    Heather began her yoga journey several years back when tension and long hours at a desk job started making her body stiff and cranky. Turning to yoga as a sustainable way to reverse that trend, she was amazed at how much better she felt physically, emotionally and spiritually. Compelled to share this with others, she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2010. She has since done training in Yin Yoga, Yoga 4 Kids, Partner Yoga and mat Pilates. Heather finds yoga allows her to feel stronger and calmer and she strives to provide classes that are approachable yet challenging; energizing but relaxing.  She is grateful to the many wonderful instructors and students that she has the opportunity to practice with.
