Off and on for the past fifteen years I have taken yoga with varying experiences. It wasn’t until I started classes with Heidi that I really begin to appreciate the importance of yoga to my general well-being.

Heidi is always well prepared. She changes her lessons just enough that there is variety and is always willing to listen to her students so as to fit their needs into the class.

The parks department is extremely fortunate to have an instructor of such high quality. I hope the department will do everything possible to keep Heidi.


I spent eighteen months trying different yoga classes and was so fortunate to find Heidi. I started by taking one yoga class from her and now try to go twice weekly. If I have to miss because of travel I can feel the difference. (I am over 65 and I find that muscles tighten up more quickly than they used to do). Heidi always suggests variations on the poses we do and never pushes people to do more than they feel that they should do. Heidi also has the most gentle, accepting nature and I think everyone must feel as comfortable as I do in her class, because she has an enthusiastic following.
