Her fresh and innovative approach to yoga is both precise and wild around the edges, bringing us into an intimate awareness of our being, and inviting us to taste the magnificent simplicity of what is. Heidi is at ease with herself and helps us feel that way, too.

A daydreamer by nature but not lacking the determination to pursue technique as a means to realize her dream, Heidi studied modern dance at North Carolina School of the Arts, graduating with a BFA in 1981. While pursuing a professional dance career in New York City she discovered yoga at Jivamukti in 1991, which led her to study in the Iyengar tradition with Genevieve Kapuler and Rodney Yee, Light Body energy work and meditation with Diane Goldner, and movement with Martha Yoshida. She is currently studying Q'ero Shamanism with The Four Winds Society and is a full mesa carrier.

Heidi acknowledges the influence her wonderful teachers and students have had on her life including her parents, sisters, husband Chris, and sons Elias and Wyatt. She has been teaching on Shelter Island since 1995 and at Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor since 1999. She was part of the faculty of the Yoga Shanti Teacher Training 2009-2014, she leads retreats, and offers a 200 hour Teacher Training at The Giving Room in Southold, NY.
