A Journey Into the 8 Limbs of Yoga
Pemaquid, ME —The Good Supply is offering a series of yoga classes that will explore the “8 Limbs of Yoga” beginning the week of September 21 and ending the week of November 2. The public is invited to drop in on classes during scheduled times at The Good Supply’s yoga studio located behind its post and beam storefront.
Certified instructor Adam Weatherford will lead classes that incorporate discussion into sequences of traditional yoga poses. Initiating and ending classes with conversation is meant to build a feeling of togetherness, which students can take with them when they leave the studio. The “8 Limbs of Yoga” consist of the don’ts of life, the do’s of self, breath work, physical poses, meditation, steadiness of mind, and enlightenment.
Each class will be driven organically by participants’ own perspectives and experiences and paired with a physical practice. The style that will be used is a ladder vinyasa that will build up to a peak pose and flow into meditation.
Pricing will be affordable and cost $6.00 per one-hour session or $20.00 for a weekly pass. The schedule for classes will be Wednesday 6:45pm—7:45pm, Thursday 9:00am—10:00am and 5:30pm—6:30pm, Friday 5:30am—6:30am, and Sunday 3:00pm—4:00pm. Students should bring a water bottle, yoga mat, and towel. If necessary, the venue has a limited supply to lend.
The Good Supply, a small business known for promoting the work of local artisans, is open through October 16. Weatherford’s weekly classes will extend through November 6. The classes are designed to strengthen participants as individuals and as a community. All levels of experience and ability are encouraged to attend.
Adam experienced his first yoga class 12 years ago and has practiced all over the US, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Belize. He achieved his 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification under the direction of the Devotional School of Yoga, which focuses not only on physical poses but encourages students to explore attributes of the practice that go beyond the mat.
With a background in sports nutrition, substance abuse counseling, wildlife conservation, and behavioral therapies, Adam brings a holistic self-approach to the physical asana, which is the sanskrit word for pose. He hopes his involvement with The Good Supply will strengthen its mission to “cultivate community.”
