Heidi Fricke

Heidi is the owner and founder of Simply Power Yoga. Heidi moved to Cincinnati in 2007 with her husband Ron and two children, Ronnie and Elisa. After leaving Corporate America in 2002, Heidi discovered a whole new way of living. Marathon running is what brought her to yoga but she soon realized yoga had so much more to offer than just a physical practice. Yoga became a huge part of her daily practice and life. Yoga became her passion.

Heidi has trained directly with Baron Baptiste and his group of Senior and Master Teachers. She is a 500 Hour Certified Baptiste Teacher. She has also assisted programs for Baptiste Yoga. Heidi completed a 100 hour Anusara Immersion with Sianna Sherman in 2010. During 2004-2006, she completed Level 1-4, Yoga for Seniors and Yoga Pre-natal with Beth Shaw. She has also trained directly with Desiree Rumbaugh, Rod Stryker, Bryan Kest and Ana Forrest.

“I have had the opportunity to train with world renowned teachers. However, I was always looking for more…..something was missing. Then I stumbled upon, Tami Schneider, owner of Cleveland Yoga. Tami encouraged me to go to my first Baptiste Bootcamp in 2007. In Baptiste Yoga I found simplicity, power and authenticity. For the first time in years, I was becoming present to my own life. At that moment, I knew I wanted to share my passion and joy of yoga with everyone.

Yoga has helped to heal many parts of my life. I teach a playful and challenging class which continually takes students to the edge and out of their comfort zones. I love to watch students unfold on the mats and find their breath. The greatest joy for me is to see the smile on a student's face after they have practiced."
