Teacher: Heather Fenwick
An invitation towards a deeper breath. A reminder to enjoy it.
Cultivate a more mindful practice, riding the movements of the body on the fluidity of the breath. Whether through a gentle, nourishing practice or a hot, sweat-filled flow class, when we infuse our postures with the breath, we reap the boundless rewards of a yoga practice–rewards that extend beyond the hour in the studio.
Heather Fenwick’s classes draw knowledge of physical alignment and effective, feel-good adjustments from Thai massage (Old Medicine Hospital, Chiang Mai, Thailand), Ayurveda (Somatheeram, Kerala, India), traditional yoga teacher training, and Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and Massage (PCOM).
Inspired by frequent sojourns to the Motherland and forty days’ worth of silent Buddhist meditation retreats, Heather presents her students with yoga-philosophy-nuggets they can use to cultivate a deeper practice and greater well-being. She balances the inspiring with the practical, the uplifting with the grounding, so that students may carry lightness and mindfulness with them as they leave their mats.
A “recovering gypsy”, Heather also leads annual retreats to India, Central America, as well as locally in Southern California. www.recoveringgypsy.com
Utthita Trikonasana. The triangle’s base is strength, the sides rise up with aspiration reaching the zenith, the pinnacle of mind and emotion. With strength and balance reach for your goals.
Savasana. Savasana is consciously letting go, actively surrendering to gravity; being pulled into back into earth. Allowing ourselves to melt into harmony with all.
