Heather is both a recovery coach and yoga teacher who has dedicated her life to serving the underserved. She
taught English and public speaking in a priority district for nearly twenty years and now serves the recovery
community in a threefold capacity -- as a yoga teacher, a recovery coach, and a wellness advocate. Heather
teaches Recovery Yoga and Gentle Yoga, and also has training in other yoga disciplines, including yin.
Heather spent many years as a high school teacher, but knew she needed a change. Teaching yoga seemed a
natural progression as she had been practicing yoga since the early 2000’s and credits yoga as a cornerstone of her
recovery. She was deeply inspired and intrigued by the yoga philosophy and lifestyle. She completed yoga teacher
training with Yandara Yoga and studied in both Bali and Kauai.
And In addition to her practice, Heather enjoys spending time in nature, whether it’s in asanas or hiking, and
kayaking. My practice gives me a much needed sense of balance in my life. I want to show up for my family, my
friends, my students and my son in my greatest capacity and in a way that honors presence and mindfulness.
