Yoga Instructor

Heather, an E-RYT500 registered instructor with Yoga Alliance, has been teaching yoga full time since 1998. Her teaching is grounded in her training and studies integrating Yin and Yang (active Hatha) styles of yoga, hands-on healing modalities, mindfulness practices and indigenous ceremony ways. She has maintained a consistent and evolving personal practice since 1996. She has trained extensively, studying with a variety of teachers including Erich Schiffmann, Lisa Walford, Ana Forrest and Sarah Powers as well as continuing education in working with injuries, health conditions, and differently abled populations. Integrating these deeply transformational traditions, Heather’s classes not only adapt yoga to the individual, but also offer an opportunity for healing the injuries, stresses, trauma and the underlying conditioning that blocks our potential and limits our lives. She skillfully guides people of all ages and levels with her practical, focused, and sensitive individualized instruction.


Rae’s passion for yoga began in 2014 when she initially turned to the practice for it’s physical benefits following a knee injury. Quickly, she found a spaciousness and truthfulness in her body she never thought possible. An athlete since childhood, she has had an intuitive sense for movement in the body as well as an understanding of the importance of a strong foundation, both physically and mentally.

Rae studied in Rishikesh, India where she completed her YTT500 with a focus in Vinyasa, Hatha, anatomy, pranayama, and the use of props. Her passion is to teach yoga to anybody, everybody, and every body wanting a deeper understanding of their body from its foundation up. Without a solid and purposeful foundation, we give our bodies nothing with which to build on. Without foundation, there can be no understanding and without understanding, there can be no growth. In her classes, students will breathe, move to music, explore, and play by moving the body through various shapes. It is through these shapes that she hopes students might come to meet their truest selves-perhaps even for the first time.
