ORONO- It’s called the “Climbing and Hopping Adventure,” combining different types of exercise both indoors and out before the cold weather comes in. And of course, after a full day of activity, you will need to relax with a cold beer.
“I think it’s important to get people active, to bring them together with people they’ve never met before,” said Holly Twining, the founder of Maine Yoga Adventures.
What better way to spend your Saturday than over 30 feet in the air, followed by adventuring on a grounds course, and then relaxing with a cold drink?
“We start climbing, then we take it outside to a challenge course, and then we come to a beautiful residence for yoga and food, and then we end the adventure at Orono brewing company for a beer tasting,” said Twining.
Aside from getting people active and bringing people together, Maine Yoga Adventure has other focuses as well. One is pushing people outside of their comfort zone, even when you’re the one who organizes the event.
“I’m a little nervous, but I’m feeling okay. I don’t know how high I’ll go but I’m going to give it a try. And it’s great because many of the people who have signed up for this adventure have never climbed before,” said Twining.
Another goal is familiarize people with their community.
“A big part of Maine Yoga Adventures is to get people to go to local businesses and use local businesses, to see what’s actually in their community that they’ve never tried before,” said Twining.
And in this case, Maine Bound Adventure Center is happy to get involved.
“We’ve got our 32 foot climbing wall, we’ve got our 12 foot bouldering wall, and this is just an awesome space. We’re open 7 days a week for anybody to just get out and climb,” said Lisa Carter, the assistant director of Maine Bound Adventure Center.
