Heidi Sherwin is a caring and highly skilled yoga teacher registered with Yoga Alliance at the ERYT-200 and R-PYT levels. Heidi’s classes and personalized sessions provide a positive space where everyone can feel safe and empowered to breathe, move, explore, transform and grow. Her teaching style is sincere, cheerful and eclectic, blending the traditional alignment principles of Hatha Yoga with her love of creative movement, playful expression, and awakened breathing. Her interests in the therapeutic and spiritual aspects of yoga are also at the heart of her classes to kindle the union of postures, breathing, and mindfulness.

Personalized yoga sessions with Heidi Sherwin honor the unique and authentic individual, along with his or her personal goals and needs. Prior to each appointment, Heidi will consult with you to assess your particular needs and goals at that time. Then she will use that knowledge to develop an individualized, well-rounded yoga practice that includes asana (postures), breath work, and meditation. Each session will include a reference handout so the personalized practice can be continued at home. Personalized sessions can also include one additional person at no additional cost.

Since 1994, her yoga journey has yielded the most amazing experiences through an eclectic personal practice, self-discovery, studying with master teachers and mostly by celebrating in her students’ achievements. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2009 and Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher Certification in 2011, both recognized by the Yoga Alliance. Heidi’s passion and interest in women-centered wellness inspired her to start the BlissMama Yoga Program in 2011, which includes classes focusing on fertility, prenatal, postnatal and mama/baby yoga. She also serves as an Assistant Instructor for the 200-hour Teacher Training program at BlissBlissBliss in Morgantown, WV.

Heidi likes to take her yoga off the mat and into her world as a mother to three wonderful daughters, whom remind her daily that a joyful life exists in the NOW. Together with her husband, they seek and enjoy the simple pleasures of family-time, the great outdoors, and taking time to breathe.

Heidi is a True Yoga Goddess!

I met Heidi almost 3 years ago (if my math is correct) as a private yoga client. I had reached out to the local yoga studio recommended to me for a private yoga instructor and received 3 responses. Two of the teachers were friendly and interested, but Heidi was completely engaged with my request and offered a wonderful and inviting overview of the type of practice I might enjoy with her.


Of course, I picked Heidi and every private session I've had with her has been absolutely wonderful and inviting. As a private instructor, she is very thorough and has a practice outlined with a handout or other materials for me every time we meet. That being said, her practices are not rigid--she will modify at any time based on her intuitive feel of what I need or on my feedback. I also have some joint and back issues that make some yoga poses difficult, and Heidi has absolutely shone in terms of her willingness and ability to help me modify the poses or incorporate props. Very much appreciated as I started my yoga practice because I felt I was physically on the sidelines and to have to sit through poses would have been discouraging. I've also taken many of Heidi's group classes. Her restorative classes are FANTASTIC!!! The poses are wonderful, the sequencing is great, Heidi is very helpful with the props (making sure everyone is cozy), and she adds such wonderfully prepared quotes, insights, meditations, and mantras to the practice. Her voice is so soothing! Her more active classes are really just faster-paced extensions of the same, with each class having an engaging theme and a spiritual context that is there but never overwhelming or preachy--just very comforting and inspiring. If you'd like to spend an hour in pure love getting either a sweat or some relaxation on, check out Heidi's classes or private yoga services. And if you think you have limitations, she'll quickly have you amazed at all the things you CAN do, just in a different way.

A balanced, balancing teacher

Heidi is a teacher who takes a very balanced approach with an even blend of demonstrations and explanations. She has a gentle spirit with a great sense of humor that she uses to keep the class light-hearted while still grounded. I love her creative flows for pregnant yogi mamas. They are always just what I needed. :)

Best Prenatal Yoga

Heidi enriched my pregnancies with her weekly prenatal classes. We practiced how to breath, improve back pain and most importantly, connect with my baby. She is wonderful.

Heidi is a wonderful instructor. She makes every student feel comfortable regardless of their experience. Those who are new she will provide more feedback/instruction, but will encourage others to reach new limits. At the end of her class, I feel I have achieved my goals and am relaxed and peaceful. She's truly a gifted teacher.

Wonderful place of peace for mamas to be

Heidi teaches a fabulous prenatal yoga class, which is the perfect balance of serenity, peace and practice. I don't feel like I am just on the mat stretching for an hour, but never feel like I am being pushed. Heidi also creates a great space for all mamas to be to socialize and be happy and pregnant together. It is a wonderful part of my week!

Best Yogi Ever

Heidi is an amazing yogi. My weight was never an issue in any of her classes! She always offers alternative poses. I would have never gotten through my daughter's birth if not for Heidi's birthing class and prenatal yoga. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful practitioner in my life.
