Sanctuary Power Flow


This class is taught by:

Heather Rems Korwin

Owner - Sanctuary Power Yoga
My introduction to yoga came with practicing yoga with videotapes in my living room. After time, and with some prodding from a friend, I ventured into my first heated, power yoga class. I loved it. It was an experience unlike any other. Before that, I had been a dancer, a swimmer, a runner, a biker, a gym enthusiast. But after that first class, I knew yoga was it for me. Yoga means "union" & that is what I feel every time I get on my mat. My body, my breath, my mind, my spirit - all united. I feel whole & connected. Yoga has transformed me & the way I live my life. It seemed a natural progression for me, then, to become a teacher of yoga. To share what I love about this practice with others. And every time I teach, I learn more about myself. I have been teaching heated power yoga for more than 10 years & have been blessed to train, practice & work with many, many gifted & inspirational teachers. In March 2011, my family & I moved from the Boston area, back to Connecticut where I grew up. When the opportunity to open Sanctuary Power Yoga presented itself to me, it was literally a dream come true. I am thrilled to be able to bring this type of yoga to the area & to be able to create sacred space where people can come together to practice & share their time & energy. Whether you are a seasoned yogi or have never tried yoga before, I personally invite you to join me for a class at Sanctuary Power Yoga. To breathe, sweat & experience transformation for yourself.

I first began practicing yoga as a compliment to my dance training during my late teens - it was a much needed balance for me, living the life of a competitive dancer. Later on in my life, I practiced on and off when I could find the time, while juggling married life & motherhood. Like many of us do, I began to put everyone else's needs before my own & pretty quickly I felt my life taking on an imbalanced quality. After the birth of our 3rd child, I began to practice yoga daily, right in my living room. Soon, I realized that I could have a much deeper awareness and understanding of myself from the inside out through my yoga practice. There was less emphasis on how I looked or performed physically, and a greater emphasis on how I was feeling mentally and emotionally. I decided to take my journey from inside my living room, into the yoga community at Sanctuary Power Yoga. After my first class with Heather, I was hooked and within 6 months I decided to commit to Sanctuary's 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Being guided through this Yoga Teacher Training was by far one of the greatest experiences of my life! The support & guidance allowed me to take the risks I had been too afraid to take for much of my life. Most of all, speaking in front of a group of people and believing at the same time that what I have to offer is unique, full of value & worthwhile to others! I am joyfully committed to growing as a student and as a teacher of yoga. I look forward to making a connection with the Sanctuary Power Yoga community!

My introduction to yoga began in college.  I liked practicing but something was amiss.  Either the style was working but the instructor wasn't, or the instructor was fantastic but I failed to connect with the practice.  In 2011, after battling with personal turmoil and upset, a friend of mine suggested (strongly) that I should try going back to yoga and try heated Power Yoga.  I did, and was instantly hooked!  The practice moved quickly enough and was challenging enough to keep my attention, but at the same time it was soothing and nurturing.  Not long after my first heated class, I made the decision that yoga was going to be a permanent element in my lifestyle.  As my practice became more consistent, anger lifted, frustration subsided, and things just seemed to make sense.  Life got easier.  I became a teacher so that I may be able to assist others in healing, because, really, all you have to do is breathe.

I began practicing yoga regularly in 2013. After having my second child, I was sleep deprived, not feeling great about my body, & having a hard time managing my anxiety. I knew yoga was a great physical workout, but I had also heard of it's other benefits - reducing stress, helping with anxiety, and... it was QUIET. So I would practice to YouTube videos in my woodstove room while my little one napped and my older child played. As I began other forms of exercise at home, I continued to practice yoga & wanted to try going to studio. I found Sanctuary Power Yoga & I loved my first class! As I began practicing more & integrating more yoga into my life, I noticed life was getting easier & I began feeling more content. Now, my practice is a part of my life for which I am quite grateful. I decided to become a yoga teacher to share my love of this practice with others.

I've always dabbled in different styles of yoga, taking a class here and there, until I was in college & found myself struggling. Yoga then became the only constant for me & the place I would retreat to, time & time again. Since then, I haven't been able to get enough of it. My practice has taught me, & continues to teach me, that there is only this moment & this breath. To always come back to my breath, on & off my mat, & to lean on it for support. To me, yoga is about finding the power within & allowing it to guide you.

Yoga holds a special place in my heart. For a long time, any sort of physical activity was really something I just never wanted a part of. After I graduated High School, I had no drivers license, no plans for college & no job. For about a year I stayed home alone - I developed anxiety, to the point where leaving my house was actually frightening to me. I became very depressed and gained weight. One day I decided that I had to do something, and began researching physical activities I could do without leaving my house. I stumbled onto yoga and I began practicing in my room, with a towel as a mat. Not only did yoga help me get back in physical shape, but it also helped with my anxiety. I started to slowly creep out of my room and back into the world. Within months I had my drivers license & started college. I am now living and loving life - finding passion I never had before and practicing yoga! Yoga has inspired me to teach & I hope to share the gifts yoga has given me with others.
