"Through an early cancer scare, sugar addiction, chronic illnesses, depression and chronic pain, I’ve repeatedly woken up to the realization that my health is in nobody’s hands but my own. With the support of amazing teachers and quiet self-discovery, I’ve experienced profound self-healing. The power of the mind and body to self-regulate, heal and thrive is my life’s work. I am here to be helpful."

My Philosophy

As a personal development and awareness facilitator from 1995 to 2002, Heidi’s passion for empowering people emerged. She has been guiding, teaching, and leading, in one form or another, ever since. 

 

I believe health is our natural state and is living naturally and becoming who you really are. Health is a chill, relaxed and natural state. It’s practicing a life of ease. 

Offering retreats, workshops and training in the United States, India, Mexico and Costa Rica, her yogic teachings feature a dharma-rich, gently demanding practice with an emphasis on yoga as a practice ground for life.

The addition of SUP Board Yoga to her personal practices and teachings has been an extreme delight!
