Holly Twining, Founder
Holly began her own exciting creation Maine Yoga Adventures after ten years with Maine Audubon as a naturalist and communications coordinator. Started in July of 2015, Maine Yoga Adventures brings community together thru adventures that are statewide and are beginning to expand outside Maine's borders.
Prior to Maine, Holly lived in New York City as a performer. She was the artistic director of delicious biscuit and performer for experimental theatre pioneer Richard Foreman and performance artist Penny Arcade. After obtaining an Interdisciplinary Master’s Degree focusing on environmental ethics and literature at New York University, she moved to Orono, Maine. Holly started working at Fields Pond Audubon Center and in 2011 became a Certified Yoga Teacher through the Namaste Institute training program.
Holly teaches a wide variety of yoga classes at Om Land Yoga studios from aerial and chair yoga to vinyasa flow and intermediate. She teaches the younger set in Mantis Yoga for Kids classes and is a certified foundations instructor thru Color Me Yoga. Holly also trained in Unnata Aerial Yoga with Michelle Dortignac. Her experience also includes paddleboard yoga & acro yoga. Holly has a yoga tv spot with ABC 7/Fox Bangor to highlight upcoming adventures and introduce viewers to different aspects of yoga.
Holly lives with her family in Orono, two sweet boys Augi and Zane & Travis Baker, an award winning playwright. Somehow she still finds time to play tennis on a competitive 3.5 team and loves it!
