Heather Smith


Heather first turned to yoga as a path to healing from physical injury while living in Vietnam. Like a seed taking root, her simple fifteen-minute home practice grew. Curiosity and a desire to learn more, soon led her to enroll in an intensive yoga retreat in the south of Thailand. While on retreat, Heather stepped fully into the flow, and never looked back. She is now an RYT 200, having graduated from her first teacher training in India, where 22908657_10156051053182526_244664915_oshe studied the Ashtanga Primary Series with Iyengar-style props and modifications. She has since completed a second 200-hr training in the U.S., this time with a focus on biomechanics and alignment, and how they directly relate to long-term sustainability in yoga asana practice.

Whether leading Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, or Restorative-style practices, Heather seeks to weave elements of mindfulness and reconnection to Self throughout the physical practice of asana. She believes that magic abounds when we yoke our minds to body and breath. When not teaching yoga, Heather can be found studying and practicing… YOGA! She is currently in the process of completing her 500-hr teaching certification in Yoga Therapy with Sarahjoy Marsh.
