"Heather Feather" was Heather's nickname growing up and it suits her well.
Feathers inspire and that is just what Heather aspires to do for YOU!
Heather's journey in health began after her father died from a rare neurological disease called Multiple Systems Atrophe in 1999. In the first month of her Freshman year at Lake Forest College her entire world shifted. A significant transformation began when Heather started practicing yoga and running to cope with the loss. Heather was on a destructive path during her teenage years and she chose to move in the direction of health which brought forth true healing and growth.
She has not turned back and wishes to bring the healing and transformational powers of a healthy lifestyle with a focus on yoga, exercise and healthy eating.
Heather teaches in a dynamic and firm, yet non-threatening way. She always brings something new to the table whether that be in a class atmosphere, bootcamp, private training/yoga or retreats. She brings a multifaceted approach to health & wellness with her in-depth knowledge of the yoga practice, exercise and diet. Heather is strongly intuitive and steps deeply into the present moment with you to give the best service possible. She almost always combines exercise and yoga in her offerings and sometimes even a healthy, delicious treat!
Heather continues to study and attends workshops at least twice a year to stay fresh and to provide you with the best! She trained extensively at YogaHome in Cincinnati, OH and is highly influenced by internationally known teachers such as Sianna Sherman, Shiva Rea, Rod Stryker, Rodney Yee, Janet Stone and Anna Forrest. Heather also attends ACE Fitness workshops to stay up to date with exercise based knowledge.
