As is a mover, shaker, and lover of the arts, Heather seeks to find the authentic artistic vision that lies within each of us. She began practicing yoga in 1996 and has been teaching movement and dance for over 12 years. Heather has a specialty of working with young kids and teens as well as people with injuries. She has a passion for teaching dancers, aspiring yoga teachers, and students who yearn for creativity, growth, and knowledge. Heather has taught as an adjunct dance professor at Georgia College & State University, and Central Connecticut State University. In Heather's yoga classes, she combines her love of movement, creativity, kinesiology, and anatomy to bring clear and concise awareness to the body. Focus on alignment and the breath is paired with a challenging yet well-paced vinyasa. Her playful and compassionate approach to yoga blends rigor of asana, self-reflection, and exploration of philosophy while encouraging her students to find their own unique path to a continually evolving practice. Heather has been featured in Time-Out New York, Fox News, Well+Good NYC, Vogue Korea, and The Traveller Korea. She finds cherished guidance and inspiration under the teachings of Jenny Arthur, Chrissy Carter, Robyn Ceballos, Paula Lynch, Julie Marx, Susan "Lip" Orem, Carrie Owerko and Jeanmarie Paolillo among others.
