Best Yoga Instructor

Heidi Junkersfeld

Readers' Pick

We’re guessing that Heidi Junkersfeld is Missoula’s new favorite yoga instructor because she adds a dash of South American flavor to the traditional Ashtanga yoga practice born thousands of years ago in India. Not only do her students learn fundamental practice principles like deep guttural breathing, sun salutation, and downward dog, but Junkersfeld also pushes her charges to move their hips by incorporating circle, salsa, and meringue dance into her classes. Junkersfeld also gets around—she teaches yoga at the Women’s Club, Lifelong Learning Center, University of Montana, and the Yoga Fitness Center, and also spends time as a massage therapist and a founding member of the OpenField Artist Collective. Whew. That’s enough to earn her a little downtime in child’s pose. Heidi Junkersfeld, Women’s Club: 2105 Bow St.; 728-4410;
