Yoga Classes

Yoga is a wonderful method of exercise. It teaches how to recognize when your body is under stress and teaches you methods to help counteract stress. Unlike most exercise programs that work mostly on the circulatory and muscular systems, yoga works on all of the body including the endocrine, circulatory, vascular, nervous, lymphatic, digestive, respiratory, and muscular systems. Students will work on stretches, postures, breathing, and relaxation methods.

Dennis Kimmage received certification from Power Pilates and continued his training for several years in Portland at the advanced level. He has taught Pilates for several years at Bowdoin College, Merrymeeting Adult Education and PeoplePlus.
