- The Upanishads
Heather Eiden, ceramic artist, art educator and yoga instructor, offers a weekly beginning/intermediate Hatha Yoga class outdoors at Lynden each summer. Yoga, which means union, refers to the interconnection of mind, body and spirit. Yoga is an ongoing process of discovery, an evolving art, and a pathway to holistic health. Eiden focuses on mindfulness, centering and alignment as she leads students through asanas (physical postures), pranayama (control of the breath), and relaxation.
The class takes place outdoors (it will move into the art studio in inclement weather), so wear appropriate clothing and footwear (yoga socks) for outdoor practice and bring a mat. Some yoga experience required.
Heather Eiden has been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2004. She is a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance, and has studied at several places, including the Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Society in Rishikesh, India. She has offered a variety of yoga classes, including Beginning Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Prenatal Yoga and Yoga for Alignment, at the Wisconsin Athletic Club and the Solcare Wellness Center since 2005.
