If it has to do with snow and winter activities, you can bet that someone in Maine would have discovered it. The newest craze is SNOGA — yoga in that fluffy white stuff we call snow.
I first heard of SNOGA through an article in the Bangor Daily News. It was invented (I suppose) by Holly Twinning of Maine Yoga Adventures. Yoga is done with some modifications — no poses lying down, and sometimes the use of snowshoes to help with balance. (However, the extra weight of snowshoes can also hinder balance-keeping on some poses). I have to admit, I’ve never thought about doing a headstand with my head buried in snow, but it strangely appeals to me.
Maine Yoga Adventures is located in Orono, Maine (about a two hour drive from Machias). Looking at their website, they offer amazing adventures, not just all over Maine, but all over the world:
