Heather Eiden, ceramic artist, art educator and yoga instructor, has been offering a weekly beginning/intermediate Hatha Yoga class at Lynden all summer. Now that the season for outdoor yoga is over, we invite you indoors for a series of monthly yoga workshops focusing on the seven chakras, or energy centers. This series of workshops that will explore the energy system of the human body through yoga poses, Vinyasa flow (connected poses) and essential oils. And in the spirit of Lynden, they will integrate some artmaking through Mandala design.
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.
