Q & A with Maine Small Business and Yogi Jessica Petrie of Yoga Next Door | North Yarmouth Maine Photographer

  1. Jessica Petrie owner of Yoga Next Door. Grew up in Freeport.  Mom of three boys.  Moved away to California & MA after attending college at Bates and returned six years ago to raise a family in the woods, mountains and oceans of Maine.  Yoga, outdoor and Maine enthusiast.

  2. Yoga classes and private sessions happen in the serene hOMe yoga studio attached to our house, surrounded by woods in North Yarmouth. Since it’s a hOMe yoga studio, I am able to offer onsite childcare four classes a week. In the summer I offerer weekend-long yoga retreats and yoga classes at Bustins Island in Casco Bay Maine.

  3. Yoga Next Door opened the Spring of 2018. I have been practicing yoga for 20 years.
  4. Follow your intuition, passions and take risks. If you build it they will come…to the woods of North Yarmouth! This business has evolved from hard work, my passion for sharing yoga with others, following my intuition and taking risks along the way.
  5. I trained with Katie O’Connell in the mountains of NH; who has created an amazing yoga studio, retreat center and training program off the beaten path. She inspired me to offer yoga off the beaten path here in Maine.
  6. Being creative, engaging & creating community with my neighbors & community, helping students of all ages and; levels access the benefits of yoga, being hOMe for my boys.
  7. See above “advice/wisdom.” More on background – When I finished my teacher training I began teaching in our living room, fall 2018 we moved to the 4 season porch with 6 students at a time, summer 2018 we expanded the porch turning it into a full studio.

  10. Warmth, creativity and how comfortable she makes people – it’s a very relaxed dynamic.
  11. Yoga Next Door is truly an ALL LEVELS Yoga Studio.  I offer Beginner/Gentle Vinyasa Yoga to Slow Flow Vinyasa to more heat-building Vinyasa Flow classes.  I am excited to be adding new Chair Vinyasa class and Yin Yoga class (to be taught by Meghan MacDonald) in 2020. All the classes at YND offer breathwork, stretching, strengthening, meditation and a touch of yoga philosophy.  I love that YND is a place that my neighbors and the community can come to Invest in Rest and Self Care.  The twice monthly Restorative Yoga classes often sell out; Reiki Master Meghan will be providing energy work in these classes in 2020. As a mom, I love that I am able to provide onsite childcare 4 classes a week, something I needed but did not have access to when my boys were babies and toddlers.
