Heidi has been inspired by the philosophical and physical practices of yoga for over 20 years. Yoga and holistic health are her GPS for navigating through life with mindfulness, emotional well-being, self-care, and joy.
Heidi’s sincere, fun and creative teaching style blends together the spiritual roots of Hatha Yoga, holistic health principles, playful expression, and awakened breathing. She provides a positive space for students to connect with their authentic inner GPS, so they can rejuvenate and nurture their body, mind and spirit with joy and ease. Essential oils are often used in Heidi’s classes as a natural, aromatic way to support students’ health and jazz up their state of mind.
Heidi completed her 200-hour yoga training with 3rd Street Yoga, and her Pre/Postnatal yoga training with Yoga Matrika. Heidi’s passion and interest in women-centered wellness inspired her to start the BlissMama Yoga Program in 2011, which includes pre and postnatal yoga classes and a Birthing workshop for partners. She has also been a DONA-trained Birth Doula since 2013 and a certified AromaTouch Technique practitioner since 2015.
From 2011 – 2015, Heidi was the apprentice to her mentor, Joanne VandenHengel, and served as an assistant instructor for 3rd Street Yoga’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. In 2016, Heidi transitioned to Lead Instructor and now facilitates the 200-hour curriculum under her personal business, Moonbow Yoga and Wellness. She currently offers her teacher trainings at BlissBlissBliss.
When not on the yoga mat, Heidi may be found using her essential oils, crafting, cooking, singing to her three daughters, or spending downtime in the NOW with her supportive husband and family.
Heidi would love to see you in a class soon! She is also available for specialized private yoga sessions for individuals or small groups. These private sessions are great for exploring one’s personal goals, or to get a group together for some collective yoga fun. Namaste!
