Heather

I do a lot of yoga and have had a lot of teachers. But heather puts them all to shame. I truly enjoy here classes because she pushed you. And just when you don't think you can go anymore somehow you find the inner strength to go beyond the burn.

Knowledgeable, generous and empowering

I have taken Heather's power vinyasa and restorative yoga classes and both are wonderful experiences. Her vinyasa sequences are thoughtfully prepared and build througout the class. Her thorough warm-up allows for a full expression of each pose and her pacing is just perfect. Heather's teaching style is encouraging and empowering, open and compassionate. She inspires her students to work to their full potential but also to feel comfortable resting and modifying poses when necessary.

In Heather's restorative class, she creates a blissful meditative experience that draws on yogic philosophy and uses props in creative ways for a deeply-felt restful experience. As a long-time dancer and yogi, Heather has a deep understanding of how the body works and she guides her students safely through class with clear body and weight placement instructions. Heather is just a fantastic teacher and offers an energizing, fun and inspiring class with positive vibes all around.

She's got her finger on the pulse in life. Students are lucky to have her!

Yogi-Exceptionaire!!

I love Heather- her technique and style are adaptable and motivating to experienced as well as seasoned yogis! She leads and teaches my staff every Wednesday through a 15 minute yoga class that we broadcast live on facebook and Heather is amazing on camera and on the yoga mat! Friendly, motivational and challenging... always a favorite in my book of yogis!
