Nothin’ finer than Music Festival Yoga!
Relax! It’s a July Morning in rural Maine. The chickadees are chirping, a breeze rustles the pine boughs, kids are playing tag, fiddles are being tuned, and all you have to worry about is breathing.
The Ossipee Yoga Class is for all levels and ages, with a focus on stretching, balancing, breathing and honing in. Bring a water bottle, and a mat if you have one. Get there early as the barn is full during each session.
New! The Ossipee Kids Class is a gentle, upbeat and fun way to explore yoga! Lots of play including becoming cats, cows, eagles, even snakes! Balance games and more! A great way to encourage children to get moving, and to be mindful and calm all at once!
