Stephanie and Jessie are putting their heads together to get some more Yoga and Farm activities for adults events on the calendar for the 2021 outdoor season. There will most likely be some spring classes in May and late summer classes in August. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be first to know when registration for these events opens.

Free Yoga For Maine School Teachers & Staff
If you are a Maine schools staff member interested in yoga please email Yoga Next Door to access your free classes. Teachers and school staff have gone above and beyond to support our children during Covid. A local donor had the idea of thanking and supporting our teachers with free yoga classes. The free classes were first announced on social media for local MSAD51 staff and the school and community response was overwhelmingly positive. Teachers felt seen and grateful for the opportunity to access some much needed yoga and the community responded by donating more yoga classes for teachers and school staff. Since so many classes were donated we have expanded the pool to Maine school staff in addition to MSAD51 staff. If you know a school staff member that could use some free yoga (2 classes per teacher) send them my way. If you would like to contribute some free yoga classes for teachers please donate here. Namaste! Jessie
One Free Teacher Class
This pass will be donated to a MSAD51 teacher or staff member to use for a studio or online Yoga Next Door class.
INTERVIEW: Curious how Yoga Next Door has navigated the conditions of the pandemic? Please check out this interview I did with WordPress.com last summer. Since then I have added a second WordPress site to house the Class Library. This interview also captures the story of how Yoga Next Door came to be.
BLOG & INTERVIEW: At the end of September 2020 I was interviewed by Soutiens about how working, home-schooling parents can find time to fit yoga and self care into their routines. We also discussed the benefits of yoga for parents and in the workplace. Soutiens helps progressive companies empower expectant and working parents to succeed by supporting working parents and the companies that value them.
