Heather’s love and devotion to her own personal transformation, balance and fulfillment has provided her with the ability to compassionately and skillfully reveal what she has learned to those she mentors. She sees the ancient teachings of yoga as the foundation for how she lives a balanced and meaningful life and incorporates this ancient science into all area’s she studies and reveals from. Heather believes Yoga is a way of life that has the capacity to transform any moment it is lived from darkness into Light, from fear to Love. When she was asked to open a yoga studio after the studio she had been working for closed she took on the challenge whole heartily. Heather ran, taught and saw private clients at Santosha Yoga Studio in RI for 8 years before she sold the studio to 3 of her original students.

“Being a shy introvert when I agreed to open the studio, it was through the process of running the studio, teaching, managing and inspiring; teachers, students and volunteers that I truly found myself. Yoga awakened me to my life and allowed me to not run away from but to face the challenges I perceived. Previously I felt too afraid and insignificant to share the inborn gifts I had with other people. It was through practicing and teaching yoga that I realized how much Love I had to offer the world!”
Through her own experimentation and in-depth training, Heather expresses the ancient teachings of yoga in a powerful and easy to comprehend way. She now uses the wisdom she uncovered within her self to help reveal that same Light to those she mentors. Heather lives and taught at the Amrit Yoga Institute, learning from one of the last Guru’s who brought yoga to the west in the 1960’s, Yogi Amrit Deasi. Heather has taken what she has learned from Yogi Amrit Desai and her own experiences in her yoga practice and how she applied yoga to her every day life.
“Yoga is the foundational element I used to create a bridge between the part of myself that saw me as limited and my limitless self. Because that bridge has now been created I am devoted to helping other’s discover within themselves the same bridge. The more I support another's personal growth and transformation the more the bridge is strengthened within myself. Therefore it is my heart felt wish to do my job so well that my services become unnecessary.”
Heather has been practicing yoga since 2002 and took her first Amrit Yoga teacher training in 2006. After continuing her education by taking Amrit Yoga Nidra facilitator training, Advanced Amrit Yoga and Amrit Yoga Body Psychology she is registered with Yoga Alliance as an ERYT 500. Heather is also a Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant. She has worked with clients privately for over 10 years and taught in all of the above mentioned training’s either at her own yoga studio or at the Amrit Yoga Institute. Heather felt she had fulfilled her mission of supporting the Santosha community enough to step away and allow new leaders to emerge and continue their growth in RI. This allowed her to continue her inward journey at the Amrit Yoga Institute.
Heather uses what she has learned to reveal to other’s their own personal strength which facilities living a purposeful and powerful life from a place of physical, mental and emotional balance and joy. She fuses what she learned from her studies in yoga, psychology, Reiki, Thai, A Course in Miracles and her own personal revelations creating a bridge to her limitless nature in order to reveal light and truth within her clients.
