This training is free, on behalf of Healthy Lincoln County–a tier two distributor of Narcan in the State of Maine. Upon completion of this training you will receive one kit, with two doses of Narcan, to add to your first aid kit or AED box.

Reiki I Certification:

$30

with Donna Shaw, Lake Region & Fryeburg Area Adult Education

Come learn how Reiki works with your body’s natural energy field, including your “Auric Field,” chakras, and meridians. Reiki charges your physical body with positive energy and raises your natural vibratory level as it clears, balances, heals, and restores your vital life force energy. Students will receive hands-on training (table-time) and a Reiki I manual, attunement, and certificate. This class will be limited to 7 participants.

*Lab fee: $90 to be paid directly to instructor on the first day of class.

Toning & Strengthening

$45

with Wendy Lessard, Gray-New Gloucester Adult Education

Calendar Oct 4, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks
1 additional session on Nov 1, 2022

A 60 minute workout to access, rebalance, and challenge all muscles and joints in your body to mobilize, synergize, and strengthen. We ask the muscles to work in shortened (concentric) and lengthened (eccentric) movement patterns at multiple joint angles, leading to faster strength improvements with more mobility. Great for improving posture, prehabbing, rehabbing and improving performance.

Essentrics is great as your go to fitness modality, or it can “fill in the gaps” in your cross training efforts for all levels of athletes: from desk jockeys, to chasing toddlers, to Olympic competitors.
