Heather Church is certified in Integrative Hatha Yoga by the Samyoga Institute, and teaches movement and awareness from this perspective, as well as incorporating Vinyasa, Yin, and Restorative. Practices are always well rounded, challenging students to find their edge while respecting their bodies and most classes are heart-centered, philosophy based and introspective in nature.
Heather found yoga in 1998, became certified to teach in 2007 and is accredited by the National Yoga Alliance as an RYT 200. Humbled and grateful for her journey thus far, she is forever a student. Since her 200 hour training with Janice George at the Center for Wholeness, she's completed certifications in Yoga Anatomy, Yin, Science of the Private Lesson, Prenatal, Pranayama, Thai Yoga Massage and Yoga for Athletes. She is currently enrolled in EmbodiYoga's 300 hour YTT and will be applying for RYT 500 status upon completion.
