Warrior of the Week: Morgan Herkert

Meet Morgan Herkert our Feb. 25 Warrior of the Week. Morgan is the example of balance between power and softness. A mom of 2, registered nurse, fitness trainer and accomplished competitor, Morgan is a recent graduate of our Power Yoga Academy. She has a huge heart and is ready to share the love with her family and with her Flux community! We are excited to name her our #FluxWOW this week. 

How long have you been practicing at Flux Power Yoga? How did you know this was your place?

Since March of 2018 I started coming to Flux.  I was hooked from my very first class.  As a fitness enthusiast, I love a great workout, but Flux offers so much more than the physicality perks.  Every class is different.  No two classes are the same.  I am all about the constant variety, COMMUNITY, and message that is portrayed during each class.  Sometimes the dialogue is so pertinent and needed in a way that it feels so specific to my life that I literally have had tears streaming down my face.  Flux is the full package!  This is my place and it feeds my soul!

How has your practiced evolved and /or what benefits have you gotten in your practice and in your life?

Flux has benefitted my life in so many ways.  I just recently obtained my RYT-200 through the teacher training program which has not only improved my overall practice, but has shown me how to transform my life with much needed balance.  I have never been happier and I am in such a great place in my life because of the tools I have learned along the way.  I plan to keep this party going!  I will participate in kids training this May as well as Baptiste level 1 certification in the fall.

Favorite pose and why?

That would be headstand.  This is one of my most challenging poses and it relates to my life in that it is always a work in progress.  I love how much endless possibility there is in this pose.

Any advice for new yogis?

I would tell a new yogi that everyone’s practice is their own and unique to them.  Learn from your own practice and intuition, recognize your strength and respond compassionately by saying, “you got this.”
