YOGA with HEATHER MURRAY

BAR HARBOR, MAINE and BEYOND

My background:

My first yoga experience was as a young girl attempting to imitate my grandmother, a devoted yogi. But it was not until I became an adult and developed a passion for rock climbing that I turned to yoga in earnest—first as a way to find balance and to achieve a greater level of flexibility. This exclusively physical exploration of yoga evolved into a deep practice that is now a tool for learning about life; one that I am grateful to experience alongside my students.

I have been teaching yoga since 2007. Starting as a student of Iyengar and Ashtanga, my 200 hour teacher training was with Shiva Rea and has also included intensive study with many other wonderful teachers including Schuyler Grant, Tiffany Cruickshank, and many more. Starting in 2020, I dove into bhakti yoga to learn the Hanuman Chalisa and have been training in the heart expanding practice of kirtan with the Bhakti Yoga Shala. These trainings have provided an eclectic and deep skill set that informs the classes I teach today.

My attention to alignment detail and an appreciation for more subtle aspects of the practice such as pranayama (breath work), meditation and the bandhas (energetic locks) to name a few — help me create rich and varied experiences for my students. My yoga classes are well-crafted, educational, sometimes sweaty and spiritual journeys for students with a sense of adventure who are not afraid to work or to look more deeply at themselves—and to laugh along the way.
