Dancing Elephant

"I can't think of a more perfect space for this community. Great teachers, great classes." Melanie, student

The Dancing Elephant invites you to our relaxed and friendly community center in the heart of downtown Rockland, Maine. We offer yoga and meditation classes, retreats, and special events. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced student, you’ll find a practice that’s right for you. Our inspiring teachers are delighted to offer you space to practice, learn, and grow. The Dancing Elephant is also home to Recovery Dharma, a peer-led recovery group founded on the Buddhist path of awakening. We are committed to making our programs accessible to everyone. All classes are by donation.

In addition to classes at the studio, we have worked in partnership with the Hospitality House, local libraries, the Zenith program, RSU #13, and Coastal Opportunities to bring yoga and meditation to the community.

See you soon!

Yoga is a way of life. Live it.
