"I come to the Monday night yoga class to start my week off with a sense of hope and reflection as to what I wish to accomplish for the week in terms of physical & mental goals. The class fills my body and mind with positive energy. I learn something new about what my body can do. The classes help me to maintain my strength, flexibility, and endurance. The classes help me to feel the sense of pleasure in moving. Thank-you so much for your absolutely remarkable classes."
"My favourite description for you is infectious enthusiasm! Love you Heather."
"Heather - you must be psychic as you somehow know what I need...you suggest a move and it's exactly what I need that night. How do you do that?"
"I really enjoy the themes and environment / atmosphere created by Heather. The music selection fits very well with the class themes and helps me get into the moment & further enjoy the class. I really enjoy the focus on planting into the earth and the visualizations used to assist in achieving that. This class truly re-energizes me."
"This class provides me with a way to hit my reset button and go back into my life with a renewed point of view. It is a great way to exhaust stress through a balance of physical and mental workout."
"I come to this class as it provides me with the opportunity to stretch and strengthen my tight muscles. I also enjoy the socialization and positive reinforcement. Heather makes it a joy to come to class. I always go home feeling like I have done something positive for myself."
"I am so happy to finally be able to return to Heather's yoga! The release of heavy shoulders is hugely a part of the program. The upbeat music / calming voice / spiritual / mental uplifting and support is so amazing. Always something wonderful to look forward to. It starts my week in a positive way. Wish it were every night! Puts one in touch with themselves in more ways than one."
"Your spirit is infectious and loving. I love your positive, joyous energy. The class helps me to bring balance to my busy schedule. I love the physicality of your classes and how you offer modifications and extensions."
"I connect with this class because the music / movement / breath / messages fuel me. The variation keeps me engaged. The message that introduces the class is reflected on long after the class / session is done. Heather - you are pure energy and love and I am grateful for this time because it's all I have for myself all week. I love when you come around at the end of the class to press down on my shoulders. It is grounding & connects me to you. I also love how you bring the global scene into the class mantras."
"I enjoy and am learning so much from your classes. You have a very balanced class and are always challenging and encouraging. Very masterful."
"I love that you are both sporty and spiritual. The yoga flows, core exercise, and the shavasana."
Wednesday AM Yoga: Mind & Body
"You are a wonderful, clear, instructive, hands on teacher but above all I can feel your passion not only for what you're doing, but for connecting with every single person in the class. I also love that there is a sense of growth along a well planned path and theme, both through each class and the season itself. You can really feel that you have planned each class in advance, that you are continually growing and learning and that no two classes are the same. I also strongly resonate with the music, and with the fact that you clearly plan your music to go with your theme, and that you change it up constantly."
"Heather changed my life in a very positive way both physically and mentally. Her approach to life and her incredible ability to make every session different and meaningful is a breath of fresh air. I had the wonderful experience to be in her sessions for 3 years. I looked forward to every one of them." "I just love this class! A blissful time for the body, mind and soul as well. I love the themes of each class and how you put everything together. It flows naturally and I feel at home. It brings a lot of joy to my daily life."
"I like the combination of warm-up, standing flow, stretch & relaxation in the proportions you present them. It is a sign of a good session (to me) to have built up a good sweat before a stretching routine. Keep up the introduction of new research & philosophy of exercise physiology if you are able. I appreciate the effort you put into it and enjoy exploring further."
"I love this class. Heather is an amazing teacher. I feel very fortunate to have found this class! Her themes are right on spot with my life. I am injured and I don't feel like I am a burden at all, she makes everyone feel welcome. I like the stretching she incorporates. My core has strengthened since seeing Heather."
"I am really enjoying the athletic nature of the class. I love the music! I like the people in the class too!"
"Heather's Wed yoga class is relaxed and not rushed. It has spiritual commentary woven throughout the class, which is incredibly grounding and promotes new thinking. Respectful yoga for all ages. I never feel out of place with ability. Heather creates a caring, warm, and universally loving environment."
"I enjoy the connection you make of mind to body. The information you share with us about this connection / integration has been extremely helpful to me...Your personal stories have been especially helpful in illustrating the theories. The time you take to get to know and share your expertise with students is very much appreciated. You are an inspiration, Heather!"
"I can't imagine life without yoga. It makes me strong and flexible and happy and relaxed. Oh wait, that sounds like a glass of wine! I like that it never intimidates me and if I can't manage a pose today, I know I will be able to someday. Thank-you Heather for always keeping it fun and entertaining."
"This class has allowed me to stay connected to self, to the universe, to the breath, and to the mind & body."
Friday AM Core Floetry
"Thank you for the lovely Friday morning classes. I really cherish them. I truly appreciate all the thought and preparation you put into each class. From our heartfelt intentions, to your weekly themes, along with the coordinating music and the atmosphere of the shared practice within a community of like minded souls, I look forward to each session. Not only do I feel taller when I leave the class, I feel looser, more relaxed and at peace, more balanced, both mentally and physically. In short, much better prepared to take on the busy weekend and beyond! The commitment you bring to each class, along with your honesty and humour is a real gift you give to each of us."
"So many things I love about the Core Coaching Class. Freedom. Inclusivity. Focus. Goals in each class. I appreciate that there is adequate physical and technical challenge. I am feeling the benefits of strength & tone in specifically some of my weak spots (glutes, inner thighs, core, pelvic floor)."
"In this class I feel a complete workout for my body, mind, and soul. It is a very special time of the day where I feel that I really take the time and space to be present, reinvigorate, connect, and align to my high self. I love this class. You are the best complete teacher I've ever had."
"Wow - your insight, words of wisdom, and combining all that with a workout. I really like the peak poses whether they are easy or impossible because I can judge my progress and begin to feel like I might actually be able to do it one day."
"Heather's class is a safe place to push myself to try new things. Balance / Movement / Strength / Soul Food / Heart Medicine / Mindful / Accessing self / Thought provoking / Challenging / Inspiring / Opening / Centering / Grounding."
"Really enjoy the camradery of women in this class. Enjoy the athletic poses, flows and arm balances. Love the music!"
"I feel I have grown physically but more importantly spiritually as a result of the classes. I appreciate the themes for each class and have learned a lot. I am so grateful for all the effort and care you bring to each and every class. I really enjoy the music - it helps me focus."
" I always look forward to your class. I love that the class take us to a physical and spiritual journey. I appreciate when you share your knowledge on different authors, books, music. I look forward to continuing to challenge my body and find new ways to get physically stronger. Thank you for all your teachings and all the time you spend preparing for our class."
"Heather is the best instructor! This class keeps my body mobile as I have a back condition that could worsen without regular, daily physical activity. Heather's classes have balance flow, challenge, and freedom in all the exercises and movement phases. I am learning to be present with the physical challenges and learning to analyze the movements of the class to try to heal my physical issues. The class releases endorphins that last with me throughout the day."
