Maggie Heinzel-Neel


The grounded peaceful feeling

that Maggie receives from practicing yoga asana (poses)

and pranayama (breath work),

as well as the empowerment

from becoming strong and

flexible, is at the core of her teaching that she shares with students of all levels.

Maggie combines a wide range

of experiences; a dynamic

physical workout with precise alignment instructions, focus

on breath within the poses and

in pranayama, spiritual reflection, transpersonal psychology (directed inward work) and time at the beginning and end of each class

for quiet contemplation that

leads to a deeper meditative experience.


Maggie’s prime focus on the

breath, throughout the entire

class, provides a cleansing from

the inside out.  Her teachings

are an equal part of challenge

and nurture, a balance of

feminine and masculine. As the breath, heart and body all work

together, she leads her students

to a deep feeling of connection

and wholeness that helps to stay focused and quiet the mind.
