Heidi Marks was drawn to yoga, not just as a practice for physical rejuvenation and wellness, but as a vehicle to better understand how consciousness interacts with the physical world. Her motivation as a yoga teacher is to support students in their journey toward stress reduction, increased ease of movement, better health for happier ageing, and spiritual growth. Heidi is continuing her studies toward the 500-level, including advanced training in teaching meditation and pranayama, and she is totally intrigued by the power of mudras. In addition to being a yogi, she has degrees in chemistry and environmental design, is a food safety professional, a WA state registered Reflexologist, artist, and is a publisher of body|mind|spirit books. Heidi reports that studying the philosophy and practice of yoga at Ananda has provided her with a greater sense of calmness, balance and ability to hold non-attachment – she hopes that you will join her on that path, Friday evenings at 6:30 pm in the Yoga Hall (except 2nd Fridays).
