Meet Heather–a double 500-hour certified E-RYT 500; a Yoga Medicine Registered Therapeutics Specialist; and a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) with Yoga Alliance– and the owner of OmBodies Yoga. Her Vinyasa yoga classes feature challenging, creative sequences with an emphasis on precision cueing and healthy alignment. She uses these elements in combination with a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology to draw in other aspects of the yoga practice, such as pranayama and meditation.
Practicing yoga since the Fall of 2000 and teaching for over 16 years, Heather completed her first teacher training program in 2005–the 200-hour Teacher Training Program with Sivananda Yoga in 2005. She then went on to complete the Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Works in NYC in 2006. Still looking to expand her skills set and deepen her knowledge base, she then completed the 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training at Moksha in 2014, and has most recently, completed her second 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training Certification with Tiffany Cruikshank & Yoga Medicine.
Heather opened OmBodies Yoga Studio in 2009 and has developed two successful teacher training programs: the OmBodies Foundational 200-hourl and the OmBodies Advanced Teacher Training, both of which are registered with Yoga Alliance.
With a deep appreciation and respect for the focus and discipline that the yoga practice helps to develop, she also truly enjoys the creative, explorative, and sometimes playful expression of ourselves that can come from our practice, believing that “This beautiful, multi-faceted practice offers us the opportunity to discover and explore so many aspects of who we really are!”
We’re excited to partner with Heather this fall to bring her perspective and experience to our students through Yoga Alliance-recognized Teacher Trainings. Visit our Events and Trainings pages to learn more about registering for training with Heather and Heights Yoga Project!
