    "Practice makes perfect" is an early childhood maxim taught to assure future possible success in the adult world. Yoga philosophy teaches us that there is no perfection!

    Having a yoga practice for over 50 years has helped Paula understand the paradoxes that arise in life and that responding appropriately to any given situation creates the sought after balance and strength attained through a yoga practice, which she now refers to respectfully as "the practice of yoga."

    Paula will attempt to offer a different filter allowing us to evaluate and empower our efforts by sharing the maxim that has evolved for her: "A purposeful practice perfects."

    Get a sneak peek at Paula's approach in her book, Yoga and You for a Year: From the Beginning ... to the End.

    You will need a yoga mat, two blocks, and a cushion or blanket to sit on.

    A recording will be made available temporarily to all registrants.

    Paula Heitzner, E-RYT 500, began her yoga training with Richard Hittleman of TV fame; Elizabeth Spohn, a devotee of Swami Rama; and Blanche DeVries, wife of “The Great Om,” Pierre Bernard. She continued her studies with Mr. Iyengar, Swami Muktananda, and Vishnudevananda. Kripalu has awarded her an expert lifetime certification. Her classes are a synergy of East and West, as she has explored the western body-mind concepts of Reichian work, bioenergetics, the Feldenkrais Method, ideokinesis, polarity therapy, and continuum. Paula is also a dance therapist.
