Mommy and Baby Yoga on Channel 6

Check out the Footage

We are excited to announce new footage from WCSH 6 of our very own Maura Hintlian and our Mommy and Baby Yoga Class. The report, by Kelly Labrecque for the Fit at Five series, focuses on what sets mommy and baby yoga apart from other workouts is that it is gentle, but still provides results. You get to involve and bond with your little one within the workout. For most new mothers getting their core back in shape is a big challenge. What better way to do it than with yoga.  Please click here to view the segment and be sure to come to our open house where Maura will be signing autographs while simultaneously performing the scooping ice cream pose.

Pingree Agrees with Benefits of Acupuncture

John's Inquiring Question

At a recent event sponsored by the Portland Regional Chamber. John Charlebois was given the opportunity ask an engaging question to Congresswoman Chellie Pingree.

Gentle Yoga

John questioned whether or not the state of Maine was investigating or planning any pilot programs that help reduce medical costs?  He referenced the study above, explaining that through cost and benefit analysis, traditional acupuncture has been shown to lower healthcare costs.  Currently State of Maine employees are eligible for these services.  However, if Maine is looking for widespread cost savings, why not make it more widely accessible to all?

Congresswoman Pingree gave a very positive response and agreed with the benefits of acupuncture. She has personally seen results and the effectiveness of acupuncture with others. For a detailed answer however, she redirected the question to her daughter Hannah Pingree, Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives.  We are in the process of following up with Hannah and will keep you updated.
