Each of our teachers brings their own unique blend of experience, focus, and personality to class.
Heather L. Ash, LMT, RYT
The only way to do yoga “wrong” is to not do yoga. In all of the disciplines she practices or teaches, Heather encourages her students and clients to use meditation, yoga, and bodywork to find their own inner wisdom, inner healer. Sometimes a teacher is needed to be the compass that points you in the direction of your path. Together we will use breath and stillness to open our hearts and minds to whatever may be there and find the peace needed to move through life gracefully and with more compassion. Heather is 200-hour certified in Yin yoga, Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yoga Therapy. She is also Reiki II certified and a licensed Massage Therapist.
Yin Yoga class:
Wednesdays at 5:30 – 7pm
Yin yoga is a mindful yoga practice that hearkens back to this original intention of preparing the body for seated meditation. In Yin we will use lots of floor work with long holds to target specific chinese meridians, chakras and joint structures in order to unblock energetic stuckness, unwind physical knots, and create more ease and comfort for long work days at a desk or your other exercise routines. This is a balancing practice that addresses our inability to truly relax even when curled up on the couch watching TV. This class is friendly to beginners through advanced practitioners as you only go as deeply into a pose as your gravity and your body allows.
Donna Haeyvert-Certified Yoga Instructor.
Yoga is the balance of breath and movement. Whenever you use your breath consciously with acute awareness of body, then you are practicing yoga. And by practicing yoga, you become in the moment. The more you practice being in the moment, the more you appreciate where you are right now. Not where you were 5 minutes or 5 years ago or where you want to be in 5 minutes or 5 years, but where you are right now. It is an amazing place to be.
I have been certified in Hatha Freestyle yoga and sequence towards joint mobility and flow of movement. Whereas my style would not be considered extreme yoga, it is challenging with the goal of bringing you into the moment. Where you and your breath are your only focus.
