Certified Yoga Instructor
Heidi has been practicing yoga since 2006. She has always been physically active and at the same time always sought a sense of connection and wholeness through spiritual and meditative practices. She found the perfect combination of these aspects of health and wellness in Yoga. Heidi has her Master’s Degree in Social Work and originally worked with adolescents with substance abuse issues. As her children have grown and become more independent, Heidi has had time to focus more thoroughly on her yoga practice. It was like coming home, as she feels the trajectory of yoga for her has been a lifelong process of reconnecting to her true self and purpose. It seemed a natural progression to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training enabling her to share the healing and growth she has found through yoga with others.
Heidi’s teaching style emphasizes healthy alignment as it applies to each individual. She focusses on connecting to and working with the breath and body enabling one to be fully present in one’s yoga (and life) in a mindful way. She places great importance on enabling students to take ownership of their yoga practice in a way that is right for each student beginning with a sense of acceptance and love.
