Yoga with Heenal

My Philosophy

I believe that yoga should be a well rounded practice looking at the body, mind, breath and soul. This practice should nourish us and challenge us. It is my intention that each class leave us feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and reconnected to ourselves and to our community.

Body – we practice yoga asana with a sense of strength and safety to allow us to feel better and more at ease.

Mind – we practice observing our thoughts and taking our attention away into our body and our breath to facilitate relaxation.

Breath – without due attention to our breath, we may as well be practicing gymnastics. Breathing well will help you get deeper into asana and go a long way to calming your mind.

Soul – yoga translates as attuning or yoking or union. This practice reconnects you to yourself, your heart and ultimately the 'God' you choose – religious, spiritual, or otherwise.

Seva - Related to the soul of the practice, Seva is a key part of yoga for me. Seva translates as service, heartfelt giving.

Yoga helps us become calmer, more aware and more empathetic towards other beings. It is through this that I would like to give back to the community and the world.

Twice a year all proceeds from the class go to help two charities close to my heart. Find your Feet and Yogi Ashokananda Foundation.

It's important to me that I support those close to home too. I offer discounted classes to those students who would not be able to access yoga otherwise. Please contact me for further details.
