Heather fell in love with yoga in 1997, when she began to study with an Indian yogi teaching traditional Raja Yoga at a tiny local Unitarian church. Yoga has transformed Heather’s life over and over again, and she teaches because she loves helping her students find that transformative experience for themselves. She believes that one of her primary goals as a yoga teacher is to help her students learn to develop the awareness and stillness necessary to hear the wisdom of the most important teacher of all, the teacher within.
Heather teaches mindful, alignment based slow flow Vinyasa, Restorative Yoga, and Pranayama. While she loves a powerful Vinyasa class, she really values the healing benefits of Restoratives. As a practicing environmental law attorney, Restorative Yoga has helped her immensely in countering the harmful effects of stress from daily life.
Heather completed her 200-hour teacher training in 2013. Since that time she has taken workshops and trainings with teachers such as Judith Lasater, Jason Crandell, Sadie Nardini, and Leslie Kaminoff. She is currently enrolled in an advanced 300-hour Teacher Training and a Pranayama Teacher Training at Yoga on High in Columbus, Ohio, where she has the privilege to study with the incredible YoHi teachers and with yoga luminaries such as Richard Freeman, Rodney Yee, Ray Long, Kino MacGregor, and many others. Heather’s personal practice includes Ashtanga Yoga and Sanskrit studies with Zoe Mai.
Heather loves the energy and the sound of summer rain and the wind blowing through the trees. She loves silence, and hiking, and anything to do with the outdoors. Heather would like nothing more than to one day travel around the country in a motorhome for months on end with her husband and cats.
