Growing up in the small town of Needville, Tx, Heather was first introduced to yoga by a Denise Austin DVD. She didn't know what chatarunga meant, but knew it was fun to say. Being an athlete most of her life, she found the space to be, breath, feel and create shapes with the body a nice change from the performance based activities. She started her practice at Awakened Yoga in 2014. After about a month of feeling awkward, she settled into this beautiful love story with her body, mind, and soul. Fine tuned focus, tension and pain relief, easier breathing, blossoming self love, and most of all space to create her best self all came into the picture.
After about a year of practicing here, Heather enjoyed the atmosphere and students so much, she started working the front desk on the side. She then went on to finish her 200 HR R-YTT in early 2017 at Awakened Yoga Studio, where she enjoys giving back the goodness that has been received through this Divine practice. Now Heather is the happy manager of the studio.
She encourages staying in tune with your inner drum, your breath, letting yoga meet you where you are at, and together forming a harmonious song.
