Yoga on the Pier at Maritime Gloucester

This class is wicked fun, low pressure, and ACCESSIBLE to people of all ages, athletic abilities, and flexibility. Enjoy a beautiful vista of Gloucester Harbor as the sounds, sights, and smells of America’s Oldest Seaport help to ground you and really start your weekend day off with gratitude and presence. It’s a great place to meet other active, healthy, and bright eyed locals.

Be sure to dress appropriately for a morning wake-up on Gloucester’s working waterfront – it never hurts to have a comfortable, larger sweatshirt – you can always take it off! If the weather is foul – we will do our best to announce cancellation of the class an hour in advance on the announcement bar on our website and facebook page.

Class is $15 if you’re just dropping in, and only $10 if you are a member of Maritime Gloucester or have a regular priced unlimited membership at Cape Ann Power Yoga. Mats are available for use for FREE. We really encourage you to sign up for a membership at the Museum and support their mission so they can continue to provide the unparalleled programming they do year after year. It’s only $40 for an individual membership and that money goes to ensure that local kids get to learn about every aspect of the ocean and our relationship to it. It’s amazing what this Gloucester institution does and how much of a difference your support makes. 40% of the proceeds from the money we raise with these classes goes directly to Maritime Gloucester and supporting their mission. It’s something we believe in and hope you do too.

Butterfly visit ~

Butterfly visit ~

The power of Meditation….

As we sit quietly, take a deep breath in, hold for a bit and then gently exhale, do this 3-5 times. Feel your body relax, now gently close your eyes and let your breath relax as well. Sit for as little as 5 minutes, it’s not so important on how long but how often. No matter where, time of day or length just “do” everyday and just maybe you too will have a butterfly come visit 💜

We leave you with this quote:

“Live does not happen to us, it is only responding to us” 💕

“Blockage is disease/Flow is health”
