Participants’ experience

Heather is an inspiring, no-nonsense teacher, who manages to combine authority with humility. She combines precise teachings from Iyengar with the breath and movement of Ashtanga to bring an enlivening practice drenched with gentle reminders that you already know how to do yoga. Whereas some yoga teachers are too physical, others too spiritual, hearing Heather teach is like listening to a fellow practitioner who has followed the same path you yourself are on, carried by inspiration and hard work rather than a feeling that the teacher is some kind of super human being whose heights we could never attain.

– Jonathan Ekstrom

Heather’s main strong points: wealth of knowledge; bringing us deep; not afraid of whatever emotion might come up. Thank you very much for that. I cannot imagine many teachers who I would have dared to go in the trauma of my lower back by exploring backbends. I recommend this if: you’re looking for a journey inwards and confrontation with self; love precise alignment and eager to learn about props; love for finding your own yoga voice.

– Houkje Berger

I am deeply impressed by the care and attention that Heather puts into her teaching. My own practice transformed as a result of the experience, as a hard-core Ashtangi, who often pushed my body beyond its limits, I am now softer and more compassionate towards myself and as a result towards others. I know others with soft, gentle practices have discovered strength and endurance they didn’t know was inside them. I have emerged from this experience with a deeper understanding of yoga and myself
