The Maine Yoga Network was founded in 2018 with the mission to connect everyone in Maine who practices yoga, making it easy to find a class, teacher, or workshop. Our goal is to help teachers and studios fill their classes and workshops, while helping students stay connected with what’s going on in their area.
We use the Maine Yoga Event Calendar, Maine Yoga Newsletter, and the Maine Yoga Directory to help achieve that goal. In the future, we hope to coordinate live events where yoga teachers can network and brainstorm, continuing to strengthen the community and presence of yoga in Maine.
The Island Institute is proud to support small businesses and entrepreneurs along the coast of Maine, including seed money for this network. The Island Institute is a non-profit that works to sustain Maine’s island and coastal communities, and exchanges ideas and experiences to further the sustainability of communities here and elsewhere.
Hi, I’m Samantha Williams, the founder of Maine Yoga Network. Over the years of practicing and teaching yoga, I noticed that most yoga teachers and studios just want to teach, and could use some help getting the word out about what they have to offer. I would often hear people say “I wish I had know about that,” when I was talking about a recent event or workshop I attended. My hope with the Maine Yoga Network is that we can all grow together; making it easier for students to find classes, and teachers to find the visibility they need to fill their classes and events. Yoga is a life-changing practice; and I’m honored to help more people discover it!
