Heather first met with Buddhist teachings in the Fall of 2000, and has since spent her time avidly exploring the nature of mind. Drawn initially to the teachings on emptiness and the Lojong practices of training the mind, she studied almost exclusively within a westernized-Tibetan tradition for her first decade of practice. Her path then led her in the direction of nondual teachings, Vipassana practices, and generally into a more embodied somatic approach. Most recently, Heather has taken up asana practice and will graduate a year-long 200-hour yoga teacher training program at the end of 2017.
Over the years, Heather has led regular meditation sessions and workshops. Her main interest has been to introduce simple meditation and mindfulness practices without cultural or religious trappings, and to encourage others – whatever their background or beliefs – to build and sustain a daily practice of stillness and inner reflection.
Heather is an independent graphic designer by trade, who lives and loves with her husband, teenage stepkids and two teeny tiny wiener dogs in Port Colborne, Ontario.
My yoga journey started a long time ago. I have always been interested in the physical practice, the quietness it brings to the mind and the healing benefits of yoga. I can attest to the fact that yoga is for every “body” and every mind. My day job can be very stressful and more recently I have been challenged by physical limitations. I have found solace in yoga and meditation. I have practiced Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Birkim and Restorative yoga.I was drawn to teacher training at Yoga Truly as a way to deepen my understanding of yoga philosophy and make yoga a daily part of my life. I have truly benefited from the practice of restorative yoga and believe that it should be part of every yogi’s practice. Through the use of props, prolonged holding of simple poses and pranayama, restorative yoga deepens relaxation and promotes physical and emotional healing. It expands our consciousness and awareness of the body, mind and spirit. Having the opportunity to teach restorative yoga allows me to share this passion and the benefits of it with others!
