Heather is a native Californian; growing up in Manhattan Beach, she was always active as a child with dance, volleyball, swimming, and those monthly family surf trips. Camping up and down the coast, she was most comfortable in these natural settings, just going with the flow. Her parents encouraged her free spirit. After college, she pursued a creative career in the fashion industry. In 2006, after 4-years at the helm, she found herself yearning to get back to her roots and gain an outlet from her fast pace life. That's when a friend suggested yoga.
A year of yoga practice, and Heather had once again found her flow The positive physical, mental, and spiritual effects of her practice lead her to becoming a teacher. The gift of self awareness that her teachers shared is the most vital aspect of her yoga journey, and the most cherished. In 2007, Heather became a certified teacher through the Mukti Teacher Training School with Julie Rader. The practice of yoga transformed Heather's life and allowed her to achieve her goals of balance, strength, and tranquility (no seriously, she's really cool.)
Heather uses the asanas (poses) to support mental, spiritual, and emotional peace, as well as physical strength. Heather's goal is to help lead her students down their path of personal growth (physically, mentally, and spiritually), strength and understanding.
