I came to yoga as a means of coping with anxiety and depression after my divorce. It was so immediately and powerfully helpful that in 2015, I signed up for yoga teacher training through Hot Asana Yoga University. About midway through my training, I began to look into the applications of yoga for survivors of trauma. Since graduating in 2016 I have taken additional trainings in Core Strength Yoga as well as several Trauma-Informed approaches, including a 20 hour workshop with David Emerson, the father of Trauma Sensitive Yoga, whith whom I plan to continue my studies in pursuit of my 300 hour certificate.
All of my classes are trauma-informed and interoceptive, which means I take a hands-off, personalized and intimate approach that is more concerned with how you feel in your body than what the shapes look like.
I look forward to sharing this beautiful, healing practice with you.
Heidi began her yoga journey in 2012 during a period of self-reflection and lifestyle changes. She realized that learning yoga asanas from a video was not fulfilling her needs, and sought out in person yoga classes. And that’s where she met Karen Maute, whom changed her whole understanding of what “yoga” was. Her curiosity was awakened to explore more. She enrolled and completed K10 Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training. Heidi’s style of yoga is slow and steady one asana at a time. Off the mat, Heidi is always looking for that next hiking trail for her Slough Hiking team to tackle as they enjoy nature’s beauty one step at a time.
When Kristi took her first yoga class in 2017 she immediately felt like she found her people. Since then she has continued her own practice and appreciation for yoga.
Kristi decided to push herself to deepen her practice by joining a 5 month teacher training. She graduated in May of 2022 as a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher through K10-Yoga.
Kristi believes that yoga is a constant practice that is for everyone and everybody. She aims to create a safe and welcoming space for all.
Some styles she enjoys incorporating in classes are restorative, Yin, breath work and simply focusing on connecting the mind & body.
Kristi hopes to see you in an upcoming class!
