We are all on a journey, we all have struggles and triumphs and they don’t always come easily or quickly. Sometimes, we find ourselves sludging through this phase for a session of our life. We can look at other people, business owners, celebrities and feel like they have it all figured out and place them on a pedestal.
In this week’s episode of the Catalyst Community Connections Podcast, our guest for this episode is Heather Falkin, owner of Sangha Yoga, located in the Seattle neighborhood of Queen Anne. In our conversation, we talk about her journey from a place of being unsure, looking for guidance and routine to the place she is today. Heather has experienced struggle in the past and continues to work through hurdles today just like each and every one of does.
The lessons she has learned from those struggles and triumphs have helped her find her path, routine and balance in her life. Be it her weekly meanderings through the woods in Seattle, or onto her mat to remember who she is.
Her practice magically transports her back to a space of receptivity, self-reflection, and stillness. For the last 20 years, she has dedicated herself to understanding how the dynamic practices and teachings of the yogic tradition transform us and unite us.
At Sangha Yoga, Heather seeks to merge the old school and the new school approaches to guide students to a sacred place within themselves. Heather’s classes are rooted in the eight limbs of yoga, Vedic tradition, Hindu mythology, Buddism and the lessons. Her classes are physically invigorating, mentally clarifying, spiritually awakening and fun. Teaching from her heart to support the needs of the students in the room is her highest goal and she feels that her continued self-study and growth are key in reaching it.
When not teaching, practicing yoga, and tending to Sangha Yoga, Heather can be found tending to her family. She takes time for herself in the form of reading, walking her dogs and SUP’ing on the sound. Her soul is nourished when in the mountains, close to the ocean, traveling, and listening to music.
