Since her first Sun Salutation in September 2001, Heather has experienced tremendous benefits from yoga — physically, mentally and spiritually. She has a deep desire to help others experience the same benefits from yoga and is excited to spread her knowledge and passion for the practice with her students.
“I have aspired to open a yoga studio for years and my yoga practice helped me make my dream a reality. In 2013 I completed Ally Ford’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program. This provided me with a deeper understanding of yoga and helped me develop a personal daily practice.”
Heather is a Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT) through the Yoga Alliance, the industry standard in yoga certification. She has practiced with instructors at studios all over the world, including: Champaign-Urbana, IL; Scottsdale, Tempe and Phoenix, AZ; San Diego, CA; Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada; Shreveport-Bossier City, LA; Dallas, TX; Turks & Caicos; Miami, FL; Grand Cayman Island; and the Dominican Republic.
She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Leisure Studies with an emphasis in Sport Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2002. She has taught group fitness classes and was previously certified as an American Council on Exercise (ACE) personal trainer.
