No flexibility required!
