About the Teacher

Heather has been teaching yoga since 1991. Her love affair with yoga began at the age of 19 in the Iyengar method, with its strong focus on alignment and keen attention to detail. While traveling throughout India in her late twenties she began to explore the multiple branches of yogic philosophy. Her practice today is influenced by Tantric philosophy as she finds inspiration through communing with nature, parenting, poetry, and dance.

With extensive training in massage therapy and therapeutic yoga Heather designs her classes to create an experience that will enhance each individualīs health and well-being through careful sequencing and hands-on adjustments. She teaches an alignment based class, with breath awareness and ease of movement. Her teaching encourages a practice of deep listening and trusting in oneīs own innate wisdom and unique beauty.

“Spending time with Heather is a gift to oneself. Her depth and breadth of experience and her commitment to offering her students her best make a yoga class with her a wonderful journey of surprises. She can summon bits and pieces from her many yogic journeys to transport her students on their own journey. I think of her classes as artistic expressions created by a master – serious fun for sure"

Steve Scharf – still a beginner after 30 years of yoga

"I love, love, love Heather´s classes - they are always different, always informative and when we rise from Savasana I feel refreshed and sometimes just float out of the room. As a Yoga teacher myself, it can be difficult attending someone else´s classes, but Heather is so good at what she does, I can forget my studies and just enjoy the activity of my body and mind. Her ability to read the room and the students bodies is always astounding. Each class feels like it was personalized just for me - even tho´ there are 12 other students in the room - that´s what makes a yoga teacher great and not just good - and Heather is a great teacher!"
