HEATHER wishes to share the life-changing gift of yoga by making it real and accessible for EVERY body! Heather is E-RYT, Accessible Yoga and Curvy Yoga certified. As a member of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition, she is a fierce advocate for body image positivity, and loves nurturing her students with down-to-earth exploration of breath, awareness, movement and compassion. In her teaching, Heather enjoys working with people from all walks of life, particularly those who otherwise have felt unsure, unseen or shut out in previous yoga and movement experiences, and she specializes in teaching yoga and radical self-acceptance to bigger-bodied students.
Curvy Yoga is an empowering yoga class, where bigger-bodied students can practice (re)connecting to themselves! The laid-back atmosphere encourages you to ask questions, explore variations, and learn about movement that fits YOUR body. We are owning our shape unapologetically, and learning to listen to our bodies through movement, breath, and a healthy dose of candidness – we are keeping’ it real! This is not watered-down yoga, there are no assumptions made about your capabilities based on your size or shape. This safe and supportive community teaches you how to work with your body, to appreciate your body, and to see what your body can and was meant to do. It is appropriate for beginner and experienced yogis alike. It is an active – although not vigorous – class, best suited for students who are able to get up and down from the floor with relative ease.
