She received her yoga therapy training from the School of Integrative Yoga Therapy and is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.

Heather is also a master facilitator with nationally based Turning the Wheel productions, an intergenerational dance/theater company which creates therapeutic & community based programs rooted in creative expression and play.
Her playful personality infuses Heather’s teaching. She loves working with people of all ages and abilities to discover “what’s possible”. Her teaching embodies slow yoga (gentle, restorative, somatic) practices which invite a deep nourishment of the nervous system, mindfulness, and a sense of curiosity. These movement explorations enable the student to better access their deeper wisdom, creativity, vitality, joy and well being thus awakening the deep wonders of the human body and it’s potential.
