YOGA with HEATHER MURRAY
BAR HARBOR, MAINE
Scroll Down For Outdoor & Online Yoga Information
Whether a local or a visitor, if you're looking for yoga in Bar Harbor, please consider joining me at my studio, Eden Yoga Shala, for weekly classes on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings, and for workshops once a month on Wednesday evenings. I also teach a summertime-only weekly yoga class on Wednesday mornings at the Causeway Club in Southwest Harbor.
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 teacher training has included Shiva Rea's Prana Flow Vinyasa, as well as intensive study with many other wonderful teachers including Schuyler Grant, Tiffany Cruickshank, Seane Corn, Kathryn Budig, and Rod Stryker. This training has 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) — help me create rich and varied experiences for my students. My yoga classes are well-crafted, educational, 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.
