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 spent time exploring many different styles and practices of yoga & the traditions of a yoga lifestyle. I began practicing yoga regularly in 2008 & fell in love with Vinyasa Flow (Power) yoga. I am passionate about teaching students to link breath and movement - to immerse themselves in breath & be in the present moment, to let go and connect body, mind and spirit while moving through a physical practice. I strive to create a class & space that allows students the opportunity to open their mind & trust their intuition - exploring what breath and body can create on the mat which leads to coloring outside the lines off the mat..taking their practice into their everyday life.

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.

The human body is the most versatile & beautiful tool that any and all of us have at our disposal, & I have found no better way to explore the potential & infinite possibilities presented by that tool than through the practice of yoga. While I have engaged in a physical practice of one sort or another consistently over the last ten years, my practice of yoga has really begun to deepen & broaden in the last couple of years. I realized at a certain point that I was making many demands of my body without taking any time to celebrate it. When I am on my mat, there is an underlying sense of celebration - for my body, which allows me to practice - for my breath, which renews and supports me - for my mind, which spurs my curiosity - & finally, a celebration of the opportunity to integrate and synchronize all three through yoga. To be able to teach & to share in that celebration with others, wherever they are in their journey, is both an honor and a privilege.

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!

I took my first yoga class while in college as a dance major 16 years ago. From there, I would periodically come back to a regular practice until it became a part of my everyday life. Yoga has helped me find peace through challenging times, learn to let go of things outside of myself, & how to more deeply love myself & those in my life. Having a dance & athletic background, naturally I was attracted to the physicality of a yoga practice & discovered that heated power yoga, in particular, afforded my body the physical challenges I was hoping to achieve. Yoga, being a practice, means that there is always room to grow & evolve which is, in my opinion, one of the most thrilling aspects of life.
I wanted to be more confident & to share these amazing new tools with others in the hopes that in some small way I could help make the world a better place. That is when I decided to make "maybe I can be a yoga teacher" into a reality, deepening my own understanding and practice as well as having the opportunity to share that love and knowledge with my 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.
Our signature class. An energizing flow that connects you to your power. A full body workout, meditation in motion. Be ready to breathe...sweat...and experience transformation! Open to students of all levels.
