Teacher Feature ~ Jim Hey

Jim teaches Warm Slow Flow every Saturday at 10:15. 

Favorite pose?


Half pigeon.  It's an amazing pose to let go and relax.  If you hold the pose long enough, your entire body and mind releases.

First introduced to yoga?

On a whim, I dropped into a class at a local gym.  After the first clas, I went up and hugged the teacher.

10 words or less on why you love yoga.

The feeling I have after a practice.

How does your practice make you stronger?

My practice has taught me how to relax my mind and focus, reducing stress and making me stronger.

How do you remain grounded outside the yoga studio?

I work at reducing external stress as much as possible.  The biggest change I've made towards this is to avoid violence in movies and TV.  I seldom watch the news.

Any advice to the beginner yogi?

Listen to your body.  Do what feels right and don't give up.

Favorite mantra or intention?

I am good.  I am peaceful and at ease.  I am happy.

Biggest misconception about being a yoga instructor?

That I am calm and in control.  Both take continuous work.

Name one healthy food that you swear by:

Avocados.  I love the way they taste.
