Heather discovered her practice through Anusara Yoga. For her, yoga is all about offering balance between the mind, body and spirit. As a NYS Certified Theatre Arts Educator, Heather works with children every day. She initially sought out children’s yoga training to support her creative drama students, but eventually creative drama began to support her yoga students! Children change and grow so quickly, and are in constant need of balance. Yoga and drama are so complimentary of each other: both support a child’s need to play while focusing on their physical, creative, social, emotional, and behavioral development; and both get richer with practice.
In 2007 Heather received her Karma Kids Yoga teacher certificate and has continued training with Little Flower Yoga, Shakta Kaur Khalsa, and most recently, Circus Yoga with Kevin O’Keefe & Erin Maile! Children love to play, and they love yoga because it feels terrific. The most gorgeous thing about teaching children yoga, is that it offers children strong tools to help them cope with the changes in their bodies as well as life’s ups & downs. Namasté.
