Welcome Eric to the Om Land Portland Family!  

Eric Newton’s yoga practice, beginning in 2004, is an ongoing exploration into the development of health and prana. What began as a way to blow off steam and explore physical possibilities has evolved into a comprehensive, continually growing practice. Eric is very grateful to be standing on the shoulders of the teachers that came before him. He has been influenced by the teachings of Ame Wren, Jacqui Bonwell, Terry Lacey, as well as those of his fellow teachers at Greener Postures and other Portland studios. He also draws from studying the literature of B.K.S. Iyengar, Mark Stephens, Doug Keller, Ray Long, Sage Rountree, and Deepak Chopra.

Expect a healthy balance of dynamic flow, alignment, breath work, and internal focus when you practice with Eric. He believes active participation in a well-rounded practice lightens the load of unnecessary burdens and increases self-awareness. Self-awareness can manifest in your body as improved health, in your breath as ease and comfort, and in your mind as balance between calm and alert. Come with an open mind and the willingness to work and play. Expect change and challenge.

Janet Scully Joins the Om Land Yoga Family with Basics on Thursdays in Bangor  

Please join us in welcoming Janet Scully to the Om Land Yoga Family.

Janet took yoga classes here and there for years before she began to seriously focus on her practice in 2014 and started taking classes 2 and 3 times a week. Her love of yoga grew and she discovered that practicing yoga was the perfect balance to her running.

Janet enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training at Om Land Yoga in 2016, not intending to teach, but wanting to deepen her own practice and knowledge of yoga. Little did she know how transformational Yoga Teacher Training would be! It didn’t take long to realize she loved the teaching aspect as much as she loved yoga and started her journey into teaching.

Janet is originally from Chicago and traveled around for some years while in the Army before moving to Maine 2000 where she lives with her husband Joe and their superstar Maine Coon cat, Moose. Janet is very excited to be teaching yoga at Om Land and sharing her love of yoga with others!

Starting March 29th, Janet will be teaching a Basics class, Thursdays, 4:00 – 5:00 in our Bangor Studio.
