Heather is a Children’s Registered Yoga Teacher and teaches yoga for ages 2 to 15. After practicing yoga since 2011, she has combined her love of teaching and yoga by completing a Children's Yoga Teacher Training with Deven Sisler at Namaspa Yoga Community, in Bend. Heather has a passion for sparking an interest in kids for their natural gifts and helping them to develop that through yoga and fitness. Her classes are meaningful, fun, engaging, and accepting. The students are challenged at their pace and fostered in a non-competitive environment. Yoga with children offers many possibilities to lay the foundation for a lifelong practice that will continue to deepen as they age.
Heather felt early on that she was called to do something with her life that involved children. She went onto get her Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Physical Education from Western Oregon, and her Master's Degree from Oregon State. Heather has been a school teacher since 2003. She also teaches kids classes for Parks and Recreation and serves on the Oregon Department of Education Physical Education Content Panel. Heather is married to her high school sweetheart and has two daughters. When she is not at yoga, Heather is with her family and loves enjoying the non-scheduled moments with them.
