Heather began practicing Hot Yoga in Toronto, Canada 20 years ago. After going to her first class she was hooked on the way her body and mind felt. Over the years she became involved with a yoga clothing line called Yogagurl and started helping the founder promote, sell and market the products. The love of the Spanish language brought Heather to Spain in 2006. After several stressful years in sales in a crisis market, Heather decided to follow one of her life long dreams to become a certified yoga instructor. Heather has been lucky to have been trained under Baron Baptiste (Baptiste Power Hot Yoga), Ted Grand (Moksha Hot Yoga), Alex Leikermoser a.k.a. yogagurl and the Tribe yoga instructors, Scarlett and Raquel. Heather is certified in teaching hot vinyasa and prenatal yoga.
Her background in business and marketing has allowed her to help yoga teachers follow their dreams in her 1 on 1 yoga business coaching services. She is now also offering healing shamanic breath work 1 on 1 as she feels it really helps people let go of their problems and live a happier life! Heather feels such joy in helping others make their dreams come true and is always open and honest about how she opened her yoga studio.
