EDWARDS — Local yoga instructors Bobby L’Heureux and Kim Fuller are leading a vigorous and introspective two-hour workshop, The Movement Mirror, on Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. at Dogma Athletica in Edwards.
“This is a program that Kim and I designed together,” L’Heureux said. “I taught it by myself once and it was missing something. So now we’re bringing in both spectrums — the female and male, the yin and yang — and we’re going even deeper into The Movement Mirror.”
The workshop will be a power flow-based yoga practice, with personal development tools weaved in throughout. The sequence and instruction will create awareness around how the physical and mental work can be a direct reflection of life’s breakdowns and breakthroughs.
“So things that come up on your mat — whether it’s a fear or an accomplishment — help you see how you deal with things in your everyday life,” L’Heureux said. “Students can expect to face adversity and also to experience preserving and overcoming things.”
The class is designed to help students dive into self-inquiry amidst deep pose holds, strong arm balances and inversions and will give students takeaways for further development on and off of their mats.
‘CREATE AWARENESS AND SPACE’
“The Movement Mirror teaches how to create awareness and space for self-reflection and intentional action,” Fuller said, “which give students tools to make their life choices come from a foundation of empowerment.”
This will be L’heureux and Fuller’s first workshop at Dogma. Owner Rod Connolly said there’s a “wonderful synergy” between the Dogma Athletica vision and tenets, and L’heureux and Fuller’s teachings.
“The physical nature of their individual and combined teaching style is intensive yet supportive,” Connelly said. “It brings the students to a place where they can’t be anywhere but fully present in that moment. Participants will experience breakthroughs and empowerment with this combination of physicality and mindfulness. I’m very excited to help bring this to our community.”
The options vary in size, cost and modernity from up-valley to down-valley.
